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

      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!

      Amazing day!

      We ported from Sorrento and went to the island of Capri for the day! We had Luisa our guide and Salvatore, our captain! It was honestly so fun and down to earth. Luisa told us all about the island and its history and Salvatore knew exactly how to maneuver the boat so we could see the caves; also very kind/friendly and knowledgeable! They were both so fun and it made the journey there and back even more worth it all! We’d do it again if we came back!! Ciao!

      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 recommended..it is worth it.
