  • We first visited the auction (around 5 pm on arrival of coastal trawlers). The auction of fishing each boat was a discovery for us. Know you that an anglerfish (monkfish after preparation) is a good fish that it is ugly. explanations provided by a guide "who knows". Then we visited Haliotika which describes accurately the lives of fishermen as well as the entire fishing. Nice and informative.

  • Exciting tour made by Philippe, a passion for the sea. Comments are colorful... Fish soup at 7 in the morning, "seasoned" by Philippe, is not to be missed under any circumstances. We do not see pass 3 hours, and the morning awakening is soon forgotten!

  • The crie is a must-do if you can get the timing right. The museum is excellent - I expected it to be boring but was captivated by the insights on fishing. Eye-opening. Even if you don't go to the fish sales, just watching the line of trawled head to harbour, speed round the lighthouse and unload is a real treat. Feel connected to the maritime, living culture and industry of the region.

  • Very well done, visit to better understand the profession of seafarer. The visit of the auction was very well commented by Cassandre, who knows how to adapt to its audience. Parents and children have enjoyed!

  • Very interesting to see in action the fishermen to return to sea, with their trawler fishing. He get out there see the reality of the work of fishermen. Bravo to all those men who risk their lives at any time, so that we can sit comfortably, eating their fish.
