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 Bay of Ieranto 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.


It takes around 1 hour and 30 minutes to arrive to Amalfi by boat.

      Very well done!

      Lizzy H.
      We were picked up from a close location from our B&B and taken to the Port where we checked in and started this wonderful adventure. We stopped twice along the coast to let people who wanted to swim in the beautiful sea have fun and snorkel, but we stayed on board and enjoyed conversation with another couple and the hostess Luisa. The stops in the cities of Amalfi and Positano were the correct amount of time in my opinion and we received a very nice sandwich to eat so we did not have to bother to go to a Restaurant. During the whole trip also drinks were served all the time and at the end a delicious shot of limoncello! Highly recommended.

      Highly recommend

      I highly recommend this small group boat tour of the amalfi coast for its beautiful views and the opportunity to get a nice tour of both cities in a day. We had time to visit Amalfi and also Positano, even though in Positano we decided to just relax on the beach. During the day they served us a sandwich, drinks and good music all day-long. We stopped twice to dip in the clear-blue sea and took amazing pictures of the landscape! 5 stars!

      Fantastic views of the coast

      Picked up by bus and dropped to Piano Sorrento where we checked in and were shown our boat (Number 12, sorry cant remember the skipper or host names)by a local host who stayed with us the whole day. We set off and were shown many highlights all along the coast, even taking in a shower from a waterfall as well as a swim in the sea. Dropped off in Amalfi for a couple of hours , then on to Positano, and another swim in the Sea on the way back. A very memorable day with 2 excellent crew members who made the day special with their knowledge and guidance. Did I mention... we were also offered Peroni/soft drinks and snacks along the way.

      Service was Amazing!!

      Mary C
      From the minute we got picked up from our hotel to the service director to the amazing Tommaso, this was the best part of our trip, we enjoyed everything, Tommaso was a great host and myself and my family would recommend this trip to anyone who are visiting the Amalfi Coast. If I could rate this trip definitely a 100 Star Trip. Thank you!!!

      Amazing day!

      We had a perfect day exploring Amalfi and Positano by boat. Our original day booked had to be rescheduled due to weather and Ilaria was beyond helpful getting this done - she called our hotel and worked with us! So glad we got to reschedule because this was the best day of our trip. Giovani was a great captain, the snacks on board were great, no complaints!

      Outstanding experience

      Elizabeth L
      This trip was all it was advertised to be. Arrangements were made for them to pick us up at a close location. Several different booking agencies worked together very well to take care of multiple groups/boats of up to 12 from a central location. Our host on board, Josephine was an absolute delight and her English was very good. We did stop twice along the coast to allow for people who wanted to swim in the Mediterranean, but we stayed on board and enjoyed conversation with another couple and the hostess. Our stops in Amalfi and Positano were for the perfect lengths of time. The captain of the boat worked with our host to meet the desires of those on board. Everyone on board did as they wished when we docked. We like to stop at churches where ever we go and both have great churches to visit. We also decided to stop and have gelato in Amalfi and lemon sorbet served in a huge locally grown frozen hollowed out lemon in a little shop right down on the water front in Positano. Most people in this area of Italy speak some English, so it is very easy to shop and to ask questions. We would do this again. Thank you


      We used this company for a Amalfi and Postiano boat trip. I must say it is one of the best boat trips I have done. There was only 12 on the speedboat and Tony our skipper was brilliant. He showed us all points of interest which he slowed down for to tell us the info. He kept asking if we’re ok and we had drinks and snacks on our way home back to the marina. If in Sorrento again will definately used these guys.

      Super boat trip

      John H
      The You Know company collected us from our hotel and brought us to sorrento harbour . It seemed a bit chaotic when we got there but once got on our boat everything soon took a turn for the better. The boat was spacious and comfortable and bigger and better than most of the other boats that I could see doing excursions like these. There were 12 of us on the boat and we were soon stretched across the front deck or leaning over the side with our legs dipping into the water. We were brought to amalfi and positano and spent 2hrs in the former and 1 hr in the later. We dived off the boat and swam in the sea. We were served beer wine and limoncella with a few crisps and light snacks. The trip cost €100 pp but we left the harbour at 10 45 and didn't return until 1900 so it was worth every penny. It was a highly enjoyable way to see the spectacular amalfi coast and it's beautiful towns. If you want to mix a great day out with visiting the amalfi coast whilst avoiding the traffic on the roads this is the way to go

      Amalfi coast cruise

      We booked a cruise of the Sorrento and Amalfi Coast through our apartment owner with this company. We had a fabulous day at sea. Visited Amalfi and Positano and swam in the water twice. Our kids loved their day on the boat. The staff was very helpful and well organized. I would recommend this company - it is well Worth the price paid. There was a long wait in the morning, prior to knowing what boat we were going to use, but we were in nice surroundings... so no big deal!

      The best boat trip of our holiday! Loved it.

      Mrs S.
      We booked a cruise trip via Thomson for 4 adults to Amalfi and Positano for the day. We were collected by taxi from our hotel at 8.30 am and driven to the harbour. We had to wait around for 40mins then our allocated boat driver welcomed us onto his boat with 8 other people. His name was Fonzi, he was the best; very informative explaining all the scenery and points of interests, best hotels etc. we were offered chips, soft drinks & wine.(very nice). We pulled into a beautiful cove, had a shower under a fresh waterfall, swam in the blue warm sea. Amazing!!!! We were left to explore amalfi for one hour and later Positano for 2 hours. Fonzi was so helpful, anything you required he provided, a fantastic sense of humour. The scenery, the boat, amalfi, positano, the sea, but most important Fonzi made the day the best we had all week!!!! We highly recommend this trip. We arrived back to Sorrento about 7.30 where a taxi was waiting for us. FABULOUS!!!! Cant wait to do it again next time I am in Sorrento.

      Best boat tour in Sorrento

      We used Youknowboat.com while vacationing in Sorrento. It is convenient, they have a driver pick you up at your hotel and bring you to the port. There we were met by the skipper who secured a self drive boat and tour even though the season was not yet open. I highly recommend this company over any other in the area. They are accommodating and reliable, we are using them again next year since it was the highlight of our trip. Tour to Capri, Ischia and Amalfi are an absolute must when visiting this area.

      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

      Boat trip to Amalfi and Positano

      Myself and my husband took this trip today , we didn’t know what to expect but my god it was a 10/10 service from start to finish. Luisa our guide and Nello our Captain were an absolute pleasure to be with. I’ve two fractures in my back and they both could not have helped any better to make our trip as comfortable and enjoyable as ever. We’d highly recommend this trip it’s made our holiday. It was the best day by far. We’re so glad we done it.

      A Perfect Sorrento/Amalfi Cruise

      The cruise from Sorrento to Amalfi and return was a wonderful way to begin our visit to Italy. With Raffaele driving the well maintained boat (and singing along with a song or two) and Luisa as a wonderful guide as we explored the Sorrento and Amalfi coasts in perfect weather, what could be better? Snacks included a sandwich of mozzarella and tomato, beverages, some tasty bites. Along with some wonderful swim s5ops and fresh water rinse-offs, what could make the day more perfect?

      Unforgettable experience!

      This was one of our favorite parts of our 2 week Italian honeymoon. Luca was very attentive to our needs and told us interesting facts about the coast as we rode to our destinations. Mattia was an excellent driver and added to the positive experience of the day. Both Luca and Mattia wanted to make sure we had an enjoyable experience and allowed us to customize our trip. We made two stops on our trip: Amalfi (to shop & eat lunch) and Positano (to swim). Luca was kind enough to take pictures of us swimming and shared them with us right away. We would recommend this company, Luca, and Mattia to anyone looking for a relaxing and fun boat company.

      Amazing day out with Alex and Fred

      We were picked up from our hotel in Sorrento and looked after the whole day by Alex and Fred on our Amalfi Coast tour. Both Alex and Fred were very knowledgable and entertaining, stopping at beautiful and historic areas and explaining in detail about the areas in great English. I cannot recommend this tour enough and it was great value for money. We’ve booked another tour with You Know! to Capri tomorrow which we can’t wait for! Thanks again! Becky & Dan

      This boat trip was the highlight of our holiday to Italy! We set off from Piano di Sorrento. The boat was amazing we stopped off at Amalfi and Positano. Seeing the coastline on the boat was absolutely breathtaking! Francesca our guide and the Skipper Mimmo were absolutely class from start to finish and couldn’t do enough for us! It was great to learn about the mythology and history of Amalfi Coast. Myself and my boyfriend had the best time swimming and enjoying the fun atmosphere with music and Limoncello. Could not recommend the company enough. With all the trouble 2020 has brought to so many we felt so lucky and so grateful to be here. The company even looked after my shoes after I left them on the boat!! Thank you so much!

      Must do!

      We were looking at boat tours and weren’t sure if over €100 each was going to be worth it. It seriously was!!!! There were 8 of us (4 couples) on the boat, with lots of room. Very modern boat too. We all sat on the front deck, which had fitted cushions so it was super comfortable, and enough room to recline. We swam 3 times, and had 2 stops in the towns. The last swim we stopped and were able to swim to a beach that was only accessible by boat so it was just ours for those 30mins which was lovely! It was great, so worth it. There was a driver and a guide, the guides english was good. We were just enjoying the views and she would pop over and tell us little bit of information about the different towns which was really nice, it was the perfect balance. Unfortunately no prosecco because of the sharing and COVID but there were beers water and cokes on board as well as a sandwich on board. We would really recommend this trip, it is so worth it.

      Great tour

      The tour was great. We had two swim stops and plenty of time in each of the ports (Amalfi e Positano 1hr 30mins each). The boat was a good size for the group and very comfortable with all of the cushions up front. The guide Francesca & the captain Mikele were brilliant, very informative and looked after us well. Couldn’t have asked for anything more!

      Worth every penny - brilliant day out

      I would recommend everyone to go on this tour, it may seem expensive but trust me you come away happy with every penny you spend. Our tour guides were Francesca and Nello who were simply wonderful, Francesca was very good to take lots of photos and knew a lot about the area. We had lots of free time to swim and explore the areas of Positano and Amalfi. On top of this they provided some tasty sandwiches, fruit, beer (and soft drinks too!) throughout the day. The fruit is particularly nice to have after swimming in the salty sea. I came away from the tour feeling like we had enough time to soak it all up and thoroughly enjoy the day and wished we could have Francesca and Nello on our other tours too!

      Amazing Experience!

      Amazing!!! We booked a last minute trip from Sorrento to Positano and Amalfi by boat. We were on board with about 8 other passengers and had a wonderful time. Andreas, our driver was very attentive, and showed us several local swimming holes, caves and other hidden gems between Sorrento and Amalfi. Highly recommend this trip. We did it as a family of 5 with a 1 year old and it was perfect!

      Wonderful & safe

      The tour was fantastic. The guides, Marco & Andrea were very welcoming and informative. We had plenty of time to explore Amalfi & Positano and the caprese sandwich supplied for lunch was an added bonus. My main worry when booking this tour was regarding social distancing, I had no need to be concerned, all transport to & from the port was well organised and not crowded at all. There was only one other couple on the boat tour and they sat at the back of the boat and we sat at the front, it felt very safe. Temperatures were checked and everyone wore masks when in fairly close proximity to one another. I really can’t thank the tour operator enough for what they managed to provide during an extremely difficult time for the travel industry. I wish them all the best and would encourage people not to hesitate bookIng this trip based on the wonderful service we received.

      I can’t recommend this tour enough. It was an amazing and easy way to visit Positano and Amalfi on the same day. The boat was comfortable and clean. We had plenty of opportunities to swim and refresh during the day and the snacks and drinks were also great! Our guide, Roberta, was very nice and super helpful taking pictures and making sure our day was fun!

      100% Amazing

      Had the best day ever with Francesca and Mimmo on a boat trip along the Amalfi Coast on Sunday 16th August 2020. There was about 13 of us on the boat and everyone really got on well and engaged fully. As a solo traveller the day started off great as realised the Skipper was Mimmo as I had the good luck to travel with him and his mate Dominique the previous Friday to Capri another great trip and they took very good care of me as I was the only one who could not speak Italian. Both trips were great but the Amalfi one definitely stood out for me. Francesca was a joy as was Mimmo, there was lots of swimming and singing and dancing on the boat and drinks and snacks were constantly on the go. I could not recommend this boat trip enough, it definitely was the highlight of my holiday. Thank you Francesca and Mimmo love from the Irish solo female traveller Honor xx

      Relaxing, beautiful boating day <3

      I had an amazing boating day with the You Know! crew! I signed up for the trip that went to Almalfi and Positano from Sorrento - and I'm so glad I did. The crew was SO inviting and they had drinks and snacks to surely last the whole day (plus a good lunch). Our group was shown areas along the coast with beautiful view, secret beaches, refreshing swims, and free time to roam around both towns. All in all, it really made my trip to Sorrento and I would HIGHLY recommend having a boating day with these guys!

      Great day

      alex r
      Pick up was smooth.Once we got to our boat things really took off. Nicola was our captain, he was extremely interested in us having a great day. He would stop the boat and explain things to us, laughing and smiling throughout the day. We stopped on the way to Amalfi for a quick swim, then to Amalfi for an hour, Positano for an hour, he took us to a restaurant that can only be accessed by boat (it was awesome), back for another swim, a couple surprise stops (I won't ruin those for you) and back to the dock. He let us pick what we wanted to do and helped us schedule our day. We ended up coming back almost an hour late because we were having so much fun, nobody had a schedule, and Nicola wanted us to have a great day. He served drinks several times including a prosecco and limoncello ay the end. It was a long day on a boat, but it was truly a fantastic day.

      What an amazing way to see the Amalfi coast! The hosts were lovely, very informative and couldn’t do enough for us. The stops in Amalfi and Positano were lovely, as were the stops we made to go swimming. Would 100% recommend this trip to others.

      Best day of our vacation

      This was hands down the best part of our vacation! We were a group of 9, that included two young children. Lisa was incredibly helpful in planning the day, she was quick to respond to emails and offered great advice for our itinerary. We can’t thank Federico and Giacomo enough for such a fantastic day! They made all nine members of our group feel like they were royalty. They were hospitable and couldn’t do enough to make sure we had a great time and felt safe - Federico was an amazing captain. Federico and Giacomo, who are local to the Amalfi area, knew the best spots to go, and had the best limoncello we had in Italy. Would highly recommend!
