We had a fantastic day on the Boat leaving from Sorrento and heading around the Amalfi coast to Positano. We finished off the day by heading to Capri. All in all a great day messing about on a boat. Sebastian the captain was very knowledgable and organised a very nice lunch for us in Positano too. The boat was great and really spacious for us 4 - you could easily fit 10 people on it I would think. It had a canopy to protect us all from the midday sun and a diving platform off the back which the kids loved. A great experience
This was a highlight of our trip and a wonderful experience overall! There were seven of us: two seniors, two mid-40s, and three teens, and we all loved it! We spent the morning going down the Amalfi Coast to Positano, we stopped to swim, went ashore for lunch along the coast, and then saw Capri in the afternoon. It was all breath-taking.
Pros: the boat was amazing, very nice and luxurious, with tons of room to sit or all stretch out and sunbathe, and it was well-stocked with plenty of drinks, including water, beer, and champagne. The driver was very very friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating, telling us about the area and willing to follow whatever schedule we wanted and go wherever we wanted and helping us with lunch reservations. He also let the guys drive the boat in the afternoon.
Cons: there were only two snorkel sets on board for the seven of us, but the driver shared his personal gear too.
Unknown: the boat had a bathroom, but we didn't use it, and it was supposed to have snacks but the driver never offered snacks and we didn't ask for any.
One other thing to note -- we stopped to swim and snorkel in a beautiful spot with a relatively secluded beach. There were other people swimming and snorkeling, but not an overwhelming number. However, my daughter was stung by a jellyfish while snorkeling, but the driver handled it perfectly. He immediately realized what had happened, rinsed it with hot water, applied medicine, and checked on her repeatedly for the rest of the day and re-applied medicine until it was clear she was fine and her arm looked normal again. In the end, we thought the driver handled the entire incident excellently and were very impressed.
