“Wonderful as always”

Cherry Tree Boat Tours / Day Tours
Ranked #8 of 41 Tours in Oludeniz
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 30, 2013

I must admit we are fans of Salih and his crew the trip is always great value and the lunch is second to none. The boat is not massive like some you see and this leads to a more relaxed atmosphere. Salih and his crew are all very friendly and make the day go great. The views and scenery are fantastic.We loved it so much we went on three trips in one week. They intend to start evening cruises in August on a Wednesday night and we will be booking one of them, when we are back in August with the kids.

This trip is very good and very reasonably priced. We paid 50 Turkish Lira for 2 of us.

Salih is the guy you need to book with - find the Cherry Tree Boat Tours boat (called the Robin, but the Cherry Tree sign is what you will see first) in the "harbour" either in the morning (before 10:30) or in the evening (boat gets back at around 5:30pm). They prefer you not to book via the hut on the beach. If you do end up at the hut make sure to stipulate that you want the Robin

The crew are very relaxed and not at all pushy with drinks etc. They will offer chips with lunch for less than £2. These were nice, but given the sheer amount of food that they cook up you need not buy them too. The chicken was really good - a nice fillet. The fish was whole, so if you aren't keen on it looking back at you go with chicken! Also served with spaghetti, salad and potato salad. You get a slice of watermelon in the afternoon too. Drinks were reasonably priced and we took a couple of litres of frozen water with us and this was fine.

Stop offs were really for swimming, but there are some sights too. Small boats offering water sports and ice cream also draw up alongside the boat during the day, so take extra cash if you might want to take part.

We also did the 12 island trip with Hamish McTurk - cost double and although the boat was much newer and nicer the food was less good/more hassle to buy drinks/stricter on taking own drinks/less to do at the stops. On this boat we felt like we were there to make money from, rather than guests like Salih made us feel.

I went on this boat trip with my partner and we did enjoy it. although it is a bit expensive so i would advise you to take your own water with you. Upstairs on the boat where you sunbathe is a lovely view to take photos and also to catch a tan
