- The hospitable fishing boat "Dimitrios-Efthimia" departs from Katelios harbour at 8.00 a.m heading for the fishplace which Captain Dimitris has chosen depending on the season and the weather. On our way we may meet dolphins and the famous turtles "Caretta-Caretta" swimming in the deep blue waters of the Ionian archipelago.

- We reach the fishplace in about an hour where we will have the chance to experience fishing with nets not only for Cods, Red-mullets,Scorpion fish, Dentex, Seabreams but also for Lobsters, Norway Lobsters and Crabs, or fishing with longline for Sword fish and Tuna. Only when we pull in the nets do we realise how excited a fisherman gets at the sight of a good catch.

- After fishing we steer to a beautiful isolated beach which has access only by boat. Meanwhile we empty the nets and we store the fish in ice. We anchor by the beach and there you will enjoy a wonderful swim in the turquoise crystal clear waters while Efthimia will be preparing a delicious meal.

- Under the shade of the boat,feeling the sea breeze we enjoy a good lunch made of the fish we caught, fresh ogranic vegetables and homemade wine of fine quality.

- We return at Katelios harbour at about 3.00 p.m.

  • What an Incredible day!! Took off on time - 8.00am. Tea and coffee was served alongside a selection of pastries. Great start! Pulled out of the harbour and about a mile out to sea, the machines kicked into action and the nets were being reeled in. We all mucked in with removing fish from the nets,….apart from the scorpion fish, that was left to the professionals. We pulled over to a cove and went for a swim in the most spectacular turquoise sea, whilst our hosts - the wonderful Eyffi and lovely Dimitrios cleared up and started cooking the catches of the day. We then went on to the next cove and moored up. Swam again, then used some of the natural clay to cover ourselves in the hope of looking 10 years younger….when washed off….ummm?? Lunch served up, was spaghetti in tomato sauce. Half a lobster each, lots of red mullet, cuttlefish and a large member of the prawn family, forgot it’s name, accompanied with Salad, wine and beer. It was a fantastic day!! Our hosts could not have made it more pleasurable than it was. The scenery was spectacular, the water, the food, even the other customers on the trip, were fabulous fun. Thank you guys for the most memorable and brilliant value for money. Totally recommend this trip!!!
  • An amazing trip...Efi and the guys were so friendly you instsntly felt like old friends. The boat is well equipped and impeccably clean. Coffee and cakes on arrival. Plenty of drinks for the day, and Efi's homemade lemonade is a must. Sorting the fish from the nets is as hands on as you want, the choice is yours. The food Efi produces, both the cooked fish and homemade salads is both delicious and plentiful. Scenery second to none snd we stopped for leisurely breaks at 3 secluded beaches. An absolutely stunning day out, loved every minute.
