    TOUR DESCRIPTION

    Antikythera is a small island between Crete and the Peloponnese. It is located 35 miles north of Crete in the Aegean Sea and has a population of less than 50 permanent residents. It is said among the locals that it is the best fishing spot in all of Greece, with a rich underwater ecosystem! At the riffs, the small islets, and the deep rocky seabed, you will find a variety of fish, such as groupers, amberjacks, red snappers, and tunas!
    Suppose you are seeking a once-in-a-lifetime experience, fishing in virgin fishing spots with the best local fishermen, to one of the smallest and least populated islands in Greece, still unexplored by tourists. In that case, this is a trip you shouldn’t miss! After fishing, we will stop at Antikythera’s Port to dine at a traditional tavern.

    Drinks, snacks, and fishing equipment are included.

    Suggested starting time: 7.30 – 8.00 a.m.

    FAQ

    The price of this private fishing charter from Chania starts from 1500 euros with an open deck RIB for groups of up to 4 persons.

    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.

    We share the fish that we catch. On this full-day trip, you can take up to one fish of 5 kg with you. Then, we can clean it and arrange a nice restaurant for you and your family/company to eat the fish, or we can eat it together on Antikythera Island in a local traditional tavern. Catch and release are also allowed.
