This day trip was the HIGHLIGHT from our 4 night stay in Positano. We were so BLESSED to have Mario as our boat captain! He showed us the best swimming spots that included a small grotto prior to our stop in Amalfi. We opted to stay in Amalfi for one hour (def recommend) and then proceeded to a lovely beach restaurant we could only arrive via boat, enjoying some delicious fresh seafood pasta. We stopped in an additional spot to swim on our way back. Throughout our trip he shared the beautiful history and music of Amalfi with his voice and wife (accordion) and treated us at the end with his mother's fresh Limoncello 🥹🍋✨ truly a magical time!

The check-in process, boarding and disembarking all went smoothly. Our guide Luigi was friendly and we could tell he was very experienced: he could maneuver the boat up close (very close we could touch the rock) to caves, forwards and backwards, without a scratch or a bump! Since our group wasn’t interested in queuing for the Emerald Grotto, we decided to go for a swim in a nearby spot instead. Wish we had more swim spots like at the amazing Fiordo di Fiore but at least the boat went into the area. We had a leisurely boat ride to Amalfi, plenty of time once there (3 hrs) and had a speedy boat ride back to Positano. It was a very comfortable and enjoyable trip on a very nice boat that I’d book again! Great value too!

Thank you so much for your lovely review and thank you especially for your kind words for our Captain Luigi. As mentioned the Fjord of Furore is World UNESCO heritage - therefore it is protected area - this means is controlled by the Coast Guard. Through Instagram the spot got very hyped - to get the perfect shot people need to take the bus and walk the stairs down. Your feedback is very important for us as we realized that we need to make a better description of the Fjord and its limits. Have a wonderful day, Elisabeth + Peppe

Excellent boat trip with Blue Star Tours, Angelo was a great captain and Elisabeth helped co-ordinate the trip superbly.

We were driving in from Naples for the tour, so Elisabeth helped us with some directions the night before in English and ensured we were comfortable with the logistics. We'd really emphasise her customer service - infact when we wanted to do a cruise a few days later on a day Blue Star were full, she introduced us to a rival company just to make sure we had a good time.

We did the Amalfi coast trip and had a great day. Angelo is accomodating to most reasonable requests, and gave the mixed group we were in ample time to swim / snorkel, whilst explaining some of the beautiful sights of the coast in Italian and English. He also gives groups the option to stay longer in Amalfi itself or spend time on the beach, and picks up people accordingly.

Blue Star were very professional around Covid-19; the boat was nicely socially distanced, and all the necessary precautions were followed. If we get a chance to go back to this gorgeous part of the world, we'll certainly use them again.

We had such a wonderful day on our boat tour with Blue Star! We took a seven hour tour during our stay in Positano in July, and our trip couldn’t have been better! Our tour guide, Mario, was charismatic and fun, and he made sure we had the best day on the water! As we cruised along the coast, Mario shared the history or significance of the houses and coves as we went by. He had a packed cooler with drinks to take as we wanted, and we stopped a few times to swim on our way towards Amalfi. Towels, along with snorkels and pool noodles were waiting for us as we swam into the caves, surrounded by boats and the beautiful cliffs. We had enough time to explore Amalfi and have some lunch before we made our way back. We stopped again to swim, then Mario wowed us with his accordion, playing us 4 or 5 songs as we drank his mom’s limoncello. Blue Star makes you feel welcome right from check in, and we wouldn’t hesitate to book with them again. Thank you for the wonderful memories!

Do yourself a favor and book the "Explore the Amalfi Coast - Full Day shared tour with a small group" boat tour with Saulo as your Captain! He is so very nice and very knowledge as he grew up in Positano. It is a family business. The boat was very clean and spacious. We had 10 or 12 people on the boat and we had plenty of room. They passed out water, cold drinks, beer, and Prosecco which was very refreshing! There was a toilet on the boat. They had goggles, pool noodles to float with and towels for us to use. We were dropped off in Amalfi after a couple of stops to jump in the water. We were in Amalfi for three hours around noon time to eat, shop and sightsee. After we were picked up from Amalfi, we had another jump in the water on the way back to Positano. Very relaxing day! It is definitely worth it! The coastline was amazing!

Amazing professional company. They taught us about the history and culture of the area, took us to amazing swimming areas and a lovely beach restaurant. I accidently twisted my ankle transferring to a smaller boat, and Pepe the tour guide and boat driver was amazing in getting me comfortably seated, bringing me an ice pack. He went arranged for me to get a taxi back to my AirBNB once we were back on land. I can't say enough wonderful things about this company.

I can say without a doubt that this was the best water tour we have taken since living in Italy/Sicily. The staff took care of everything we needed. From drinks all day (a full cooler) with ice no less. You can not find ice in Sicily, so my wife and I were very impressed and towels on board even though the description says to bring your own towels. Our captain Hermès was great! His English was perfetto! He explained things along the way and how to get there if we wanted to go back on our own. When we stopped to swim, he helped my wife lower our 5 year old into the water and even gave him a swim noodle to swim to the beach with. You will have a choice to stay 3 hours in Amalfi or spend 1 hours there and then go have lunch at a beach club. We chose to stay in Amalfi. Back on the boat we could have stopped again and swam some more but it was very overcast. So we decided to head back. The boat was great. It is set up to chop through the little waves there were. So if you get sea sick, chances are you won’t with this boat. Doesn’t hurt to take dramamine anyway just in case. If you are not staying in Positano plan to arrive a bit early it gets pretty busy on the small streets. There is a parking garage attached to an Eni gas station which is your best option if you don’t want to walk far. It took us with a 5 year old about 10 minutes and just a few stairs, maybe 20 if that. I will warn you however get a price check before you leave your car. It costs us 50 euro! Yes 50! I thought that was a rip off so I texted Elisabeth to let her know since this is where she said would be the best place to park and she got me a full refund on the days parking! Thank you Elisabeth! It should be 35 euro for the entire day to park there. Thank you Elisabeth and Family for a wonderful day on the water and shores. You have helped make memories of a life time.

The boat trip was for a group of 12 and stopped off at various points on the amalfi coast before stopping for 3 hours at Amalfi. The captain was very friendly and informative and also provided towels, goggles and a drink. There were many opportunities to swim in the ocean as well. It is a well organised trip and I would 100% recommend experiencing Amalfi coast on a boat.
One point to note is that the queue for the emerald cave is 1.5 hours so no one on the boat went.

Blue Star's customer service saved our last day in Positano. We had booked the small-group day cruise 2 days ahead and on the morning of the tour, I misread the bus schedule and was late to arrive. I called and said my wife and I would be late and they said they would accommodate if we came soon. Once arrived, instead of telling us we could not join because we were so late, Blue Star had a smaller boat come to pick us up and take us out to join the main boat tour. What could have been a disappointing last day turned into a wonderful experience for my wife and me. Thank you Blue Star for caring for customers and making magic happen :)

This was a great experience in one of the most beautiful settings. Our boat driver was fun and engaging, and very skilled at getting us close to the rocks and coves. The booking process was easy and efficient. The boat had plenty of room for all guests to spread out. Thank you!
