We received the information about the pick-up via WhatsApp the day before. On the day of the excursion we were picked up by the Baba boat bus. The driver was friendly and spoke fluent German. The boat tour was nice, fun and good music was playing. There was a lot to watch and a few swimming breaks. Snorkeling and swimming noodles could be borrowed for a deposit. The guides spoke German, English, Russian and Turkish. We could spot turtles. Unfortunately we didn't see any dolphins, but a sea robe! Lunch was delicious. The foam party was pretty cool too. Children's entertainment is also provided. We can recommend the boat tour and had fun.

It was absolutely great. A great day out for the whole family for the price. Good mood. Prices on the boat reasonable. Gözleme 2€, Cola, Fanta etc. 1.50€, beer 3€. Lunch tasted good. Choice between chicken and fish. Children under 5 can eat for 3€. Pick-up directly at the hotel with an air-conditioned bus. The foam party was a highlight especially for the kids. English, German and Turkish are spoken on the boat. Everything well organized.

Everything went great. The bus was on time and the Baba Boot team very friendly. We made 4 bathing stops, partly on the open sea but also in a beautiful lagoon. Snorkels can be rented on board. Unfortunately we didn't see dolphins but turtles. The food was super delicious and there was also a nice entertainment for the children. We would book it again at any time.

A great tour. Everything as described. Very relaxed atmosphere. Everyone was nice and spoke German well. Very suitable for families, but also for everyone else.

Smooth transfer! Great time on the ship! great swimming stops, delicious food, perfect entertainment!
