We loved the boat ride. There were enough seats for everyone. Snacks and drinks were a lot to choose from and were reasonably priced. The audio guide was detailed enough to keep it interesting. And the schedule was punctual which was important to us.

Watch-out, you may buy a ticket for a certain time BUT the cruise is run by Dentur Avrasya on Kabataş Pier. So they have their own specific cruise times. I recommend checking ahead, and not just appearing at your booked time. We turned up at 10:45am (ready for 11:00am), and were told the cruise is at 12:45pm - so come back at 12:30pm. The cruise travels north and sticks close to the golden horn bank, and turns around back south at Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge. And then sticks close to the Asian side. Because of this, I recommend getting a seat on the Port side of the boat (left). Note, the boat reverses out of the dock. The seats are just plastic garden seats that you can move around as you require. There is an audio guide. But it partly becomes obsolete when parts of the audio guide blast out of their own speaker in Turkish and then English.
