“Boat trip to Capri”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Pick up from hotel, lift to La Praia beach, escorted to boat. Extremely knowledgeable and friendly skipper - excellent spoken English. Chose some great cave-swimming locations on return journey from Capri. Thoroughly entertaining trip. Great value too @ €50 pp.

“Best Day Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

Our group of 5 chartered a small boat from La Boa for a day-Raphael was our wonderful captain. He took us everywhere we wanted to go and even showed us special places we didn't know about. Highly recommend seeing Furore and cruising around Capri with stops for swimming off the boat.... bring a picnic or stop for lunch. We had a ball!!

“Capri Tour with La Boa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

We enjoyed our day trip to Capri with this company. We booked through our hotel (Hotel Margherita). The tour was 50Euro (cash only) per person. We departed at 9AM, cruised for almost 1.5 hours admiring the coast on the way to Capri. The captian pointed out areas of interest along the way, speaking both Italian and English. There were 12 people total on the boat. There was plenty of seating for all of us, including a shaded area if you preferred a break from the sun. Once we arrived in Capri, we were given several hours to explore the island independently. As promised, we were picked up promptly at 3PM by the captain. By the time you return to Praiano, you have encircled the entire island of Capri. The captain pointed out several grottos along the way. If you want to visit the blue grotto, you have to buy a seperate ticket in Capri. We did not do this, but if you wanted, you could transfer to a smaller boat to go inside the grotto. We also stopped for swimming along the way back. Water, soft drinks, and homemade cookies were provided.

“Day trip to Capri - great experience for the money!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

We were a bit dubious about these types of trip because there are so many offers to choose from. We had dinner at Marina Di Praia and got chatting to the woman that runs the desk. She is very nice and explained everything well. The cost was cheaper than we had seen previously, so we booked the full trip to Capri for 2 adults and a 2 year old child (125 Euro).

The boat departed on time at 9:00am and a lifejacket was immediately supplied for our toddler. The day was glorious and we had a very pleasant trip to Capri and enjoyed the commentary on the sights as we progressed to the chaos of the Grotto at Capri. The boat was a good size, lots of room and very comfortable, but small enough to get right in to all of the good places! There were 9 guests on the boat.

We were collected on time at 4:00pm and proceded to have a fabulous tour of the coast back to Marina Di Praia, with the addition of some complimentary "refreshments" and home made cake. The mood was great, and we stopped off on the way to see some great sights. All in all very relaxing and enjoyable, highly recommended as a must do on the Amalfi Coast.
