Thrilling experience! I really felt like in paradise during the 3 hours tour on the boat. Plus, Ciro (the guide) was super friendly and helpful. He also gave us explanations about all the caves around the island. Also, there are refreshments on the boat. These are included in the offer. I would highly recommend to do this tour at 9 am because at that time the coast is not so crowded. Better to discover and swim in the caves! Definitely a MUST in Capri! Congrats to the company and Ciro!!

We’ve booked on a website a boat from this company. Turns out that this is an icon family at the harbour of Capri. Service amazing. Perfect value. Very nice people. That’s not my first time renting a boat in Capri, but my favorite experience. Highly recommended.

4 couples took the 2 hour boat tour around Capri going into all the grottoes except for the famous Blue grotto. We went on October 29 and caught a great sunny day. Our captain, Alessio, was great piloting us right into many grottoes. The water colors were outstanding and the scenery spectacular. We went swimming even though the water was a little chilly. The end of October is near the very end of the season and there were only a few boats on the water which made the trip even more enjoyable.

We were approached as we got off the ferry by Geno and was enchanted by him and booked a 2 hour tour with him. He had so much knowledge of the area, the sea, and the history he has lived a very interesting life around Capri and other countries. On reading other reviews yes he is 84, yes he is bossy when he wants you to get the perfect picture and yes he is a bit of a flirt. But all of this adds to his charm, but the words of his granddaughter.... you either love him or you hate him. We learnt so much and saw things that other tours fo not show you. We had an amazing time and would highly recommended them.

I just returned from a two day trip to Capri. My AirBnB host recommended Capri Whales di Wendy. I originally contacted them about a marina transfer from Marina Grande to Marina Piccola but Stefano ended up telling me it would be easier and cheaper to take the funicular and bus — and it was. Fast forward to today. I arrange for a two hour boat tour around the island. I have the impression after talking to Stefano that the tour takes you all over the island to different sights not on the ‘beaten track’ and that you get to swim in one of the grottos. I am by myself do I go on a tour alone. I arrive and am told that I am going out with Wendy’s father. He’s quite old. I’m his 80s. He tells me he’s a true Caprician born right in a house on Marina Grande and knows everything about the island. I feel excited to get a tour from such a person! We get on the boat and he tells me to take off my cover up and get some sun and to lay out on the deck. He also tells me that I am wearing too much clothing for a swimsuit (I had on a tanking) and that I should take my top off and go topless to get more sun and a tan. I politely decline. Throughout the tour several times he keeps telling me to take my top off and that not to worry that he is a gentleman and won’t touch me. This all makes me extremely uncomfortable. While I am sitting next to him twice he peels back my swimsuit edge — presumably to check if I am getting a tan! Then we get to the green grotto and I thought I was going to get to swim. He doesn’t offer me to swim. I ask him if I can swim later. He asks ‘With or without clothes?’ Again I feel very uncomfortable and start to feel a bit sick to my stomach. He tells me all about the island and a few times I can’t hear him well and turn away for second and he gets angry and raises his voice and says he isn’t going to talk anymore because I’m not listening. Twice he asks me to turn a knob or button on the controls and I don’t know exactly which one to press after hearing the directions and he gets angry and raises his voice at me and comes over and calls me a ‘dodo’. We finally stop the boat in open water and I get to swim but not in a grotto and he asks me if I want to lay out on the deck and he’ll sit with me and he can rub me with suntan lotion. At this point I just want to get off the boat and ask that we head back. He remarks that he has never met a woman as shy as me (I guess because I didn’t want to go topless?). I paid €150 for this. Does this experience sound to you like it is worth €150? When I return to pay I told Wendy briefly about what happened and I’m extremely uncomfortable even telling her the whole story because her Dad is right outside the shop and there are other customers there. She says sorry and then charges my credit card €150. I was hoping she would apologize and knock some money off the bill. Feeling numb, I leave and sit to eat a sandwich with her Dad. I’m still feeling uncomfortable but trying to be polite to an older person. He buys me a sandwich and an Aperol spritz. I feel so awful after this experience and before writing this review I contacted Stefano and told this whole story and asked for a refund. He says he is so sorry and that for the next trip I will get a free tour. I honestly don’t know if I will come back because I obviously live in the United States and it’s such a long trip out here. I ask for the refund and mention that I would rather not post the negative review and just get the refund. He tells me I’m blackmailing him! It’s not blackmail, just business. If you have a paying customer who is unsatisfied, as the business owner you should try and rectify the situation. This experience has soured my whole visit to Capri and has left me sick to my stomach. I would avoid doing business here. I forgot to mention that there was supposed to be a cooler with ice on the boat with drinks. The cooler had drinks but it looked like yesterday’s ice had all melted and the drinks had been there for ages.
