What You Can Expect

Small-Group Capri Cruise from the Amalfi Coast

Admire the famous Capri Faraglioni on your small-group cruise!

Head to the Positano, Praiano or Amalfi port in the morning, and board your 33-foot (10-meter) boat. Then sit back, relax and enjoy a drink as your expert captain navigates your boat away from the Amalfi Coast.

When the picturesque seaside villages that dot this famous stretch of coastline slip from your view, stare out to sea and admire the private islands and natural reserve of Li Galli in the sea around you. Cross the southern end of the Bay of Naples toward Capri, and circumnavigate the chic little island, enjoying several stops along the way.

Use the stops to swim and snorkel in various coves and lagoons, snap photos of the famous Faraglioni rock formations and learn a bit about the island from your captain. Look out for Casa Malaparte, the Punta Carena lighthouse and Marina Piccola, a docking spot for luxury yachts. Stop to visit the popular Blue Grotto, once the private bathhouse of Roman Emperor Tiberius, if you wish. The entrance fee is at your own expense, but the incredible colors of the lagoon make the expense worthwhile.

Disembark at the main port of Capri and enjoy roughly four hours of free time to explore the island independently. Listen to recommendations and directions from your captain for local sights, activities and restaurants. Perhaps stroll through the gardens of Villa San Michele, visit the terraced Gardens of Augustus, ride the chairlift up to Mt Solaro or explore the area of Anacapri — it's up to you. All entrance fees, activities and food on the island are at your own expense.

After your time on Capri, reboard your boat and make your return journey back to the Amalfi Coast. Pass the marine park of Punta Campanella and stop to swim and snorkel again in a pretty bay in the area of Nerano. Finally, arrive back in Positano, Praiano or Amalfi in the early evening.

Excellent. David was very accommodating and allowed us several swims which were much appreciated considering the weather. His trip to his own blue grotto was wonderful. Capri was great and the concluding glass of traditional Lemonchello topped things off. A word of warning-- at the conclusion we were expected to make our own way back from Positano to Praiano from where we had been picked up at the start of the tour.

To say my fa.I'll enjoyed this would be an understatement. The grottos were amazing and the swimming was so much fun. We didn't go into the blue grottos because of the wait of over an hour. It was fine by us, we got to swim more. We had 2 little ones and had plenty of time to tour the island.

Amazing scenery and Captain Pepe was the ultimate tour guide - so accommodating and gracious!
He adapted the tour to suit our wishes and provided whatever we asked. Plenty of water, drinks, snacks and a great group made the day incredible. It's like having your own private yacht - this tour is a must do if you want to enjoy the Amalfi coast!!

A wonderful day on this day trip to Capri. Our boat driver was fabulous with his boat manoeuvres into the grottos and making deals with the small fishing boat operators at the blue grotto. It was crazy and busy waiting 'in line' for our turn to enter the blue grotto but thanks to him and a can of coke and a few cigarettes we didn't have to wait long at all! At the end of the day he shared his own home made limoncello and recipe!! with us!

Fabio was fantastic!! We left the dock in Positano around 9:15 and returned just about 6pm. Definitely bring sunscreen! He had a light snack and water/soda/beer beverages for us. You can also bring a change of clothes, there is a bathroom on board. Fabio stopped 2x for us to jump in the water and take a swim 1x on the way there and the other on the way back would def recommend if you want a little more out of your boat ride to capri.

Our Capt David was great, he remained flexible and gave us opportunity to see parts of the coast at our pace. Very accomodating and the tour was definitely the highlight of our trip. A MUST DO for anyone travelling this area and seeking to see the amazing coast from the water.

A lovely and memorable trip. Fabio, our guide was friendly and helpful. He showed us all the sites along the way on the boat trip and swimming in the water was so refreshing. A great day was had by both of us.

Highly recommend!! Many other tours crammed too many people n one boat. We only had 12 people and were very comfortable. Our captain was fantastic and made the trip very enjoyable with special goodies, stopping at all key spots, gave us time to swim in the sea and time on beautiful Capri.

The tour was awesome! Our guide Achille was super friendly, knowledgeable, and hosted us like a professional. The boat was very nice and I felt like a celebrity. Thank you!
