Captain Garlic on Batin ( pronounced button) was excellent from the minute we stepped on board. Nothing was too much trouble, Captain Garlic speaks excellent English and provides a fantastic lunch with drinks on board (extra charge). The food was excellent, with BBQ'd fish and chicken and lots of salad and pasta. Fruit, biscuits and tea in the afternoon was... More

1. A Warm Welcome from Captain Garlic and his family upon boarding and a maximum of only 12 guests means there's loads of space. There were only 7 of us in total on our trip. 2. Batin 2 is a lovely boat and its facilities are beautifully clean (even the loos!). 3. You get to visit secluded islands and coves... More

Greeted by friendly and effervescent captain and shown aboard this immaculate gulet with gleaming polished wood, comfortable and spotlessly clean sun beds. Taken to picturesque uninhabited bays where we swam with the turtles. We were served morning and afternoon tea but the sumptuous lunch was a highlight of the day. We had a choice of two types of fish and... More

We used Trip Advisor to find Garlic Ali's Boat and were not disappointed. He tried to ensure that wherever he stopped, we were on our own. He was the epitome of a good host, very friendly and obliging and his son Batin was a good learner. Food was good but Anil in Kalkan is our yardstick and his is the... More

We have been there with my wife and she is too picky for most of the things. I have found this tour via TripAdvisor and she was suspicious if she would like it or not. And the result of the day: we should come again!:-) The captain Ali is so friendly and the boat is perfectly clean. I am telling... More

Returned again to this loverly town and harbour of Kas and once again enjoyed a fantastic day out with Captain Ali.. He is well respected and a excellent host so we all can understand why he is so well liked on TripAdvisor. His trips to lovely bays for swimming and my we add his cooking you cannot go wrong. No...

My boyfriend and I had heard about the Batin tour from one of our friends that live in Kas and we decided to give it a go. We loved it so much that we went twice in our one week holiday. Ali is a great captain and host and the food we had on the boat was probably the best... More

This is without doubt the best boat tour in Turkey. Capt. 'Garlic' Ali and his son Batin are great. The boat is a perfect size, very comfortable and comes with snorkels and a canoe which is great for exploring when moored up. If you want a boat tour in Kas then Capt Garlic is your man.
