Sicily Fishing Charter

Sicily Fishing Charter is located on the northwest coast of Sicily, based in the port of Castellammare del Golfo. This fishing center was born out of Captain Bruno Niceta’s innate passion for the sea and a deep knowledge of these waters, which has been devoted to fishing for many years.

This passion led Captain Bruno to want to pass on, through fishing, his respect and knowledge of the sea and its inhabitants to all visitors and help them discover the natural beauties of this corner of Sicily.

Sport fishing activities of Sicily Fishing Charter, given its strategic position, include the whole area of ​​the Gulf of Castellammare, the splendid scenery that goes from Terrasini to San Vito lo Capo, including Scopello and the rich waters of the Zingaro Nature Reserve.

With Capt. Bruno, you can try your hand at a wide range of fishing techniques, including trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, drifting, and even spearfishing if you let him know in advance. Depending on the season, you’ll get a chance to land Bluefin Tuna, Mahi, Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, Bluefish, and much more.

All this will take place aboard a 20’ Quicksilver Commander center console, fully overhauled in 2015. It comes with a 115 HP Yamaha engine, a shower, Lowrance HDS Gen3 fishfinder, Navionics GPS, a fighting chair, tuna tubes, and the best safety gear.

Snorkeling gear is available June-September for four guests and spearfishing equipment can also be provided for two fishermen upon request. The charter will include all the tackle by brands such as Penn and Xzoga, live bait, and lures. Snacks, drinks, and fishing licenses are also courtesy of Sicily Fishing Charter.

Choose the technique that best suits you and book an outing filled with ​​relaxation, fun, and the search for big fish!

I'm born and raised in Sicily, on the Mediterranean sea. Still living on the island, I love the sea and of course, fishing. Since I was five years old, I have been fishing. At ten years old, I was already fishing from my father's boat alone. I like all kind of fishing techniques, especially offshore fishing, live bait trolling, and Big Red Tuna (Bluefin) fishing. I started guiding to share my knowledge with all the people that want to learn more about fishing, to show them all the Mediterranean species we can catch, and to make them fall in love with offshore fishing. My motto is: "It’s easy to be happy standing in front of the sea."
