    FAQ

    The price of this private fishing charter from Chania starts from 450 euros with an open deck RIB (group of up to 4 persons)*.
    *On the boat, more travelers (up to 5-6 persons) are welcome, but they can not all fish simultaneously.

    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.

    If you want a fun day with your kids, we will fish with baits in shallow water near the coast, targeting 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. If you are a beginner or your small kids want to fish, we will go to shallow water and use bates like shrimps or worms targeting smaller fish. During Summer, the fish are more suspicious, and fishing is more difficult as we can’t keep the baits alive due to the 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 this half-day trip, you can take up to one fish of 3 kg with you. Then, we can clean it and arrange a nice restaurant for you and your family/company to eat the fish. Catch and release are also allowed.
