Cyprus Offshore Fishing

There’s no better way to explore the plentiful waters of the exotic Cyprus than going offshore with an experienced captain at the helm. This is exactly what Cyprus Offshore Fishing is all about! Captain Barbaros Özkaptan operates out of beautiful Kyrenia, known for its historic harbor and waters teeming with a plethora of species.

Climb aboard his impressive 44’ offshore sportfishing Wellcraft boat, which was fresh on the water in 2014. It can take you cruising at the top speed of up to 30 knots, impressive for a vessel of that size, all thanks to its twin Volvo engines. Stable and comfortable, she can take you and up to 7 other anglers fishing at the same time without tangling lines.

You’ll find professional navigational and safety gear on board, along with tuna tubes, outriggers, downriggers, and a fighting chair. This boat will provide you with so much more than just fishing gear – it’s fully air-conditioned, has a toilet, shower, kitchen, and beds, and it’s wheelchair accessible. Not to mention it also has a multimedia system and a TV. Just note that smoking on board is not allowed.

Your trip will launch from Kyrenia harbor, then head in the direction of Turkey. Captain Barbaros will take you after Tuna, Swordfish, Grouper, Marlin, and whatever else crosses your path. So get ready for some jigging, trolling, deep dropping, and much more.

The charter will cover all the fishing gear (even spearfishing equipment), as well as licenses, food, drinks, and catch cleaning. Just bring your lucky rod (if you have one) and an adventurous spirit!
