What is the itinerary for each trip option?
Half-day trip: you will first see how professionals fish. Feel free to bring a sandwich or some takeaway breakfast, and you can eat in the boat while watching the captain and sailor go on with their fishing routine. Then, the captain will take you to a place where you can catch your own fish with fishing lines. Finally, you will visit a secluded beach and have the opportunity to swim in crystal clear waters. You will return to the port at noon.
Full-day trip: here, the itinerary is the same as the half-day trip. However, you will now have more time to catch your fish in two locations. In addition, the boat will drive you to a more distant and picturesque beach. And instead of returning to the port at noon, you will enjoy a free meal on the boat. The lunch will include fish soup, bread, salad, and a soft drink.
Personalized: if you want to book the boat with the captain just for yourself, you can make a specialized itinerary and visit whichever part of the island you wish. It can be anything from a short excursion for fishing in the open to a full circle of the island. You can discuss the possibilities with the captain or ask for recommendations.

The trip usually starts at the fishing port of Skala Kallirachi. However, you can also often find the boat at the port in Limenaria.
