We had a brilliant time on our kayak tour. The group was small and Barbaros was full of really interesting information throughout. Semina is beautiful and the lunch was delicious. Can't fault!

A brilliant way of seeing Kekova and its stunning waters. We loved Barbaros' guidance, so informative and relaxed. Swimming stops were ace too with some nice fish and loads of natural sponges - bring your own snorkel though.

Hello Pam. We have no more regular tours in the Bodrum area unfortunately. The only solution would be a private tour for you.
