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.

      A tour worth every penny!

      I loved every moment of the day. The caves of Capri are a true natural spectacle and the guide's explanations were detailed and truly engaging. The limoncello offered on the way back rounded off an experience that I would highly recommend to anyone.

      My experience on the Capri Fun & Swim tour not have been better

      I was lucky enough to share this experience with some really nice passengers, it was like being with friends! Everything was great: the scenery, the various stops to cool off in the water and the caves, which are truly surreal. With so little time, visiting the places I had always dreamed of in just half a day was all I could ask for. A big thank you to the staff for a fantastic day!

      Incredible half day tour of Capri!

      We explored the coastline and caves with lots of attention from the staff who were welcoming and helpful. It was pure magic to swim in the crystal clear waters. Visiting the Blue Grotto was a breathtaking experience that I will never forget. I highly recommend this tour for the perfect combination of fun and exploration in a short time.

      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
