A boat trip is certainly a great way to get wonderful views of the stunning Amalfi Coast. We took the boat from just outside Positano and our trip took us all the way around Capri, with ample photo opportunities and a chance for a swim on the way. We had the option of queuing for an hour to get into the Blue Grotto too but fortunately the consensus view was that we extend our time on Capri itself. We had around 4 hours in which to explore the island and we headed up to the Villa Lysis and then the climb up to Villa Jova, Tiberius' residence when on Capri. Both were in stunning locations and well worth visiting. The way back to Positano gave us another opportunity to cool off by taking a dip, which was followed by a free glass of bubbly. All in all the trip was the highlight of our holiday and well worth the 60 euros we paid.
Giovanni was an excellent captain. He piloted the boat with considerable skill and was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly through the trip.
The only dark point of the day was a difficulty encountered when trying to find where to park the car beforehand. We had been directed to a parking area marked with three flag banners but on parking were subjected to a torrent of abuse from a couple of locals who vehemently objected to us parking there. We tried to explain (largely in mime as we didn't speak Italian and they didn't speak English) that we were going on a boat trip but they still threatened to phone the police. The intervention of an English-speaking local and a lot of help from a really helpful lady in the Positano Boats office helped but we still wondered whether the car would be towed away by the time we came back. In spite of this minor setback without a doubt we would thoroughly recommend this full day boat trip to Capri. Great value for money. The skill, knowledge and attentiveness of the skipper was exemplary. The boat was clean, comfortable and appeared to be very well maintained. I must also mention the most helpful English speaking young lady who took our booking and helped us sort out the problem with parking. In all honesty I have to give Positano Boats 10 out of 10 for a truly memorable trip of a lifetime. Thank you again to all those involved.
