We booked a full day (8hrs) tour from Positano along the Amalfi Coast on the 40ft Baia Crowne speed boat from Positano along the coast with a stop in Amalfi for lunch and time to swim too. We had an amazing day trip with our skipper; Maurizio! He had a lot of knowledge of the Amalfi Coast, it’s history and the hidden gems. Maurizio was always on hand and very attentive and friendly. He is also a great DJ too! :) We highly recommend this tour and Maurizio!

We used Positano Boats for a private day trip with stops throughout the Amalfi Coast. It was such a fun day with a knowledgeable guide. It started out with choppy waters but ended up being a wonderful experience. Our guide took us to the best spots and was very accommodating to our interests. Great value and highly recommended!

This was a real highlight for us, we went in the sunset cruise and left at 6pm. We took a bottle of champagne on with us but needn’t have brought it as we had complimentary bubbles and snacks anyway which we were unaware of.
Franco was with us and he was so lovely. It was really relaxing and there were stops for photographs and Franco knew how to get all the lovely pictures!
Would do a whole day trip next time as the only thing we would change is to have more time on there

We bought a ticket at the Amalfi Marina Kiosk to take the boat to Positano. Beautiful coastline all the way! We explored picturesque Positano with lovely narrow streets, stairs up and down, shops, church and restaurants. We had diner at Chez Black and after we took the boat back to Amalfi. A beautiful day! A must do!

My wife and I chartered the Gozza Madame for a day trip out of Positano to Capri. It was an incredible experience and our Captain, Franco, was top notch. Not only was our boat ride perfect, Franco hooked us up with a taxi driver, Alessandro, in Capri who toured us around during our visit. This was one of the highlights of our visit and we recommend it highly. Ask for Franco. You wont regret it!

We had a private tour to Capri with Giuseppe who was really great! 8 hours touring around the most beautiful place we had ever seen! He took us to so many cool spots. The Blue grotto, killer lunch spot and swimming. We will never forget our amazing day!

Great tour from Positano to Capri with a swim in Mediterranean Sea to refresh. Capri and Anacapri is a beautiful island with amazing scenery and pictures from Mount Solaro. Captain Francesco was very nice and took pictures of us. Marina Piccola dropoff to a nice beach with Taxi and other transport availability. Highly recommend it.

We had the absolute best day tour on the boat! It was a highlight of our trip and we WILL book again. The captain was accommodating and welcoming. We had 2 young school aged kids with us and he was great with them. Cannot wait to see them again.

Definitely take a boat to see the Amalfi Coast, but do not use Positano Boats unless you enjoy being lied to, verbally abused by your captain (Franko), and driving at a ridiculously slow speed.

In late September we paid 900 euro to charter the largest boat for our group of 4.  The only reason why we chartered the largest boat was because we were promised that this boat because of it's speed would be able to to take us to Capri, see all of the groto's, and then return down the Amalfi coast.  I noticed at the beginning of our ride that this "fast boat" that we had chartered was being passed by everyone.  I asked Franko why we are going so slow, and his answer was - " plenty of time, try to enjoy life, you Americans are always rushing".  After going to Capri, he continued this slow pace, and I asked him how long it would take to get to the waterfalls.  His response - "we are not going".  I told him we had paid to do this.  He then called the owner of Positano Boats and they requested another $250 euros.  I told him No of course, and he proceeded to tell me that I was " like a little Italian boy", trying to scam his company.  He continued to verbally insult us until we returned to the port.  Once at the port, I relayed this to the lady at the booking tent, and she could have cared less.  Horrible service from the owner down to the captain Franko.  The most expensive day of our trip was ruined because we chose the wrong company.
