PRIVATE FISHING BOAT
Why not hire out your own fishing boat with your own Guide/Fisherman to teach you the ropes and guide you through a great Fishing Experience in the Seas of Kalkan (06.30-09.30am @ 500 lira per boat), fishing and seeing all kinds of fish like: bivalves/molluscs including mussels, oysters, octopus, cuttlefish and squid. Then we have cnidarians, flower like in appearance, with tentacles to trap their food – these include anemones, jellyfish and corals.
We also find common crustaceans including crabs, lobsters, prawns and shrimps, together with many types of sea urchins, sea cucumbers and although fewer in number these days, sponges.
Fish are plentiful – blennies, cardinal fish, conger eels, damsel fish, garfish, groupers, lizard fish, moray eels, parrot fish, picarel, sea bream, skates and rays, red mullet, flying fish and scorpion fish. Oil rich fish include barracuda and tuna. Sharks are very rare – they prefer deeper waters, but the Mediterranean does have them.
But what really fascinate many people are the local turtles (reptiles), and the mammals of the sea – and near Kalkan that means dolphins, seals and on rare occasions, whales.
