Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Greece

According to customer reviews, Pirate Fishing Tours, Captain Manolis – Rhodes island, and Fishing Trip Agia Pelagia are some of the most popular fishing charters in Greece. Full list of top fishing charters in Greece.

The average price for a private 4 hour Greece fishing trip is $591, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $930 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

Pirate Fishing Tours, Captain Manolis – Rhodes island, 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 Dolphin (Mahi Mahi). Top fishing techniques include Jigging, Trolling, and Bottom Fishing. 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

Both the captain and first mate are very knowledgeable, they have a lot of fun, and they teach you so much about santorini and greece in the process. We even had fresh caught grouper (about 2 hours old) on the boat

We wanted a special experience of fishing big fish in the Mediterranean. The weather was bad, so we had to change the schedule. But fishing was a very special experience. We each caught more than two fish. The captain and crew were very kind, and we had a lot of fun

The captain went above and beyond to find us fish, the weather was rough and difficult but we had a great time catching probably close to 50 fish each, to top it off we then found shelter in a cove and he cooked a lovely bbq of fresh fish and Greek salad couldn’t beat it!

We have no words to express the fun we had and how attentive and welcoming they made us feel! Both Captain Makis and Ilyas made the experience a very pleasant one. We had no idea what to expect and from the moment we got picked up at the dock we felt like we knew them for ages. We got to learn about the area, my husband caught a fish, we had a most wonderful lunch and we just took it all in and will take a lovely memory with us for sure. Will definitely recommend!

Best idea I had in Santorini was to book a trip with captain Mikas and first mate Elios, what a experience. Launched from Oia in a 10 meter boat and was blown away by the different perspective of seeing the islands/volcano from the water. Mikas and Elios were very knowledgeable of the area, also great entertainers. I love fishing but on this trip it was an after thought, highly recommended.

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! 🤙
