After a couple of hours free time, head back onto the boat for the next part of your day at sea.

After your free time on Capri, the cruise continues through Capri's iconic Faraglioni. The impressive rock structures standing over 300 feet tall are Capri's most recognizable landmark.

One of the highlights of Capri is the abundance of beautiful natural caves along the coast, locally known as "grottoes." As you sail around the island, you'll stop to visit the Marvelous Grotto, White Grotto, and Green Grotto.

This part of the day is the perfect time to jump in the warm Mediterranean waters for a swim, or you can choose to snorkel and explore the reefs and caves.

Local Lunch Prepared on Board

As you explore the Capri coastline, a delicious lunch will be prepared by your local fisherman. Enjoy authentic flavors including pastas, fresh mozzarella, and more.

Had one of the best days on our trip thanks to Sal and Frank. They were Wonderful. Sal is just a joy. Stopped at Capri for a few hours so we could see the island. They had a homemade lunch on the boat while we were anchored in a beautiful setting. Sal's mom made one of the best cakes I have ever had. Just an absolutely wonderful experience . If you are looking for a leisurely day on the water this is the way to go . It's not "fancy" but you couldn't ask for a better day .

So much fun for our whole family!

We had an amazing time with our two fisherman guides. They were wonderful and really helped us make fishing seem easy! My 7 year old was able to catch a fish and it was the highlight of her trip. Capri is absolutely beautiful, the boat day was awesome. Our favorite experience from our time in the Amalfi Coast
