Morning Departure from Amalfi

Your day begins at Darsena Pier in Amalfi, where your boat will be waiting along with your English-speaking trip leader and skipper. After a glass of prosecco to toast the journey ahead, you'll set sail on the Mediterranean Sea.

The boat holds a maximum of 12 people—a wonderful small group to explore Capri and the coast. As you pull out of the marina, take in the amazing views of the Amalfi coast before turning your eyes to Capri.

Take a Dip at the Li Galli Islands

Before reaching Capri, your skipper will make a stop at the stunning Li Galli Islands. This mini archipelago of three rocky islands is a place of legend, thought to be home to sirens who drew ships to crash upon the shore.

Nowadays the islands are privately owned and have hosted numerous luxury vacations for the rich and famous. Surrounded by beautiful turquoise waters, it’s the perfect place to take a refreshing swim before continuing your journey.

Cruise to Capri

Sit back and relax as the boat cruises along the Amalfi Coast, and soon you'll approach the eye-catching island of Capri—known as one of Italy's most luxurious destinations.

One of your first views will be the ruins of Tiberius' Imperial Palace. The second emperor in Roman history lived in Capri during the tumultuous days of his reign. Your trip leader will tell the story of how the Roman Empire almost collapsed just a few years into Tiberius' rule.

Once you arrive in Capri, you'll tour the island by boat with a chance to admire its famous rock formations and hidden spots. Along the way you will admire the Natural Arch, the Villa Curzio Malaparte, the Faraglioni rocks, and the Lighthouse of Punta Carena. There will be another stop for swimming and snorkeling near the iconic Faraglioni sea stacks, and a relaxing break with a caprese sandwich and water offered on board.

Capri's Famous Caves

Before docking, you'll sail around the island to see more of the stunning coastline, and you'll cruise through the three of Capri's stunning grottoes (sea caves). Take in the serenity of the Green, White, and Marvelous Grottoes before returning to Marina Grande to disembark.

This tour doesn't stop at the famous Blue Grotto due to long waiting times and boat restrictions, but you can visit during your free time in Capri if you'd like to. Tickets are required to hop on one of the approved rowboats that enter the Blue Grotto, so just make sure to bring the €14 entry fee in cash for each person in your group and enjoy a dazzling ride through this incredible cave.

Explore the Island of Capri

Arriving back in Marina Grande, your boat will dock in the marina and you'll have around 3 hours to take in this charming little island at your own pace. Your crew will be happy to tell you where to get the best pasta, pizza, and seafood for lunch, and you can stroll through the cobblestone streets to your heart's content.

You might decide to visit the Blue Grotto, take the funicular (tram) through the lemon groves to Capri Town where you'll find most of the designer shops, or you can simply take a walk and find one on the many incredible viewpoints on the island. After a few hours of free time, head back onto the boat for the final stretch of your day at sea.

Swimming, Snorkeling, and Relaxation

Throughout the day, there will be plenty of chances to jump in the warm Mediterranean waters for a swim, or you can choose to snorkel and explore the reefs and caves (bring your own snorkel gear). With a caprese sandwich and water provided onboard, enjoy a relaxing cruise in one of Europe's most beautiful settings.

When it is time to return, we will head back to Amalfi with a final stop in the marine protected area of Punta Campanella! This day trip to Capri from Amalfi is sure to be a dreamy memory from your Italian vacation. Ciao!

It was such a great experience!!! We loved visit Capri and mostly spend the day around Sorrento and Capri coasts with the boat, specially with Francesca and Matia, they have been a very very very nice guide tour and skipper. Definitely, this tour wouldn't have been the same without them. They are so funny and kind!

Great Day at Sea!

This was the highlight of our vacation. It was just our family and a couple from North Carolina. We felt like VIPs as they gave us delicious wine and snacks throughout the day. The pickup location was just a two-minute walk from our Airbnb so it worked out perfectly. We really enjoyed taking the boat through the caves.
