Morning Pickup from Amalfi

Your day begins at an easy meeting point in central Amalfi. Hop into a comfortable van where you'll drive along the Amalfi Coast to the Port of Sorrento, where your boat will be waiting along with your English-speaking trip leader and skipper. This is where you can purchase snorkeling equipment if you don't have your own.

The boat holds a maximum of 12 people—a wonderful small group to explore Capri and the coast. As you pull out of the marina, take in the amazing views of Sorrento and the surrounding cliffs before turning your eyes to Capri.

Cruise to Capri

Sit back and relax as the boat cruises along the coast of the Bay of Naples with Mount Vesuvius in the distance. As Sorrento disappears from view, you'll approach the eye-catching island of Capri—known as one of Italy's most luxurious destinations.

One of your first views will be the ruins of Tiberius' Imperial Palace. The second emperor in Roman history lived in Capri during the tumultuous days of his reign. Your trip leader will tell the story of how the Roman Empire almost collapsed just a few years into Tiberius' rule.

You'll continue to Marina Grande, the main fishing village of the island, where tiny fishing boats and bright houses give off the warm local energy that made Capri famous. You'll be returning to Capri later on to explore at your own pace, and your local crew will have plenty of recommendations to offer.

Capri's Famous Caves

Before docking, you'll sail around the island to see more of the stunning coastline. With stops to swim or snorkel in the warm Mediterranean Sea, you'll cruise through the three of Capri's stunning grottoes (sea caves). Take in the serenity of the Green, White, and Marvelous Grottoes before returning to Marina Grande to disembark.

This tour doesn't stop at the famous Blue Grotto due to long waiting times and boat restrictions, but you can visit during your free time in Capri if you'd like to. Tickets are required to hop on one of the approved rowboats that enter the Blue Grotto, so just make sure to bring the €14 entry fee in cash for each person in your group and enjoy a dazzling ride through this incredible cave.

Explore the Island of Capri

Arriving back in Marina Grande, your boat will dock in the marina and you'll have a few hours to take in this charming little island at your own pace. Your crew will be happy to tell you where to get the best pasta, pizza, and seafood for lunch, and you can stroll through the cobblestone streets to your heart's content.

You might decide to visit the Blue Grotto, take the funicular (tram) through the lemon groves to Capri Town where you'll find most of the designer shops, or you can simply take a walk and find one on the many incredible viewpoints on the island. After a few hours of free time, head back onto the boat for the final stretch of your day at sea.

Swimming, Snorkeling, and Relaxation

Throughout the day, there will be plenty of chances to jump in the warm Mediterranean waters for a swim, or you can choose to snorkel and explore the reefs and caves. (Bring your own snorkel gear or purchase onsite.) With beer, wine, soft drinks, and maybe even some local limoncello included on board, enjoy a relaxing cruise in one of Europe's most beautiful settings.

This day trip to Capri from Amalfi is sure to be a dreamy memory from your Italian vacation. Once the boat returns to Sorrento, a car will be waiting to bring you back to Amalfi. Ciao!

It was such a great experience!!! We loved visit Capri and mostly spend the day around Sorrento and Capri coasts with the boat, specially with Francesca and Matia, they have been a very very very nice guide tour and skipper. Definitely, this tour wouldn't have been the same without them. They are so funny and kind!

Great Day at Sea!

This was the highlight of our vacation. It was just our family and a couple from North Carolina. We felt like VIPs as they gave us delicious wine and snacks throughout the day. The pickup location was just a two-minute walk from our Airbnb so it worked out perfectly. We really enjoyed taking the boat through the caves.
