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.

Based on 27942 reviews by FishingBooker anglers

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!

We went out early to have calm seas in November. We let the Captain help select the best day/time to go out during our stay on Crete. The weather was perfect as he suggested.

When you go fishing in ios fist read something about the species you can catch.. Early in the morning or in the later evening theres a good chance to get a barracuda from the shore also groundfishing is a good option to catch many diffrent kinds of fish

From what we understand from the locals, the best way to obtain fish is through spearfishing in these waters. Seaze the Day are passionate about both fishing and conservation so they come to this naturally and from a love of fishing. It was amazing how they found fish.

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

We had a wonderful experience fishing and sight-seeing. My kids (first time fishermen) caught over 10 fish each. The captain was a great communicator before and during the trip to our English speaking family. We felt safe and relaxed. Highly recommend!

I thoroughly enjoyed my morning out with Skevos and his father Captain Mike. We fished for different species and caught red snapper, blowfish, flatfish, vampire fish and dragon fish. Then Skevos prepared the best Greek salad to go with bbq fish including fish we had caught. We also had a refreshing swim. Great value and good fun.

We went in September, while we only caught 1 fish, the snorkeling, crew knowledge on the history of Greece, and the lunch provided more than made up for it. The provided lunch was the best we had while in Greece.

We had a great time with Captain Makis and Ilias. They were both very knowledgeable fisherman and were very hospitable. The bite was a bit slow, but we were nonetheless able to catch a few groupers. Captain Makis cleaned and cooked the fish for us during our trip. We will use them again when we return to Santorini and highly recommend them if you’d like to book a fishing charter.

We had a fabulous trip with Elias and Makis. Makis responded quickly to any questions and stood by as our flights were cancelled. Although we didn’t catch anything, we had a great time with beautiful views and stops for swimming, a delicious Greek lunch and drinks. Would absolutely recommend!!!

The fishing trip was the highlight of the holiday even though only small fish was caught due to the high waves it was great to relax and enjoy swimming and delicious fish grilled on the barbecue. Captain and his partner was very friendly and family oriented and was a pleasure to meet and spend time with them. Thank you again for a wonderful trip 😊

Captain Mikos and Ilias were amazing! They were funny, entertaining, and highly experienced. I really didn't know what to expect. We caught a grouper, and they cooked it and served it to us for lunch. Delicious! However, even if we hadn't caught any fish, this trip still would have been fun and interesting. They took us snorkeling over a ship wreck and we cliff dived off an old castle turret. Very fun and family friendly.

I went fishing with them on Thursday. I had an amazing trip. Both father and soon made me feel very welcome.The fishing spots they took use too were great and there was no crowd. The fishing ist good for beginners, they really look after you. But also if you have expirience with fishing you have a great trip and it ist never boring. The food they prepared was great.

We can’t say enough good things about this fishing and sightseeing tour we booked with captain Makis and Ilias. They were both so friendly and had a lot of great knowledge to share. We only had a short amount of time but they packed it with so many great experiences, all without feeling rushed. We caught fish, saw the volcano and around the island, snorkeled and then ate an absolutely fantastic lunch they prepared freshly for us. Thank you for an unforgettable day!

This trip was great! Capt Mike and his first mate Niko were the perfect guides with lots of experience and stories on the history of the area. They couldn’t have been more accommodating on their beautiful vessel! Dinner was something dreams of Greece are made of with fresh vegetables from the Capt’s garden along with fresh caught fish…absolutely amazing!! Highly recommend!
