Me and my girlfriend went on a fishtrip together, 17-09-2021, and had an amazing experiece, we caught 5 dorado and 4 tuna, Yiannis was the best fishguide you could wish for, he knew excactly where the fish were.

After the fishing trip Yiannes invited us to his house to eat the dorado we caught that day, also his wife Elena was really friendly and kind.

For us it was the best day of our holiday, wish everybody who goes next the same,

Kind regards

Freddy and Camilla from Friesland💪

Yiannis is a wealth of knowledge and experience, and his obvious love for the sport is infectious. He was as excited about our catch as we were!

He explained every step of the process, and kept us motivated when fishing was slow. Once we found the fish, his expertise and coaching meant we came home with dinner.

This is really a special experience you can have on Zakynthos -- I highly recommend it!

I visit Zante every year with my partner and always try to squeeze a fishing trip in.

Zante has so much to offer when it comes to big game fishing and Yiannis the skipper is excellent and puts you onto the fish.

This time resulting in a huge yellow fin tuna and an albacore tuna.

In the past I've caught species such as sword fish and grouper. If you're a serious fisherman or just want to have a go, this is the trip for you, as its very reasonably priced and fantastic day out.

You also get to see dolphins and the odd turtle. I can say I highly recommend this trip.

Don’t book this trip in the summer when it’s hot, there is nearly no fish and we didn’t see any dolphins. One moment there was a dorado on the hook (last 10minutes, after 5 hours nothing) but the captains reaction was to late so the fish escaped, really amateuristic. If they see the weather conditions are bad (hot, no wind..) they should not accept bookings!

Phantastic attacs of four tunas - yellow fin, tanny and albacore tuna.
We landed three of them. 8 - 15 kilos on small takle.
And finally a strong dorado was hooked.

Crew: Yiannis, Cpt, Pedro, 1st officer and Elena at home, the good spirit

Fishing: Gerd, Monika, Charly and Brigitte

It was a great day for fishing. We met Yiannis our captain and fishing guide at his hotel, the borsalino studios in Laganas and he took us with him and his boat to the port of Laganas. The trip started with some turtle spotting and then we went out for trolling. We caught a lot of different tuna. Besides fishing we got to experience the amazing landscape of the Zante Coastline and also did a short detour into some of the Keri Caves.
Best of all was that Yiannis is a true local and he really knows what he's doing and where to go for fishing. We had a fun time on the boat and some really good conversation as Yiannis is absolutely fluent in English. After we arrived back at the Borsalino studios he even prepared some Sashimi for us made of the fresh caught tuna. All in all a truly amazing experience!

We had a great day with Yiannis and his son Petros - probably the highlight of our trip! We caught 6 tuna and one small Dorado which tasted delicious. Early start left at 7am and were on the water for 6 hours. Had been stormy the day before which I think bode well for fishing conditions.Yiannis has a good sense of humour and takes his profession seriously, eager for us to learn some tips and tricks throughout the morning. Would like to return again soon. Thanks for a great day!

I had a great time fishing with captain Yiannis from Big Game Fishing Zakynthos.

I was lucky to catch a small tuna even though the tuna season was over.

Yiannis is a very nice guy and he gives great instructions and tips on how to land (big) fish.

Nice boat and good professional equipment.

Very good value for money experience.

We went fishing for five hours and didn’t see any fish. For the price we paid, we were really disappointed.
One advice, ask for fishing conditions before going and if the water is too warm (as it was for us), don’t go there or you will be really disappointed.

Went out with my dad, brother and brother-in-law and could not have had a better time with Yiannis and his son. This is the real deal and hard to find in Greece. Yiannis is very experienced and charismatic. He took the time with us (newbies) to feel comfortable and be prepared. We caught a bluefin tuna and its truly an experience to be had!! Will do again!!
