This was our 10th boat trip in Turkey, and by far the best one yet. A great day spent with two lovely families on board with Captain Ali and his son Batin as his assistant. We went on relaxing trip to the lesser known areas, avoiding all the other boats throughout the day. No music or any other sort of... More

We simply cannot wait to go back to Kaş- not least because we loved the great ocean adventures that we had with Captain Garlic and his lovely family. Second time out we went into the blue caves and were not disappointed. At first you assume it is just a dark cave but after half a minute your eyes adjust and... More

I am beginning to lose count how many times me and my husband have been out with Ali on his boat trips, but every time Ali makes it as special as the last. We visited Kas October 2016 for our wedding Anniversary and my husband's birthday, our friend who had recently been staying in Kas tried to book us a... More

Captain Garlic on Batin ( pronounced button) was excellent from the minute we stepped on board. Nothing was too much trouble, Captain Garlic speaks excellent English and provides a fantastic lunch with drinks on board (extra charge). The food was excellent, with BBQ'd fish and chicken and lots of salad and pasta. Fruit, biscuits and tea in the afternoon was... More

1. A Warm Welcome from Captain Garlic and his family upon boarding and a maximum of only 12 guests means there's loads of space. There were only 7 of us in total on our trip. 2. Batin 2 is a lovely boat and its facilities are beautifully clean (even the loos!). 3. You get to visit secluded islands and coves... More

Greeted by friendly and effervescent captain and shown aboard this immaculate gulet with gleaming polished wood, comfortable and spotlessly clean sun beds. Taken to picturesque uninhabited bays where we swam with the turtles. We were served morning and afternoon tea but the sumptuous lunch was a highlight of the day. We had a choice of two types of fish and... More

We used Trip Advisor to find Garlic Ali's Boat and were not disappointed. He tried to ensure that wherever he stopped, we were on our own. He was the epitome of a good host, very friendly and obliging and his son Batin was a good learner. Food was good but Anil in Kalkan is our yardstick and his is the... More

We have been there with my wife and she is too picky for most of the things. I have found this tour via TripAdvisor and she was suspicious if she would like it or not. And the result of the day: we should come again!:-) The captain Ali is so friendly and the boat is perfectly clean. I am telling... More

Returned again to this loverly town and harbour of Kas and once again enjoyed a fantastic day out with Captain Ali.. He is well respected and a excellent host so we all can understand why he is so well liked on TripAdvisor. His trips to lovely bays for swimming and my we add his cooking you cannot go wrong. No...
