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 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.

We had a very enjoyable time on our tour. The seas were a little rough so we skipped the Blue Grotto and the first swimming stop. We were able to enjoy our free time on Capri then had a longer swimming stop in the afternoon. The communication prior to our tour could have been better. We were staying outside of Sorrento and had a rental car so we opted to meet at the Marina but we weren't told which Marina until we asked the evening before. There was ample parking but the roads there were very tight. If we did it again we would park in Sorrento and use their transfer. Our guide, Italo, was very knowledgeable and had great energy. We enjoyed his commentary on the different points of interest and appreciated his tips on how to get around and things to see on the island. Both he and our skipper, Salvatore, went out of their way to accommodate all passengers and make us comfortable on the boat. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Capri for the first time.

*Exceptional* day out! Everyone from Lubrense Boats really communicative, the whole pick-up, day’s organisation and drop off was seamless and and the whole team were hugely accommodating. One of the best tours ever - you felt like you got to see everything on the island from the boat and in a small group.

Our guide picked us up from the hotel and drove us the marina. Our boat was super nice, a good size for 12 or less. We circled Capri and got a history lesson of this region as we sailed. We stopped to swim in a beautiful cove and had some beers/drinks while we continued to circle Capri. We were given caprese a sandwiches as we docked at Carpri. We toured the island for 4 hours on our own and were picked up in the afternoon. We continued to sail around the island with picture stops at the famous arch and other important sites on the other side. We ended with a limoncello as wr pulled into port. Couldn’t have asked for nicer people as guides and better weather! If you are seasick, sit near the front or face forward!
