Fishing Istanbul Bosphorus

Fishing in Istanbul – Enjoy throwing a line in Istanbul’s Bosphorus

Swimming & Fishing Charter Cruises by Private Yacht

Rent our boat for a joyful day of cruising, chilling, swimming and fishing in Istanbul!

There’s no better way to relax and refresh on a sunny day in beautiful Istanbul than taking off from the city in our beautiful yacht for a wonderful private swimming and fishing trip.

On the way you’ll enjoy great swimming and fishing opportunities in peaceful, idyllic and secluded bays, complemented by a super-relaxing experience on board our well-serviced yacht.

Soak up the sun on the cushioned sun-pads on the front-deck, chill-out in the shade of the outdoor lounge and flybridge areas, or cool down with a refreshing beverage or cocktail from our well-stocked bar.

With a focus on swimming and relaxing, we offer a choice of cruise routes to either the Black Sea at Poyrazköy (Northwards), or to the Princes’ Islands (South-Eastwards). With either route you’ll enjoy spectacular views of Istanbul from the comfort of your own private yacht as you spend the day cruising, swimming, fishing and chilling!

This is ideal for couples, families or small groups of friends looking for a special day out together or way to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Fishing Rods, Lines & Equipment

For your fishing in Istanbul experience, we provide standard fishing rods + lines free of charge on board Zoe Yacht (please let us know at booking time the number of people).

Our yacht crew are from local mariner families and know the best places to cast a fishing line and try your luck for some fishing opportunities. They will be happy to help and show you how to use the equipment.

What Fish Might You Catch?

While there is no guarantee about catching anything, there is every chance you might and you’ll still have fun! Depending on the season and your luck, commonly found are Blue Fish, Bonito, Whiting, Sardines or Horse Mackerel.
