Some things you can only do at a certain time of year – that's what makes them so exclusive. What a success last year!!! Be out in good time for this year's conference & lobster fishing starting September 25, 2023.

The lobster fishing always starts the first Monday after September 20 and runs until December 31. This year the lobster fishing starts on September 25, 2023. Lobster fishing at Hotel Villa Maritime belongs to the fall, we are proudly one of the largest operators with real fishing boats in this part of Bohuslän. We go out and smell the lobster pots and in the meantime get to know the skipper's knowledge about life as a lobster, the secrets of lobster fishing and Marstrand's history.

The waters around Marstrand are renowned for their fine lobster fishing and it's no coincidence that the sharpest lobstermen live here. You get to experience both the beautiful archipelago environment and the lobster fishery up close, and you don't have to be an avid fisherman to be fascinated by the "black gold of the sea". You will have to pull the lobster pots from the bottom, clean the cages (hopefully with lobsters in them) and last but not least, bait the cages back to their proper place.
Our conference & lobster fishing package includes lobster fishing, conference room, accommodation in our nice hotel studios, lunch, afternoon coffee and lobster soup or seafood platter with 1/2 fresh lobster in both choices and a nice breakfast buffet the next morning.

The proximity to Landvetter & Gothenburg (about 45 minutes) makes Marstrand the perfect starting point for lobster fishing in Bohuslän. Enjoy the evening with a delicious lobster dinner in our own restaurant as well as excellent accommodation at the quayside on Marstrand Island. It doesn't get any better than this!


Our Lobster Fishing packages include lobster fishing, fully equipped state-of-the-art conference facilities, accommodation in our fine hotel studios, delicious lunch, afternoon coffee and lobster soup with 1/2 fresh lobster. (Note that you can exchange the Lobster Soupe for a seafood platter if the whole party chooses to change), accommodation in a double room and a lovely buffet breakfast.
