Exclusive Cruises will be your hosts for the day for a private 6-hour boat excursion to see the remarkably beautiful Amalfi Coast. This is a private boat tour that can be fully customized to your interests. Below is only a suggested itinerary with a selection of highlights from the day that you can experience. Note: Sights are marked "Pass By" simply because you can decide to spend as much or as little time as you would like. Exclusive Cruises will help you plan a relaxed day custom fit to your travel desires. Here are some highlights of the experience and sights you will enjoy:
- Meet your local captain and private 19ft motorboat at your point of departure. Embark from either Maiori, Minori, Amalfi, Conca dei Marini, Praiano, Positano, Nerano, or Cetara and begin the journey of a lifetime.
- Cruise along the jagged coastline that is notable for its many crumbling towers, originally designed as watchtowers in the 14th century to warn the villagers of pirate invasions.
- See the Li Galli Islands, most notable for their history in Homer’s epic, “The Odyssey,” where Ulysses is attracted by the songs of the sirens. Your captain will cruise through these stunning islands and can even stop at your request for a swim between them.
- Positano: One of the most photographed villages in all of Italy, Positano is beautifully colored with villas, hotels, and restaurants climbing up the steep mountainside. John Steinbeck said it best in 1953 when he described this picturesque getaway, "Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn't quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone."
- Furore: Most notable for its Fjord, home to the annual World Championship of Diving from Great Heights, with a bridge positioned 30 meters above the water.
- Conca Dei Marini: Known as a getaway for the rich and famous, including Jackie Kennedy and Sophia Loren, whose villa resides in this very village. One notable sight is the Lover’s Arch, a natural limestone formation.
- “Conca” is also home to the Emerald Grotto, a fluorescent light-green cave with an underwater nativity scene. This village also boasts several quaint beachside restaurants, where you can taste some of the best seafood in the area.
- Amalfi: Visit St. Andrew's Cathedral, a 9th century Roman Catholic structure dedicated to the patron saint of Amalfi. Amalfi contains many fine boutiques as well as countless dessert shops.
- Maiori and Minori: Two neighboring villages with lovely side streets and walkways. Maiori is much larger than Minori, and includes the “Lungomare,” a street parallel to the longest stretch of beach on the coastline. Maiori also features a charming cave known as “Pandora’s Grotto,” only accessible by sea. Take note of the vibrant orange corals on the cave walls as the tide eases up and down.
