Are you a fishing lover, or someone who never had the opportunity to try it? It’s time to “Seaze The Day” and spend it on the water with Captain Panagiotis and Minos. This dream team speaks both Greek and English and will do everything to show you Crete’s fascinating scenery and catch fish. They know the best fishing spots and make sure you come back to the marina with plenty of catch in the cooler.

The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 27’ inflatable Fost, which can accommodate up to 7 guests. Newly restored in 2019, this vessel is powered by a 250 HP F&N engine and comes with navigational and safety equipment. In case you would like to try snorkeling and see what’s going on beneath the surface, your captain will prepare snorkeling equipment, as well.

The captains usually take the boat 20–25 miles out but sometimes they go even further, up to 40–45 miles off the coast. It all depends on what you want to catch and which trip you booked. Each trip is different because it’s customized to your wishes. If you don’t want to spend the whole day fishing, you can simply go swimming or sightseeing. Your catch of the day will most likely be Grouper, Dentex, Snapper (Common Pandora), and Squids (Calamari).

The crew provides snacks, drinks, and lunch (under request). The captain will get in touch with you before the trip to check if you have any preferences or if there’s any type of food you’re avoiding. Your fishing equipment is also provided, while a fishing license is not necessary.

With Seaze The Day charter, your vacation to Crete can get even better. You’re only a few clicks away!

About the Captain

Panagiotis Bardis
Chania, Greece
22 Customer reviews
Response time 9 hours
Member since January 2019
I'm Panagiotis and I started fishing when I was 5 years old. I remember going with my father, who was my first teacher for spearfishing. I have always been close to the sea, and from a very young age learned to dive deep, which gave me the advantage to learn quickly about the habits of fish. I became a freediver and a freedive-instructor. For a long period of my life, I was a professional fisherman on the island of Crete, and that's the reason I am the most suitable to show you around the beauty of our sea, nearby the city of Chania in Crete. I am the owner of two very reliable professional RIB boats where we can go fishing and I can assure you that you will want to come back and experience this adventure again!
