Our local experience offers the authentic practice of fishing with a well-equipped instructor, a local fisherman of Karakoy, giving you a chance to discover our unique ways of life. The fisherman, Volkan, will set up everything for you and provide you with the information necessary on how to fish. Through friendly chats with other fishermen and the exceptional view of the whole Istanbul, we will spend about three hours in the pier and hopefully will not turn out empty handed :)

Who This Experience Is Good For

This is a lovely experience for those who are down to learn new practices or experience the traditional way of life of Karakoy’s locals. Perhaps, it can be a chance to impress the others for those who are experienced in fishing as well.
