Plora Travel Boat Charters

Explore Crete with style! Plora Travel Boat Charters is here to make you a truly unforgettable day on this beautiful island. Your guide will be Captain Georgios Aretakis, who comes from a long line of fishermen. Fishing has been their family business since 1922! Almost a century of fishing experience speaks for itself.

Join Capt Georgios on a 37’ cruiser that accommodates up to 8 guests. This luxurious boat will make your trip enjoyable and comfortable, even if you’re not a fishing enthusiast. There’s lots of cozy seating space in the shade, a private bathroom, and an indoor bedroom and lounge. When you decide to take a break from catching fish, you can take snorkeling equipment that’s included in the price, and take a dip.

Your main targets of the day will be Snapper and Rockfish, but you can also land Seabrim and Black Brim. You get to keep the catch and you can also count on the crew cleaning it for you. If you’re planning to save it for later, bring a cooler, or go directly to the restaurant.

If you’re within 10 km distance from the marina, the crew can pick you up free of charge. Your fishing equipment is fully covered and you’ll also have soft drinks and fruit on the boat. You can always bring other snacks and beverages of your choice.

Whether you want to catch tasty Mediterranian fish or swim around secret beaches, Plora Travel can make it happen. Book your spot on their luxurious boat and get ready for a memorable day out.

Plora Travel is a family-owned business with a long tradition. Even before they started running their charter, the Aretakis family has been in the fishing business since 1922. With almost a hundred years of experience that's been passed by from one generation to another, there's hardly anything they don't know about these waters. Captain Georgios loves meeting new people and showing them how to catch fish.
