4 crew and 14 passengers for 4 days on the Arcona. The crew and food were just brilliant. Our boys are 10 years old and were the only kids on board but we all had a great time. Only downsides were a 4am start one morning and the wasps attracted by damp towels waking us up as we all slept on deck - far too hot to sleep in the cabins which were ok but nothing special. Also the waste tank was a bit smelly after 3 nights but this was a great trip and a real experience for us and the boys with crystal clear waters, millions of fish, swimming with turtles, good prices on the drinks and great food. How they knocked that much grub up in such a tiny place is beyond me. Highly recommended but a lack of coffee when you're awake at some ungodly hour in the morning could be addressed. Maybe take your own flask.
We were a little reluctant to do this because of some of the mixed reviews (for the Blue Cruise in general, not Ala Turka in particular) but decided to go for it. So glad we did. It was early in the season and we were one of the only boats around so it was quite peaceful and allowed us to enjoy the spectacular scenery without a lot of distractions. The water was crisp but refreshing. The boat was large, comfortable, and had everything we needed, including a great group. Food was plentiful and excellent. We really enjoyed sleeping on the deck under the stars and waking up as the boat gently motored on to the next stop while the sun came up. The only real downside was that they only had canned beers and they were a little pricey. All in all, one of the best experiences in Turkey. We'll worth it.
We went as a family of 7 with adolescent children on the 7 day cruise from Fethiye to Olympos. I read the reviews here prior to booking. Booking on the sight was easy. I ha some questions and my mails were personally answered by return.
Check in was easy and organised. Perfect boat excellent crew, wonderful food.
I could continue but the best recommendation Or compliment I can make is that as a family we made the unanimous decision to return next year. Congrats Farout on your professionalism.,
Went with them on the sunset cruise which costs £5 each, worth every penny, left the beach at 18:30 sailed across the bay, then stopped by a beautiful island where you could swim or just take in the scenery and take pictures of the sun setting, the actual sunset was amazing to see, this was filled by a short journey to a cove where we were given a lovely meal of fresh fish and amazing salad, then went onto the beach and danced to Tirkish music a really great value night. We arrived back at 23:30.
