What you'll do

Varazze is part of the Ligurian Riviera known for its clear waters and for its culinary specialties. The rendezvous will be at 4 am at the fishing port. Here you'll meet our crew, afterwards you'll be welcomed on board. We'll give you a brief explanation of the work we are going to do, describing the gillnets, places where we are going to fish, and fishes we are looking for. You can watch the crew in action, while having fisherman's breakfast with hot focaccia and a glass of white wine.
Other things to note
A few days before setting off, we will get in touch to make sure the weather is safe for us to go out at sea.
The time varies depending on the season, and therefore also on the type of fishing. The duration of the experience is just an indication, it can vary based on the catch, the weather etc.

I am Matteo, the captain of Capitan Morgan's vessel, together with my girlfriend Genesis and my best friend Gianella, we decided to start a fishermen cooperative to show people the ancient and tiring work of fishermen. Our goal is to transmit to people the passion we put in such work and the respect we have for the sea.

Where you'll be

We will sail in the clear waters of the Gulf of Varazze in the dawn light, and with any luck you'll see the dolphins swimming.

We enjoyed the trip very much! The crew is extremely friendly and relaxed. The jump in the water was one of the best moments. But also the work with capitan Morgan was very exciting and interesting. Grazie!

What a way to start the day! Watching the nets come up from the deep whilst the sun comes up. Fascinating to understand how fish are caught, will always value them more now.

Un’esperienza davvero unica, non sarebbe mai stato possibile farla da solo. Matteo da appassionato ha preso il tempo di spiegarmi le cose e mi ha fatto entrare nel suo mondo affascinante per qualche ora. Vi ringrazio tanto!

Ein grossartiges Erlebnis das ich unbedingt weiterempfehlen kann! Die Stimmung am Morgen, das tolle Boot, das Frühstück und der feine Kaffee waren super. Uns wurde vieles erklärt und alle Fragen beantwortet. Mein Mann konnte mithelfen was ihm sehr gefallen hat. Die beiden Gastgeber sind sehr warmherzig. Danke für dieses einzigartige Erlebnis!

Es lohnt sich früh zu buchen, da das Ereignis nur bei optimalen Bedingungen durchgeführt wird. Dann lohnt es sich aber richtig. Eindrücklich auf dem Boot zu erleben wie es morgen wird, Eindrücklich die Arbeit die hinter nachhaltigem Fischfang steckt. Man kriegt mit wieviel Respekt die Gastgeber von der Natur, dem Meer und den Tieren haben. Ich durfte vieles ausprobieren, es ist aber auch voll in Ordnung wenn man einfach nur genießen will.
