First, I'd like to say that the island itself and the church are probably much better than the 1-star I gave, but the reason I gave it is that actually getting to the docks near Gevas on time and waiting for the boat does not mean you'll actually be able to go there - it depends on other people coming and filling a boat, or you paying much more (150 TL for a private boat instead of 10 TL for a ticket).
Personally, I arrived 2.5 hours before the official closing time, and after waiting for two hours as the only person on the docks, the ship captains there refused to take me to the island unless I pay the full private price of 150 TL. Moreover, their manager lied to me about a couple of issues (such as the actual closing time of the island, or then claimed that the island was empty when a ship full of people came back some time later), and it was clear that they were simply trying to be greedy and make as much money as possible. This was my worst experience in my whole trip in Turkey by far and I was very disappointed by the way I was treated.
The island and church are probably worth it, but do yourself a favor and try to get to this attraction earlier in the day rather than later to prevent similar experiences.
