What people are saying about Maiori

Our tour down the coast was beautiful and we really enjoyed the multiple spots we could jump off the boat and swim. Our captain took us to several caves and waterfall to swim, as well as a small beach. The only thing that would have made it better is if our captain spoke about points of interest without us having to ask about everything we were seeing.

Our captain(Adrian I believe) was wonderful and an excellent driver considering the boat traffic he had to maneuver through! He made reservations for us on Capri for lunch and made sure we got to where we needed to be! Great communicator and a lovely ride…would recommend!

We really enjoy the boat trip in the Amalfi Coast!! We swam, enjoyed the beautiful views and we had an excellent crew. We recommend this boat trip.

The guide was very informative. The overall trip was very good. Boat was as good as new.

It was a wonderful day with a wonderful skipper Flavio
