If you're looking for a relaxing day out around Girne, you can do no better than to book a boat trip with Musa, on his traditional Turkish built Gulet - the Aphrodite (Afrodithe, as the boat is officially named). He has even been mentioned in the Lonely Planet tour book, for Cyprus!
You can book as a boat trip, or he is set up to go out as a dedicated fishing charter if you like. Musa can arrange for either a mixed group booking, or even a private trip, and there's no booming music! just tastefully picked background tracks.
Musa arranges the food of your choice, freshly cooked by himself, which is included in the booking price. His cooking is excellent and easily matches that of any restaurant in the area. Drinks are available at a very reasonable price too. Don't miss out on his brandy sour, it's his speciality. Gorgeous. If you're in luck, Musa will cook whatever's caught as you travel along the coast, as he'll generally have the fishing lines out even when it's a tour.
There are usually two stop-offs along the coast. Snorkeling equipment is available, but we usually take our own anyway. Don't miss out on the opportunity to swim in the warm crystal waters along the coast. He drops anchor in areas usually busy with a variety of fish to swim among.
Then to finish, there is champagne and fruit when you get back to the harbour.
