Sorrento: Exclusive Capri Boat Tour and Optional Blue Grotto

1. Sorrento: Exclusive Capri Boat Tour and Optional Blue Grotto

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.

What people are saying about Sorrento

Our guide, Elena, was fabulous! Her enthusiasm and passion for Pompeii were exhibited throughout the day by her extensive knowledge, storytelling ability, and humor. She was truly a delight! She answered all of my questions and I observed her responding to many other questions from guests. I can’t imagine touring Pompeii without a knowledgeable guide, as there is no signage to explain what one is viewing and Pompeii is one interesting place! The views from Mt Vesuvius were spectacular! We were given just the right amount of time to climb it, linger and return. We did not feel rushed at Pompeii or Mt Vesuvius. I would highly recommend this tour!

Great day! Small group of 21 people. Great guide (we were in Nena’s group) and great driver! Enjoyed the beauty of the Almafi coast and received info along the way of what we were seeing and the history. Enjoyed time in Positano, Almafi and Revello. Would have preferred more time in Positano and skipped Revello as not much there other than a scenic view.

it was a great experience to learn about the history of Pompei and Mt. Vesuvius. Our guide was brilliant! super friendly, passionate, and knowledgeable on the subject matter! would definitely recommend this guided tour, especially if you are short on time and need an organized way to explore Pompeii and Vesuvius.

Great day out, an amazing tour guide (Desiré) - so friendly and helpful. Pompeii was great, had enough time and had a few rest stops before and after the tour for lunch etc. Afternoon at Mount Versuvius was lovely too. Would definitely recommend this!

Our guide Ornella was very nice. She told us many interesting facts and was really helpfull from the start till the end of the trip. Do not remember the name of the driver but he was excellent!
