We had a wonderful day with Captain Ali and his son. There were just 5 of us on the boat and Ali ensured that we had a fantastic time. He took us to where we wished to go and nothing was too much trouble. His son supplied a wonderful BBQ lunch with salads and breads - Hot springs, snorkelling on... More

It doesn't get much better than sailing down to the beach or up to the lake gazing at the beautiful Dalyan scenery and listening to some great music. Ali and his lovely son will give you a fantastic day and join in the fun swimming and crab fishing etc. They will also prepare a delicious BBQ and salad lunch with... More

Took a trip with captain Ali and his son yesterday who created an amazing day. Good food, relaxing atmosphere and great company. Ali was flexible throughout the day which contributed to the feel good factor and used local knowledge to stop at the best spots for crabbing, food and swimming.

We went on a full day boat tour which included trip out to sea where we could hop out and swim- beautiful clear water. Then went crabbing near Iztutu Beach, where it was easy to catch crabs, and we could get out on the beach too. Lunch was amazing- delicious salads, roast veg, bread, blue crabs, kofte, chicken- and more... More

We had a great day with Ali - our first time there, we can't compare. But we would go to Ali again, no need at all to change the captain/ cook/ entertainer!! Thank you, Ali!

If you are considering a river trip in Dalyan look no further than Captain Ali's boat the sultan of Dalyan. Very comfortable with brightly coloured huge cushions to lounge on, nothing is too much bother and were introduced to crabbing which we hugely enjoyed. Swimming off the boat in warm volcanic waters was a great experience. Could not rate captain... More
