I went with my family on the boat. Our skipper was an excellent guy called Jojo. We had a great time with him and very insightful guy. The boat owner is very impolite and unprofessional.

Went out on the Revenge, an eight meter, 300hp luxury rib, for a full day trip. We were very lucky with the calm seas... it’s not always so quiet... very good and friendly skipper, told us about everything interesting from Santa Margerita to Camogli... There was focaccia and drinks included, wine, prosecco, beer, plenty of water and Softdrinks... Lots of stops on the way to swim, snorkel and relax... lunch stop at the trattoria do spadin... make sure you book the day before... they don’t want a deposit, so you can cancel if the weather is rough... if it gets to rough for them, the will let you know and offer alternative dates or times...

The owner who also happens to be the captain is the most arrogant man I have met. Does not address his passengers, rude and unwilling to accommodate any request. It was clear he did not want us onboard. My mother was feeling extremely sea sick due to the choppy waters (they did not inform us in advance that the weather would be bad) yet they zoomed through the trip unwilling to stop anywhere. We got off at the first port of call because we were not interested in paying more for such terrible service. It’s a shame as the rest of our trip was lovely!

I couldn't find a boat to charter us around Portofino before the season begins in April, but I was able to rent a fishing boat (Selva) from Tricoli Charter to use for the day, which I drove myself. Check in was easy and straightforward and all worked exactly was described. A perfect way to take matters of adventure into your own hands!

We booked a full day charter for our group of 9 to see Cinque terre and the surrounding area. Tricoli called to reschedule our tour the day before, or request that we come earlier due to weather concerns. We opted to come earlier as we only had the one day available. From the moment we arrived at the dock it was clear the captain and hostess did not want to take us. There was no introduction to the boat or the crew, and no safety briefing or explanation of what to expect. They then raced through what was meant to be a a six hour tour of Cinque terre in less than three hours, with no stops permitted in order to avoid the "bad weather". The scenery was beautiful but the "english speaking" tour guide/hostess I had confirmed in advance spoke poorly and only spoke when asked a question. The Captain did not address us as passengers at all and refused to accommodate any of our requests as relayed to him by the hostess. They then expected us to swim in the boat harbor and eat lunch in Rapallo where we first boarded the boat (swim and lunch stops were meant to be included in tour), or pay more to go somewhere else, so we opted to get off the boat half day. Incidentally the supposedly "bad weather" never materialized during our whole stay, I think they just had something else they wanted to do that day and it showed. Our charter was a total rip and the only bad experience in an otherwise fantastic visit to the area. You can get better service and experience taking one of the regular ferries that operate Cinque terrre daily, and for a fraction of the cost of Tricoli charters.
