    *Fishing needs patience; the amount and the size of the fish that we will catch depend on the day, the weather conditions, the season, your experience, and luck.

    The price of this 6-hour private fishing charter from Chania starts from 850 euros for groups of up to 4 persons. You can extend your trip for an additional 80 euros per extra hour.

    The techniques may vary depending on the season, the fish species, the weather conditions, and the fishing spots. Usually, we do spinning and bottom fishing with silicone lures and jigs or use live bait (small fishes or squids). Our usual targets will be Groupers, Dentex, Amberjacks, Squids, or a variety of smaller fish.

    We will first catch squids between January to April and September to December. This will be our main bait for bottom fishing. Squids are the best bait for our waters, especially if it is fresh!

    In Summer (May-August), we will primarily fish with silicon lures and jigs at depths between 30-100 meters, or bait (shrimps -squids) targeting groupers, snappers, and small tunas. During summer, the fish are more suspicious, and fishing is more difficult as we can’t keep the baits alive due to hot temperatures. Therefore, we recommend combining the tour in the summer season with a fun day out in the water, swimming and relaxing!

    We share the fish that we catch. On full-day trips, you have the option to take up to one fish weighing 5 kg or a total of 5 kg of fish*. Afterward, we can clean it and arrange a pleasant restaurant for you and your family/company to savor the catch. Catch and release are also allowed.

    *Additionally, you can relish carpaccio made from your own fish, paired with sea salt directly collected from the Cretan shore, while on the boat!
