Full description
In the morning you will either be picked up from your hotel in the Sorrento area, or will make your own way to the Marina Lobra port in Massa Lubrense. Board your comfortable boat that accommodates up to 12 people and start cruising along the Sorrento coastline. Admire views of the Marciano Waterfall, before heading out to sea and towards the Island of Capri. If you select the early morning option including the Blue Grotto, you will arrive there right as it opens, avoiding the long queues. Board a small rowboat to marvel at the intense blue color of this unique sea cave, formed over thousands of years by erosion. Next, circumnavigate Capri to admire the dramatic coastal scenery of the island. See the White Grotto, the Green Grotto, the Faraglioni rocks, a natural arch, and the lighthouse of Punta Carena. Your guide will explain the wonders of Capri and its surroundings as you go. The boat will make stops at 2 different coves to go snorkeling and admire the rich marine life of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Enjoy a light lunch consisting of a Caprese sandwich or salad and your choice of drinks. The boat will then drop you off on Capri, where you will have 4 hours to discover this beautiful island at your own pace. You could do some shopping and have a drink in the charming town, or take the chairlift to the top of Mount Solaro and hike back down. Meet back at the boat and start the return journey back to the port. En route, enjoy a tasting of Limoncello, the traditional Neapolitan liqueur. Your trip will end either at the port in Massa Lubrense, or with a drop-off at your hotel, depending on the option selected.

    Our driver picked us up on time at our hotel to take us to the port. Our tour guide and captain were so friendly and passionate about their jobs! It was a fantastic trip from beginning to end. I’ve used GetYourGuide in Greece and Italy for multiple excursions and have always thoroughly enjoyed it! Highly recommend this trip to Capri from Sorrento if you’re looking!!

    The trip was so much fun and the guide was very knowledgeable about the whole area. She took the time to explain everything we could see on the coast while being super friendly! The spots we visited were amazing themselves and we got there at a great time where there wasn’t a lot of people yet. A really fun day out and would 10/10 recommend to everyone!!!

    It was a pleasant walk, especially in the morning, as it was not so hot, the view from the sea to the island is simply fantastic. Despite a slightly scary entrance and exit to the blue grotto I loved hearing the gentlemen all singing inside with that blue background of the water and the passage under the Faraglioni rock was the most exciting part.
