Small Islands and Bays Tour
This is our most popular day tour. On this trip Ali will take you to the secluded bays and small islands around the coast near Kaş where the water is very clear and ideal for swimming, snorkelling or just relaxing. Keep your eyes open though for dolphins, turtles and some of the other wildlife that inhabit this area of the turquoise coast.
Here is a link to a video of the Small Islands and Bays tour:
Kalkan, Kaputaş Beach and the Blue Cave
Kaputaş, with is crystal clear turquoise water is one of the most photographed beaches in Turkey. This tour gives you the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing swim or, if you feel more energetic, a climb up the 187 steps to the road above the beach to get your own photo like this.
Further stops for lunch and for swimming, including at the Blue Cave are made during the tour and a visit to Kalkan is also possible.
On the way back to Kaş there is time for a last swim in another small bay off the peninsula and perhaps a glass or two of çay before returning to harbour.

Sunset / Moonlight Tours
Evening tours to enjoy some of the glorious sunsets over the Kaş coastline are also available on the basis of a private hire. Tours will normally follow a route around the bay near Kas and allow time for swimming and snorkelling.
Tours usually last for around 2.5 to 3 hours, returning to harbour shortly after sunset. Later evening moonlight tours can also be arranged on request.
Captain Ali will be happy to prepare a delcious evening meal on board for you should you wish, perfect for that special occasion.
Here is a short video of a sunset tour, filmed in April immediately following the winter re-fit of the Batin 2:
Simena and the sunken city of Kekova
This day tour takes you to the sunken city of Kekova where you can see the remains of the Lycian city that was destroyed by an earthquake and the small village of Simena and its ancient castle built by the Knights of Rhodes
The trip along the coast allows plenty of time for sunbathing and Ali will find some secluded coves on both the outward and return journeys where you will be able to have time for swimming and relaxing.
The Batin 2 is also available for private hire for relaxing overnight tours for one or more nights (2 days/ 1 night, 3 days/ 2 nights etc.). The Batin 2 has three double en-suite cabins and will accommodate 6 people.
Overnight tours start at 10.00 am on the first day and finish at around 6pm on the last day. Tours generally start and finish at Kaş harbour.
Tours are designed around the customer, the route and locations of overnight stops will vary according to your preference. Generally, tours will travel on routes between Kalkan and the Kekova / Demre area. On shore visits to places of interest can be arranged.
All meals are included with the exception of breakfast on the first day and evening meal on the last day.
After spending many years as a fisherman Ali has exceptional knowledge of the best local fishing spots.
Some people (well really only Ali himself) say that he is a great fisherman, others say he is just very lucky!
Full and part day fishing tours can be arranged.
