Discover Blue Fishing Charter – 19'

Discover Blue Fishing Charter is your ticket to the perfect Mediterranean experience. Whether you want to go fishing, snorkeling, or sightseeing, Captains Kostas and Stavros will make sure you have a great time. With over 20 years of experience, they know every fishing spot around Crete and they know how to catch anything that swims these waters.

You will fish aboard a 19’ Oceanic Alter 570 boat, built in 2004. This inflatable boat is powered by a 115 HP Yamaha engine and can reach the speed of 33 knots. She’s fully equipped with navigational and safety electronics, as well as snorkeling equipment available at all times.

These trips are family friendly, so bring your kids along. They need to be at least 2 years old for combo trips and 6 years old for offshore trips. Life vests for them are provided. Captains Kostas and Stavros love to have beginners on the boat and teach them their first fishing moves.

Fish with live bait or switch to lures. Either way, you’ll have the best rods, reels, bait, and tackle available. The captains have a family owned bait shop “Captain Hook,” which is also going to be your meeting point.

You can try a variety of fishing techniques, such as jigging, trolling, or bottom fishing. Target Snapper, Barracuda, Common Pandora, Dentex, Dusky Grouper, and many more.

As the area offers so many opportunities, why not use them all? Drop a line for a tasty catch, snorkel and explore the world under the sea, or enjoy the sight of the rocky cliffs and turquoise beaches. Book with Discover Blue Fishing Charter and start your Mediterranean adventure.

With 20 years of experience, Captain Kostas and Captain Stavros learned to fish with their father. They know the Cretan waters like the backs of their own hands. Their family own the biggest fishing store in Crete, so you'll be sure to get the best equipment for any kind of fishing technique. Being in the fishing market for several years, Capt. Stavros has become a fishing professional! He's a great captain who can lead you to the best places and guide you on how to master several fishing styles, like slow jogging, or Tai rubber. Capt. Konstantinos is a real fishing expert! He travels a lot during the year in order to participate in fishing exhibitions, and learn more about new fishing gear and techniques. He's experienced in a lot of fishing styles, such as jigging, Tai rubber, Inchiku, trolling, spinning, and many others.
