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.

Absolutely amazing tour with a great boat crew who were informative and fun! The highlight of our trip in Southern Italy. We started at the blue grotto and then got to see a few other beautiful grottos as well! We swam in the afternoon and the noodles provided were awesome to have. Ended the beautiful day with limoncello. Highly recommend!

The main guide was hilarious, extremely friendly which was so nice for a change, good info that was provided and we never felt rushed when we were on the boat and jumping off the boat. They provided googles, noodles to float on, beer afterwards and lemonchello to sip on when the guide ended. Only thing I would recommend is if you want to explore the island of Capri more book the longer tour, 5 hours was not enough. Thank you guys for a great day!!

We had a wonderful transport and tour to Capri with Captain Mario and tour guide Renzo. The boat was well equipped with provisions including foam noodles and swim masks for our quick swim stop. We learned so much about the history of Capri as we boated around the island. A quick stop for a close up view of the green and white grottos was lovely. A 5 star day!
