      A day in Kas
      The crew were magnificent, food was really good as well with variety of veg and meat options. I must say the boat is really cool. Make sure to catch the spot out at the front if you're lucky. We stopped at 4 spots for a dip, all of them were really worth it.

      This was the best boat tour I have ever been on. I didn’t realize how the entire day flew by. We enjoyed wonderful meals with an incredibly polite and friendly crew. As an environmentalist, I was deeply impressed by Captain Ergun’s campaign to collect trash from the sea. This experience was filled with unforgettable memories and is definitely an adventure I would love to have again. Highly recommended!

      An unforgettable memory trip
      From beginning to end, I had a wonderfull tour with Captain Ergun's ship. He was always nice and polite to everyone. I have an unforgettable memory thanks to this trip including beautiful coasts, gulfs, Simena Castle and the sunk city. Everthing was perfect.

      Slice of Paradise 🩵🤍💚
      The boat had a lot of options of being outdoor under the sun or under shade , and indoors! The Captain Ergun was really nice and the crew very hospitable. The toilets were kept clean through out the 8 hour journey ! The stops were so scenic and beautiful ! Absolutely loved the journey and route - and swimming was amazing ! Food was excellent for vegetarians and non vegetarians - really a good meal ! The bar was well stocked and you could keep a running tab. And the BEST THING was the most amazing drone shot the captain took of our group (and other groups or couples) - once in a lifetime memory captured to perfection at the most scenic spot. ABSOLUTELY LOVED EVERYTHING about this trip ! An absolute MUST DO for anyone coming to Kas

      The captain is super hospitable and nice. He has taken free videos from drone for us! The lunch was varied. The boat is very comfortable and clean! THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEAT AT THE BRIDGE IN THE BEGINNING IS REALLY BREATH TAKING

      Most Amazing Turquoise Coast Experiences
      We had the most amazing time chartered a private boat for 3 days from Kas via Captain Ergun and his fantastic team on board Mert (Captain) & Busch (Chef). The boat were spacey and clean and functional throughout an entire stay. the bed was comfortable and several lounging areas to relax. The food were absolutely scrumptious from Hardy breakfast to authentic lunch following by fresh produce sizzling grilled with few side dishes. We enjoyed beautiful scenery and stop over at most gorgeous bays and sites that Turkey has to offer. The quality of sleep under the stars, and the sound of waves are something to be remembered. we love the experience and we will definitely come back again with our children.

      Mesmerizing Cruise at Kas
      This was probably one of my best boat trip experience, even though we are living in Thailand, and I’ve experienced other cruises I must say this one is a must. The crew on board Mert & Boosh did an excellent job. Mert the captain and Boosh the chef . The food was exceptional and authentic. The boat doesn’t move at night which make it very easy to sleep, so no need to worry about this. We are actually planning to come back with our friends as we loved it very much

      Friendly host, no rush, ample swim time, great food
      Exceptional private boat trip experience! The host's relaxed demeanour made the journey truly enjoyable. He never rushed us, allowing plenty of time to leisurely swims, and explore the sunken city. Plus, the delicious food he prepared onboard was a delightful bonus. Highly recommendend!

      Fantastic Tour with a Cheerful Captain
      I had an amazing experience on this tour with Captain Ergün! He was so cheerful and friendly throughout the entire journey. His positive energy was contagious and made the tour even more enjoyable. I was also impressed by the fact that he took drone shots for free, giving us a unique perspective of the area. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a fun and memorable experience. Thank you, Captain Ergün, for a wonderful time! Greetings and love to you!

      A day well spent !
      At times picking one of these trips can seem a bit of a bombardment of details. We set off from Kas, it was a great sunny day. The visit to the little inlets for swimming was superb. I would take your own decent snorkel if you like that sort of thing. The day was a full day boating and swimming and we all loved it. The boat was clean & tidy. The food was very well presented and tasty. Found it a good way to see another side of the area and get a feel for it. Would recommend this day out to anyone.

    We had an excellent experience having a day boat trip with Captain Ergun. Everything was as per schedule, very good timing with departure and swimming stops. The crew was very helpful and proactive, the food was as per selected option (selection is available in advance). A lot of sun, site seeing and excellent emotions.

    Thank you Mr. Ergun.

    Couldn’t fault this trip. The boat was lovely, the crew were so friendly and the trip itself was beautiful. There were loads of swim stops (with a few good fish) and our tour guide Ergun was very knowledgable about the Sunken City - in both English and Turkish! Lunch was fantastic and we stayed out for the whole day. He even got the drone out and sent everyone snaps.

    All for £30. Loved it, thanks everyone!

    A full day of fun activities. Really accommodating and welcoming staff who made sure we could sit together. The lunch was really hearty and tasty. I'd recommend getting there in good time in order to secure a lounger on the top deck, with front row views of the sea. I particularly enjoyed the Kekova stop, a really pretty area and recommend having some cash on you as there's lots of lovely stalls there. Amazing ice cream too (I will be dreaming of the walnut and honey flavour for a long time!) We didn't pay to go into the castle but I think this was only about £1 each (20 lira), but we walked further along and still gained some amazing views. We would definitely book a trip with Captain Ergen again, and try something different next time as he offers lots of trips.

    If you only have the chance to do one thing while you are staying in Kas, make sure it’s this!

    For a very reasonable price we received a full day tour, including a delicious lunch and multiple swim stops. Additionally, the trip provides a well worth visit to the small town and fortress at Kekova!

    Apart from the amazing natural scenery and beautiful sights along the way, the staff were phenomenal and went above and beyond, providing free drone photos to other guests and frequently providing refreshments on the upper deck.

    Well worth making time to do this tour!

    It was a great tour on Ergun’s boat! The food, cleanliness and drinks offered were fabulous! The staff was so attentive, too. We felt like it was a much needed get away during our vacation in Kalkan. We took a cab to Kas where the tour launched. The cab ride was about half an hour and it cost $25! Overall, I highly recommend Captain Ergun to anyone considering a boat tour. We wanna come back and do a multiple day tour on a private boat next year. He even found me an ankle bracelet while diving and gave me it as a present. He was a fab host! Thank you Ergun!

    The all day boat trip to the sunken city of Kekova and Simena castle plus 4 stops for swimming, was a highlight of our stay in Kas. Captain Ergun and the crew made sure we were looked after from start to finish and fortunately all the information was imparted in English as well as Turkish. Very clean and tidy onboard. Highly recommended and great value. They also do many other trips, so ask at their tour office as the staff there are also very helpful.

    The website states that groups are limited to 65 - implying that no more than 65 passengers would be on the boat. During our trip there were between 85 and 90 passengers. In my view this is deceiving. There wasn't an open seat on the boat - it was very crowded. We had to sit below, facing aft, and the only area available to stand was at the back of the boat which was the area designated for smoking. We might have gotten better seating if we had arrived much earlier, but we arrived at the time indicated on the instructions we received. The locations where the boat stopped were great but with 80 to 90 people trying to get in and out of the water - the experience was very disappointing.

    Dear guest, Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding your recent trip with us. We sincerely apologize for any confusion or inconvenience regarding the discrepancy between the stated group limit on our website and the actual number of passengers on board during your journey. Your concerns about overcrowding and seating arrangements are valid, and we understand how this would impact your experience negatively. We acknowledge that the overcrowded conditions, particularly during stops for swimming, detracted from the enjoyment of your trip. We regret that you were unable to find suitable seating and that the designated standing area was not conducive to a pleasant experience due to smoking.

We appreciate your understanding and hope that you will consider giving us another opportunity to provide you with a more enjoyable experience in the future. Best regards, The Boat Crew

    The last-minute trip decision turned into one magnificent day. Everything starting from the reservation process to stepping on land at the end of a trip was absolutely worth it. A marvellous combination of swimming, sunbathing, great lunch (a selection of meat, chicken or fish meals) and sightseeing with plenty of time for each. October is a great time to take a tour as it's less crowded than during a high season, making hiking to the castle more pleasant and still a great temperature of the sea. Big shout out to an amazing crew and cooks for their kindness, welcoming attitude and professionalism.

    This is a fantastic boating tour experience. We were offered cheaper tours but I looked at the reviews of Captain Ergun & messaged him directly and decided to take a chance and do this tour. All I can say is we got everything we wanted in this Kekova boat tour. My boys had so much fun jumping off the boat & swimming in the beautiful blue waters. Captain Ergun is a peoples captain...he greets you when you arrive & when you leave as well, he does this with a smile and is very professional. I wish more tour operators were like him. His crew is very efficient and know exactly how to run a smooth tour. The chicken/fish dinner was more then enough to satisfy the most hungry person. The boat had enough space where you did not feel overcrowded. This is not a party boat so no loud music, just people enjoying the sea & beautiful scenery around. I could go on but this is definitely my favorite boat tour so far, Captain Ergun is pure class!

    Thank you for sharing your fantastic boating tour experience! It sounds like you had an amazing time exploring Kekova with Captain Ergun and his crew. Choosing based on reviews and direct communication with the captain was a smart move, and it's wonderful to hear that it paid off so well. It's great to hear that your boys had a blast swimming in the beautiful blue waters and enjoying the activities on the boat. Captain Ergun's professionalism and warm hospitality seem to have left a lasting impression on you, and it's heartening to know that he and his crew went above and beyond to ensure a smooth and enjoyable tour for everyone. The description of the delicious dinner and the spacious yet uncrowded boat adds to the appeal of the experience. It's clear that Captain Ergun's approach creates a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere without the need for loud music or excessive partying, allowing guests to truly appreciate the sea and scenery. Thank you for sharing your favorite boat tour experience, and for highlighting Captain Ergun's exemplary service. Your recommendation speaks volumes, and I'm sure many others will be inspired to embark on their own memorable journey with Captain Ergun and his crew. Wishing you many more wonderful adventures on the seas! Best regards, Captain Ergun

    This was a really enjoyable and interesting trip. Captain Ergun has a marvellous boat. It is much faster than the others that set off from the harbour slightly earlier, so don't worry when they leave before you, you will overtake most of them on the way to the first stop. The crew are very professional and friendly. We were given tea and cake in the morning, watermelon in the afternoon after we'd been exploring Kekova, and a fantastic lunch. You can buy beer and other drinks and snacks from the bar.
    Also, I've been on a lot of boats and this one has the cleanest and most pleasant toilets I've ever encountered. Not the sort of thing I normally get excited about, but they are very nice!
    The scenery, above and below the water, is spectacular and I think we had 3 stops to snorkel and dive off the boat. Kekova is a very interesting place, all decked out with locals selling their stuff but without being pushy. I got a great sense of history in general on the trip, the semi sunken ruins of the old cities that were destroyed in an ancient earthquake are spectacular.
    Finally, Captain Ergun is a great bloke who is very knowledgeable and likes a laugh. His main priority seems to be that his customers are happy.
