We are a family business, run by full-time Altinkum residents Hakan & Laura Cetinkaya. We have been operating private yacht cruises together since 2006, and running the Flying Fish since January 2008.


Laura is a native of South-West London, while Hakan is originally from the Black Sea coast of Turkey, and is a qualified captain with nearly 30 years' professional experience on the sea. We have recently added two new crew members to the team, daughters Hulya and Selvi.

Hakan and Laura have successfully created a set of cruises that stand out from the crowd, with excellent food, welcoming service and classy surroundings. The couple's latest craft, the Flying Fish, offers comfort, luxury and a break from the hustle and bustle of resort life.

Here is a comment made on the Absolutely Altinkum forum:

"5 stars, 10 out of ten, big tick in the box for the Flying fish Team. We arrived at 10 am (4 of us ) to complementary coffee and were shown aboard by the lovely Laura and the team.The boat was immaculately clean and very comfortable with cushioned seating inside and out. We left on time for our 3 hour fishing trip, due to the choppy water the sensible captain kept us close to land and we also got a sea side view of the new harbour.

Myself and another member of our group aren't fishermen, however the crew had all tackle ready for us and baited our hooks so we didn't have to disturb our friends who knew what they were doing.

Soft drinks and beer were available on board.

It was also a pleasure to meet to two other people who fished, Gert and his partner Dican (forgive me, I am sure I have misspelt their names) and we chatted and laughed for the whole time on board.

We arrived back at Altinkum at around 2 PM, 4 hrs sea fishing for a tenner !! on a lovely boat with good company and the sun shining. WHAT A BARGAIN .

So, serious fishers or beginners DO try the FLYING FISH
PS . The winner caught 4 fish, and it wasn't me !"
