What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Amalfi Coast and Capri Cruise

Spend the day exploring the Amalfi Coast aboard a traditional Italian wooden boat

Meet your private captain in Amalfi, Praiano or Positano and step aboard your classic Italian gozzo or stylish speedboat, depending on your selection.

Take off along the stunning Amalfi Coast, passing the private islands and natural reserve of Li Galli, and soaking up panoramic views of Capri and Positano. Travel through the arch of one of the Faraglioni rock formations and see the chic town of Amalfi.

Journey past a small, turquoise fjord near Furore, where the Italian film Amore was shot. Then, coast past the notable San Pietro Hotel and see the fishing villages of Nerano and Praiano.

Stop below the former villa of actress Sophia Loren or along one of the beaches when you're ready for a refreshing swim. Afterward, cruise around the island of Capri, pausing in small coves and lagoons for a quick dip. You'll also see the rock formations up close and learn the history behind island from your captain.

Pass the White Grotto, a natural rock formation in the shape of the Virgin Mary; swim under the arc of the Green Grotto; and explore the impressive Blue Grotto, once the private bath house of Roman Emperor Tiberius, hopping off to visit if you wish (own expense).

Top off the trip with some free time on the island of Capri. Relax with lunch at a local café, walk through the gardens of Villa San Michele, take in the views from Mt Solaro or have a drink at chic Hotel Quisisana.

After some leisure time, reunite with your captain and travel back along the coast, returning to your original departure point in the evening.

This tour was amazing!

This was one of the best parts of our trip. Captain Giovanni was amazing. We ended up doing a tour of the coast instead of Capri, which I was glad we picked the Blue Grotto was apparently closed that day. The Speedboat was spacious and relaxing and Giovanni brought us to a lunch spot on the cliff that is very hard to get to by land slightly west of Amalfi. Over the course of the trip we got to swim three separate times including swimming in caves and a secluded beach that is not reachable by land. Giovanni had beer and Proseco on board and was also a great photographer. It was also extremely convenient considering he was able to pick us up and drop us off right at the dock at our hotel. Cost comparison against private boat rentals in the area and offered by the hotel had this one at the best value. I would not have done it any different and I highly recommend this Tour.

This excursion is a must do! Seeing the Amalfi Coast from a boat is the only way to go! So beautiful and our tour guide was flexible and let us decide what we did and where we went.

This was an amazing day and our tour guide was awesome! Worth every cent and more because the experience was simply out of the ordinary - something we could never go elsewhere. The grottos, the sights, the history and a great lunch at La Tournnella made for an extraordinary day!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

This was the highlight of our holiday - all 4 of our kids thought it was the best day of the entire holiday and we had a wonderful holiday!.
The boat 38 ft speed boat was gorgeous and our guide was lovely - just the right balance between informative but not intrusive. We stopped at a beach restaurant that was one of the best meals I have ever had. Plenty of opportunities to swim off the boat, snorkel, swim in grottos, visit deserted beaches accessible only by boat and see the beautiful amalfi coast from the water, while relaxing and sunbathing on the boat. The whole day was great! Expensive but worth it!!

The tour along the Amalfi Coast was the highlight of our family's trip in Italy. Our captain was extremely accommodating and he took us into some amazing coves and caves. He also took us to a great restaurant on the coast. This is an absolute must when visiting Positano!

Thank you Ivan for an absolutely wonderful day!! Viator Valeria was very responsive with the booking and logistics and Ivan picked us up in the beautiful boat on time and we cruised around the Amalfi Coast - including Capri, the Blue Grotto although lines were too long to enter, the Green Grotto, etc..for 8 hours. There were only 4 of us on the boat which was perfect. It was truly a highlight of our trip!!

WOW. First off-- this is worth every penny. Valeria got in touch with us the day before to confirm details and make sure we knew where to go and that we had all the information. We were picked up from the Amalfi dock by Ivan. He was so warm and accommodating right away and made sure we were comfortable. He gave us two options of Itineraries for the day and we decided to do the Capri option. Not only did we get to see amazing sights but we didn't have to deal with a crowded tour boat. We went around the Island of Capri, stopped to check out the Grotto Azura and after he took us to another less crowded Grotto called the green cave where we could jump off the boat and swim through to the other side. Halfway through the day Valeria called to make sure we were enjoying our time and everything was ok. It was so sweet of her to check in.

After swimming he recommended a cute restaurant for lunch and picked us up when we were done followed by more swimming and enjoying the beautiful views. This was definitely the highlight of our trip and I can't wait for another opportunity to do it again!

Thanks Valeria and Ivan!

The private tour of the Amalfi Coast and Capri was AMAZING! It was truly one of the highlights of our trip to Positano. Carmine was an outstanding captain. His knowledge of the area and his skills with the boat made the trip exceptional. I would highly recommend this activity to anyone who's looking for an up close tour of the Amalfi coast. Thanks so much for providing a once in a lifetime experience. Grazie!

This was an incredible tour! By far the best thing we did while on the Amalfi coast. Evan, our guide, was wonderful! He had a lot of information about the coast and took us around not only to Capri, but also some small fishing villages along the way. We even got to stop for lunch per his recommendation and the BEST restaurant. It is definitely worth the price to have a small private boat for the day. We would absolutely do this again!!
