Depart from Sorrento on board a comfortable boat for a day of relaxation, discovering two beautiful islands in the Gulf of Naples: Ischia, the so-called “Green Island” for its lush vegetation, a beautiful spa resort, rich in bays and dream beaches, and Procida, recently chosen as Italian Capital of Culture 2022, which enchants visitors with its vibrant colors and its unspoiled natural beauty. You can relax under the sun, dive from the boat and snorkel in the clear waters, but also spend some free time both in Ischia and Procida, exploring the two characteristic villages by land.

Tour program of the Ischia and Procida boat trip from Sorrento:

  • Meet your driver at 08:15 am at the Parking Achille Lauro, in Via Correale 25, Sorrento and transfer to the port of Piano di Sorrento.
  • During the boat ride from Sorrento along the Gulf of Naples, you will see in the distance the small island of Nisida, the Phlegraean Fields, up to Capo Miseno, the extreme point of the Phlegrean peninsula.
  • Upon arrival in Ischia, we will start the tour from the Maronti beach, the longest on the island (almost 3 km); then we will stop at the Green Cave, an incredible natural cave carved into the rock, inside which the light, reflecting into the water, creates a play of colors and shades of green. Right here we will stop to swim and snorkel, before heading to the Aragonese Castle, the symbol of the island in the world: a majestic fortress that stands on a huge rock, connected to the East side of the island by a bridge of 220 meters.
  • We will, then, stop at the port of Ischia for 3 or 4 hours of free time, in which you can explore the island on your own, maybe on board one of the iconic microtaxis (three-wheeled Apecar), a fun and unique way of touring Ischia and discover the main points of interest.
  • The tour continues towards Procida. While sailing around the island, we will stop to admire: the islet of Vivara; Terra Murata with the former prison of Palazzo d’Avalos; Marina di Corricella, a wonderful village famous worldwide for its multicolored houses; the bay of Chiaiozza and much more. Also in Procida, we will stop for a swim in one of the many bays along the coast.
  • In Procida, you will have 1 or 2 hours of free time to visit the island by land in total autonomy.
  • Finally, we will leave Procida and return to Sorrento, with the final limoncello tasting.
  • Upon return to the port of Piano di Sorrento, the driver will take you back to the original meeting point.

To know more about your boat trip...

The history of Procida is as old as the times. There are three major islands in the Gulf of Naples: Capri, Ischia and Procida. Procida is the smallest (only 4 square km), but it was the first to be inhabited. Procida is the Island of culture, tranquillity and mystery. With its slow rhythms, far from the mundanity and chaos of the nearby islands, it is the destination for lovers of simplicity, tradition and peace. Procida excites, inspires, enchants. Even from a distance, when the port of Marina Grande is barely visible, the first thing that is discovered in Procida is the colorful set of houses. Yellow, blue, red, orange, white: a rainbow that welcomes the traveler on this little island, not very touristy and so extraordinarily authentic. The beauty of Procida is all here: fishermen, blue sea and boats, lemons, hills, small villages lost in time. On the square of the port you will find the bus and taxi stop, as well as bars and restaurants, while on the left is Via Roma, the commercial and tourist heart of Procida. Terra Murata, with the majestic Palazzo d'Avalos, is instead the historic core of Procida and is located at the center of the island almost 90 meters above sea level. This village takes its name from the walls that surround it, built in the 16th century to protect the population from attacks by sea. Procida is an island full of beaches, bays and inlets: most can be reached on foot or by bus while some can only be discovered by sea. Near Procida, connected by a bridge, there is another small island, Vivara, currently uninhabited and used as a nature reserve. To protect the landscape and the marine environment of these magnificent places, the Marine Protected Area "Kingdom of Neptune" was established in 2007 and it surrounds Ischia, Procida and Vivara. This area is home to the most important colony of dolphins in the Mediterranean and is rich in archaeological finds scattered on the seabed just off the coast of Procida.

      A beautiful and relaxing day!

      From the moment we met the crew, I felt we were in good hands. They told us fascinating stories about the history and culture of the islands. On Ischia, the highlight for me was visiting a local pottery shop and seeing the artisans at work. The time spent snorkelling in the secluded bays was refreshing and peaceful. The atmosphere of the fishing village and the slow pace of Procida made it easy to relax. The boat was well stocked with delicious snacks and cool drinks, perfect on a hot day.

      The tour was well-organized, and I appreciated the small group size which made the experience intimate and personalized. I loved swimming in the clear, turquoise waters off Ischia and relaxing on the sun-soaked deck. Procida was enchanting, and I enjoyed a leisurely lunch at a seaside restaurant. The boat ride back was serene, with the sun setting and a glass of limoncello in hand.

      Our day trip to Ischia and Procida was simply wonderful. Swimming in the clear waters near the Green Caveotta was a highlight, and the view of the historic Aragonese Castle from the sea was fascinating. We enjoyed the free time to explore the islands at our own pace. Procida's picturesque streets and lively houses were a photographer's dream. The whole trip was well organised and enjoyable and the skipper's knowledge of the area added so much to the experience.

      Relaxing day on the water

      This trip was awesome. Boat driver was the best. Plenty of time on both stops with plenty of information. Procida seemed like a quaint little fishing district and ischia a little more commercialized. Your company was great and well organized
