Had a lovely day on this boat trip! The team who ran our trip were lovely, left us alone for the most part to enjoy ourselves but would give us local history or information when we passed interesting locations. A great way to visit the nearby towns of Amalfi and Positano while also enjoying a day on the water.

We loved the Amalfiana Coast. The boat was perfect and the amount of people on the boats as well. Our capitan Giuseppe and tour Rafaello were very nice, polite and great hosts. We enjoyed swimming and the waterfall beside the amazing Pasitano and Amalfi.

Activity was worth doing! There were other tours that were cheaper but on the day it proved to be better than all the others. The. Boat was much nicer, small groups and excellent tour guide made for the best experience!
