Review of Finding Nemo Boat

Finding Nemo Boat
Reviewed 4 June 2013

We agreed to share a full-day (7 hr) charter for much less than a private charter and lucky for us, we had the boat to ourselves on the actual day. All was included as promised, fishing, cruising, swimming and lunch. Latter was really memorable for being varied (& ample) and delicious. Linda was especially helpful, warm and friendly, and Ebo was a really good cook as well as captain. You could sense the love he had for the boat, as I think it had been his first_ a bit old and a little worn like us, truth be told, but, reliable, well-laid out/equipped and obviously, made for memories. The enjoyment Ebo got from spending time on it was obvious. The little cove we had lunch in was beautiful and calm, surrounded by fantastic layered rock. The weather was good and the surrounding mountains made for great vistas The trip was made even more enjoyable by the presence of their 2 huskies, who were very sweet, gentle and affectionate. One, Coffee was involved in an adventure which involved goats and it added some excitement. I only wish the water was less cold. Highly recommend this activity/Finding Nemo

We have been to Marmaris several times but it was only in May 2012 we went on the finding nemo boat trip, it was our sons 11 birthday and as he loves fishing we thought we would try it because of all the excellent recomendations on trip advisor.The whole experience was amazing we booked before we arrived in marmaris and it was easy to book just an email to Linda and Ibo, the food was excellent and the whole trip was so relaxing our younger children caught fish and our son had a lovely birthday cake cant wait to go again this year.

We decided to try something different this year as we had been on the big commercial boat trips and found them very noisy and crowded, not relaxing at all. I was slightly dubious at first as we had to book before we travelled and had to pay quite a big deposit, but after reading other people's reviews we decided to take the risk. The boats captain, Ebo, told us to meet him on the jetty in Icmeler at 9.30 in the morning and he was there promptly. The day was ours to do with as we pleased so we decided on fishing, swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing. Lunch is included in the price and I've got to say it was the best meal we had all holiday, how he manages to cook such a fantastic meal in such a small space is unbelievable. Linda was a great host, telling us things about the area and giving advice on the best fishing techniques. I would definitely recommend this trip rather than go on the bigger commercial ones, it was a very relaxing day and great fun.

We decided to book this trip before leaving home for our holiday. I was going on holiday with my 3 sons who love fishing but never fished outside of England. We all had a great time and the boys are still talking about it now. The food that Ibo cooked was the best that we tasted in the whole of our 2 weeks holiday and we certainly were not left hungry. Linda was great with the boys which allowed me to relax and enjoy my day and have fun watching the boys catch fish they had never seen before. They also loved stopping in the bays, swimming and snorkeling. It was a great day with a variety of things to do so nobody got board. We have already said that when we do go back to Turkey one of the first trips we will book is this one. We would fully recommend it

We had read about this boat before travelling to Turkey and as a result, went out of our way to find and book the trip. We are SO pleased that we made the effort to do this!! Ebo and Linda no longer take bookings from Agents so therefore we would advise to book before you travel. We found them in Marmaris Marina and booked the boat for a whole day fishing for just the two of us. Whilst possibly not the cheapest trip you will do it will be by far the best value for money. We were picked up at Icemeler canal at 10am for a 7 hour trip. What we did on the day was entirely up to us, fishing, swimming or (in my case) looking for dolphins!!!! (not as rare as you would think, they had been spotted from the boat a couple of days beforehand!). When we booked, we were asked a couple of questions, firstly, did we have any objection to dogs and secondly was there anything we did not like to eat. The first question was because if you did like dogs, Mocca and Coffee, 2 huskies, would come along to the trip. They were absolutely adorable and made our day even more special. The second question was because Ebo, who is a superb chef, made lunch according to your tastes. We honestly can say that this was one of the best meals we had whilst on holiday (only advice is don't have breakfast before you go!!!!!) We thought we were not going to have any luck with the fishing but were fortunate enough to catch a tuna just as we were preparing to leave! Ebo prepared the fish for us, even gave us a bag of flour so that we could cook it ourselves back at our apartment. What a fantastic meal that also turned out to be!! We were so impressed by our day that we booked another day for our second week which turned out to be equally enjoyable.
