But above all, thanks to the hybrid boat, you will enjoy exclusive access to the Bay of Ieranto, a natural paradise that is part of the Marine Protected Area of Punta Campanella, and therefore inaccessible to boats with diesel engine. Navigate in total silence and zero emissions and discover the infinite beauty of the Amalfi coast by sea.

To know more about your boat trip...

The name Ieranto derives from the Greek “Ieros” or “sacred” : here near Punta Campanella stood the temple of the Goddess Athena and here Homer placed the Sirens who enchanted Ulysse. Today the sacred atmosphere is still breathed walking on waves of rock, in front of panoramic views that open into a sudden blue. The Ieranto bay is a strip of land that stretches from the fishing village of Nerano to almost churning out Capri. Ieranto is now owned by FAI, the national fund for the environment, which often organizes guided tours. Access to the area is always free.

      This is not the first time I have booked a tour with Youknow!

      A couple of years ago I went on their tour to Capri and was absolutely delighted with the experience. I'd been wanting to book this hybrid cruise along the Amalfi Coast for a while and as soon as I heard I was going back to Italy I didn't hesitate to book it. The staff on board were incredibly friendly and welcoming and the places we visited were incredible! If you're thinking of going on a tour with them, do it: you won't be disappointed!

      10!

      I’ve been on many boat tours, but this one stood out in every way. The hybrid boat was impressively quiet and our captain shared charming local legends that brought the landscape to life. Swimming in the serene waters of Baia di Ieranto was like a dream, so peaceful and untouched. Wandering through the colorful streets of Positano and Amalfi felt like stepping into a postcard. A day to remember!

      A flawless trip in every way.

      The choice of a hybrid boat for sailing shows a real commitment to sustainability, which in my opinion is no small feat. The skipper's ability to navigate the sometimes crowded waters without disturbing the tranquility of the place was outstanding. The stops to swim in the crystal clear waters were refreshing and the time spent visiting Positano and Amalfi was enough to savor the beauty of these places. Highly recommended for those wanting an unforgettable day on the Amalfi Coast.

      Unbelievable. Highlight of the trip! Best day ever!

      On 9-Oct we did the Sorrento & Amalfi coast in a lovely boat so comfortable, lying on the bow and had an unbelievable experience. Luisa our host and driver Nello absolutely deserve top marks for what they do. We did everything from viewing the stunning scenery, to swims with a beer in hand to checking out lovely places such as Amalfi & Positano. Unreal. Great fun!! Biggest recommendation...an absolute must do! Barry & Maebh Irish Honeymooners

      Best way to experience the Amalfi coast

      If you want one guaranteed highlight of your Italy trip, book this tour! There is seriously no better, more stunning and stylish way to arrive in Amalfi and Positano than on boat - and this boat will not disappoint! It's meticulously clean, very comfortable and safe. And if you are lucky, you get the best host: Roberta - and best, most skilled and safest skipper: Frederico.
