My name is Barbaros and I’m a pioneer guide for nature & adventure tours in southern Turkey since '94. Kas I call my home and here I'm guiding high quality and exciting outdoor sport activities like Sea Kayaking in Kekova, Trekking on the Lycian Way, Mountain-biking and Canyoning for private Travellers and groups. I believe in seeing the world in the most unique way possible, and want to share my knowledge and passion for sports, nature and history with all of those whom I guide.

Where you'll be

Start is usually in Ucagiz Village. The inner bay offers perfect conditions to get used to your kayak.
Tersane bay ruins of ancient Xera. Here you can swim among ancient ruins.
The Sunken city is practically under us. Much closer then the boat tours.
Simena offers the castle with great views and a Necropolis with fine examples of Lycian sarcophagi.
There will be a swim break on a deserted island if the weather and timing allows.

Nous avons eu une super expérience avec Barbaros. Pour ma part, je n’avais jamais fais de Kayak et mon compagnon qu’une seule fois. Barbaros s’est montré très vigilant et attentionné à notre égard. Il nous a partagé ses connaissances historiques et plusieurs anecdotes sur le pays et la région que nous avons particulièrement appréciées. Le déjeuner fut excellent, les plages sur lesquelles nous nous sommes arrêtés magnifiques, et une super ambiance de groupe. N’hésitez pas, allez y !

We can't recommend this trip highly enough. Barbaros is a true professional with a passion for kayaking, the outdoors, nature and Turkey. It was a privilege to spend time with him in a small group. This is so much more than a kayaking trip, definitely our favourite experience in the beautiful, historic Kas

We had an exciting time sea kayaking with Barbaros! This day trip is something that could not be done without the connections and expertise that Barbaros shared. For sure our day spent sea kayaking was full of laughs along with the expected physical challenges. Our small group was friendly and became fast friends. This experience was well worth it and we would definitely do this again on our next visit to the area.
