Amalfi Coast: Boat and Snorkeling Tour in Small Group

1. Amalfi Coast: Boat and Snorkeling Tour in Small Group

Board an Amalfitan Gozzo boat for a scenic ride along the Amalfi coast. Admire natural wonders, including the Natural Arch and Faraglioni Rocks. Swim and snorkel or relax on the shores of secluded beaches. Once everybody has jumped on board and had a little briefing about how you're going to spend the day, you will be ready to set off to the west towards Positano. The route will take you along Amalfi Coast’s finest beaches as well as close to natural rock arches and into sea caves, giving you the opportunity to admire the old watchtowers that dot the entire length of this coast. You will pause at beaches reachable only by sea and have time to go snorkeling or swimming in crystal-clear waters and into grottoes. Not too far from the starting point, right after leaving the center of Amalfi, you will get close to Saint Andrew's Grotto, a huge natural sea cave full of stalactites named after the patron saint of Amalfi (Andrea). Then, once passed Duoglio and Santa Croce beaches, you will stop by the "Arc of Lovers", a natural rock arch created millions of years ago by the erosion of the sea whose shape recalls two elephants in the act of kissing. Up to not too long ago young couples used to get married on the top of it. A little later you will cruise in front of the ancient fishing village of Conca dei Marini, passing near the villa of Sophia Loren and seeing the historic hotel “Il Saraceno” located on La Vite Beach. From here you will also have a stunning view of the Santa Rosa Monastery, a former convent now converted into a luxury hotel, once home of the Dominican nuns. It's right in the kitchens of this monastery that the delicious "Sfogliatella Santa Rosa" was born, a shell-shaped pastry filled with ricotta cheese-based cream and little dried fruit pieces, typical of the local culinary tradition (don't forget to taste it before leaving!). Once past the seaside of Conca dei Marini you will enter its western basin, where you will have a beautiful view of Furore and Praiano villages and the islands of Li Galli and Capri, together with the well-known Faraglioni Rocks. Further inside this basin we will find the little Runghetiello Grotto and its tiny beach, where you will anchor for a break to go swimming or snorkeling. You will reach then the famous Furore Fjord, the only natural fjord in Italy and location of the international diving competition "MarMeeting": every year in July, professional divers from around the world compete by jumping from the top of the bridge which is 28 meters high. Navigating a little farther onward to the village of Praiano you will be able to have a close look at a bigger sea cave, the Africana Grotto, where the water has a distinctive blue color thanks to the unique refraction of light. Finally you will go round Capo Sottile and continue cruising to Positano, where you will have another break for snorkeling at a beach reachable only by the sea and so not crowded at all: La Porta. The return trip to Amalfi will give you a different but equally remarkable view of both sea and land.

An experience you won’t forget! Had the perfect day sitting back and taking in the Amalfi coast line our captain was very friendly and made us feel welcomed on board and provided us with lovely refreshing melons and Prosecco after our first snorkelling stop then after continuing our journey we would pause occasionally while the captain informs us of the sites we are seeing along the way and what to look out for while cruising We then stop near Positano for another swim which you can swim to the small beach and even rock dive if you dare Before swimming back to the boat to enjoy some limoncello with the backdrop of Positano It couldn’t be more perfect! We had a fantastic time thank you for the experience and to our captain Raphael

We were picked up in Amalfi with a private van for 8 people. The driver Dino drove us neatly to Sorento and even dropped us off on the way back in Ravello, where our hotel was. The boat trip was spectacular with skipper Lorenzo. After a good hour marines arrived in Capri. There we had 4 hours to visit the island. You do need this. The time is so over. We first went up with the cogwheel team to view the town and then took a taxi to the cable car to view the highest point of Capri. A breathtaking view. The tour was well worth the money. Took more than the agreed 10 hours. A great day

We had a wonderful day on board the boat, great experiences in Capri enjoyed the Amalfi Coast from the water. We would definitely book again. Everything worked great.

Amazing activity. You see and learn important things from the villages/city. Not too long and very enjoyable. Our guide/host (Rafael) was amazing! Thank you

We loved this tour. Perfect amount of swim time, amazing views and nice drinks too. Our guide was fun and informative.
