To know more about your boat trip...

The Blue Grotto is Capri's most famous attraction: people from all over the world come to see it even for a few minutes. It is 25 meters wide and 60 meters long with an entrance less than a meter high. As a matter of fact, to enter it you have to lie on the bottom of a rowboat that slides through the small arch. Inside we find ourselves floating in the dark, on a water so blue that it seems transparent. The blue color of the cave is given by the light of the sun that enters through a submarine window that opens exactly under the entrance gate, thus undergoing a filtration by the water, which absorbs the red and lets the blue go . The entrance fee is payable exclusively on the spot at the floating box office anchored at the entrance of the cave (and only in cash). Unfortunately, in the summer you need to queue for hours to do the boat ride inside, which lasts only about 5 minutes. It is very important to know that swimming is strictly forbidden and during the visit there is no way to swim. Swimming, apart from being illegal, is very dangerous: the entrance is low and narrow and just a little higher wave can make you finish with the head against the rock. To highlight that the Blue Grotto is subject to closure because of the wind and the rough sea that make it impossible to enter. You can access it in two ways: by sea (far preferable) and by land.


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

      Tour half-day to Capri

      Bruce GH.
      We chose this half-day tour to Capri as we did not want to lose time visiting the island by land, but just do a relaxing boat tour all around it. We had an amazing experience that I cannot recommend enough! The skipper was fun and the group we were with had a lovely time too. We had time to swim just before the white grotto and then again around the famous Faraglioni. After a good lunch with a delicious sandwich and some beers, we started the way back to the pier of Piano where the driver was waiting for us to take us back to the Hotel. Just fantastic!

      Perfect amount of time

      Joseph J.Jr.
      Perfect amount of time to see Capri and its beautiful grottos by sea. Received snacks, a sandwich and plenty of drinks during the 4 hour trip. Skipper Salvatore and Roberta were just amazing and good fun. I strongly suggest it, well done!


      Excellent boat trip. Boat itself was very clean and modern. Skipper and guide were great: they made sure we saw everything and gave plenty of information around the island of Capri. The sandwich was unexpectedly good and drinks were plentiful. Good amount of time for the swim stops in great places around Capri where the water was just breathtaking!

      The "You Know ! Boat Service " trip 2021

      From the very beginning of the trip, the vibe was absolutely ENERGETIC thanks to Ms. Roberta and Mr. Nello! It totally exceeded my expectations and beyond. Upon my return home, I will spread the good word about "You Know! -Boat Service". Thank you Ms. ROBERTA ! Thank you Mr. Nelson. Amén

      Above and beyond

      Me and my wife decided to go for the 4 hours boat tour. It was spectacular and a memorable experience. Swimming by the Capri coast was definitely a highlight. The boat crew Luisa and Luca were a gem. They provide food and drink and of course limoncello and Prosecco. I highly recommend it. They pick you up and drop you to your hotel and will give you the best experience

      Boats, and Water, and Capri - oh my!

      It was a day filled with beautiful views, clean water to swim in, and a fun crew with Roberta as our host and guide. It was a small group and everyone was friendly. I highly recommend this tour and crew - but remember, you are on a boat, so you will want to be the type of person that enjoys boat rides :)

      Fun times in Capri

      We are so glad we could see so many parts of what Capri and Sorrento had to offer on this boat trip! We loved swimming in the crisp blue water and eating delicious caprese sandwiches on the boat. We had an amazing experience!!!

      A good tour for water lovers - Perfect amount of time and a truly complete water experience

      it was a great experience. Francesca the tour guide provides detailed information and a touch of history (which I never had with previous tour in the same area). Even Mattia, the skipper, was very nice and accommodating. Drinks and snacks were also included and a light lunch (sandwich and a dessert). This too was also much better than my previous experiences where I got at the most a drink. I strongly suggest this tour.

      Highly recommended

      We had a great time ! Luca and Nello we’re really the best guide and captain we could‘ve asked for. Luca shared interesting facts about the area with us, while being so humorous. The captain was also really caring for all the passengers and did a great job ! We can only recommend this experience !

      Best boat tour of Capri for the money

      We had an excellent time on the boat tour with Luca and Nello. Everything went perfect from the meeting point to the explanation of the sites to the delicious sandwiches. I was truly amazed at our skipper’s (Nello) boating skills. He was able to back into the grottos with incredible precision.

      Great boat trip!

      Our tour guide Alex was great, so so friendly and very helpful. My girlfriend was not feeling well at the time (too much drinking) and Alex really made her feel at ease. The views of Capri from the boat were stunning. Only negative is that I wanted to stay on the boat for longer!

      Great service and a nice day on the sea

      We did the half day tour with a 2.5years old child. It was really fun, the boat personnel (Francesca and Tommaso) helped us with everything. The tour offers a half day visit around Capri, only on boat, with some stops to swim. The coast, Capri and the sea is breathtaking, so if you want to spend some relaxing hours on water, this is something for you.

      Best ever boat trip due to Federico & Roberta

      Best boat ride ever ! It was a very nice boat with sundeck to easily relax and enjoy the beautiful environment, while making some stops to swim into the spectacular caves. More important is that our crew Federico and Roberta made this trip unforgettable ; they are very social, interested and open to the people on the boat and, as locals, provide interesting and valuable insights into the beautiful surroundings - speaking perfectly English ! We were with 3 friends (7 people in total on the boat) and will never forget this experience - can highly recommend and ask for Federico and Roberta !

      Don’t miss out on this Fun & Swim tour!

      We were very happy with the whole experience! The service and the staff were great but Roberta and Raffaele were superb host and skipper! We had so much fun on the boat, during the tour, while swimming. It is something to not miss! Thank you again to Roberta and Raffaele for the amazing experience!

      Fantastic experience

      The tour was a complete surprise from the beginning to the end: an unexpected stop at the Blue Grotto, a curious swim at the Grotta della finestrella and a romantic moment at the Faraglioni. Roberta and Raffaele, the hostess and the captain, were the best in making me feeling welcomed on board and taking a very good care of each moment of the tour. Fantastic experience.

      Highlight of our trip to Sorrento!

      The highlight of our trip to Sorrento - the ~4 hour trip was absolutely fantastic. The crew were great, as were the included food/beverages. The various swimming stops were amazing, with plenty of time at each and no feeling of being rushed at all. Well worth the money, and very easy to organise.

      An amazing trip

      We had a fantastic time on board with our host Francesca and skipper Michele! We stopped at beautiful swimming spots, had plenty of great snacks and drinks and were given lots of interesting information about the coastline of sorrento and the island of Capri. Would definitely recommend this trip- it’s worth the price!

      Enjoyed the swim stops around Capri

      This was definitely the highlight of our trip to Sorrento. The crew were absolutely fantastic and very friendly (without being too overly friendly), and the included food/beverage was great too. The stops for swimming were a real highlight - we were given plenty of time to enjoy them, and did not feel rushed at all. A fantastic half day out, and well worth the money spent.

      First class

      The trip was absolutely first class from start to finish. Picked up from hotel in a spotless new Mercedes Vito People carrier, arrived at the port and was welcomed to a lovely clean great looking boat. Francesca was our host for the day along with Thommas the captain. They were both absolutely fantastic and a credit to the company. Thanks to you both. Can’t highly recommend this company and trip enough.

      Amazing way to spend 4 hours

      My boyfriend and I had an amazing time with Roberta and Rafaele! We did the 4 hour tour and it felt like we had hired a private boat with the amount of attention we received. We also got plenty of time to swim and relax (and eat and drink!) highly recommend!!

      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!

      We had an incredible time on our trip and Mimmo and Francesca were both welcoming and knowledgeable. We found the small group size really added to the experience and helped it feel very personal.

      AWESOME trip! We loved this tour!

      Jodi L
      This was a great day trip! We are a family of four (2 boys 18 & 19) and we all had a wonderful experience on this cruise around Capri. Lucia and Federico were the BEST hosts and made the day all that more fun! They pointed out different things as we passed them, took us to see some really pretty colors of water, and we went swimming. We also found a tube floating in the sea and we tied it to the boat and we were able to go tubing! It was great! There was plenty to drink and while the boat was big, it wasn't over crowded with too many people which made it all the better! I would definitely recommend this trip and would do it again if I were to come back to visit! Thanks for a great day on the water!

      A great 4 hour boat trip from Sorrento around Capri with swimming.

      Did tour of Sorrento coast and around Capri. Picked up by minibus at centre of Massa Lubrense. Taken to port. Short wait for other pickups to arrive. 12 passengers on comfy boat with skipper and guide. Stopped at quiet spot (if that's possible) for swim (snorkel gear supplied), snack (nuts/crisps/biscuits or bread bites) and a drink (beer, coke, water or lemonade). Lots of small colourful fish to see Visited a few grottos (not blue one on this trip). Stopped for another swim just by Massa Lubrense coast, too deep to see anything. Limoncello taste on way back to Marina Lobra, then transfer back. Pick up 9, on boat about 10.20, back to Marina about 4 hours later and immediate transfer back. Great day if you didn't want to go onto Capri (we didn't, but other trips offer it). Thanks to Raffy & Jouy for informative and fun trip.

      Best day in Sorrento

      Rebecca F
      We went with our three children ages 7, 11, 13 and we all loved it. The boat was lovely with rear seating and a padded sun deck where we spent the day. It was a beautiful trip, 4 hours was a perfect length as we had time for 2 swims and a slow return along the sorrento coast where those who wanted got a waterfall shower. We went straight to the blue grotto and we all had to decide whether to wait over an hour or skip. None of us were hugely keen so we decided to go for more time actually sailing and swimming. I was rather reluctant to book a boat tour online as there could be a lot of small companies and so lots of fake booking sites. We eventually booked through get your guide and the boat tour group was Your Boat Trip. This was a well organised company who collect and return you to your hotel. We were staying high above sorrento but they still came to get us even although we weren’t strictly in one of the listed areas. Our trip was due to start at 10.30 so we were collected exactly at 9am as promised. We arrived at the port at 10am and had to wait for our boat and others to arrive. We left probably about 10.45am and returned 2.30pm so 4 hours meant 4 hours on the water. I read other reviews which said the time was more hotel to hotel but not with this tour. Our guide was lovely, very friendly with lots of drinks and snacks on offer. First we had a small glass of Prosecco, soft drinks, peroni and limoncello at the end. You should take your own towel but snorkels were provided. Def book if you are unsure. It was a lot of money and no child discount but it was a great day out. If you have time and would prefer to book in person there are stands/shops in the centre of Sorrento where you could book in person. I don’t think you’d get it much cheaper and you may find your preferred slot is booked, however there are so many boats going that I’m sure you’d find something for the next day. Show less

      Excellent day out

      Fantastic day trip. Mimmo and Rosella was our hosts and they were funny, entertaining, friendly and approachable. Nothing was too much trouble. Lots of information given on the tour and helpful local Knowledge. They even email photos of the tour to you that they take themselves. Definitely recommend this trip...take plenty of sun cream.
