There is a fast catamaran that goes from Alanya to Kyrenia on thursdays and Mondays dut stops at the end of october. it takes 4 and a half hours and is reasonably priced. Returns from Kyrenia Wednesdays and Saturdays. Otherwise they could fly from Antalya for about 59 pounds each with cyprus turkish airlines.

OK. It's easy. Check this, and look for Fergun Shipping: northcyprusonline.com/North-Cyprus-Online-Ho…

Fergun Shipping have their Alanya office in Iskele Caddesi, overlooking the harbour. I bought my ticket on July 27 this year. It cost 57.5TL. You need to add 10TL for harbour dues. The ferry is good, and there is a cafe on board. Your Luggage will be stored (safely) on deck.

Arrival in Girne is unpleasant. Be warned. Over 200 people off the boat crowded into an arrivals hall (passport contro) with just 3 immigration booths. On July 29 this year it was being refurbished and was in chaos. Waiting time, sweating profusely, was over an hour. It may be finished now. I hope so.

Incidentally, just 40m from Fergun's office in Alanya is a great hotel called Seaport Hotel. Reccomend this place. From hotel to the ferry dock is a very short walk down the slope. Easy.

There's a very good bus service from Antalya to Alanya. In Turkey bus stations are called Otogars. If you use the term it makes it easy for the taxi driver. Have a good one.

I got the overnight boat from Tasucu to Girne a couple of weeks ago. While the boat was pretty horrible, the check-in at the other side was fairly trouble-free.
