Full description

In the morning you will either be picked up from your hotel in the Sorrento area, or will make your own way to the Marina Lobra port in Massa Lubrense. Board your comfortable boat that accommodates up to 12 people and start cruising along the Sorrento coastline.

Admire views of the Marciano Waterfall, before heading out to sea and towards the Island of Capri. If you select the early morning option including the Blue Grotto, you will arrive there right as it opens, avoiding the long queues.

Board a small rowboat to marvel at the intense blue color of this unique sea cave, formed over thousands of years by erosion. Next, circumnavigate Capri to admire the dramatic coastal scenery of the island.

See the White Grotto, the Green Grotto, the Faraglioni rocks, a natural arch, and the lighthouse of Punta Carena. Your guide will explain the wonders of Capri and its surroundings as you go.

The boat will make stops at 2 different coves to go snorkeling and admire the rich marine life of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Enjoy a light lunch consisting of a Caprese sandwich or salad and your choice of drinks.

The boat will then drop you off on Capri, where you will have 4 hours to discover this beautiful island at your own pace. You could do some shopping and have a drink in the charming town, or take the chairlift to the top of Mount Solaro and hike back down. Meet back at the boat and start the return journey back to the port. En route, enjoy a tasting of Limoncello, the traditional Neapolitan liqueur. Your trip will end either at the port in Massa Lubrense, or with a drop-off at your hotel, depending on the option selected.

Really great tour. The boat was comfortable and spacious, and the tour guides were informative and interactive, and great driving the boat. Showed us all the highlights of Capri, suggestions for what to do on the island during free time, as well as making sure we had a great experience. We were lucky to be able to go into the Blue Grotto on our tour, which they took as to right off the start since the water was not too rough. Definitely recommend if you are hoping to experience Capri!

Guide was fantastic. Made the trip thoroughly enjoyable. Very well presented, made a few jokes and kept us all engaged. Unfortunately we were unable to go in the blue grotto due to poor weather but that didn’t take away from how fantastic the rest of the tour was. We had 4 hours in Capri and before we got off the boat the guide gave us a map and suggested some places to visit which was very helpful as I have heard with other tours they just dock the boat and leave you with no clue. Mozzarella and tomatoe sandwich was also very nice!! Stopped for a swim twice which was lovely. We were also given bottles of beer and soft drinks when we wanted them. The captains mum makes home made limoncello and we were all given some to try before we got off the boat. Overall thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would definitely recommend this tour if you are going to Capri! There are so many options available online I’m so glad we went with this one!

Capri is gorgeous, and the boat tour was a great way to see the highlights of the island from the water and swim in the Mediterranean. Included a perfect amount of time to explore the island on our own as well. Would suggest skipping the optional Blue Grotto tour. Overall, easily one of the highlights of our entire Italy trip.
