Meet your skipper at the Positano port and hop aboard your boat with your small group. Sit back and relax as you take off along the water, passing white sand beaches, dramatic cliffs, and scenic fishing villages.

Travel through the sparkling waters of Conca dei Marini and opt to stop at the Emerald Grotto (own expense), a famous sea cave where stalactites hang from the ceiling, stalagmites sprout from the cave floor and the waters give off a rare green hue.

Glide by the whitewashed houses of Praiano, a fishing village set into the cliffs. Continue past the Furore fjord, turning into a narrow cove not accessible by land. Pause for a refreshing swim inside the hidden caves and dip into a cascade of fresh spring water.

Afterward, dock in Amalfi to spend a few hours exploring independently. Relax with a fresh seafood lunch at your own expense, before checking out the 11th-century cathedral, the bustling harbor or the local shops. As an alternative to Amalfi, take the bus up to the resort town of Ravello for spectacular views of the coast below.

After sightseeing at your leisure, reunite with your group on the boat. If time allows, continue past Maiori for one last swim in a secluded cave.

Your full-day cruise concludes back at your original departure point.

Definitely would recommend!

Amazing tour - 100% would do it again! Our tour guide was great fun, and also Elizabeth from BlueStar was extremely helpful when we were late for our ferry back to Salerno - she managed to get us on another ferry for free and made sure that we got on safe. They also gave us a little souvenir from Positano because there was a slight delay for our return - absolutely delightful. Thank you everyone for the excellent tour and service. Hope to see you soon!

Fabio was our wonderful and knowledgeable skipper. To say the Amalfi Coast is breathtakingly beautiful is an understatement. Bellisimo! We went to Amafi, a grotto, and swam in the sea! A Must do!
Wonderful Day Trip

This was a fantastic day trip with an absolutely wonderful boat captain (Saulo?). He was entertaining, informative, helpful, accommodating, and just an all around joy to have on the trip.
Amazing day along the coast

Fabio and Sky took us from positano to Amalfi and all along the coast. Best part is getting to stop along the way to swim in the ocean and explore some caves. Fabio and Sky were super friendly and accommodating. On the way back they cranked the music and we hit some waves which was so much fun! You can tell they alter the tour to suit the group. Great price for a fabulous day on the water. Wish we would have booked another day!
Best Part of Our Amalfi Coast Trip
, Aug 2019
Excellent driver - Fabio - who went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and taken care of. A group trip of 12 was actually only 8, giving us ample room on the boat to make it our own. A brilliant experience, and the highlight of our honeymoon. Highly recommended!

I scheduled this trip with two teenage girls and they loved it. I especially chose this trip because it took no more than 12 people and we would get views of the coast line from the water's edge. The scenery was absolutely beautiful. We stopped several times to swim in the waters along the coast. A lunch option was to eat at a water front restaurant where access is only done by boast. We chose this option and the food was delicious! The friendly boat captain added to enjoyment of the trip.
Beautiful day on the water!

A must do when visiting the Amalfi coast! A completely different experience seeing the coast from the water. Lots of stops to swim and snorkel, and light snacks and beverages were included! Our guide Marco was fantastic! He provided lots of information about the area and took us to the best spots!
