Great tour at a good price. The ticket booth is on a corner facing the dock from which the boat leaves. There were plenty of seats in the covered inside area below or outside on the top deck. The boat operators point out sights and give a little information about the area in several languages, and they turn the boat in such a way that people sitting on both sides of the boat can see. When they get to the Blue Grotto, those who want can pay extra (I think €14), transfer into small rowboats and go into the grotto, about 6-8 people per rowboat. We skipped that, but those on our tour who did go were in the grotto for about 10-15 minutes and said it was nice but not spectacular. The entire tour took about 2 hours, including the time spent waiting at the Blue Grotto. The views of the island from boat are amazing, definitely worth doing!

The boat tour was a highlight of my family’s trip to Italy! We had incredible weather, so the trip around capri and access to the blue grotto while it was sunny was unforgettable. The boat captains are not there to play tour guide…they will tell you little pieces of information about what you’re seeing, and they are polite, but they don’t talk for most of the boat trip. We didn’t expect them to, so it didn’t detract from an amazing morning on the island. We took an early ferry from Naples, and got the first boat tour around the entire island at 10am. We only had to wait 5 minutes to get into the blue grotto, which was a big bonus!

This tour was so amazing!! Our guide spoke both English & Italian. We were able to get on our tour earlier than scheduled. He pointed out the history of all the scenery. Would give this tour 10 stars if I could & a great price!! Definitely worth it if you’re looking for a fun time in Capri. Only downside was that the Blue Grotto was closed at the time we went but would definitely love to go back!

The blue grotto was not open on the day of our tour but it didn’t detract from our boat tour experience at all. The day was sunny and the water and stone formations on Capri were beautiful! Our boat captain was really experienced and got very close to the white and green grottoes so that we can taken some gorgeous pictures. Overall a wonderful experience!

Our tour was outstanding! What made it so special was our tour guide Pepe. He lives in Capri so his knowledge of the area was priceless. Each person in our group had their own special things to wanted to do in Capri. Pepe made sure each of us got to see and do everything on our list! Great tour and even better guide Pepe!!
