Spearfishing in Greece

In the cradle of Western civilization, the ancient sport of spearfishing is still a popular and effective way of catching fish. Bordering the Ionian, Mediterranean, and Aegean Seas, and containing 6,000 islands in the water, Greece is the ideal location to get your fish on. Grab your speargun or pole and get to know these rich and diverse waters. 

Where and When to Go

The country is geared up for tourism and fishing, so finding the right charter isn’t too difficult. But, with three seas to choose from, it can be tough to decide where to go for your spearfishing adventure. Just beware, spearfishing is prohibited in May.
 
In the north of the country, Halkidiki spreads out like fingers into the Aegean Sea. A tourist hotspot in summer, there are plenty of options to take you spearfishing. Get your fix of spearing as you target some delicious and exciting fish for a tasty treat at the end of the day.
 
While the north of the country is just as fruitful as the south in summer, it can get cold in winter. Your best bet of escaping the winter blues is a trip to the islands or out of the coast closer to Athens. The port of Rafia on the mainland will take you to the southern Aegean Sea, where you’ll get to explore the numerous islands that block the path to Turkey.
 
Speaking of the islands, they’re an ideal starting point for spearfishing in Greece. Popular tourist haunts such as Astypalea and Paros have plenty to offer tourists in the way of watersports. Out in the Aegean, you’ll be on the productive reefs in no time.
 
Cross over the mainland and the Ionian sea separates Greece from the south of Italy. Holiday-makers from all over Europe make their way to Zakynthos and Kefalonia, and spearfishing is a must-try activity! Fish the productive reefs between the islands and beyond and get your fill of fish. 
 
The pick of spearfishing in Greece comes on the isle of Crete. Bordering the three seas, experience unrivaled fishing and spearfishing. Head to the wealth of reefs, a number of islands, or even go offshore to battle it out with some of the bigger beasts of the Mediterranean and get the pulses racing.

What fish will I catch?

Fish is a staple of the diet along all of Greece’s coasts and especially on the islands. The Mediterranean is full of these delicious creatures, and you’ll have the chance to land your own. 
 
Dentex, Pandora, Groupers, Mackerel, and Seabass are just some of the menu-topping favorites you’ll go after. There’s no better taste than that of success. Watch the sun go down while devouring the fruits of your labor and make your holiday one to remember.

How to Prepare

Since 2017, Greece has abolished spearfishing licenses, so that’s one less thing to worry about. As well as providing your fishing permit, your captain will also provide plenty of drinks and snacks. But, with trips lasting up to two days, feel free to bring your own lunch and dinner on longer trips out.
 
You should also get in touch with your captain beforehand to check whether spearfishing equipment is included in the price. Sometimes, you’ll need to bring your own gear or pay a surcharge, so don’t get caught short!
 
Other than that, you’re good to go. With a professional guide, you’re in safe hands when spearfishing in Greece. Book your next trip and get the most out of your holiday!

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.

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.
