Captain Mehmet and his mate were absolutely brilliant! Food and hospitality was amazing... huge boat for 7 of us and very relaxing/ comfortable. Had the most fantastic day swimming in bays and sunbathing/ chatting on the boat. We were 2 families with 3 teenage boys who had one of the best days ever. Mehmet is very friendly, polite and accommodating. We would definitely book again on our next trip to Kalkan and would recommend this trip to everyone with Mehmet.
Thankyou for a beautiful day ❤️

We visited Kalkan for our first time in July for a couple of weeks and wanted to ensure we had pre-arranged a couple of days out of the villa before we arrived. We found Lunar Gulet via a google search and Lunar’s Facebook page. We hadn’t even read their amazing Tripadvisor reviews! We made contact via email with Capt. Mehmet and he responded immediately and everything worked like clockwork from then on.

The Lunar is a beautiful traditional gulet (not like some of the double decker tourist boats) and it really is a private trip. The gulet is pretty large and was all ours (5 of us) plus Capt. Mehmet and his crew member.

We had 2 glorious days visiting bays, swimming in the turquoise sea, a mud bath on the beach and chilling on the boat. But that’s not all! The food that Capt Mehmet manages to prepare in the little galley was beyond belief. The food was freshly prepared and tasted amazing.

The last day and the last bay was capped off by a large turtle popping up to say hello!

We would highly recommend a trip on the Lunar Gulet. Book early though as friends of ours can’t get the day they want in August!

Superb day aboard Lunar. We took a private hire and had the most fantastic day. Mehmet and crew were amazing. Lovely cruise out, mud baths, outstanding lunch, many bays for swimming, comfortable beds for sunbathing, stunning tea within fruit and cake seemingly appearing from nowhere.

Snorkels and flippers on board and loads of shade if you are not a sun worshipper.

Lunar is a lovely boat with plenty of space and good facilities. Loads of drinks on board and well priced - no charging the captive audience here.

Captain and crew were delightful, friendly and informative about the area.

Lunar is berthed at the far side of the harbour near Indigo restaurant and the beach club, a little off the beaten track, but worth it. We booked via e mail through the website and it couldn't have been easier with really quick response. Brilliant

We had the most amazing day on Lunar with family to celebrate my daughter's birthday! Nothing is too much trouble for Mehmet and his crew, he asked us where we wanted to go and took us to Mouse Island and the mud beach, where we all looked fairly silly standing in the sun covered in mud drying off, then washing it off in the crystal clear blue and turquoise sea. We had such a laugh!
The food is incredible and so plentiful, how Mehmet manages to prepare such a wonderful meal in such a small galley is nothing short of miraculous!
Lunar is a beautiful boat, sumptuously and comfortably fitted out with a huge dining table, comfortable seating in the shade and about 12 sunbeds on the top deck. There's plenty of headroom below deck and there's a large room to change in with an en suite loo.
Mehmet makes the day huge fun and is very relaxed and super friendly.
We love that Lunar only takes private tours so you're not sharing the boat with strangers.
Highly recommended, thanks so much Mehmet!

This was our second trip, after 3 years absence, it was easy to book, and Captain Mehmet remembered us.
We didn't have great weather the first week, and Mehmet suggested we delayed our trip, because of a threat of storms, which did happen. Rebooked for Monday the following week, and had a beautiful day. We left it entirely to Mehmet as to where we went, he took us all around Kalkan bay, stopping at many points for swimming off the boat, and lunch. Lunch was absolutely beautiful again, lovely fresh sea bass, and lovely salad accompaniments. We were offered the mud bath, but declined, we had done it before.
The day is excellent value for money, it can be as relaxing or as boisterous as you want. While you are always at the will of the weather, Mehmet certainly guided us well. I would definitely return for another trip.
