Cruise Down the Coast

After meeting your friendly crew at Darsena Pier in Amalfi town, you'll hop on a luxury cruiser and head west towards Positano. Have a cold beer or a glass of champagne, relax and enjoy the ride.

The route will take you along Amalfi Coast’s finest beaches as well as close to natural rock arches and into sea caves, giving us the opportunity to admire the old watch towers that dot the entire length of this coast. Right after leaving the center of Amalfi, you will visit the San Andrea Grotto, a huge natural sea cave full of stalactites named for the patron saint of Amalfi (Saint Andrew).

Later in Conca dei Marini, see the wondrous Villa of Sofia Loren, the "Italian Marylin Monroe" and the historic castle that is now the "Il Saraceno" Hotel. There you will also see true history, the Santa Rosa Monastery where one of Italy's most delicious desserts, the Sfogliatella was born.

Snorkeling and Swimming

Some of the Amalfi Coast's most beautiful beaches are accessible only by boat, so today you'll have the chance to swim and snorkel in the crystal clear Mediterranean waters without the big crowds. Head down into underwater grottoes and see Amalfi like never before.

One spot is the Runghetiello Grotto and its tiny beach, where you will anchor for a break and to go swimming or snorkeling. This picturesque natural sea cave named after a local fish is brightly frescoed in red and green by the minerals on its walls, making it a great spot for a dip.

Fjords, Grottoes, and the Arc of Lovers

On this voyage, you'll experience many of the Amalfi Coast's greatest natural wonders including Italy's only fjord. Home to one of world's premier professional diving competitions, divers jump from a bridge 28 meters high!

Though less of a daredevil location than the fjord, the Arc of Lovers is no less impressive. A natural rock arch millions of years old, the arch recalls two elephants kissing. Though no longer allowed for safety and preservation reasons, it has hosted many wedding ceremonies.

Before heading back to Amalfi you'll pass by the Conca dei Marini cape where you will have stunning views across the many villages of the coast, as well as the famous island of Capri.

This was our first time snorkeling and let me say, my fiancee and I had a blast! This was probably one of the biggest highlights of our trip to Italy. The boat cruise was majestic and I can't imagine a better day on the Amalfi Coast.

Felt like a VIP!

Really awesome experience. Super relaxing on the boat, they even had free beer! The swimming and snorkeling were lots of fun for the kids. Can't recommend it enough.
