Yannis Paterakis, a fisherman from Sougia, now uses his traditional wooden caïque for excursions, taxi boat trips as well as regular trips to Lissos.
The regular trip to Lissos is at 10.00 from Sougia and returns at 15.30 from Lissos costing Euro 4.00 per person per trip. This runs from April to October when the sea conditions allow.
You can also book the boat as a taxi boat all the way to Paleochora in the West and Agia Roumeli and Agios Pavlos in the East and if you wish you may stop on the way at Lissos, Anidri beach (Gialiskari), Agios Antonios, Tripiti and Domata.
The slow pace of a traditional fishing boat may not be ideal if you want to get to any of these places quickly but it is also more comfortable and ideal if you want to enjoy the passing landscape or take photographs.
It is also possible to arrange fishing trips.
You can contact Yannis (who speaks some English) at (+30) 6973220472 to arrange a trip.
