Fishing Tourism Michalis (Agia Pelagia - Svoronata)
"A day in the life of a Kefalonian fishing boat"
Join Captain Michalis on-board his beloved hand built wooden fishing boat.
Fishing Tourism was the first fishing boat in the whole of Greece licensed to take guests out for a full day at sea.
A working fishing boat, Captain Michalis works the Ionian sea 12 months of the year and can take up to 12 guests at a time. This is a fun filled family day at sea from start to finish.
The day starts at 8am where all guests are greeted with Antonias fresh home-made cake and coffee from the port of Agia Pelagia in Svoronata. Captain Michalis heads out to where he had cast his nets throughout the night. Guests have the opportunity to help haul the nets and see what has been caught throughout the night. Once the catch has been cleaned peppered and stored properly Captain Michalis then heads off to a beautiful secluded beach only accessible by boat where you can swim sunbathe and relax in the clear Ionian waters while Michalis and his wife Antonia prepare the catch of the day right in front of your eyes. Antonia is a keen farmer, an Organic one at that! Only the tastiest freshly picked homegrown vegetables are used in all of the dishes. Lunch includes the Captains famous Lobster spaghetti Bourgeto (a traditional dish made with fish) Greek and potato salad and fresh fruit grown on the couples farm. We're sure you will love this freshly made feast! After a relaxing day at sea the Captain slowly heads back home where you will arrive back at port Agia Pelagia at around 4pm.
This is a great day out for all of the family.
