Sea at Maremma Natural Park

Experience the sea: fishing tourism in the Maremma

One of the most incredible experiences you can have when on holiday in the Maremma region.

Fishing tourism means an amazing day spent fishing, a journey into the blue sea of the Maremma parklands, enjoying delicious seafood cooked directly on the boat: undoubtedly one of the most incredible experiences you can have when on holiday in the Maremma region.

You just need to wake up early and get on board the Sirena boat, in Talamone, where Paolo Fanciulli, an eco-fisher, will be awaiting for you with his crew. Immediately after breakfast (some coffee, a slice of cake and some flatbread) the hooks are cast into the water and soon the first sea bream get caught.

After the longline fishing, it's time to collect the nets - 1500 meters long - that bring sea breams, squids, scorpion fish and crabs. At work, Paolo tells us about his incredible life and his never-ending struggle against trawler fishing.

Trawlers drag heavy nets along the seabed and everything that is captured is indiscriminately taken, destroying the seabed. This is why I thought of installing some big underwater marble sculptures to hook the nets and create an underwater "art museum" on the most beautiful and accessible parts of the sea floor".

After collecting and cleaning up the nets, it is time to go swimming. A dinghy is available for guests to get closer to the coast.

The view is stunning. The contrast between the blue of the sea and the green of the mountains is extraordinary. The images speak for themselves. This is our amazing lunch on board.
