Full description

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 to swim, snorkeling and admire the rich marine life of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Enjoy your choice of drinks on board.

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.

Highly recommend. We were promptly picked up and dropped off. Our captain and guide were great and told us all about major points around the island as well as recommended some activities. You’re given enough time to explore the island but also good time on the boat to swim and see the beautiful sites. Would definitely book again.

Honestly it probably should have been canceled by the tour operator. The weather was horrible and we did not get to do the Blue Grotto or swim. It poured in Capris which meant there was not a lot of walking around seeing the town. The only saving grace was our delightful guide who was very knowledgeable and had a great personality.

Italo was a great guide, which made the time on the boat very enjoyable. The 4 hours of free time on Capri was the perfect amount of to explore the town and lay by the water with a pizza and Peroni. No blue grotto visit this trip due to the weather/wind, but it wasn't a problem at all!
