What is there to do Besides Fish?

If you are not really interested in fishing but you wish to accompany your friends and relatives in a Santorini Fishing Tour there are plenty of interesting things for you to do on board!

For example you will be able to enjoy the tour of the island as we find the best fishing spots and the boat's staff will guide you with all information about the sights and attractions that you will see in the caldera and around the island. There is also swimming, snorkeling and eating the fish that the rest of us have caught. You can enjoy the unique volcanic landscape of Santorini and the famous sunset while others are trying to catch the fish!

Moreover, the  fishing boat is comfortable and you can sunbathe and relax as you are sailing in the Aegean Sea and around the island of Santorini and there is even a cabin if you want to take a nap out of the sun. But if you do you may miss something spectacular.
