What you'll do

My Island of Ios is known amongst the Greeks as having some of the most beautiful and undeveloped beaches in the Aegean.

Join me for a “choose your own adventure” day! All equipment provided for snorkeling, fishing, or a private beach picnic. As a boat captain on Ios for the last 10 years, I know every secret beach, snorkeling spot, and fishing location within a 10 mile radius of the Island. I take pride in my knowledge of the Island and love to teach others about our beautiful paradise.

I've been living in Ios my entire life. I like to call myself an Island Boy with a love for the sea. Growing up in Ios and raising a family here, I've been greeting tourists 20+ Summers while managing one of the most successful and famous bars on the Island - Slammer Bar.

Having fished this Island my whole life, I know every secret beach and fishing/snorkling spot on the Island. In 2014, I started a fishing tour company on the Island and since then, I've given 100+ tours around our special Island and have cherished forging new friendships and sharing the beauty of our Island with tourists.

Where you'll be

Depending on the wind conditions and your preferences we will most likely take the boat to either Pico Nero, Tripiti, or Kolistani beach. These beaches are only accessible by boat and can make for a magical day in the Aegean Sea.

In the off season, I love to take my family out to these beaches and spend a day on the boat. My son absolutely loves some of the secret snorkeling and fishing spots I know and I love to share them with guests.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 6 reviews.

We loved our time with Fotis and Sam! This was one of our favorite things we’ve done on our trip so far. They took us to a spot where we could snorkel into some caves. My wife saw an octopus (I missed it). Then we did some fishing in between locations and had some Greek beers, and then they took us to a beach that is only accessible by boat where we could snorkel around. They were both really friendly and knew the area extremely well and where to go. We would highly recommend to anyone!

C était un superbe tour en bateau nous sommes allés dans les grottes ainsi que sur des plages reculées magnifiques à l eau turquoise ! La pêche n a pas été glorieuse pour nous mais c était très chouette

Over the course of travelling for a month- this was my favourite day. We took a nice boat to secluded beaches and swam in clear blue water and even a little cave. You could fish or snorkel and see the underwater sea if you wanted to. You could lay down on the front of the boat while he was driving for an instagram worthy pic haha. They gave us drinks- beer and/or water/pop, and a sandwich, as well as, told us to come for a free drink with them afterwards. Amazing day, I will be thinking about the blue waters when I am at work again.

Great time out on the boat with Fotis. Definitely worth it for a day tour of the island, with some snorkelling and fishing.
