Morning Pickup From Your Hotel

Cruise to Capri

Sit back and relax as the boat cruises along the coast of the Bay of Naples. 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 tour 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.

The Blue Grotto and Capri's Famous Caves

One of the highlights of Capri is the abundance of beautiful natural caves along the coast, locally known as "grottos." As you sail around the island, you'll stop to visit the Marvelous Grotto, White Grotto, and Green Grotto, before heading to the most famous of them all...

The exclusive Blue Grotto is a true world wonder. With natural light shining through at the perfect angle, the reflection onto the pure blue waters illuminates the entire cave in a stunning hue of royal blue.

Tourist numbers are tightly controlled here, so tickets are required to hop on one of the approved rowboats that enter the Blue Grotto. Just make sure to bring the €14 entry fee in cash for each person in your group and enjoy a dazzling ride through this one-of-a-kind cultural site.

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 past, pizza and seafood for lunch, and you can stroll through the cobblestone streets to your heart's content.

You may decide to 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.

A Day of Swimming, Snorkeling, and Relaxation

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

Upon returning to Sorrento, our driver will be ready to take you back to your hotel after a full day of exploring Capri. Ciao!

Family of 6 including one 10 month old. We were picked up in front of our Airbnb. Taken to the marina by private bus with other passengers. At the marina we met Nicola our captain who took us out on his boat. It was very nice. Clean and Nicola packed water, beer, wine, Prosecco and some food for us to eat. Nicola was very funny. Knowledgeable about the different locations we passed by. The weather wasn’t good but we reached Capri walked around the island. Visited the main areas. It was beautiful. We Left the island at 1. Nicola took us around the island and we swam by the “Grotta Rossa”. Water was absolutely beautiful. Bring snorkel gear if you have it. Then went in through Faraglioni di Mezzo. Then finally floated around to the south of Marina Piccola where we enjoyed the views of Capri. Tons of pictures. Tons of video. Great memories. On the way back Nicola was kind enough to drop us off at our marina which is in front of our Airbnb. The whole trip was amazing. Nicola was absolutely the best boat captain we could ask for. Truly just a great person. Took care of us in every way. I Can’t say enough good things about him. Grazie mille.
