All about the Let’s go fishing in Western Crete.

Let’s go fishing in Western Crete

Our original fishing boat was custom built, hand crafted, made from Iroko wood, in the style of the traditional fishing boats that were used for many decades in the Mediterranean. The boat is a beauty to its captain and a trusty companion for many sea adventures!

Our 14,75 metre fishing boat departs from Kissamos port heading East or West in Kissamos gulf (depending on the season and weather). Our experienced captain Mihalis will take you to the fishplace where you will learn how to prepare the fishing nets or longline before we start fishing, check our catch and cook a delicious fresh lunch or dinner with the guidance and help of the crew.

On our way we may meet dolphins and the famous “Caretta-Caretta” turtles swimming in the blue waters of Kissamos gulf. After a short trip we reach the fishplace where you will have the chance to experience fishing with nets if you choose a morning trip or longline if you choose an evening trip. You are welcomed to help us empty the nets or longline and feel the excitement a fisherman feels at the sight of a good catch!

You will then have the opportunity to prepare and cook in a traditonal way the fish you caught before, with the guidance of our crew. Olive – oil, fresh vegetables, complimentary local wine and fresh fish makes the perfect meal for you to enjoy under the shade of the boat, feeling the sea breeze and aromas!
