Enjoy a full day at sea on a private boat tour from Positano. Climb aboard a leisure boat built for comfort and choose how you spend your time on the water. Head south along the Amalfi Coast or cross the Tyrrhenian Sea to the island of Capri the choice is yours. If you choose to visit Capri, the captain will cruise north from Positano, passing Nerano, famous for its blue flag beaches. Stop for a refreshing swim. Continue to Punto Campanella, where the Amalfi Coast and Sorrento Coast meet. Then, cross the Bay of Naples and enjoy views of Vesuvius. Upon arrival in Capri, circumnavigate the entire island, stopping at the Blue, White, and Green Grotto. See the private villas of the rich and famous, along with Casa Malaparte and the historic lighthouse.

Cruise past Marina Piccola to sail through the rock formations of Faraglioni. Choose to enjoy the island from the boat or dock for some free time on land. If wanting to explore the Amalfi Coast, head south from Positano and enjoy some of the most beautiful views in the world.

Stop to swim in the lagoons and caves that line the rugged coastline, or find an empty beach to laze on. Pass the beautiful fishing village of Praiano where century-old traditions are still maintained. Go to the hidden lagoon of the fjord of Furore. Every year a diving competition is held on the bridge above the fjord. Continue to Conca dei Marini to sail under Sophia Loren's former villa. Get an up-close view of the beachside apartment where Jackie Kennedy spent her Amalfi Coast vacation. Stop in bustling Amalfi for a chance to stretch your legs and get some lunch. Then, go to Atrani, Italy’s smallest village. You can also visit the enchanting villages of Ravello and Marmorata to see a waterfall that once powered an old paper mill.

This experience is probably the highlight of our entire 2-week trip across Italy. Luigi, our boat captain, was simply amazing. There is no way you will not absolutely love spending the day on this activity and with Luigi. There were 4 of us, and still the memories just make us smile and wish we were back on the boat!! We had great drinks, great times, learned a lot about the area, and felt so welcomed and not simply "just more tourists" for the day.

This was the best thing we did in Positano!!! Our skipper, Umberto, was fantastic and took us all along the Amalfi coast stopping to let us swim in little caves along the way. We stopped for a delicious lunch at a restaurant on the beach that was only accessible by boat. He took pictures for us and was very fun but also professional. I would highly recommend this if you can pay extra for a private boat to escape the tourists for a day and see the Amalfi coast from the best perspective -- on the water!

Everything well organized. The boat was nice and the experience great. We were able to see the amalfitana coast from the sea. Gianpiero was very nice. He stopped two times so that we were able to swim near nice beaches. He also made a reservation and we could have lunch in a nice good restaurant on the beach at Conca dei Marini.
