Which boat trip?

Hi all

We're arriving in Kalkan in just over 2 weeks. Because we're a) only there for 8 days and b) doing a lot of sightseeing in Istanbul beforehand, we aren't keen on a full itinerary of excursions and activities.

However, we would like to do a boat trip. We can't decide whether to do a Kalkan boat trip on Yildiz or go further afield and do the Kekova trip. We want a relaxing day at sea, swimming in lovely water, some good views and a good lunch!

Any recommendations on which one to choose would be really appreciated!

Thanks :-)

Yildiz - no contest. It fulfils your brief entirely.

The Sea Bella is amazing, Captain Mehmet owns and runs the boat, has a boat building business and arranges a fantastic day for you. It depends what you want but it is a large boat with plenty of cabin areas and shaded table areas for you to relax as well as plenty of roof and desk space for sun worship. There are also plenty of mattresses and huge bean bag seats.

Food was plentiful, well cooked as you would expect from the owner of the Trio restaurant, cakes, melon and tea at 4pm were also very welcome.

There is no loud pumping music just a serene relaxed atmosphere. Mehmet does not chase all of the other boats so you can take your time at the swim sites and beaches and not get over powered by the crowding the other boats create by arriving at the same time.

So good we are going back again next week, Mehmet is an incredible person and we will use his new gulet when it is ready next season for a 1 or 2 day cruise.

We have booked Yildiz for next week based on the reviews both on here and the enjoy kalkan forum.
