Why not spend a day at sea on a traditional fishing boat learning the ropes from a professional rather than lazing around the beach? Fishing Trip organizes excursions where you can help fishermen cast and collect nets or, alternatively, try your hand at deep sea fishing, waiting for that thrilling tug on your line while enjoying the scenery off the coast of Nea Makri, east of the capital, an area rich in snappers and bream. You might spot dolphins or seals, and there will always be time for a swim or the chance to explore with mask and snorkel.

 

The organizers provide snacks, fresh fruit, soft drinks and wine, but you should also pack sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, a bathing suit and non-slip shoes. The day ends with an onboard meal made from the day’s catch.
