Leave for the island of Capri from Positano beach (Spiaggia Grande), or the main piers at Gavitella or La Praia beaches in Praiano. Aboard a traditional wooden gozzo, you’ll cruise over the Tyrrhenian Sea to the chic limestone island that is Capri.

Cruise around the island to visit the white and green caves as well as the famous Blue Grotto, which is lit up by light from an underwater cavity. Entrance is not included, but the sight of the cave’s blue reflection is worth the expense.

After a cool-down dip in the sea, you’ll dock on Capri to enjoy four hours of free time. Stroll around the Piazzetta, browse the chic shops, or visit Anacapri for sweeping sea views.

Meet back by your boat at the agreed time, then cruise over to the mainland, enjoying views of the trio of sea rocks known as the Faraglioni di Capri and the scenic headland of Punta Campanella. Your experience ends when you dock back at Positano or Praiano.

Great tour, great guide Andrea

Andrea was amazing! A lovely guide, we saw beautiful caves with him and he sailed the boat beautifully. Perfect day for my wife’s birthday. Thanks Andrea
Experience ok but not good as expected

Nice trip with some things that could be better. We booked this boat because we wanted to be at maximum 8 people (also due to the Covid) but we were 13! For some visit, nothing was booked and they asked us to wait at least 1 hour! Experience ok in General but not as good as we thought

Do not purchase your boat trip through viator. They overcharge for the same tour that you could get significantly cheaper in Positano. Save yourself the cash and wait until you get to the port to get different quotes.
The perfect boat experience!!

This was the perfect way to see Capri and more of the amalfi coast! Our guide was very good at making sure we were comfortable and having the best experience possible! We also stopped and had time for multiple photo opportunities and we were able to swim in the ocean! 10/10 would recommend!!

Our tour guide was wonderful!! Our enjoyment was clearly his priority and he did everything he could to make sure we had a smooth ride and saw/experienced everything we could want. Timing was perfect and all aspects of the schedule ran smoothly. I highly recommend this tour!!

Capri day tour and excursion
, Jul 2021
Beautiful experience! Tour guide was extremely friendly. We got four hours of free time in Capri but decided to just stay by the beach rather than explore and it was still an amazing experience

I cannot say enough good things about this excursion. The boat was easy to find at the marina and Francesco, our skipper, was so much fun and made the experience so special. We had 10 people on our boat and a nice bunny pad for sunbathing on our way to Capri. Francesco pointed out sights along the way and stopped in many of the grottos (not the Blue Grotto) on the way to Capri and even took photos of everyone after we passed through the Faraglioni. We spent 4 hours in Capri-- we chose to grab lunch and then hang at the free beach at Marina Piccola, where we would meet Francesco later. After we got back on the boat, we went to some more grottos and found a spot to swim off the boat. It was magical. Then Francesco pooped a bottle of prosecco and sailed back to Postiano and Praiano. Absolutely wonderful day-- wish I could go back right now!

Amazing day on the water!
, Apr 2019
We had the best time on our boat cruise to Capri. We boarded in Praiano and felt like absolute rock-stars when we were greeted at the marina and escorted directly to our boat. Francesco was amazing, he was very pleasant and checked in multiple times to make sure we were doing ok. We stopped in Positano to pick up more people, then headed off to Capri where Francesco took us around the island to show us the various grottoes and noteworthy items. Since it was the middle of April, it was too cold for anyone to jump in and swim when we stopped, so we all enjoyed a bottle of prosecco and the sunshine. Highly recommend!

Capri day trip from Amalfi Coast
, Sep 2018
The boat ride from Positano to Capri was a wonderful way to see the beauty of the Amalfi Coast. We saw various formations and grottos along the way that were absolutely beautiful. Our guide provided background at each stop along the way explaining the various formations and sites we saw. We had a four hour stay in Capri providing more than enough time to eat, shop and experience the views from the top of the island.
