From the Fishing Sector of Estepona we offer a new tourism product which combines fishing in all its authenticity, with the enjoyment of a natural environment. This is linked to the spectacle of our coast, and a selection of guided activities that will make for unforgettable moments and the opportunity to see the sea from the perspective of the people who work so closely with it.Pioneers in Andalusia, from Estepona Fishermen´s Association, have launched a new series of fishing tourism activities. Whilst offering a unique event and experience, there is also an opportunity to gain knowledge and insight into the activity of fishing, the crafts and customs of fishermen and the fruits of the sea.

The first one in October-15 was a tour of the fishermen area with information on how the men work and what tools they use. We had a lovely lunch in Plaza Virgin del Mar and finished off the... More

Even our 15 year old succumbed to the charms of the offshore boat trip, trailing the wakes of the local fishing boats to understand how and where they land their rich catches. Tour leader and wife of local fisherman, Shonia, can't do enough for you, including packing homemade sandwiches for hungry kids. We found the trip both exhilarating - spotting... More

We took this trip in April, when the temperature is still springlike and the winds cold. Shona is a lovely lady, so genuine and warm, and a delight to be around. We saw a couple of fishermen on their boats with their catch of octopus, and the highlight was the scallop grower who came onto our boat with scallops and... More

We went on this today with 2 visitors from Ireland. What makes this trip so special is the enthusiasm and knowledge that is delivered from your guide who happens to be married to a local fisherman. She explains all about the different techniques required for different catches depending on season. We left Estepona port and then headed off to where... More
