Following Michael’s boat

We start in the morning at 8 o’clock from the port of Agia Pelagia in Svoronata, 10km from Argostoli (the capital of the island).

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. Visitors are closely following the process of how nets picked up and have the opportunity to help to the extent they are allowed for their own safety and to make any questions they want.

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 ,while 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.

The purchase of fish at the end of the day is more than welcome.
