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 got picked up from our hotel and had a fun ride down to the dock (about 20 min.). Our driver, Lorenzo, played fun music and got us singing and chatting. The boat left straight for the island of Capri, but we circled it first, stopping once for swimming (which was amazing), and landed at the far side of the island at Marina Piccola di Capri. It was a pretty nice, small town. Lots of shopping and restaurants. We hung out there for just over 4 hours, then were picked up to continue our trip around the island, stopping for another swim. Our boat captain, Antonio, and guide, Federico, were lots of fun and passed on some great information along the way. Drinks were provided onboard, to include beer, sodas, and water. Once we returned to the mainland, we got a ride back to our hotel!

It was the best experience ever. The island of capri is so beautiful but if you don't go with the boat to a tour of the island you miss 80% of its beauty. With this boat, in which the guide was kind polite helpful and funny, we were swiming, snorkeling we saw the coast of capri and anacapri, we visited grotto's and of course we went to the rocks of capri. I totally recommended 100%

Everything was extremely well organized and we had a great time. It was our highlight of visiting Italy! Pick up from hotel arrived right on time, we got straight on the boat and set sail. Our captan was an amazing driver and our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. They made the experience top tier. We had a smooth ride into capri, stopping twice for a swim. Be mindful that the stops are just off the coast and the water is very deep so might not be good for those that are anxious about deep water. They provided pool noodles to help float but it wasn’t really snorkeling appropriate. The time in the island felt short but we saw what we wanted to see. The food and drinks provided were great. Overall really happy with this experience and would recommend it to everyone!
