Although there are several options to visit the Blue Cave, this basic tour includes a full-circle tour of the island with a stop at the Blue Cave. We arrived at the pier well before 9am when they were supposed to open. We were told to...More

Dear customer, all I can say is that we ALWAYS give a FREE ride to Grotta Azzurra if our island tour does not stop there for any reason (generally because of long queue).

Avoid at all costs. Will sell you tickets for Island Tour plus Blue Grotto but not stop at Blue Grotto. Avoid this company.

Yes there is, it’s right at the front where the captain is and you have to ask him if you need to use the facilities. We didn’t know so we went just before the trip.

Semi private / Small group boat tour around Capri (8 Replies)
Hi everyone I am trying to research whether there is an option for a small group boat tour around Capri for 2 - 3 hours including Blue Grotto, Faraglioni, etc. I have read the many critical reviews of Motoscafisti di Capri on tripadvisor, especially having to push and shove your way onto a boat, and guides trying to convince customers not to go to the Blue Grotto on the basis that it is overcrowded. In contrast, other companies - Gianni's, Blue Sea Capri, etc. have excellent views,...More

Just email Gianni, I am sure they will give you a price you are happy with.. I rented my own from Geppe at banana boat . On a calm day it's not hard and there's no reefs to hit ;)
