An alternative to the usual boat trip would be to take the fishing tour from Bodrum harbour. Smaller than the usual tour boat, but with an optional sun deck, the boat’s crew and Captain are all seasoned fishermen, with extensive knowledge of the Aegean waters off the coast of Bodrum. With an abundant sealife of various fishes such as Black Gobie or Tuna, the possibilities for the discerning anglers are many.
With its sparkling Aegean waters, the sea will tempt you to cool off as the need arises. The adrenalin rush of busy Bodrum disappears into the glorious coastline and you beging to relax and take in the slower ambience of the fisherman and his craft.
You will set out to sea and enjoy a day with your rod in hand. Throughout the day if you wish you may pull up your rod and take a dip in the sea yourself. Likewise if any family or friends have joined you, who are not there for the fishing, they may also take a dip overboard to cool off!
While you are watching your line (or dad fishing) don’t forget to look out to sea. You are likely to see other kinds of life out there such as dolphins or turtles. Yet another great photo opportunity!

Most definitely. If one parent wants to fish and another simply sunbathe this is the best way to meet half way. Non fishermen can join the boat and simply observe, swim or sunbathe. There is no pressure either way. Children can enjoy the sun deck or ‘have a go’ at fishing with Dad. Lunch is served on board and the whole family can enjoy a day on the fishing boat. Singles and groups also enjoy the fishing boat tour. Comparing your catch is a great way to make new friends(or frenemies).
