More and more couples are considering destination weddings for their grand affair, and the pros are vast. Breathtaking photo opportunities are around every corner and what’s more,  depending on location and number of attendees, a wedding abroad can often prove more affordable than staying local. But perhaps one of the best advantages is that destination weddings allow the bridal couple to share in the guest experience, participate more fully in all activities on offer and with it, reconnect with their nearest and dearest in a more genuine way.

Today Sunshine Weddings Spain takes an indepth look at nautical tourism with Turismo Marinero.

Just 35km away from Gibraltar (GIB) Airport you can find the serene and unspoiled Spanish beach town of Estepona. Located at the foot of the huge Sierra Bermeja mountains, this old town full of winding cobbled streets and white washed houses offers beautiful blue flag beaches, Spanish cafes, bars and a fishing port, home to Turismo Marinero.

This nautical tourism company offers complementary and sustainable alternatives to artisanal fishing and activities, but always keeping at the forefront of their values the respect to the fishing tradition in the area, a livelihood Esteponeros are are passionate about.

What better way to start your wedding week with your nearest and dearest than with the warmth of the sun, the sea breeze and the sway of the waves making you feel totally relaxed.

Discovering the authentic world of artisanal fishing through guided tours, gastronomic routes, excursions to the sea and educational workshops for young sailors.

The most popular seafaring experience for wedding guests is their special ‘family and friends route’, ideal to chill out for the afternoon while enjoying the sea breeze and pleasures of sailing. What’s more, this route offers the possibility of dolphin watching once out of the harbour area. Observe the dolphins swim freely and peacefully in the water and share with them that unrivalled feeling of liberation at sea, or combine it with a memorable sunset sailing route and enjoy the spectacular sunsets seen from the Estepona marina, with breathtaking views of the Strait of Gibraltar in the distance.

For those feeling a bit more adventurous, an unforgettable day of recreational fishing at sea, with the opportunity to learn from a highly experienced skipper, is also a must, especially when the boat Captain, with 35 years of fishing experience, knows all the best places to fish in Estepona, and on the coast from Gibraltar to Marbella.

This sailing route includes drinks and snacks on board, high quality fishing equipment and all the necessary gear for a memorable day at sea.
