Fishing with local fishermen

By Maria P.



Experience an amazing fishing adventure boarding a real working fishing vessel.  We meet in the seaside town of Porto Cesareo, 20 km west from Lecce, directly at the local harbour. We’ll then board our fishing boat and meet a family of friendly local fishermen, who will guide us through their fishing process. Then it’s our turn! We will each try our hand at fishing with the help and guidance of our professional fishermen friends.  We will spend the entire late afternoon and evening aboard the boat, fishing, chatting, laughing and learning. Take the opportunity to jump in the water for a swim in the warm waters of the Ionian Sea, over a ship wreck teeming with sea life, or simply relax and take in the beautiful sea air. On the boat, we will enjoy a traditional seafood onboard feast based on our catch – it doesn’t get fresher than that!- matched with a tasting of local great wines (red, white, rosè). Finally, dining al fresco at an idyllic seaside trattoria, where a seafood menu will be served (additional price €25).
