F/V Panagia departs from Zakynthos main harbor at a time that is convenient for passengers, heading to the spot that we will stop to catch our fish with traditional Greek methods. The fishing tour will last approximately 8-10 hours (depending on the weather and the fishing spot). If we are lucky, then we get to meet on our way the famous loggerhead turtle "Caretta-Caretta", dolphins and "Monachus-Monachus" seals. Afterwards, we head to the spot that we will throw our fishing nets. On our way there we will enjoy the stunning morning serenity while having Greek coffee accompanied with fresh baked goods. On the meantime our crew will describe to you, all the methods we are going to use to catch our fish.
After the throwing of the nets we will anchor to a quiet and isolated beach, where we will stay for the next 2-2.5 hours, giving you the ability to fish with fishing line while enjoying fresh summer fruits and dives from the boat. Then we will gather the fishing equipment and see how lucky we got. During this procedure anyone who may want can participate if the captain considers it safe.
With our catch we will head to our next stop, another beautiful and peaceful beach where we can swim and enjoy the warm sun while our freshly caught lunch is being prepared. Grilled, fried or in a soup, our fish will be accompanied by risotto, fresh local vegetables, salads with extra virgin Zakynthian olive oil and local homemade wine.
Once we finish our lunch under the shade of the boat, full of experiences and delicacies, we will relax on our boat, having the wonderful Greek sea, the Ionian breeze, the sea food tastes and the wine as our company, we will head back to Zakynthos main harbor around 5 pm, filled with great memories and once in a lifetime experiences.
