Full description

Marvel at the iconic Blue Grotto, one of the most famous attractions of the beautiful island of Capri, on a boat cruise departing from Sorrento. Visit the sea cave from a small rowboat before boarding back on a bigger boat to cruise around the whole island. Swim or snorkel in the blue waters and visit Capri at your own pace. Reach the Blue Grotto, the first stop of your tour early in the morning. Enter the cave aboard a small rowing boat to see it up close and personally. This unique sea cave, formed over the millennia by the erosive action of the sea, owes its name and its beauty to the intense blue color of the crystalline water. In Roman times it was used as a marine nymphaeum.

Continue your day of adventure with a tour of the whole island. You'll see the Faraglioni, the White Grotto, the Green Grotto, and the Lighthouse of Punta Carena. Stop for a swim or a snorkel in the clear waters, and enjoy free time to visit the famous center of Capri, a city rich in archaeological and natural treasures.

We had an exceptional day! Although Sergio, our captain got us to the Blue Grotto and we’ were first in line, we, unfortunately, did not get to see it because the tide was too high. The rest of the day was exceptional! Capri is stunning and Sergio organized the day in such a fashion to avoid the crowds as much as possible!!!! We would HIGHLY recommend this trip!!!

The concept of this boat tour is great, however the execution needs a bit more attention. From the beginning the staff seemed frazzled and our boat guide and captain weren’t super friendly and didn’t introduce themselves. It was also very hard to hear our guide as she didnt have a mic and seemed a bit annoyed to be there. When we were dropped off at Capri it was kinda just like “good luck figure it out”. In the afternoon i don’t know what changed but our boat guide was super friendly all of a sudden and turned it more into a booze cruise, which was great, but kinda confusing. Everything felt a bit rushed even though the tour lasted most of the day. Overall it was a fun experience but idk if I’d dish out the $ to do it again.

A wonderful trip to Capri on a quality boat. Our captain/host was very smart arriving at the Grotto before any other boats, which saved us a good 1-2 hours waiting in the queue unlike those boats behind us. The tour around the whole island was such fun as he took us up close and personal to many of the caves. We then had a great time anchored up and swimming in the most beautiful of waters.
