We went to Naples to catch the ferry to Capri. Unfortunately the ferry was delayed an hour and that delay forced cancellation of my boat tour around the island.

If you are going to Capri you need to stay overnight on the island to maximize the experience

Naples to Sorrento
There are a few different ways to reach Sorrento when flying into Naples.
You could take your life in your hands and go by taxi (mobile phone driving rules don’t seem to apply in Italy).
You could take a train (and risk losing your wallet).
You could take the Curreri Viagi bus (cost 10 Euros) from outside the airport (if you can find it)
You could pre-book a transfer with your tour operator (still on those Italian roads though)
Or you could go the very best way- which is by Hydrofoil and takes about 30 minutes. As the hydrofoil sets off you will see Vesuvias on your left, wondrously looming over the Bay of Naples. Then the majestic sight of Sorrento as it comes into sight, perched on the hillside. The hydrofoil drops you in Sorrento and if you are going onwards you can pick up a train, taxi or bus from here.
It is not far to walk from the port to most of the hotels in Sorrento.
So, how to do it? From Naples Airport take the bus (directly outside the airport and just passed McDonalds) to Molo Beverello Port. The short journey is fascinating, through the streets of Naples and you will marvel at how on earth planning permission was granted for some of the buildings, and how things meet the Health and Safety Laws (they must have different ones to the UK!) The bus will drop you on the opposite side of the road to the Port so be careful how you cross over. Also when you get on the bus, ask the driver to tell you when to get off. He will. The Italians are very helpful .At the port you will see many ticket offices and you just have to find the sign which says to Sorrento. Easy. The ticket office will tell you where the hydrofoil goes from However, a word of warning- your ticket will not guarantee you a place on the next boat. You have to be ready to get on. It is first come, first served when the boat is ready to board. We didn’t realise, did not push in, and thus had to wait for the next one! Not for long, though, they are quite frequent. Also they don’t necessarily come and go on time, really just when the boat arrives and is filled up again, so don’t wander off!
All this said, it really is the most fantastic way to get to Sorrento!

We were going to/from Ischia in summer. Once you get to Molo Beverello, you’ll see the ticket windows directly opposite Castello Nuovo. On either end of the ticket building are large screens which show the schedule. Find which company you want, go to that company’s window, and ask for the next (“prossimo”) to Ischia. Each ticket window will also probably have a sign that says something like “Prossimo a Ischia 15:30”. Note that there are multiple ports on Ischia, so be sure you are going to the right one. “Ischia” is “Ischia Porto”. Once you have your tickets, it’s still hard to find the right dock/boat and there’s literally no one to ask. Go to the right/north behind the ticket building, by the water, where’s it’s roped off. There will be workers there who know where your boat will be. Waive your tickets at them and ask “Dove?” or “E qui?” and they will point you to the right waiting area. It’s about an hour on the boat to Ischia Porto. There are drinks and snacks for sale. Some boats have a small open deck (very windy; the boats go fast); others don’t. One crossing was a little bumpy, but not bad. Buying the return ticket in Ischia can be challenging. There’s a large Alilauro/Captain Morgan ticket office right at Ischia’s port (near but not right at the docks, southeast corner of the port), but note that there’s also a small Alilauro storefront ticket office on the street that runs along the south side of the port, and each might not sell the same tickets from day to day! Look at which boats they have posted; if your boat isn’t posted, you may need to go to the other office. The Medmar ferry ticket office is on the west side of the port.

Dismal place that does a disservice to Napoli. Completely chaotic, no one is in charge and I would say you need your wits about you to ensure your travel plans don’t unravel. Be careful when getting a taxi here - you get in this structureless queue and it’s literally survival of the fittest. You should expect to pay 10-12 euros to get into the centre but it can be difficult to negotiate a reasonable fair when it’s busy

Taxis in Rome nearly always follow the meter ( no need to tip ) but Naples taxis are a disgrace. Fare from station to the port should be about 11 Euros but our driver tried to tell me there was a fiesta and flat rate of 20 Euros plus 1 Euro per bag. I asked him to turn on the meter but he refused so I just went with it. On the way I went online , saw there were no fiestas and after he had unloaded the luggage took pictures of his taxi number and window sticker and threatened to call the police. After briefly protesting he said 15 Euros and drove off complaining. These guys are scum and will try to intimidate you en masse but take pictures and hold your ground.

We took the high-speed ferry (hydrofoil) to Capri from Molo Beverello. It’s located a short 5-10 min walk from where our cruise ship docked. We booked our tickets online ahead of time to avoid any delay and confusion. There is a service charge to do so, but we all felt better having a seat since we had a tour in Capri. There are multiple companies that run the routes, so pay attention to the signs (and to the boarding because no announcement was made). Our ferries were on time, and boarding/disembarking moved along smoothly. There’s not much around in regards to a comfortable wait (a few benches are nearby).

Beware, there are two ferry terminals in Naples that are ~10 mins apart (Molo Beverello and Calata Porta di Massa). No employees are helpful at either location and there are confusing/contradicting signs everywhere. There are multiple companies that run services independent of each other and they will not notify you of the “next” ferry but rather THEIR next ferry. This means you need to check the schedule at each counter!

There was one helpful lady in the info booth but everyone else was extremely rude. I recommend leaving ample time for you to get over the confusion before your ferry leaves

It all works out in the end, but there is hardly any clear information once you leave the actual ticket office. No information boards so you can't be sure where your hydrofoil or ferry will dock...but this seems to be the way in the Bay of Naples. Other travellers are usually helpful, though nobody really knows what's going on. Eventually it becomes obvious that this must be the one to get on. If it's not you will be stopped by the boarding agent. Suggest leave plenty of time. To arrive in a hurry could be really frustrating.

We walked from our ship docked at Port of Marittima in Naples to Molo Beverello to catch the fast boat to the Isle of Capri. It was just a short walk from our ship but what we could find on the internet was unclear. Molo Beverello is located just in front of the Castle Nuovo making it very easy to find. There is a coffee shop just beside the port for coffee, snacks, and diet Cokes while you wait to board the hydrofoil to Capri.

We took the Alilauro ferry 3 times.

For each leg I'd navigated the Alilauro website, made and printed the booking as a sheet of A4.

At Naples Molo Beverello I took it up to the office and was told "no problem, take it to the ship". Sure enough this worked fine and we got safely to Sorrento.

BUT then from Sorrento took a return Alilauro trip to Capri. Foolishly I assumed the same protocol so we queued for the boat. This time our printed A4 tickets were rejected and the staff member at the boarding gate told us to exchange them for vouchers at the office. I assume he'd had some big disappointment in his life and was now taking it out on the rest of us.

The ticket office was swamped with people and no way could we have made the swap except a lovely tour guide intervened on our behalf saying she didn't want visitors to get a bad impression of her home town.

Having made it to Capri we immediately made the A4 to voucher switch for the return leg.

Finally we were able to use these vouchers on an earlier boat run by ANOTHER company. What a relief.

Summary: caveat emptor and TRY to switch printed A4 tickets into vouchers even if they tell you it's not needed. Good luck!
