This absolutely was the highlight of our week in Sorrento. Firstly, the boat used (a Fratelli jet boat I believe) was immaculate, seemingly brand new and it’s cool design gave no clue as to just how fast it was. Slow cruise outbound with stops to explore places of interest, swim, drink Prosecco and set up many photo opportunities. The guys even reversed the boat into a waterfall for braver passengers to get under! A few hours to explore Capri, it’s treasures and eateries, then a flat-out wind-(and spray)-in-the-hair blast back to Sorrento in the dark, which was simply brilliant. Our 2-man crew were great fun, friendly and made the experience simply the best.

Fantastic company (Captain Ago) - lovely trip with great crew, time on Capri, swimming in the sea on way back and we were greeted with Prosecco as we got back on the boat! We went on 2 trips with them and would highly recommend

Amazing and fun trip. Helpful guide, even explains how you can get around the island easy and with plenty of time. Also sandwiches were amazing .

Small group, and the guides were right in the middle of things. They spoke perfect English, and got us right where we needed to be.

Awesome boat tour around both islands with a little bit of time on each to explore, see some key sights and get a bite to eat
