Volkan went out of his way to accommodate my friends and I when the season hadn’t even started! He is a delight to work with and is very hospitable. We did the Beyond the 12 Islands tour and it was everything we could want and more. Beautiful scenery, relaxing/tanning on the boat, good food, and plenty of swim stops. I could not recommend taking a tour with Volkan’s Adventures more!

Beyond the 12 Islands
Another fantastic day with Volkan and his team.Picked up at our apartment at 9.30pm for the 40 minute drive to the Marina at Gocek ( a very,very upmarket area) where we went on board the boat, there were plenty of sunbeds and shaded areas for the group of 12.
This was a great lazy day, with one stop at the most incredible bay, here there were hot springs bubbling up from the sea bed. There were other swimming stops, interspaced with lounging in the sun sipping either water, fruit juice or something a bit stronger!
Volkan explained all about the islands we were passing, making it an informative day as well as a relaxing one.
Lunch was prepared by “mama”, who provided a superb spread of chicken, meatballs and a great variety of Turkish Mezes.
On the trip back in to Gocek the engine was cut and the sail hoisted, the most peaceful time on the water you can imagine.
After a full day of swimming, sunbathing and good food I nearly fell asleep on the drive back to Dalyan.

Bir tatil ancak bu kadar güzel yaşanabilirdi. O güzelim doğayı, diğer turların uğramadığı yerlerde yaşatan Volkan Bey ve ekibine çok teşekkürler. Kocaman teknede, çok az insanla, koyların keyfini sürmenin verdiği özel hissi ancak bu tura katılarak anlayabilirsiniz. En güzel Restaurantlara taş çıkartacak zenginlikte menün keyfini de sonuna kadar yaşattık. Teşekkürler Volkan Bey.

The Beyond the 12 Islands tour was excellent and we very much enjoyed it. The boat was quite luxurious and all the crew and staff were very accommodating. The food was excellent and very well presented. There were several swim stops which everyone seemed to enjoy and we would thoroughly recommend this tour. Volkan’s Murat provided some great pictures and videos at the end of a trip which was also a bonus. Thank you for a great day.

My daughter and I enjoyed the 12 islands trip not once but twice last week ! The luxurious layout of the boat , delicious food, relaxing ambience created with good background music and new friends, made this a wonderful way to chill out . The swim stops were very welcome and so were the boat ladies with their gorgeous wares for sale . Can’t wait to do it all again in a couple of weeks ! How’s that for a recommendation? Olivia

We thoroughly enjoyed our last trip so we booked on to the Beyond The 12 Island trip and we had such a good time. Would really recommend to anyone especially families.

we did our second private boat trip with Volkan and his team from Gocek on the 8th August 2020.
We sailed on Blue Melody in a party of 14.
Volkan and the crew were excellent hosts providing a fantastic day out for everyone.
Lunch was prepared on the boat – chicken, meatball kofta, salad, fesh fish, pasta and a great mezze selection.
Plenty of soft drinks, beers and wine.
If you want a guaranteed excellent boat trip, Volkan (volkansadventures.com) is who to book with.
Thank you Volkan and your team.

Have done numerous trips with Volkans Adventures and enjoyed every one.Nothing is to much trouble for this team.If they can do it for you (including the impossible)they will try their best for you.Boat trips are a dream.No loud jam packed disco boats, nice calm and relaxing usually about 12 to 15 max people.No fighting for best sun spots or people stepping over you.Food is fab and plenty of it, nobody goes hungry. Information, these guys have it all.They know their stuff(No Googling for them).Music not loud even bring your own and they will play it for you if you want.With this team you meet as a guest and leave as a friend.Might be a little bit more than other operators, but if you want crammed boats, loud disco music, people stepping over you and crap food, fine use them.Me i want value for my money, that’s i would never use anybody other than Volkans Adventures.

This trip is amazing, going out to sea is a must, the sea felt really warm, the staff and crew were very attentive, tea and coffee on arrival, the drinks were not over priced and also not the small bottles of beer that you sometimes get, the BBQ food was excellent and we’ll presented, the day was extremely relaxing, plenty of room to sunbathe as the trip was not over crowded, there was plenty of opportunities to swim throughout the day.

Every year we choose a trip to go on with Volkans and we have totally loved every one. This year we chose the 12 islands. We were picked up on time from our hotel and taken to Gocek to the sailing boat to begin our trip. We were served tea/coffee and biscuits/cake then off we went. Beautiful trip. Stopped off at gorgeous little coves for swimming opportunities. Lunch was buffet style and was delicious and we had further tea/coffee and snacks after lunch and all this included in the price. Alcoholic/soft drinks were available to buy at the bar. As always on these boat trips we made new friends and they are always one of the best days of our annual holiday. Volkan works very hard to make his customers happy and we look forward to seeing them again next year.

Volkan Adventure provided us an exceptionally professional and comfortable day trip around the 12 islands. Our pick up in the morning was prompt and we were greeted with homemade cookies on the minibus. The boat was spacious as we were a group of 14 (and the boat can accommodate many more) so everyone was able to spread out comfortably choosing a spot of their liking in the sun or shade. Coffee, tea and snacks awaited us upon our arrival on the boat. We were also provided beach towels. We enjoyed lounging on the boat and chatting with the other guests in between swimming stops. The guide was friendly and conversational with everyone. Lunch was a beautiful spread of freshly cooked dishes. Later fruit was served as an afternoon snack. It was a lovely day of leisure and beautiful blue waters. We would take this trip again!
