Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Cyprus

According to customer reviews, Paul’s Fishing Charters, Friend Ship North Cyprus, and Fishing Mate Cyprus are some of the most popular fishing charters in Cyprus. Full list of top fishing charters in Cyprus.

The average price for a private 4 hour Cyprus fishing trip is $512, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $749 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

Paul’s Fishing Charters, Friend Ship North Cyprus, and Fishing Mate Cyprus all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Cyprus.

The most popular fish species you can target are Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), Albacore Tuna, and Amberjack. Top fishing techniques include Jigging, Bottom Fishing, and Trolling. Offshore fishing, nearshore fishing, and wreck fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

There’s nothing better than a family vacation to Cyprus. You can all enjoy the sun, sea, and delicious food when here. Most importantly, you can enjoy fishing in Cyprus! It’s no surprise that fishing is a big part of island life, but the variety of both inshore and offshore fishing will leave you amazed.

Offshore Fishing

With over 250 species calling these waters home, there’s something to catch in the Mediterranean Sea every day of the year.

You have the best chance to target Swordfish in northern Cyprus out of Girne. Fishing out of Larnaca or Ayia Napa in eastern Cyprus could have you hooking into Common Pandora, Dusky Grouper, and Sharks. Head to Limassol in the south for Common Pandora, European Seabass, Dentex, King Mackerel, and Yellowfin and Bluefin Tuna. Paphos in the west is a hot spot for Grouper, Amberjack, and Common Pandora.

If Tuna is at the top of your to-catch list, come fishing from June until August. It won’t take long during this time to get a hook-up, as the Tuna come within 12 kilometers of the shore. In Paphos, this equates to a 20-minute boat ride before you’re at the top fishing grounds. Due to the size of the Tuna and difficulty reeling them in, this type of trip is not recommended for children.

If you’re after a tasty Mahi Mahi or a Bonito, head to Cyprus from October to December. This is great for children as you can fish very close to the shore.

Most fishing trips start early in the morning and are around five hours long. The fishing is most productive in the mornings and a shorter trip helps you to avoid the midday heat. Fishing experience is not required and everyone will have fun reeling in a range of species. Fishing for Squid is popular in Cyprus, especially at night.

You don’t need a fishing license when trolling offshore. However, you’ll need a license for spearfishing, trap fishing, and nighttime fishing with spear guns.

Freshwater Fishing

Freshwater fishing is a well-kept secret in Cyprus. There are plenty of stocked dams and reservoirs where you can fish. There are 15 freshwater species stocked in Cyprus. These include Largemouth Bass, Catfish, Trout, Pikeperch, Carp, Bream, and Roach.

The largest reservoir is the Asprogremmos Reservoir. This is great for Catfish and Trout. The Yermasogeia Reservoir holds Carp, Silver Bream, and more. The Achna Dam  has some of the biggest Catfish, as well as populations of Largemouth Bass, Carp, Roach, Tilapia, and more. For some of the biggest Carp, head to the Kouris Dam.

All anglers over 12 need to have a fishing license when fishing the dams and reservoirs. Regulations are more strict for freshwater fishing than offshore. This includes limits of the catch and size, when the open season is, and regulations on what time of day you can fish. These are subject to change, so have a local guide with you and check the current regulations before heading out.

How to Prepare

Most charters will have snacks and drinks on board. Fishing gear and tackle are usually provided so you rarely need to bring your own gear. Always check the captain’s policy regarding how much of the catch you can keep, or whether the fish belong to the boat.

You’ll need to bring sun protection, a swimsuit, and a towel with you.

There’s no better time to come fishing in Cyprus!

Socrates picked us up from our hotel at 5:30am, which was a bit of a shock to the system on holiday, but it was clear that it was better earlier when we were fishing, as there was increasing amount of other craft around. Lovely clear waters, varied locations and a very helpful guide, all in all, a great experience

If you’re looking for the big game strapped to a chair, this is probably not your trip. But if you’re looking for a family friendly, welcoming and fun fishing trip with a very nice captain I can warmly recommend a trip with Socrates. I’m pretty sure he raised my daughter’s interest in fishing so I can get her to join me on future trips as well.

Eventhough the weather was against us and we did not catch any fish, I had a fantastic trip. Beautiful skies, a bit choppy seas and a skipper that did everything possible to make me catch a fish. Panatiogis is a great host, very much recommended! Thank you!

We booked a 5 hour trip with SEAze the day. Our captain was super friendly and couldn't do more to accommodate us. No expense spared with tackle. Tailored the fishing to our needs and requests. Highly recommend. 10/10

Easily one of the top 3 things to do whilst visiting Cyprus. Nicolas and Panagiotis were communicative, flexible and very patient. We were a group of inexperienced fishers and Panagiotis explained what we were doing and the equipment, and was funny and engaging. The views were gorgeous and we all agreed that we weren’t ready for the day to end and that we’ll definitely do it again for a full day next time. So much fun - a brilliant way to pass the day

Great experience but we didn’t catch a “big” fish, just a dozen 1lb or less. We DID see sea turtles in the bay when we returned 👍
