Fishing Tourism Kefalonia ‘Michalis’


Are you ready to live a day on a Greek traditional working fishing boat, taste the best lunch on board with the freshest fish and swim in the turquoise waters of the Kefalonian sea?
We start in the morning at 8 o’clock from the port of Agia Pelagia in Svoronata, 10km from Argostoli.
Antonia welcomes you with a handmade cake that prepares every day for her guests, Greek coffee and juice for our little friends.
We continue to the point, where Captain Michalis has cast his nets out through the night.
The traditional fishing methods used allow visitors to see lobsters, crabs, sparrows, shrimps, Scorpio fish, sea bass, sea breams and many more.
Keep in mind that fish vary from day to day and is not always the same.
As soon as the nets get up, they begin cleaning and storing the fish in the special ice coolers, as the law says.
After fishing, we head to a beach (close to where we fish), where there is no access by car except by boat.
There visitors enjoy the sun and have the opportunity to swim in the crystal blue waters of Kefalonia, whilst the captain and his wife Antonia prepare lunch in front of the eyes of the visitors.
Michalis will prepare the best lobster spaghetti you have ever tasted (naturally when lobsters have been caught) or “bourgeto” a traditional Kefalonia dish made with various fish.
Various fried fish will also be added to lunch.
Antonia, as Organic Farmer, always chooses from her own field the first quality vegetables for her delicious salads (Greek salad and potato salad), the oil used in salads is from their own olive grove.
The wine that visitors enjoy, comes from a local variety from the personal vineyard of Kapetan Gerasimo’s, father of Michalis.
After lunch fruits from the field of the family are offered, while guests relax under the shade of the boat.
After the meal, the return to the port slowly begins.
The duration of the trip is from 8 in the morning until 4 in the afternoon.

  1. This is a great day out with beautiful hosts.
    Antonia & Mixalis look after you from start to finish.
    Fascinating to watch the catch being hauled in, with an array of fish.
    Educational as well as fun as Antonia & Mixalis are passionate about what they do.
    Great food prepared and served straight from the sea, can’t get any fresher, all helped down with their own wine.
    A swim stop at a secluded beach or just chill and relax on the boat.
    Highly recommend this great trip!
