Rum Kale from Kasaba by car

I am renting a car and driving from Karadut to Gaziantep. On the way I do want to stop at Kasaba and get a boat to go around Rum Kale and just north up the river to see the Miniaret sticking from the water in Savasan.

I will not go through Sanliurfa or Halfeti - Unfortunately, I just don't have the time.

Questions I have

1. Are there boats readily available at the pier in Kabasa?

2. How much does a boat rental cost?

3. Is it safe to leave the car parked at Kabasa for the time we will be on a boat?

1. If Kasaba is the place which is after Rumkale and past the minaret poking out the water then yes there are boats available there for rental for the exact purpose you are asking for.

2. The boat rental in the direction of Old Halfeti to Kasaba cost 100 lira (pretty sure but would have to refer to my noted to be 100%). I dare say it would be the same cost the otherway as well. If possible get a larger boat and ensure to negotiate the price prior to jumping on board.

3. As a paying customer tell the boat captain of your dilemma and he will assist you accordingly.

Alternatively pay a local kid a few liras and he will guard your car with his life.

I've been on a boat like the one on the bottom left pic of 1st link above and also a smaller boat. I'd definitely recommend the larger one. The larger boat I went on looks exact like the one in the pic and may very well be that one.
