FAQs about Fishing Charters in Greece

The average price for a private 4 hour Greece fishing trip is $587, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $1,026 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

According to customer reviews, Pirate Fishing Tours, Mirabello Boats Fishing Trips, and Fishing Trip Agia Pelagia are some of the most popular fishing charters in Greece. Full list of top fishing charters in Greece.

Pirate Fishing Tours, Mirabello Boats Fishing Trips, and Fishing Trip Agia Pelagia all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Greece.

The most popular fish species you can target are Amberjack, Dentex, and Dusky Grouper. Top fishing techniques include bottom fishing, deep sea fishing, and trolling. Offshore fishing, nearshore fishing, and inshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Always wanted to fish like a local? Hop aboard one of the many fishing charters in Greece. Local captains across the country offer up a whole host of angling adventures targeting world-famous saltwater species. You’ll be able to get your fish on in one of three fish-filled seas – the Ionian, the Aegean, and the Mediterranean.
 
Your target species tend to stay the same around the country. Mighty Bluefin Tuna are popular, and are often joined by Skipjack and Albacore varieties. Opt for a trip that lasts at least six hours to get the most out of your day. You can troll or try handlining – just make sure you bring a good pair of gloves! 
 
Tuna aren’t the only hard-fighting fish here. Marlin lurk around the islands during the summer months, as well as Swordfish, so why not opt for a full day Billfish battle? Trolling is popular and, on your way to the hotspots, you’ll likely bottom fish for Dentex and Common Pandora. 
 
If you’re looking to stock your cooler with a tasty Greek favorite, you can cast a line around the shorelines for Squid. These trips usually take place under the cover of darkness in fall and winter, and are a great option for families. Trips lasting 4-5 hours yield plentiful results, and give you time to have your catch cooked up in a local taverna.
 
You’ll find charters dotted all over the country, docked at local ports. Santorini, Legrena, and Paliouri are Tuna-fishing favorites, and Zante is a hotspot for Marlin. Squid lurk around Rhodes. No matter where you go, you’ll find a captain waiting to take you out!
 

Rules & Regulations

Whether you’re fishing alone or alongside a local captain, you don’t need a license in Greece. Some species are subject to restrictions due to overfishing, and your captain will tell you more about this.

January

January is one of the quieter fishing seasons in Greece, but you can cast a line for tasty Squid around the islands. Head to Chios to see ship models being carried by singing fishermen on New Years Eve.

 
February

Average temperatures are around 10°C, yet that doesn’t stop Apokries, a collection of extravagant carnivals happening around Greece. Things are picking up under the water too, with Squid being plentiful. 

March

Easter is a big deal for the Greek Orthodox, so keep this holiday in mind if you’re traveling in March (the date changes yearly) and plan your time around it. Under the water, you can hook the first few Dentex!

April

There are plenty of events to enjoy in April, from Athens International Film Festival to their Jazz Festival. And as for the angling action on offer? April sees Bluefin Tuna arrive in larger numbers, and Dentex fishing is hot.

May

Fishing in May remains very much the same as in April. It's all about Dentex and Bluefin Tuna! Skipjack Tuna are also on offer, and you can cast a line for toothy Barracuda, too.

June

The Athens & Epidaurus Festival, which begins this month, is a huge cultural event that draws crowds from across the globe. Under the water, a whole other event is taking place: the arrival of the first Swordfish!

July

Get into the Greek sunshine, it'll do you a world of good! Take in a show at the Hydra Puppet Festival or at the Philippi Festival in Kavala, or head out on a fishing trip, where you'll target huge Tuna and Swordfish.

August

More festivals take place on land this month, including Olympus Festival, and the Aegina International Music Festival. The waters around Greece are bustling with Tuna, Swordfish, Dentex...the list goes on!

September

Athens has an International Film Festival in September. Children go back to school, which means tourist attractions are much quieter, as well as the waters! Swordfish fishing remains hot, as does Tuna fishing.

October

Ochi Day is celebrated on the 28 so expect parades and celebrations throughout Greece! Under the water, you can go after the last of the Swordfish and Tuna, or head out at nighttime for a Squid fishing adventure.

November

November is the beginning of Greece's off-season. The weather is cool, the tourists are gone, but life goes on in Greece, and so does the fishing! Squid are popular, as well as Dentex, Amberjack, and small Tuna.

December

There are plenty of traditions in Greece around the lead up to Christmas – the cold won’t slow these guys down! Squid fishing is a popular winter tradition. Join in on the fun and catch a unique Christmas dinner option!

You'll probably only catch small fish. It's more of the experience of being on a Greek fishing boat.

These are fish on the smaller side for more experienced anglers looking for larger species a private tour is more appropriate

Accommodated 8 of us on the boat with ease. Both the Captain and mate are extremely knowledgeable and know what they are doing. Caught a nice schoolie mahi which the captain and mate cooked up as well as many other dishes prepared by the Captain, Makis. If you want to see the Caldera with just your family, learn about the island, waters, and much more, booking with the Pirate team will not disappoint. Myself and the family thank you, it was worth every penny! 🤙

A fantastic day. Sadly we were unlucky and didn’t catch anything, but it was a really enjoyable day nonetheless. Highly recommended. We endorse all the great things said in the previous reviews. A ‘must’ day trip in Santorini.

Awesome crew, fantastic location, amazing fish! What more can I say, besides the fact that I will be doing this trip again in the future. Never meet a more friendly captain in all my fishing charters. The captain really knows what he’s doing when it comes to catching fish. Whether it be what bait or poles to use and where all the local fishing honey pots are located. The captain also gives very helpful advice to any beginner or rusty fishers who might not be as confident in their abilities.

We had an incredible experience with the amazing and experienced crew. they took such great care of us. The boat was perfect and they took us to wonderful locations around the island. The fishing was exciting, we were so lucky and caught 2 blue fin tuna. My son said it was the best day ever. We eat the fish we caught, which was beautifully prepared by the captain. They are lovely people and I can’t thank them enough for giving us such a wonderful experience. Highly recommended.

Phenomenal Experience!!! I would highly recommend this trip. These guys were beyond nice and provide a first class trip. We caught a good size grouper and the captain prepared it right there on the boat and served us the MOST delicious meal. While he was preparing the food we were able to snorkel around a small crystal clear bay. ❤️

The Pirate & The Parrot team offers a superb fishing experience with plenty of laughs, ice cold beer, and homemade snacks. I highly recommend Makis’ outfit based on my own experience and I cannot rate Pirate Fishing Tours highly enough! Makis knows fishing. He loves jigging - make sure you ask him about this. Caught two tuna on our 3hr trip - wish I’d booked the 5 hr option as the time simply flew by far too quickly. Thank you Makis & Illias!

This was the trip of a lifetime. Captain Mike and Ilias went above and beyond to make sure our day was fun filled and enjoyable. The tour was filled with spectacular views, historical insight, amazing swimming and snorkeling, and delicious food. Our family of five had one of our best experiences of our time in Greece. Thank you, Captain Mike and Elias. PS The tomato fritters are amazing.

We had a wonderful afternoon with captain Mike. We went to 3 spots catching fish than off to a spot to snorkel and swim. We had a lovely bottle of wine, snacks, including fresh cucumber from his garden. The boat was comfortable and clean. When we make it back to Crete again, we will definitely do another trip with him!

Our family of 4 had a wonderful time fishing with Captain Makis and his first mate. We all caught barracuda and enjoyed a delicious lunch of the fish we caught and amazing side items made by his wife and a local bakery. We also had a chance to swim and learn a lot about the islands and their history. It is one of the highlights of our vacation and I would highly recommend it.

Our experience with Captain Michalis was great, great fun and very professional. We’re served as kings with a lot of nice drinks and food (home grown). Took us to idyllic places and gave us all info about the region and coastline. He’s fun too and baptised as from today as magic Mike. We wish you all the best and hope to see you again one day; in Belgium or back in Crete.

We had an amazing time with Makis and Ilias. A great trip from start to end. Both made sure we felt very welcome and that we had everything we needed. Great views, swimming and snorkeling and of course fishing. Don’t expect catching anything is guaranteed- this is what fishing is all about - but we were lucky catching tuna, barracuda and jack, and had a great fish lunch. Good stories and insight about Santorini’s history. Highly recommended! Thanks so much Captain Makis and Ilias!!!
