As you approach the Isle of Capri and then cruise around it you’ll see the statue of the Scugnizzo, the Grotta del Corallo, the Grotta Bianca, the Natural Arch, Villa Malaparte, the Faraglioni, the Bay of Marina Piccola, the Grotta Verde, the Lighthouse at Punta Carena and the Grotta Azzurra.

We had the BEST time on this boat tour around Capri! The boat far exceeded expectations and was absolutely fabulous. We had 9 people on the boat and were totally comfortable with plenty of room to spread out and relax in the sun. Our captain and the co-captain (I think Odella was her name) were so friendly and knowledgeable about the best places to go. There were refreshments like water, soda, beer and shot of limoncello to top off the fantastic service. We had other groups of friends rent boats from different companies and we by far had the best experience for the price. We would highly recommend this for your boat tour around Capri! and if you haven’t decided that you definitely want to do a boat tour during your time in Capri, let me tell you it was the most fun we had. And stop searching because this one is IT!

A fantastic experience! We were a group of 5 girls going on this boat excursion. The captain knew the area very well and took us to the best places along the Amalfi coast and we get to see the front of Capri island. He listened to our wishes and took us where we wanted to go. He was happy to help with taking pictures of us in front of all the nice places. He was also very good in english and easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend this experience and it was totally worth the money!

I booked a boat for 9 people. We had a very nice tour of Capri and the possibility to swim. Three hours are perfect to go all around the island. The captain Andrea was very polite and explained us some curious info.

Amazing day on the water and on Capri with Antonino, who was a gracious host and a wonderful guide, telling us stories and sharing Prosecco throughout the day.

Was a great experience! Thank you! And also Francesco was an excelent companion!
