Positano Boats is an hire boats and luxury charter company of the young entrepreneurs from Positano, born from the passion for the sea and a big admiration for the Amalfi Coast. The desire to do much to do and especially the desire to let everyone know the beauty of the Divine Coast, the nostalgia of the amalfitan Dolce vita and the Italian style make this young company truly unique. Kindness, courtesy, customer care and knowledge of the sea are the must.

My two sisters and I used Positano Boats for a day trip to Capri last week from Positano. Our driver was great and very accommodating. We enjoyed the tour of the island before actually getting to Capri. Our boat driver had a convertible cab waiting for us in Capri for when we arrived so we could maximize our time on... More

We took the Positano boat tour from Praino to Capri. Maurizio was our guide/skipper, and he picked us up exactly on time and at our meeting spot. He was an excellent guide, taking us to the sights around Capri and the island. We had such a nice trip and Maurizio was so funny and made the whole day a trip... More

We used the ferry system a lot. We went from Salerno to Amalfi, Sorrento to Positano. & Amalfi. You do not need to charter a private boat. You have the same view from the ferry. You also do not have to do the tours. Between the ferry, train, & bus lines you are set to go.

We rented a boat for a day trip to (and around) and from Capri. The boat was very nice, the captain was great and the views were amazing. You must see the Amalfi Coast from the water and no better way than with Positano Boats. They took us along the coast then to the Blue Grotto, Emerald Grotto, the Faraglioni... More

We had an incredible and informative tour of the Island of Capri. Our captain, Maurizo, was quite engaging, informative, and light-hearted. We enjoyed the Blue Grotto, sight seeing, swim, and time on the Island. Maurizo was attentive to all our needs, encouraged everyone on the boat to partake in the days adventures, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. And ladies, as... More

We arrived in Positano and the beach was looking kind of murky and we saw this tent set up on the main beach renting boats and Stand up Paddle boards. We use stand up paddles boards quite a bit in Hawaii and California and we figured after a day just sitting in the boat circumnavigating Capri it would be more... More

I told her that I wanted to propose on the boat and she planned the perfect day. She responded to my emails extremely quickly answering all my questions, I was staying in Naples (about an hour...

Started 10am and went south along the coast. One wow moment after another purely breathtaking. Chance to swim, eat, drink a little and get to know the other characters on board. Our Captain was Enzo, great job. A must if you are anywhere near here
