Get a true taste of the ancient island with Fishing Mate Cyprus. Captain Stelios has been fishing his entire life as a hobby and recently decided to pass on his experience to everyone who wants to learn something new. Like he turned his passion into a profession, you can turn your curiosity into a new skill.

Aboard Stelios’ custom made 32’ boat. Newly built in 2019, she features the latest safety and navigational devices. There’s enough room for 12 guests to come aboard but five can fish at the same time, so you’ll have to take turns. The boat is equipped with Penn sportfishing gear, a fighting chair, tuna tubes, and even spearfishing equipment (by request).

You’ll most likely go after Cubera Snapper, Dentex, Bonito, Mahi Mahi, and Albacore Tuna. The great news is that you can land any of these once hooked, even if you’ve never caught fish before. The captain and skippers are right by your side if you need their assistance. You can keep the catch and they’ll clean it for you. The only fish that stays with the crew is Albacore Tuna.

On board, they offer hot and cold beverages and rich snack platter including the fish special rubs and refreshments. The charter offers free transport from your location and back (within Paralimni, Agia Napa, Derinia and Sotera). Your fishing equipment is covered, so you only need to bring some sunscreen and a camera.

Fishing Mate Cyprus is here to teach you everything you need to know about fishing. Seeing happy faces on board, especially children reeling out a Tuna is one of the best moments for Capt. Stelios. Join him next time you’re in Cyprus.

Member since December 2019
Captain Stelios has been fishing ever since he was 5 years old. It was a hobby for most of his life, while he was a professional photographer. Now, when he's retiring, he decided to turn his lifelong passion into a full time job. It's not just about catching fish, he loves to understand how everything works. That is why he likes studying fish behavior and keep himself updated on new techniques.

The catch was rather disappointing, but Capt. Stelios and his crew were great. Apparently the mackerel season will come later...
