Fishing in Nice
There’s some good deep sea fishing off the coast, with tuna, marlin, swordfish and sea bream, and there’s some good tour expeditions running out from major ports along the coast. Or of course you could just hang a line over the edge of your boat and sit back and wait for the bite, or fish off the rocks for a relaxing afternoon.
To enjoy a day out on a family fishing trip then we recommend speaking to some of the specialist companies who offer guided trips and excursions or yacht charters for coastal or deep sea fishing. You have a few options for fishing charters with a range of budgets, from 50 euro per person for a casual affair to 2800 for 10 people for the day for the charter of a luxury sportsfisher with professional fishermen. Most of the fishing excursions along this stretch of coast operate out of Golfe Juan or Mandelieu-la-Napoule, or in the other direction, out of Beaulieu-sur-Mer, a port between Nice and Monaco. There are also small local operators along the coast who don’t have websites- you’ll see their signs saying ‘Peche au Gros’ in the port.
