The 14th voyage of the Argonauts was the best ever. Discovering the secrets of the Turkish coast is a breath taking experience - returning to our favourite hearts is even better. We will cherish happy memories of the voyage and of our wonderful crew : Gunay, Levent and Mahmut.

WOWOWOW. What a fantastic trip. It is all fading into my memory now, but I can tell you that it was one of the best vacations of my life. That is saying a lot my friend!  It was so relaxing, I am recommending it to all my friends! You know that I love Turkey. Seeing more of the remote bays and waters around Bodrum was very special. The friends and family we had on board were all thoroughly delighted with absolutely everything. From the moment we landed, till the time we went back to Genoa, the trip was perfect. It could only have been more perfect if we had stayed longer. Thank you for everything.

Ms. Laura Veglia

Mr. Alexander Best

Thank you for everything! And for the fishing.
Miss Victoria Best


We had the most brilliant time. The boat and crew were terrific- we were so well looked after. All transfers worked like clockwork and your colleagues phoned us three or so times to ensure we were happy with everything and knew what was going on. The Turkish coast was beautiful and the Captain found superb bays and spots to stop for swimming, snorkelling and sleeping.

We will absolutely recommend this type of holiday and I'm sure will be back again ourselves! 

Best wishes

Ms. Emma Hopkin

Dear Kamil Aga friends, Thank you very much for such a wonderful holiday. We have enjoyed the trip a lot. All the places we have visited have been amazing. Once again, Turkey has been a big surprise, the colors, the weather, the food and YOU, OUR FRIENDS!! Back to our routine, we will remember and miss those days with you sailing in Kamil Aga. Sinan, you have taken us to perfect spots and Cris will always thank you for very last unexpected bath. We haven't miss any single thing in your boat. We have seen lots of ships but none was as beautiful as KAMIL AGA. We were amazed when you told us you built it. You three have been best possible crew. Again thank you so much.

Our four days aboard the beautiful gullet "Enderim" has been a delight from coming aboard until our sad disembarkation. The crew could not do enough to satisfy, anticipating our needs and doing everything with a smile and a good heart. The food served up by Umut was sensation all good-enjoyed with gusto by us all. All the ladies on board want to take him back with us to London. We return with happy memories of our ideal time on "Enderim" and hope to repeat a Blue Tour.
