We have 3 cabins with their own en suite bathrooms. Each journey begins with a cool towel service and discussion with Captain Ergun on details of the boat and numerous trip options.

We also offer an afternoon tea and coffee service for those guests interested in partaking.

No matter which trip you choose, you will always enjoy delicious food and drinks and a memorable day of sailing, snorkelling and swimming in the dazzling Mediterranean Sea.

Villa Rental, Holiday in a Hotel…none comes close to the experience of travel by BOAT! Let’s explore why: Firstly, you can comfortably move around, lie down, or sit at a table whilst your vessel glides along the sea. You are surrounded by ever changing natural beauty. You can fall asleep while travelling, or at night while anchored in a pristine bay, amidst the sound of waves lapping against the boat’s sides.

Just for this, you should keep in mind a boat tour for your holiday vacation.

We believe that everyone who chooses Kas as their destination should not miss out on this crewed yacht charter to complete their Kas experience. The perspective of Ancient Lycia from the sea is unbeatable.

If you prefer to avoid people you don’t know as you relax in your swimming costumes; if you prefer to be alone with your loved ones and friends on an affordable boat journey, our tours are designed just for you!

About the Owner

We are a family owned business. We don't use expensive marketing strategies, make exaggerated claims, or offer an impersonal service. In fact, we pride ourselves on giving our customers a unique, customized yacht charter experience that is unparalleled in the market place; when it comes to crewed boat rental in Turkey, we believe that we've got the edge.

Both my wife and I are avid fans of travelling and are always excited to meet new people; first and foremost, we love making new friends and we are both adventurous souls.

My love affair with the ocean began almost a decade ago, during my studies, when I was entrusted to run the family boat during the summers between University years, largely offering private boat tours in Kas.

Upon graduating, with an economics degree, I was faced with the not so straightforward task of deciding what to do with my life. While my friends were all attracted to high paying office jobs, my summers spent running boat trips in Kas had had a deep and telling impact on my internal dialogue.

Rather than taking the traditional path into employment, I decided to follow my heart and continue to run the family boat, full time. It was a decision that I didn't take lightly, but it's certainly one that I feel thankful that I made, each and every day.

My wife, who also owns a Seaman's license, shares my passion for adventure and is a valuable member of our team. Like most Turkish women, she's an exceptional cook, who is able to create the most sumptuous of dishes, from the most basic of produce. I don't know how the business would run without her; our boat trips in Kas just wouldn't be the same.

My wife and I run boat trips in Kas during the summer months, spending the winters travelling the world. It's been a long, hard road, building our business together, but we believe that our passion is what has got us this far. And we don't intend on stopping anytime soon.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were a group of 7 friends from New Zealand who happened across a review introducing us to Captain Ergun and his chef extraordinaire wife Merve. We spent 4 nights on their fabulous gulet Evita as we cruised the Turquoise Coast. From beginning to end - we were awed, we laughed, we sang, we swum, snorkled, kyacked, sea scootered, videoed each other on the gulet GoPro underwater camera, paddle boarded, ate banquets for breakfast lunch and dinner. We all agreed this was the 'time of our lives!'. We snorkled and explored sunken villages and ruins (those that we were permitted - some are protected - rightly so) , we wandered the shores and were amongst ancient ruins of many civilizations including walking a portion of the Lycian Way. We visited working fishing villages and spent time chatting to the locals, purchasing their wares and handcrafts. The sights and experiences were extraordiary.

Captain Ergun said "Trust me - I can create a cruise itinerary incorporating all the things you want to explore and visit, sights you want to see'. And he did. From quiet milk pond smooth bays where we anchored for the night - to spectacular coastline where we snorkled and dived, swum amongst the ruins of ancient civilizations. Their amphora and pots, stairways, walls and pottery are everywhere and we felt privileged to be able to be right there - amongst it all. Not touching - just intoxicated by the opportunity to be part of this magical coast for four days.

We dived to view a sunken plane, and watched as Captain Ergun free dived into a deep hollow - until he was out of sight. I hope to upload the video.

Evita is a beautiful boat - with three double cabins - each with ensuite. Woodgrain and quality fittings throughout. However most people prefer to sleep on deck on very comfortable mattresses made for the purpose. We went to sleep each evening - looking up to the stars and watching the day dawn each morning. Arising to a wonderful breakfast prepared by Merve - Captain Ergun's wife. Lunch and dinner are banquets of traditional and superb Turkish cuisine.

I extensively researched the many gulets on offer. There were many reasons we chose Ctpn Ergun's gulet: The wonderful reviews (#1 on Trip Advisor of all things to do in Kas). We wanted to charter a cruise for only our group. The price was excellent. Captn Ergun not only worked with me to create a brilliant itinerary, but the additional opportunities he offers with his boat make this what we all believe to be the be

Perfection - You have arrived at the right place!

  • 5 of 5

So much has been said about Captain Ergun and his boat trips, that I almost feel redundant making some of these comments. However, when you experience a truly excellent vacation, it’s important to record the experience so others do not need to stress over their boat and captain decision.

For people that don’t have the time to get through this whole review, I’ll post a spoiler now: Stop looking, you’ve found a winner, you won’t do better, it’s time to book with Captain Ergun!

Background: I am a very seasoned traveler. A Captain for one of the highest rated airlines in the world (think Asia) and I truly enjoy the finer things. That said, I appreciate value and a budget. But, my bottom line is SERVICE.

I spent an inordinate amount of time researching boat trips in Turkey. I stumbled across the idea a few years ago while touring the Turkish coast. When I saw the gullets lined up in port, it became a “bucket list” item. This holiday was designed around a multi-night boat trip through the warm and clear waters of southern Turkey. I knew I was looking for a private boat with captain and cook. What I didn’t realize was that I would stumble upon such an absolute gem. There are literally countless companies offering such trips, and each has similar itineraries and pricing. The controlling side of my brain didn’t want to leave the selection of the actual boat and crew to a large company. I wanted to know that I would spend my vacation time with someone whose priority was to make dreams come true. This is where Ergun comes in.

Captain Ergun, is the driving force of change for Turkish boat trips. If you see an amenity advertised in a competitor’s listing, it’s something that Ergun dreamed up first. Ergun over-delivers to the point that it’s comical. Whether it’s to seek out the calmest water or search for an afternoon breeze, to indulge your whim for local fresh bread or a night of dancing. He seems to never run out of energy or motivation. The brilliance of Captain Ergun is that every charter he runs is individualized for his guests. He has an uncanny ability to read you, what you want, and even what you have yet to think of.

I spent my four-nights on the motor sailer EVITA. She is a fully equipped boat with three cabins, all significantly larger then I had expected. The cabins all have an en suite bathroom with shower facility, air conditioning when necessary, and Wi-Fi Internet. Water skiing, tubing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayakin

Fantastic boat trip by captain Ergun

  • 5 of 5

It was one of our life time experience at the Captain Ergun's Gullet.

Captain's wife Merve freshly prepared foods, a specially barbecue fish was very delicious.

We had a lot of fun with under water go pro camera and sea scooter.

Saw a lot of colourful fishes with the masks and flippers supply on the boat.

I highly recommend to anyone who wants to visit Kas and make a daily or overnight boat tours.

Thank you captain. See you next year

Amazing experience!!

  • 5 of 5

It was my first experience in a boat for the whole weekend and everything was perfect. My friend told me about captain Ergun and we decided to espend the weekend and everything was perfect. The boat is clean and new, they have all equipments such as snorkling, pedal board and kayak. I was impressed about Merve's food that was absolutely perfect. Thanks again Captain Ergun and Merve for this amazing and unforgettable experience. I hope I can enjoy your boat again next year. Simone Rossi- Brazil

The perfection in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This July we spent 10 day in Turkey, it have been our best on boat vacation ever! We rented the boat with Capitan Ergun and his Wife Merve for one week. We were seven people: my family of four, the girlfriend of my son ( both 18) and our friend and her daughter ( 18 as well). Ergun an Merve made our vacation a kind of dream. The boat it's in pristine condition not a spot to remark, a lot of very comfy space, a lot of shadow, 4 nice cabin with nice, clean and perfectly working restroom each. A lot of gadget to play with: paddle board, underwater scooter, sea kayak, snorkelling gear in pristine condition. But it's not enough. Ergun, Merve and Ali take any effort to make you feel pampered like a royal without any affectation, discreet but always present and able to prevent your desire. Everybody work very,very hard but always smiling. Eregun take great care of security and it's always very calm. He moves the boat to three or four different wonderful spot everyday, every time securing the boat in three point. And if the water become less than pristine, even if he have finished in that moment to secure the boat, he will move to a better spot. Merve work in the kitchen since sunrise to prepare incredibly fresh and delicious meal, always different and so good you don't even think to go to restaurant, simply amazing but not only : also very healthy. Tons of fruit and veggie perfectly mastered.And when she is not cooking she can drive the boat as a captain too! We had Breakfast, lunch, several snack and dinner each day and they are able to perfectly accomplish the special dietary needs of one of our friends. Perfect timing for the swimming: every time you get on board there is something waiting for you. We had a very nice selection of Turkish wines white and red, incredibly good, carefully chosen by Ergun. The atmosphere on a boat it's paramount and the culture and gentleness of Ergun and Merve and Ali make the difference. My and my wife slept three night in the family villa of Eregun, overlooking Kas with a beautiful garden; they run the business with family members and friends and they were able to organise a perfect pick up at the airport. So, Turkey it's pristine, the people is more than friendly, the coast from Kas to Castelorizo has so many small enchanted bay full of history, ruins, tradition and culture that, added to the marvellous hospitality of Ergun, Marve and Ali, made this trip and vacation one of our happiest and most memorable...Thanks Ergun,thanks

Fourth year in a row

  • 5 of 5

We again joined Captain Ergun yesterday on a day trip on his beautiful new boat. This was the first trip we had done with him on his new boat. The boat is more comfortable and spacious which leaves one with a more enjoyable experience. The diving, swimming, and snorkelling were fantastic with Ergun taking us to new spots. The lunch prepared by his beautiful wife was superb. The entire day was a relaxed wonderful holiday experience. Thanks again to you both.

Just One Word:'AMAZING'

  • 5 of 5

After some research from the UK last year I found Captain Ergun through TripAdvisor and saw that he had some great reviews and therefore booked up his lovely new boat with him and his wife Merve looking after us on board for up to three days at the end of July this year. We are two families, and totally nine people and they accommodated us on a lovely new boat which was very comfortable and we had some great chill out time on board eating their delicious food which included some superb fresh sea bass with some lovely turkish salads. The food was fantastic, their hospitality was fantastic and our teenage children (including my over 50 year old husband) had a great time enjoying all the watersports. It was lovely having Merve and Ergun on board who could speak such great English and could answer some historical questions coming from some of our more inquisitive teenagers, I do not really want to be telling anyone about how wonderful they both are as I want to be able to book up their lovely boat next year!! Cant wait to join them both again next year. :)
