Admire the spectacular Amalfi coastline from the sea on the boat ride to Capri. Then independently explore the island, which you will circumnavigate before cruising back to Positano.
The sun-kissed island of Capri, basking in the midst of the Tyrrhenian Sea, has been enchanting visitors for centuries. This full day boat excursion takes you around this stunning Mediterranean island so you can explore its celebrated rocky coastline, which hides many caves and secret grottos in its depths.
Departing from Positano, as you come into Capri you'll pass the infamous Tiberio's leap - legend has it that this was the place where disobedient servants and unwanted guests were thrown over the cliff! Upon reaching the island's port, your captain provides you with maps of the island, as well as information about the must-see sites; then you have about four hours to independently explore the island.
Once you return to the boat, a panoramic ride around the island begins and you will be able to admire Capri's rugged cliffs, white sand beaches, lemon trees, flowers and magnificent views from the water. An optional stop at the beautiful Blue Grotto, known for the intense blue tones of its interior and the magical silvery light, gives you a chance to enter the mouth of the cave to admire the spectacular colors. Then, you'll head to the Green Grotto, named for the emerald colored waters that fill its interior.
Capri's iconic symbol is the trio of three rugged rock formations known as the Faraglioni. On your way to see them, you can stop for a swim in one of the island's hidden bays. Last stop of the tour is the White Grotto. At the conclusion of the excursion, you'll return to Positano with many happy memories and pictures of the fabled isle of Capri.
Transportation to the Positano pier is NOT included in the total price. Please note that if you are NOT staying in Positano, we strongly recommend that you book a private transfer or that you take a cab to the meeting point. If you wish to book a private transfer, we will gladly assist you.

Our boat ride to the Island of Capri was a fantastic way to see the Amalfi Coastline and to learn the history of different islands and areas. Swimming in the clear lagoons was fantastic and refreshing. The water was clear and clean-simply beautiful. There is a large selection of wonderful restaurants on the Island of Capri to relax and enjoy the cuisine. Would definitely recommend this trip!!
#1 Highlight of trip was the Capri boat trip. The guide was excellent. He found out what we were looking for and made it happen. Excellent day. We really loved that day trip.
the boat tour of Capri was the best part of our 2 week trip throughout Italy. The boat only had 12 passengers so there was plenty of room. The boat captain was extremely knowledgable about the area and knew how to handle a boat. He even saw that the waters were jellyfish infested, and took us to a different area to swim. The tour group called me the night before to confirm and also to make sure I knew where to go in the morning. They also provided maps and ideas of what to do in Capri. An absolutely fabulous tour!
