Having been on the Olive Lounge last year with Alper & Anouk we had no hesitation in booking a trip with them again this year. Originally this should have been on the Olive but as this boat is currently undergoing minor repairs we were lucky enough to go on the even more luxurious Lemon Lounge. We were originally due to go on the Tuesday of our week long holiday but Alper arrived at our hotel reception at 8am to explain that the weather forecast was not very good for that day and would we consider a postponement to the Thursday. We really appreciated that he had come to the hotel when he could have just phoned and we agreed to the postponement and considering the storms on the Tuesday afternoon was 100% the correct decision. The day starts at 10am and we arrived at its mooring outside the Tezcan hotel just after 9:30 having caught the hotel's courtesy dolmus to find our captain for the day Anil still eating his breakfast, but it was no problem to let us onboard and provide complimentary coffee before departure, we were on the Ekincik bay tour and this involves a lovely trip down the river past the tombs to the sea and some lovely swim stops and a fantastic BBQ lunch with 3 different meats and about 10 different salad/vegetable/pasta dishes plus bread at an extended stop whilst the captain becomes the chef. Then later in the afternoon at the beach stop lovely melon and Baklava is served.The day cost us 60tl (less than £20) I believe this is slightly more in high season and drinks are reasonable. We be back on the Olive/Lemon or Ivy (new boat for 2014) next year. Thanks to Alper, Anouk and Anil for a fantastic day out.
