Experience unforgettable fishing in Kyrenia with "Cyprus Friend Ship” and Captain Bekir Kasapoglu. You may have flown with him if you’ve ever boarded a Boeing 737 but on this occasion, you’ll hop aboard his boat and head out in search of the Mediterranean’s best game fish!

Your vessel for the day is a 29’ saltwater fishing boat, powered by twin 115 HP Mercury engines. She can accommodate up to 8 anglers and features a toilet, kitchen with a fridge, a multi-media system, and tons of seating for everyone on board. GPS and Fish Finder help you locate your targets and the live well keeps your bait fresh.

Whether you’re a beginner, a pro, or a family looking to enjoy their time on the water – everyone is welcome aboard. The warm Mediterranean waters are home to plenty of delicious Tuna including Skipjack, Dogtooth, and Bluefin. You’ll also have your shot at a Grouper, Barracuda, and Mahi Mahi!

Capt. Bekir brings along all the gear you need for a successful day, as well are lures and fishing licenses. There are also snacks and drinks to help yourself to, so you can fully relax and enjoy your time fishing under the Cyprian sun.

At the end of the trip, he’s happy to clean and fillet any catch you choose to keep. For a truly unique experience, choose a trip that includes a visit to Capt. Bekir’s restaurant, where you’ll prepare and enjoy your fresh catch in an authentic environment!

Head out on a fishing adventure with Friend Ship North Cyprus for a trip to remember for a lifetime!
