What You Can Expect

Amalfi Coast Day Cruise: Sorrento to Positano or Amalfi

See the famous Faraglioni Rocks from the deck of the cruise ship

Your full-day Amalfi Coast cruise departs from the port of Sorrento or Castellammare di Stabia in the morning. Step aboard the 259-person boat where you're invited to sit back, relax and enjoy the views. Your vessel is equipped with a large air-conditioned dining room and bar, bathrooms, showers and a spacious sun deck with lounge chairs to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable journey.

Cruise along the Bay of Naples to the Island of Capri with a 30 minutes stop in its crystal waters near the White Grotto for swimming and to admire the scenery with the wonderful “Faraglioni” rocks. Then skirt the marine reserve of Punta Campanella, Nerano and Li Galli to the mainland. Soak up views as you cruise along the beautiful Amalfi Coast toward the town of Positano.

Pre-book your lunch to enjoy a typical 2-course Italian meal (sample menu below); otherwise, you may purchase your own a-la-carte items and drinks at the onboard snack bar or restaurant.

Nearing Positano, you can choose to take a tender to shore (additional cost) or continue to Amalfi. At either destination, you'll enjoy a couple hours of free time to explore on your own and marvel at the dramatic coastal scenery. Explore the sights by foot or rent a canoe, try windsurfing, or go snorkeling or scuba diving (activities at own expense).

Then re-board the boat and cruise back along the coast, stopping briefly on the island of Li Galli. Arrive back in Sorrento or Castellammare di Stabia in the early evening.

unfortunately we weren't able to make the tour. I am sure it would have been wonderful. Viator has proven to be excellent always.Thanks

Trip to Sorrento was excellent, hotel was very good, day trip by boat Sorrento to Amalfi Coast via Capri and back was excellent.

However, there was a sad case of stolen wallet on the local train Napoli to Sorrento. I was totally devastated after waiting for such a long time for my Italy trip. I had my son and wife with me who helped out and we informed Bank in USA to stop the cards.

this was really enjoyable and much cheaper than some of the tours available on the marina in sorrento- we did well to book it before we left on the internet! the boat was a little less crowded than some of the others.

This tour was amazing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our boat trip. We got off in Positano having previously gone to Amalfi by bus. We really enjoyed wandering around Positano in preference to Amalfi. The shops were nicer although prices higher! Great value Italian ice cream parlour available right by boat. Also pharmacy nearby to get drinks at minimal cost. We didn't do any swimming at Capri but it was interesting to spend time in the bay. Enjoyed the commentary and music on way back. Toilets best visited whilst the boat was stationery. All in all good value for money better than the bus ride.

We REALLY enjoyed this cruise. My husband, 22 yr old daughter and I had a good time.. It was relaxing and scenic. Highlight of the trip was swimming at the white grotto! The crew gave us plenty of time to enjoy the water. Positano was amazing! If I had to do it again, I would do the trip to both Positano and Amalfi. I realized after the fact that I should have booked the gold cruise instead of the blue cruise. I saw a flyer on the boat. I would have done this instead of having the lunch, on board. The food was not bad but we did not enjoy it. Not sure if Viator offers the cruise to both towns.
