What To Expect

Meet your skipper at the Positano port and hop aboard your boat with your small group. Sit back and relax as you take off along the water, passing white sand beaches, dramatic cliffs, and scenic fishing villages.

Travel through the sparkling waters of Conca dei Marini and opt to stop at the Emerald Grotto (own expense), a famous sea cave where stalactites hang from the ceiling, stalagmites sprout from the cave floor and the waters give off a rare green hue.

Glide by the whitewashed houses of Praiano, a fishing village set into the cliffs. Continue past the Furore fjord, turning into a narrow cove not accessible by land. Pause for a refreshing swim inside the hidden caves and dip into a cascade of fresh spring water.

Afterward, dock in Amalfi to spend a few hours exploring independently. Relax with a fresh seafood lunch at your own expense, before checking out the 11th-century cathedral, the bustling harbor or the local shops. As an alternative to Amalfi, take the bus up to the resort town of Ravello for spectacular views of the coast below.

After sightseeing at your leisure, reunite with your group on the boat. If time allows, continue past Maiori for one last swim in a secluded cave.

Your full-day cruise concludes back at your original departure point.

Great value, semiprivate tour with great tour guide
Donna_B, May 2022
Seeing Amalfi from the ocean , swimming, our guide Sandro and the views. Great value, small group of 12. Having an option of 3 hours In Amalfi or a restaurant beach time . Sandro spoke good English which helped with telling us about the coast. Didn’t stop at emerald grotto as it would maybe take too long so you would have been disappointed if that was why y went
Great value! 👍🏻 For Luigi
Sydney_F, May 2022
Luigi was an awesome guide, and the tour was a magnificent way to see all the little towns around the Amalfi coast. We enjoyed meeting other people on our tour, and loved the beach restaurant option before heading back to Positano.
Super fun for small groups or couples
Christine_H, May 2022
Had a great time. Great skipper. Very knowledgeable. Super helpful. It was a great day on the boat. Super fun at dining place. Swimming was fun. 😃
Wonderful boat tour and day in Amalfi!
Kelsey_N, May 2022
Great time on the Amalfi Coast! We started in Positano and left mid morning. We then went by boat to Amalfi. Our guide pointed out different hotels and landmarks as we went there. After arriving in Amalfi we were give free time to explore the city and grab lunch. This was a great time to grab souvenirs as there are lots of great leather shops around if you wanted to buy bags, belts, etc. Amalfi also has a beautiful cathedral we were able to go to. On the way back to Positano we were able to have some drinks and swim - although the water was a little chilly! Overall wonderful, fun day!
Perfect day with perfect people!
Hannah_M, May 2022
This was, by far, worth every penny! From the boat itself, to our interactions with the captain and other passengers, everything was fantastic! Sandro (our captain)told us everything you’d like to know about things on the coast line! Our day was perfect! (We were given the option to do 3 hours in amalfi or 1 hour in amalfi and then go to a coastal restaurant for lunch, only access able by boat. We chose 3 hours in amalfi and although it was lovely and had tons of tourist things, we kind of wish we had tried the restaurant for lunch!) Could not recommend this excursion enough!
Awesome boat trip and guide
Ben_T, Apr 2022
We had an amazing time, Sandro was the best guide and was really accomodating and friendly. Lots of information as we went down the coast and let us completely control what we wanted to do individually , with options to stay in amalfi tor 3 hours or 1 hour and go to a restaurant only accessible by boat. He made the experience even better, the scenery was beautiful and it was well worth the trip. Would definitely recommend, thanks Sandro!!
AMAZING trip!!
Elinor_K, Apr 2022
This trip was incredible! We had a group of 8 friends and went on this day tour in early April and had an amazing experience, our captain Sandro was so welcoming and knowledgeable and gave us the most fun experience ever. We highly recommend this tour you will not regret it!!

This was awesome! The weather forecast was not good the day we scheduled but the they accommodated our schedule and made sure we were still able to get a boat tour. I heard a lot of people say you cannot go to the Amalfi coast without doing a boat tour, and they were right! The views are unbelievable and it’s a must! Highly recommended this tour. It was about 3 1/2 hours and we had some time in amalfi city.

Mario was the best guide who gave us the ultimate experience and our favourite day in Positano/Amalfi! Thank you so much, we will remember it🤩

Really nice 👌
Eugnie_B, Jul 2021
Visiting the Amalfi coast from Positano was the best idea. You have more time in Amalfi (3h) and you don't come back late and can enjoy more Positano if you are not staying there. Mario was super friendly and is good at story telling. There was a nice atmosphere.

Isabelle_P, Jul 2021
this is a great tour and not too expensive. We were 6 people. hermes our capitain was great. We had the freedom to decide if we wanted to stay 3 hours in Amalfi or 1 hour and go elsewhere. We swam in the ocean. A very nice day!
Fantastic day out!
Jennifer_G, Jul 2021
Had a fantastic trip with Sandro this week. He made sure to point out the sights, helped take pictures, offered drinks and sweets at the end of the day. He made every effort to make his guests comfortable. We had a really great day swimming and taking in the sights. I'm so glad I spent the day with Sergio on the boat tour!

A perfect day tour to Amalfi coast
DOHA_Y, Jun 2021
The guide- Marco was so kind&nice and provided all the information we need! If you stay at Positano and want to swim in the ocean(even in a cave) and visit Amalfi for a day, I highly recommend this tour!
Definitely would recommend!
KitChong_N, Aug 2020
Amazing tour - 100% would do it again! Our tour guide was great fun, and also Elizabeth from BlueStar was extremely helpful when we were late for our ferry back to Salerno - she managed to get us on another ferry for free and made sure that we got on safe. They also gave us a little souvenir from Positano because there was a slight delay for our return - absolutely delightful. Thank you everyone for the excellent tour and service. Hope to see you soon!
Made my holiday this boat trip!
Lee_C, Aug 2020

A Must Do!
angeladsharp, Oct 2019
Fabio was our wonderful and knowledgeable skipper. To say the Amalfi Coast is breathtakingly beautiful is an understatement. Bellisimo! We went to Amafi, a grotto, and swam in the sea! A Must do!

Wonderful Day Trip
Scott_E, Sep 2019
This was a fantastic day trip with an absolutely wonderful boat captain (Saulo?). He was entertaining, informative, helpful, accommodating, and just an all around joy to have on the trip.
Amazing day along the coast
Megan B, Aug 2019
Fabio and Sky took us from positano to Amalfi and all along the coast. Best part is getting to stop along the way to swim in the ocean and explore some caves. Fabio and Sky were super friendly and accommodating. On the way back they cranked the music and we hit some waves which was so much fun! You can tell they alter the tour to suit the group. Great price for a fabulous day on the water. Wish we would have booked another day!
