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.

Delightful activity to do in such a beautiful location. The boat was nice, the swimming, the boat captain and there was plenty of time to enjoy Capri. Very fun.

Our host was amazing, he shared homemade limoncello and pistachio cookies with us on the way back. The views were amazing. Capri was nice, make sure to go up to the top the bottom is very touristy. We got to jump off and swim with floating noodles. Overall a really amazing experience, definitely recommend!

Fantastic trip, weather perfect. Captain David was fun and knowledgeable. Only 8 on the boat so private party experience. The isle of Capri and the grottoes need to be seen in person to believe the color. The drive and parking in Positano is tricky, give yourself plenty of time or stay in Positano the night before the trip. Well worth the price. Would recommend to anyone wanting an Amalfi Coast experience.

We had a great day on our boat cruise. The boat driver was terrific, the drinks were all included which was a pleasant surprise. The jumping off the boat was exactly what we wanted to do, the grotto's were amazing and yes you must do the Blue Grotto second time for us and just as amazing as ever. Good value for money experience.

We found this boat cruise after looking through a few options and in terms of price and what you get we thought this was the best deal. You need to book in advance, so we went on August 30th and our captain was Pepe. We were picked up in Praiano, which worked out great for us. If you're concerned about the pickup spot you can just call the number provided and they are very friendly. It's a maximum of 12 people so it's a small group but plenty of space for everyone. We picked the rest of the group up in Positano.

Pepe made sure everyone was comfortable, had something to drink, etc. We stopped off to swim and Pepe had noodles and goggles for everyone. There was a shower to rinse off all the salt water before getting back on board. He gave everyone a towel and we went to the blue grotto. The group was split on waiting so we ended up staying but for us it was fine. There ended up being a few seasick people after bobbing on the boat for 1-2 hours.

We went to Capri and had 3 hours to wander. It's best to look up what you want to do in advance to make sure you can check them off the list. The main thing we've heard is that people get leather sandals made in Ana Capri but we didn't make it there unfortunately.

We stopped to swim again on the way back and it was at a beach only accessible by boat - amazing. Pepe came around afterwards with fruit, drinks, and his homemade limoncello which was delicious! He was not worried about getting back at a specific time which was fine for us. We enjoyed his leisurely pace and appreciated all his efforts to make sure everyone was comfortable.

Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the Amalfi coast. Great way to see the coast and enjoy the water from another perspective.

Pepe was great!

We had an amazing time and our boat captain Pepe' was the best!! He was engaging, entertaining and all around a wonderful guide and captain. He even served us fresh cantaloupe and homemade lemon-cello at the end of the trip. He was just amazing and I would recommend him and this very enjoyable outing to anyone.

We had the most wonderful day on the boat trip to Capri. It was well organised with Elizabeth giving us detailed information on what we would be doing and tips on what to do and how to get around Capri. The boat trip along the coast and around Capri was one of the highlights of our holiday and made special by our fantastic boat driver Fabio who was the perfect trip host skilful, knowledgeable, helpful, kind and amusing. Thank you.
