To know more about your boat trip...

The Island of Capri is located in the Gulf of Naples, just a few miles from Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. The island is 10 square kilometers large and is divided into two municipalities: Capri and Anacapri. The center of Capri develops around the Piazzetta, about 150 meters above the sea level. Anacapri is located higher up, at 275 meters above the sea level. Directly on the sea you will find two places: Marina Grande (where the Port is located) and Marina Piccola (on the opposite side of the Port, where the Faraglioni are located). To get from the Port of Marina Grande to the center of Capri the most convenient and fastest way is the funicular: the ticket office is on the right hand side of the hydrofoils' arrival pier. Instead, to get from Marina Grande directly to Anacapri, you have to take the bus from the port.


It takes approximately 40 minutes to arrive to the Island of Capri from Piano di Sorrento.

      Fantastic boat ride to Capri from Sorrento

      We had a great boat ride from Sorrento to Capri with our guide Francesca and skipper Tomasso. It was a rainy day but the two made sure we all stayed dry and were comfortable. There was a cool surprise Prosecco moment with corny love music :) For lunch we got a yummy Caprese sandwich and later on also Limoncello. We couldn’t enter the Blue Grotto due to the high tides but this gives us another reason to come back. On the island we booked a private bus tour for 15€ directly through Francesca and we explored Anacapri and Capri within 3-4 hours. I would recommend this tour when you only have 1 day for Capri as you pretty much see everything in 1 day.

      The highlight of our trip

      nina w
      Touring Capri island through a semi-private boat is the absolutely best way to tour the island. Our tour guide Rossela was super friendly and attentive. We toured the entire island and got to swim in the Mediterranean sea. On the way back from the boat trip, we enjoyed the sunset from the boat. It is the highlight of our entire trip in Italy.

      The Highlight of our Italian Adventure!

      I can't say enough great things about this experience. From the beautiful coastal cliffs, to the majestic Blue Grotto, to the lovers' archway, to Capri and Anacapri... it was an experience of a lifetime that my wife and I will cherish always! Francesca and Nello were perfect guides, Francesca was packed with fascinating information about the coast, towns and history, she was quick to offer great suggestions for sites to visit when in Capri and Anacapri, and I can't say enough how welcome they made us feel, they treated us like old friends. When we went through the lovers' archway Francesca shared an anecdote about a superstition that couples who kiss under the arch will be together forever, so of course naturally my wife and I kissed under the archway, then Francesca was quick to open up a bottle of Prosecco to share, followed by a lovely swim along the coast. It was such a perfect day, I can't recommend this tour enough! Grazie mille!

      Wonderful day cruise to Capri

      What a great way to spend our first day around the Sorrento Peninsula! If you too love the water and have not yet been to this part of Italy the crystal clear, beautiful blue waters are not to be missed. Our tour with You Know! was arranged through Rita at Palazzo Marziale (grazie Rita!) and included round trip transport between the hotel and marina. After check-in at the marina host/guide Guisifin escorted us to our boat where skipper Tommaso helped our party on board. The tour included the Faraglioni rocks, the white, green and blue grottos (Blue grotto unavailable due to tide), a swim outside the green grotto and a four hour layover in Capri. The tour included music, ample soft drinks, beer, wine and a limoncello toast on the way back to port. Tommaso was an expert skipper throughout our tour and very skilled at maneuvering his boat - the grottos get crowded! Our friendly hostess Giusi provided insights and history throughout the trip working hard to give our entire tour group her attention. Together Giusi and Tommaso were an outstanding team. We didn't have a plan for our time on Capri and suggest you do so prior to going. We did find Ristorante Panorama for a delicious meal with a beautiful view across the bay. All in all a great trip - highly recommended. Grazie Tommaso, Giusi and You Know!

      Giusy and Mimmo were very fun

      At first we were concerned because our van picked us up in Sorrento and made several stops after that. It seemed like we went a long way. However, once aboard we had a blast! Giusi was the first mate, I suppose you would call it. She was more like a charming hostess, offering drinks and pointing out highlights. Gorgeous girl!! Mimmo was a great captain. I would have liked more than 4 hours on Capri, but all in all it was a great day!

      Relaxed, friendly and a full day

      Glenn H
      We were blessed with a fine day, calmish water and an uncrowned boat. Then we also had our Captain Thomas and his “lovely assistant”. A full day leaving from Sorrento with a jolly around Capri in and out of grottos and arches then for a 4hour drop off in Capri. The finish to a wonderful day was when a pod of dolphins surfaced to greet us on our return to port. Just do it. We were guests not merely the latest in a long line of tourists.

      Great way to see Capri

      We did a day trip from Sorrento to Capri with this company, it was a great experience and we were glad we decided against taking the main ferry and went on a smaller boat with about 10 people. We travelled around the coast, stopping for a quick swim and snorkel at one point. We then were dropped at Marina Piccolo and given 4 hours to explore Capri. We walked up the steps, took about 20minutes, it felt longer in the heat or there is a bus you can get for 1.80 euro. Along the main section we found a nice restaurant for lunch, amazing view looking over the water. We then looked at shops, used the local maps to walk around and see the other sites. The return journey on the boat, was a little bumpy with the weather but we felt safe and we had a glass of wine and lemoncello to finish as we pulled into the harbour. It was a lovely day, staff were friendly. There was a bit of waiting around at the wharf at start of day which was frustrating but once we got going it was amazing on the water.

      If we had another day in Capri, we would absolutely do this same tour again. The team knew all of the best places around the island and were always making sure everyone was having a good time. My favorite part was snorkeling through a series of sea caves, one of which had a hole in the ceiling that let light in and made the whole place glow. The experience was incredible as it was, but they went above and beyond by letting us change our reservation when we had car trouble the day we were supposed to go and couldn’t make it. They told us that we were welcome to come the next day at no extra charge. Really amazing customer service and really a magical experience. I wish we could have stretched this out into an entire day! There was literally nothing that could have made this better.

      Best Day ever.. going to Capri

      Francesca and Nello were our amazing guides. Nello was driving the boat all aroud Capri and the grottes. Good work Nello chapeau! Francesca did a great job by telling us what we were looking at and giving background information. We were on the boat for a good 4 hours and having a lot of fun. There was good music on the boat and we have got a lunch so we could spent our time on the island. We visited Annacapri (with the cablecar) and Capri itself. Amazing views! We were given drinks during our ride along Capri and had Prosecco and romantic music when we passed through the Rock of Love. When the sun was going down we were drinking Limoncello until we arrived in Sorrento and had the best day ever. We loved this tour! Thanks to Francesca and Nello. Highly is worth it.

Roberta and Nello were fanatastic too, so glad to have them as our guide and captain. Very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly and definitely went the extra mile to ensure everyone on board was looked after! 10/10, would recommend this trip!

      Best day of our Honeymoon

      This boat tour was absolutely amazing, hands down the best day of our honeymoon! Our guide Francesca was so lovely and knowledgable and really made sure to include everyone on board in explaining different areas. Our captain was a gentleman and so happy all of the time! We were brought to all the little grottos around Capri with the exception of the Blue Grotto, which were were aware of. We didn’t feel we missed out on anything not doing this so don’t put yourself under pressure to see it as the other more easily accessible grottos are fabulous! We were dropped off at Capri were a private bus collected us. Francesca arranged this for us and it was an additional €15 per person. In my opinion the bus is a necessity as it would be very difficult to make your own way around the island. We were given 4 hours to explode Capri which was enough for us! Then we hopped back on board for more adventures and drinks before returning to Sorrento. I cannot recommend this tour enough, it was so well organised and it really made our honeymoon!

      Capri is a must-see and arriving there by boat will make your day!

      The boat is meticulously clean, very comfortable and safe. The route is excellent. And Roberta is by far the best host you can imagine! She is easy going, very friendly, knows the area very well and makes your stay on the boat basically perfect. Can highly recommend this tour!

      Wonderful Boad Ride to Capri

      We had a wonderful Ride to Capri with the Skipper Nello and the Guide Francesca. Capri is a beautiful island an our Guide and Skipper did a great job by telling a lot of interesting facts about it and made it a fun and special day for us. We had enough time to walk around in Capri, had the chance to swim in the ocean near the island and also enjoyed the food and drinks on board. If you plan to visit Capri, we recommend this tour.

      Perfect tour !

      It was a perfect trip. The guide Federico was so friendly and respected every wish we had on this tour. The whole tour was one of the most beautiful experiences we had. First they pick up us in Sorrento and we drove to Capri, then we visited the whole island around and had the option to go swimming in the clear blue water then we get snacks and drinks. After that we visited the rest of the island in the boat and he left us in the Marina grande to visit Capri. (before that he showed us the hotspots and gave a card for the island). We were a small group of people and everyone was so nice! The guide took time for everyone to take beautiful pictures. Thank you for that experience - really recomendable and worth the money !

      Best start to the holiday with amazing hosts

      We loved every minute of our boat trip to Capri! Alexandro was a fantastic host who looked after everyone and provided information throughout the experience. Food and drinks were provided throughout and it was very special that we could get a picture to announce to our friends that we are having a baby early 2021. Highly recommend Alex to look after all your needs and what a skipper Federico was! To drive us into some of the coves was seriously impressive!! A great day to explore the sea and gorgeous Capri!

      One not to be missed

      This tour was a well organised and overall amazing day. After the trip getting cancelled due to bad weather, i was text and able to reschedule the trip to better suit the weather and our Italy plans. Alex and our skipper were both amazing and so informative, they ensured safety were a priority especially due to COVID, they told us the boat was sanitised three times a day before we got on, after we docked in Capri and after we left the boat to go home. The highlight was definitely getting to swim In the crystal clear water and the panoramic views from the boat. I am so happy we booked this trip and would highly recommend Alex and the rest of the team at you know for anyone considering doing a trip to Capri!

      YouKnow! It was a blast!

      There wasnt a favourite part as it was all fabulous! This was an excellent value for money day out with great people who became great friends over the day! Francesca and Mimmo our guide and captain were super fun and were very experienced and they made the day truly entertaining. The boat was fab...very clean and well appointed and it sped across the bay to Capri with ease. Loved the music! Snacks and food were lovely and there was Prosecco wine and beer as well as soft dtinks. Swimming off the boat was fun and we went into the grottos. Good info and help from Francesca about Capri and 4 hours on the island at our leisure...good idea to have the private bus so you see Ana Capri and the main town. Limoncello on the way back! A fabulous day for any age group...12 people on board of all ages...Im 65 and it was the best day ever! Life is too short...enjoy it!

      Amazing trip day with fantastic people

      It was a great day, with good people. We had a great time, a special thanks goes to Mimmo and Francesca, who spoiled us in every way possible and imaginable. Capri as always spectacular, as well as the company we found. We ate and drank a lot, in fact when the tour ended, we were sad to be returning home. I highly recommend taking this tour and meeting Mimmo and Francesca. It will be surely an amazing day.

      Fabulous Capri Boat Trip

      We enjoyed a fantastic boar trip with 3 other travellers to Capri with these guys and were looked after so well the whole day. The gorgeous Roberta and her Captain “Mimmo” were the perfect combination and delivered great service, a fantastic itinary and a lots of fun. Swimming opportunities in beautiful crystal clear blue water coves and caverns, plus some not on the agenda stops to see the sights around Capri. Well organised and when on Capri it was seamless going from the port up to Anacapri and back again with plenty time to look around and enjoy the sights as well as lunch. Would recommend this trip to anyone wanting a small group tour so no hordes fighting for spots on the boat and the added bonus is you get to meet and enjoy the company of the beautiful Roberta and her captain. Thanks again guys, we enjoyed a fabulous trip and made some wonderful memories xx

      Brilliant full day!

      We really enjoyed our day with Roberta and Federico! The whole experience was very well organised including the transfers from our hotel which were included. We were picked up at 9.30am and the tour started very promptly after we arrived. There were only a few people on our boat (we had booked the small group trip) and there was lots of space to lie out and relax. The boat was beautiful, clean and well maintained, it had a platform at the back (with some steps) which made getting back on board after swimming easy! Roberta was friendly, attentive and a great hostess. Federico was a great captain, he took us into these tiny caves and grottos and showed us some wonderful swimming spots! There is a perfect amount of time in Capri, long enough to take the chairlift to the top of Monte Solaro and explore both anacapri and Capri. It was great value and we couldn’t have asked for more - would highly recommend booking.

      The way to spend a day

      What an amazing way to spend your day. At first we had some trouble choosing a tour because there are so many available. But we definitely made the right choice! These guys are really passionate about what they do and that resonates in the way they take care of their guests. They provide the tour with really nice sandwiches ( in our case is was a caprese sandwich) drinks and snacks. What makes this trip extra special is due to the ‘smaller’ ship they can take you to the caves and you are also allowed to swim in them. All under the supervision of the very attentive host Alex.

      Brilliant Boat Excursion

      This was a brilliant trip, and the company should promote some of their features better than they do, as they certainly undersell themselves. I am not a great traveller, and I was worried if the boat would be good, would it have a good guide, does it have a toilet in case someone is ill etc etc. The boat was perfect and it had everything. I didnt need to worry! Our Skipper was Raffael and the guide was Elisabelia. He was a brilliant skipper and she was the perfect guide. What a trip. My daughter and her friend are 15 and a tough crowd to please at the best of times. They didnt stop smiling from the time they got onto the boat until hours after we got off. It was the highlight of our holiday. The boat was fantastic. The sights were amazing and we were all looked after well. There were 8 of us on the trip in 3 groups and felt really safe. For lunch we were given an amazing Caprese sandwich. It was flipping delicious and we didnt expect it. We just thought we get the usual crisps and nuts. This was a full on, wonderful sandwich made fresh. We were offered beers, sodas, water and then a lovely limoncillo to finish our voyage. So would we recommend this trip? Yes yes yes and yes again. Definitely worth the money. And if you get the chance to go into the Blue Grotto caves then do it. An incredible experience. So to Raffael and Elisabelia I say a huge THANK YOU. And to you I say, dont come to the area of Sorrento without seeking out YOU KNOW! Boat Tours. Simply brilliant.

      Perfect trip

      Everything about this trip was perfect. From the timely pick-up and drop-off which no other company could offer (as we were staying on the edge of Vico Equense) to the quality of boat, skipper and host. Alex was fantastic - I’m A pretty poor swimmer and he really helped me get full value from the trip at the two special swimming stops - I always felt safe and fully enjoyed both experiences without stress or worries. That’s all down to the quality of service he provided. The boat skipper was clearly an expert in riding the waves and manoeuvring the boat. The transport on Capri was well-organized and all on-time. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone looking to go on the Capri tour. Many thanks to all concerned.

      Absolutely Incredible

      Absolutely loved the day! Our skipper Alexander Raf was fantastic, Ex Italian Navy and completely professional throughout the day, if we needed a snack or a drink it was already in your hand! He looked after all of us as if we were his own crew and made the tour what it was. I also took my drone and was able to get incredible pictures with it, they also stopped the boat when I needed to land it and did not hesitate about anything. All in all an amazing day and highly recommended. The skipper and the pilot were both lovely, funny, ecstatic and most of all caring. Couldn't ask for more from a trip! Thank you very much guys!

      Amazing Experience Hosted by Fabulous Staff

      Kelly C
      My partner and I booked this tour through our hotel so didn't know what the setup would be but it definitely did not disappoint. We arrived at the port, got booked in and told our group number. When our number was called we were greeted and helped on to boat by Rossella and Captain Raffi. There were six couples on our boat and each set of couples were a different nationality which I thought was a nice change. From the very start we were made to feel very at ease and very relaxed. Rossella came and sat with us all and pointed out and talked about all the sites and amazing scenery which was very interesting and just so beautiful. We had a choice of wine. beer and prosecco and there was no shortage in supplies, light snacks of crisps and nuts were also included, which complimented the alcohol. We got to stop off and swim for a while (Captain and his mate also jumped in for a dip) before driving a little further (drying off in meantime) and then headed to Capri where we got a few hours to ourselves to explore the island and also Anacapri. Rossella gave us great tips to get around the island and how to make best use of our time. After leaving Capri we were heading back and got to stop off to see the locals cliff diving which was great. Overall this trip was amazing and one I would definitely recommend. Met Rossella two days later at the port where we were going on another boat trip and she came and said hello which I thought was a lovely gesture

      Capri Boat Experience

      The highlight of our holiday, a personal and professional service rarely seen these days; most excursion companies just keep trying to up-sell at every opportunity. The Group Lead (Alex) spends valuable time at the start to listen and understand all the groups different cultural and personal needs, a group of 13 people from different countries who’ve never met before; clearly the sign of a very experienced leader. The time spent at the start made the whole group bond and create a wonderful environment, no matter of language or age. My wife and I had a great trip and will always remember the exclusive trip to the “special cave”, off the normal track so very quiet and relaxing.

      One of the highlights of our vacation - a wonderful day!

      Our day was just perfect! Josie and Mimmo where the best- gave us all the information we needed for our visit on Capri and Ana-Capri. It was a beautiful day in the Sorrento bay, the yacht was so comfortable, and after we had our free time to go around, the captain took us to a tour around the island. We finished the tour with a glass of cold limoncello- just perfect!

      Highlight of our Italian Odyssey

      John F
      We were collected from Hotel Plazza at 9.30 am and bused to the port of a nearby village to join other fellow travelers. We were part of a group of 12 people allocated to boat 5, Captained by Mimmo and with Patrick as his very helpful and able assistant. Between MImmo’s timely “Lemoncello time” calls and Patrick’s historical and interesting stories, our visit to the various beautiful coves, waterfall, small blue lagoon, swimming in the beautiful clear waters of Capri and back off the coast of Sorrento, snacks and beers, not to mention the friendship and fun we had with our fellow travelers, all made for a fantastic day. We had 3 or 4 hours to explore the joys of Capri, before “Lemoncello time” and a final swim. Very good value for money and a truly great time had, enhanced in no small way by Mimmo and Patrick on boat 5. Highly recommended.
