Full description

Embark on a sea adventure with your friends or family on this traditional fishing boat trip from Zakynthos. Experience the excitement of fishing as you learn how to catch your own fish. Enjoy local tastings and lunch, including Greek coffee, pastries, local olive oil, wine, and fish.

The fishing tour takes off from the main harbor in Zakynthos. As you head out to sea, you may get lucky and be able to meet the famous loggerhead sea turtle, dolphins, and Mediterranean monk seals. Enjoy the morning serenity while having greek coffee accompanied by fresh baked goods. as you head to the spot to start throwing the fishing nets. In the meantime, learn all the methods you'll see used to catch the fish. After putting fishing gear into the sea, anchor to a quiet and isolated beach where you'll stay for the next 2 to 2.5 hours. Enjoy fresh summer fruits and dives from the boat.

Later, gather the fishing equipment and see how lucky the group is. During this procedure, anyone who may want to can participate if the captain considers it safe. With your catch, head to the next stop, another peaceful beach.

At the beach, swim and enjoy the warm sun while your freshly caught lunch is being prepared. Grilled, fried, or in a soup, the fish will be accompanied by risotto, fresh local vegetables, salads with extra virgin Zakynthian olive oil, and local homemade wine. Once lunch is prepared, grab a plate and relax under the shade of the boat and listen to the sounds of the Greek sea and the Ionian breeze. With full stomachs of fresh seafood and wine, head back to Zakynthos for drop-off.

It was truly amazing! George and his mom are adorable! We stopped at some amazing places to swim, learned about the island history, learned how to net fishing and ate the freshly caught fish. The group is max 12 people so it is not crowded at all. Highly recommend it!

Very nice trip!! Everything is very well arranged. We had called for our transport just to be sure. We got a very nice man on the phone who arranged everything. When we arrived at the fishing boat she still knew it was my birthday so congratulated me right away! The guide tells a lot and is very enthusiastic about fishing. Several times we stopped and everything we caught we got for lunch. Freshly prepared by his own mother who was also on board! So highly recommended!!!!!
