Boat Excursion to Capri Island: Small Group from Sorrento

193 reviews
A boat tour around Capri is the perfect way to discover the island at a relaxed pace sharing the happiness with a small group of people ( max 12) on board. We will pick you up with a free shuttle to your hotel and we will leave from the port of Massa Lubrense sailing under the coast towards Capri with a first stop at the Marciano natural waterfall to take some amazing photos,to show later to your friends once you'll be back home, and take a refreshing bath. We will continue towards Cala di Mitigliano and Punta Campanella, the extremity of the Sorrento Peninsula to arrive in Capri welcomed by the Salto di Tiberio, a precipice overlooking the sea, and Villa Jovis immediately followed by the "Grotta del Corallo" and the "Grotta Bianca". The tour will continue sailing towards the Faraglioni Rocks, the Natural Arch of Capri and Villa Malaparte. The first part of the tour will end with a stop for a swim in Marina Piccola with a view of the Faraglioni, before a landing on the island for a stop of about 4 hours. On board we will provide you a packed lunch with vegetarian sandwich and beverages! The return journey is approximately 40 minutes, a free shuttle to the hotel will be waiting for you at the port.

Serious safety incident
I was sexually assaulted on the small boat trip into the blue grotto. I was by myself at the front of the boat and the boat driver touched me inappropriately. I was scared for my life as I could not escape. I felt trapped and prayed and prayed I would get back to the big boat safely which I did luckily. This happened last year and I didn’t report it as I wanted to forget it but have realised I need to say something to stop it from continuing.

Was planning to go as had heard it was the number 1 site on the island. Seems to be completely overrated. I was not even impressed with the postcards or pictures I saw... You pay 14 eur for a 4 min trip inside the cave. If it is windy and big waves (like on the day I was there), you really have to keep yourself ducked inside the boat, and will be impossible to even get a good picture with a decent big camera, due to the constant moving... Honestly, you can save these 14 eur! I have to agree with some people saying it is better to spend tis money on the chairlift to Mount Solaro. Totally agree!

We rented a private boat tour from Sorrento to Capri on a gorgeous fall Sunday. As we rounded the blue grotto I was amazed and not expecting to see it! Our boat captain told us as there was no line to go in and we should take advantage, so we did. We climbed off the yacht (without our shoes!) into a tiny wooden rowboat with a charming Italian rower who promised we would have a good time and he would sing to us beautiful Italian songs. We rowed over to another boat that was docked, to pay I think 14 euros each. We then went through the tiny rock opening and into a stunning bright blue grotto where we rowed around for maybe 5 minutes, the rower took some photos of us, and as promised, sang a few beautiful songs. So the experience is very short but unforgettable. If you are prone to complain about the price (30 American dollars for 2) or the very short experience, do not go! Leave it to the rest of us who appreciate a once in a lifetime, romantic opportunity!!

Our experience was great. We came in early July when the tourism was still relatively slow after the lockdown. We came with the tour boat. I assume they cooperate with the blue grotto boatmen so everything was fast and efficient. The boatman approaches to whomever wants to go in, taking two people at the time only, you pay at the special boat for the entrance (cash only) and you are “suggested” to leave a tip. You have to lay flat on the bottom of the boat not to hit your head when you enter and it’s very exciting and adventurous. After you enter the cave, you’ll be amazed at the beauty of the water. The blue is so unique and bright! Wow! The boatman makes a big circle and whistles songs. It creates a mysterious kind of mood. Unfortunately, this trip is short. You are inside only for a few minutes. Basically you have time to get impressed, try to record these memories and you are out while you are still all full of emotions. We gave our guy a 10€ euro tip, but we saw others mostly giving change. Not sure what is fair here. I wish we could stay inside the grotto for much longer and admire calmly this little nature’s miracle, but considering that there is a limited amount of boats allowed in the cave and your tour boat will never leave if everybody would be staying there for a long time, it was understandable. We personally were very happy we made it because we were following Facebook updates and in July the Blue Grotto was open only 5 or 6 days. We were lucky to visit on one of those days and we think it was totally worth it.

One of the most disappointing things myself and my partner have ever done. €14 per person for a 4 minute trip into a cave. To add insult to this our boat man asked for a tip. Do yourself a favour and go to the top of Ana Capri on the lift, amazing views and a much better experience.
