Fishing tourism in Procida – a night as fishermen

We collaborate with two fishing boats, thanks to which we offer the possibility of carrying out fishing tourism activities in Procida: witnessing all phases of anchovy fishing and conclude by going to the Pozzuoli fish market to sell the catch of the day.

Based on availability we divert requests to the m/p “la gemella” or “Ciro III”.

It is certainly a long experience (about 12 hours), suitable for curious people with a spirit of adventure. The ideal guest is willing to give up sleep and comfort in order to participate in a one-of-a-kind activity. In fact, in other tourist areas the fishing tourism activity is carried out in a completely different way: you go out in the morning, do some fishing and then we all go to the sea.

In Procida fishing is culture and tradition; it is daily bread for hundreds of people. It cannot be reduced to an alternative to the beach.

Fishing tourism in Procida allows those who are not local to immerse themselves in the life of a Procida fisherman in an authentic way.

Alternatively we also offer daytime fishing tourism: a morning of fishing on the o’Giotto fishing boat.



Fishing tourism allows sea lovers or simply curious people to live a more unique than rare experience: spending a night on a fishing boat like an authentic sea dog fishing for anchovies.

Thanks to this experience it will be possible to discover all the tricks and techniques that Procida fishermen use to catch anchovies, exquisite blue fish with well-known organoleptic properties.

Departure is scheduled for around 8.00 pm from Marina Corricella, a characteristic and suggestive fishing port on board the motor-fishing vessel ‘La Gemella’ or ‘Ciro III’ (depending on availability). During the fishing trip it will be possible to admire the fishermen, between Procida and Pozzuoli, during the spectacular phase of placing the nets and attracting the fish thanks to the lampare, particular lamps placed on 2 or more small boats, called daughters. Equally exciting is the phase in which, once the anchovies have been attracted, the daughter boats move to allow the fishermen to tighten and close the bottom of the nets and bring the catch to the mother boat.

The maximum number of participants is 8 people, while it is also possible to participate alone.
