After pickup from your hotel, your boat tour will depart at 9:00 AM. First, you'll sail around Li Galli island, where the myth of Ulysses and the Sirens is said to have been set. Then your boat will head to the Ancient Marine Republic of Amalfi where you'll enjoy 3 - 3.5 hours of free time to explore the town.

Don't miss seeing the main local attractions such as the Cathedral and the Cloister of Paradise. Enjoy some time on the pebble beach, tanning and swimming in the azure waters. You may also want to shop for local products like the world-famous Amalfi Coast lemons and limoncello.  Next, sail towards Positano, where you'll also have about 1.5 - 2 hours to yourself. Admire the picturesque Furore and the beautiful old town of Praiano. On the return trip, you'll find the Fjord of Crapolla and the enchanting Islet d'Isca that belongs to Eduardo de Filippo. Finally, arrive back at the port at about 5:15 PM to catch your shuttle back to your accommodations.

Our tour guide was AMAZING! A real local, so knowledgeable about the area and highly entertaining. She did the tour in both English and Italian, going back and forth between the two. We felt the time in Positano was a bit too long (same stuff to see/eat/do as Amalfi) at the end of the day, but otherwise the trip was fabulous. Side note: a list of the better restaurants in Amalfi would have been nice, we chose poorly and ended up eaten the worst food of our whole trip there (still decent, but not nearly as good as other places).

Our guide was very friendly and informative. We chose the tour with pickup from Sorrento. It was so worth it. The shuttle drive alone from Sorrento to Nerano was an adventure and a peek into other towns. The Amalfi coast is stunning. We went for our honeymoon and highly recommend this boat tour. Our stop in Amalfi was lovely.. Positano was nice too!

Brilliant day - the tour was amazing! The boat tour guide provided information about the scenery and heritage through out the day. You stop at two locations with plenty of time to explore in each. It is a such more intimate way to explore the Amalfi coast which I would 199% recommend. You get a lot closer to the coastline than other boats such as ferries and take your time alongside to give you enough time to soak in the beautiful scenery!
