What a great day! Even though we couldn't enter the blue grotto due to high tide, we were not disappointed. Dario was amazing and this day will go down as a life highlight, especially the memory of swimming in one of Capri's other amazing grottos.
We went through every boat excursion from Sorrento to Capris and this was our family choice with getting in the blue grotto without waiting for hours at the top of our priority list .
Our captain , Dario (?sp?) was funny, knowledgeable, and a fantastic captain. We got in the blue grotto quickly, waiting only 15-20 minutes . We also went swimming at two different areas and stopped at all the breathtaking spots along the way . The boat was a beautiful, classic Italian wood boat and very clean. Having the free time in Capris was an adventure and only wished we planned it out better so we could have taken advantage of as much as possible in the few hours of free time we had. All said, great day and great experience. Highly recommended.
Rather rainy and drizzly for the first several days in Italy then the sun broke through just as we were boarding with Pasquale and Vincenzo. Very nice boat ride with lots of informative commentary by Pasquale. Unfortunately, wind and water conditions kept Blue Grotto closed but we tied up in Piccola Marina and took a cab to Capri for sightseeing and lunch. Several of our fellow travelers sunbathed on the forward deck on an even smoother boat ride back to Sorrento. Sorry we missed the Blue Grotto but glad we rode with the guys from MBS Blu Charter.
