The Port

Castiglione della Pescaia port is located at the mouth of the river Bruna, on the Tyrrhenian Sea. This canal port is part of the main nautical infrastructure for tourist arrivals and fishing activities.

The marina can hold boats up to 15-20 m in length. As it is a river mouth, the seabed has a medium-shallow depth.
It has two protective piers and a dockyard reserved for the mooring of pleasure boats. During the spring and summer season mini cruises set out from the port for the islands of the Tuscan archipelago.

On 1 November 1973, Ambrogio Fogar set off from the port of Castiglione della Pescaia aboard the Surprise to sail single-handedly around the world from east to west, against the prevailing currents and winds. He completed his voyage on 7 December 1974, the feast of Saint Ambrose, after almost 400 days at sea.
