“Fantastic Day”
Review of Finding Nemo Boat

Finding Nemo Boat
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Amazing day out caught lots of fish. there was 4 of us and plenty of room all the staff were so lovely and it was so nice to do what u want and just to have the boat to your group and no one else. Had a lovely swim in the sea and after had a brilliant lunch and fruit plate. We are all adults but the dogs just made it more special very sweet husky's that loved a cuddle. A lovely experience definitely do it again value for money. :)

Booked up by Emailing Linda. Met up in Icmeler by the Captain Nemo boat, Ibo, Linda, Mocha, Cofi for our boat trip. Ibo asked what we wanted to so we asked for half day fishing sightseeing and relaxing which was no problem. Linda helps the inexperienced people out with fishing, and it wasn't long before we were all catching fish. Even the members of our group who have never deep sea fished before. Ibo does the most fantastic food for lunch on the boat which is plentiful. You definitely won't leave feeling hungry. The 2 dogs on board Cofi and Mocha are very excitable when meeting new people but soon calm down and are very affectionate. We really enjoyed ourselves and our hosts couldn't have been any more accommodating - Thank you Linda and Ibo. :-)

Just returned from Icmeler. Yet again we had 2 trips with Linda, Ibo, Mocha and Cofi. As always we feel like we are visiting family when we see them. Great fishing and always great food. This time i offered to help but Ibo knows i'm a can't cook person so laughed and told me to relax instead. Obviously we are going back again next year as my partner will be 60, so can't wait to see what surprises we will get.

At 09:45, as we walked up the jetty at Icmeler, to board the Finding Nemo Boat, we were warmly greeted by “Mrs Nemo” (Linda) who invited us on board and immediately told us that the boat was ours for the day and she and Captain Nemo (Ibo) were happy to do whatever we wanted!

We had booked the trip on the internet before we flew out to Turkey, after seeing it reviewed on Tripadvisor. The food aspect of the trip appealed to me and my wife (Ibo is a hotel trained chef) and the fishing, snorkeling, sunbathing and huskies appealed to my children.

Over the course of a couple of weeks prior to leaving the UK, I sorted out all of our requirements and a 50% deposit, through a series of back-and-forth emails with Linda, all very easy and very helpful. I told her that we wanted 4 fishing licences, what we wanted to eat and drink throughout the trip and that we were happy for the huskies (Mocha and Cofi) to come along on the trip (optional).

On the trip itself, the catching of fish is guaranteed, as the boat has the latest fish sonar installed and Linda is the reigning Marmaris Fishing Champion. The kids got the knack straight away and caught a bucket load of fish. You fish in an area of sea over 50 metres deep, where the water is crystal clear and an amazing turquoise colour, and it’s ok to jump in to have a swim whenever you feel the urge. There is a fresh water shower on board, to wash the salt water off afterwards.

The quality of the food is stunning, given that it is simple and freshly produced on a little 2 ring gas burner just below deck. It’s colourful, tasty and beautifully presented, and how Ibo does it I still don’t know, even after closely watching him!? If you have nothing else, you must have the garlic shrimps!!

As we tucked into lunch we watched the continuous procession of boat tours queuing up to get a view of a nearby sea cave and we commented to each other how glad we were to have booked the Finding Nemo Boat instead, and once we had finished lunch and the boat trips had gone, we made our way over to the cave at our own leisure and without the crowds. Everything that you do on this trip is your choice, at your pace and without the crowds!

We received everything we asked for on the trip and more, as an unexpected detour and walk around the pretty little resort of Turunc was required, in search of a pharmacy, as our son had picked up a painful ear infection.

We arrived back in Icmeler at 17:45, after a thoroughly enjoyable day, for which I can’t thank Ibo and Linda enough. We don’t normally go to the same holiday destination twice but if we do go back to Icmeler, we’ll certainly book this trip again.

Tip - You can’t take your own drinks on the trip (due to Turkish rules and regulations I believe) but we requested beer, wine, soft drinks and water in advance and they were duly provided at reasonable prices.

We booked this in England, left a deposit and then just turned up at the marina in the morning.
The kids fished for their first time, and Captain Nemo was really helpful, they all caught something so were happy. We anchored the boat up in a bay and while Nemo cooked we all enjoyed jumping off the boat and swimming the sea. He provided floats which was nice as even as a swimmer it was nice to just relax floating on the water, he also lent us a mask for snorkelling and this was a feel highlight for everyone as none of us had ever done it.
We found Captain Nemo to be extremely nice, he's a very layed back character, we read the previous reviews about him and I can only think the people were rude to him as we got on really well with him. The food that was served was amazing, the table was full of different tasty dishes, we couldn't eat everything so you will be served plenty. We asked for a fruit plater and you won't be disappointed the fruit was beautiful. We were amazed he was able to cook food better than the hotel we stayed in, in a tiny kitchen area, in the middle of the sea.
If your looking for a personal trip out, relaxing on the sea then this is perfect. Thanks again
