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.

Really enjoying experience if your looking for something to do during the day. It’s a must to go into the blue grotto inside is really a sight to see! Then capri is a great town to go wonder around in for a few hours!! We had a great captain Hakuna Matata. He show us everything you can we saw the whole island of Sorrento by boat and we got to go to some great swim spots. This tour is one of the best ones I’ve experience.

This was one of the most enjoyable things we did while in Italy! The experience was perfect , the captian always asking what else he could get us or do for us, the boat was beautiful!! I wouldn’t think twice about doing a tour with MBS again! We had a phenomenal time!

Highly recommend this tour. Seeing Capri and swimming in the crystal clear water was the highlight of our trip. Sebastiano (our guide) was very intent on making our day as perfect as possible. Worth noting that you get a few hours on Capri, and the boat tour around the island is a complete tour in itself after getting back to the boat. A few in our group wanted to go back to the boat (from touring the hot and expensive Capri) and Sebastiano accommodated us perfectly and made sure that we were all having the best time possible. For us, the blue grotto was closed because of the swell but we had a couple of perfect swims, including in a beautiful grotto (green grotto from memory) which was spectacular. Beers were available throughout the day and Prosecco with lunch. Masks and snorkels were available for our swims as well. Highly recommend!
