The full day boat trip was a highlight of our experience along the Amalfi coast! Transportation by van to Sorrento was on time, and the driver professional. We toured around the entire island by boat, with the highlight of swimming in the beautiful water near one of the grottos. We also enjoyed our free on the island to explore. It is a long day due to the drive from Positano to Sorrento. I would recommend trying to find the same trip out of Positano if possible. They book up fast, and were sold out by the time we were looking.

We had a wonderful day on the boat and at Capri. Our transportation from Positano to Sorrento was on-time and excellent; the boat captains told us all about the area, took us swimming, and served plenty of drinks, snacks, and sandwiches; and we had a good time exploring around Capri (recommend taking the gondola to the top and/or having a plan for what you want to do on Capri before you get there). As others noted, we would have liked more time on the boat and a little less time on Capri but all-in-all it was a really fun day (if you are in Positano, just a note that we did not arrive back to our Airbnb until about 1945).

The trip was amazing, our boat driver Luke was super helpful with recommendations for things to see in Capri and Ana Capri. The boat staff were friendly and generous with drinks and snacks. We got to enjoy swimming by two caves and spend sufficient time on the island. Highly recommended
