Full description
A full day boat tour from Positano or a neighboring port (Nerano or Praiano). You will have a first hand look of the beautiful Amalfi Coast. This is a great opportunity to discover the seaside villages with time to stop and swim off of the boat in various coves and bays.  Are you interested in visiting a village on land for some free time? The captain will drop you off and wait for you at the port. When you are ready, simply meet him back at the boat.  See crumbling Norman towers dating back from the 13th century mixed with modern day luxury hotels and villas.  Your captain will take you to Li Galli private islands, where the Jet Set prefer to stay for a private hideaway vacation. Swim in the sea by the islands and bask in the Mediterranean sunshine.  The best part about this excursion? The captain is a local of the area which means that he will show you the true beauty of the Amalfi Coast without the long lines, traffic and noise.  Pass Atrani, the smallest village in Italy and head to Marmorata, where a waterfall flows into the sea. The quaint seaside village of Minori will come next, full of colorful beach umbrellas and Italian men fishing off of the pier. Finally you will reach Maiori, a busy tourist town. Your captain will take you to Pandora's grotto, a cave accessible only by boat. Here, see sea fossils and ancient stalagtites.  Save room for lunch. This is a culinary paradise of Italy and there are many seaside restaurants easily accessible by boat. Your captain can suggest some great spots if you're not sure where to go.  Awaken your senses on the Amalfi Coast and truly experience La Bella Vita with this relaxing, fun and interactive excursion!

A dream day on the Amalfi Coast

It was a wonderful day. I can't think of a better way to experience the Amalfi Coast in one day than by boat. Communication with the operator "Exclusive Cruises" worked great. They contacted us and asked to change the time and place of departure, which we did. The captain picked us up from Nerano, which was cheaper for us than Positano. He responded to our requests. We could swim in beautiful places again and again. Drinks were also taken care of. It was fabulous.

Stunning. Exceptional. Better than anything in Rome.

Our English-speaking captain met us on the dock. He had a wonderful day planned that included plenty of private swims, snorkeling, and facts about the villas and rock formations. Lunch at a great restaurant 30' from the water and beer/water on the boat. We made it through a late afternoon thunder shower, but we were already wet! Best part of our Italian vacation. We did get a call the day before to upgrade the boat and we are glad we did. 38' cruiser made it much easier on two of our people who tend toward sea-sickness.

Off the charts & beyond outstanding!!

From the time I initiated my request, to the drop off point at my new location of Amalfi, Exclusive Cruises was outstanding and went way beyond expectations. I was promptly contacted by both phone and email by Valeria, who worked to coordinate a private honeymoon tour for my wife and I. She suggested great locations, and suggested a change to the day based on incoming weather. She also offered to transfer us by boat to Amalfi and arraigned a car from the pier to our new hotel. Okay, onto the tour. The boat was a 38 foot classic - cabin, front bow sofa, lounge/tanning pads and a cabin too, and the captain perfect. He took us to several grottos, islands and stopped to let us swim - I highly recommend Exclusive Cruises - they were so good, we decided to contact them again in Amalfi to have them take us to Capri. Well worth the money! Don't think twice.
