“Rent your own boat!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

So happy we did this rather than with a guide. You take your own boat around the island. We stopped in all the Grottos, anchored off and went swimming in the most beautiful waters ever. Clear all the way down, warm. We swam under and through caves. Absolutely the best time of the trip. We used Banana Boat right off a dock in the Marina when you first arrive on Capri.

“Green Grotto”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

It is incredible to see the water turn green in this grotto when mostly around Capri the water is a beautiful blue.

“Forget the blue grotta, this is much better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

We easily docked our boat and swam inside the green grotto without any wait. The blue grotto had no access (which i hear is quite common). This was a great experience.

“Good substitute for touristy blue grotto!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

This grotto is much less crowded and you can swim through the grotto rather than pay extra and wait to travel through blue grotto by boat
