“We wanted a boat with driver, and they arranged it.”

Banana Sport Capri Boat
Ranked #4 of 46 Tours in Capri
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 22, 2012

My friend and didn't want to drive our own boat. We were looking to rent a wooden "gozzo" boat with a driver. We asked the nice folks at Banana Sport if they could arrange it, and within ten minutes a gorgeous classic wooden boat arrived with a driver. We went all around Capri for 4 hours. This is what I love about Italy: even thought we didn't rent from them, they were able to send some business to a friend and they made the arrangements for us ASAP. Good price (maybe $200 euros or so) for 4 hours on a big boat with padded area for laying out in the sun. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Next time I will hire the boat for the entire day. There is NOTHING like spending a day out on your own boat, anchored in the water staring at multi-million $ yachts and the beautiful scenery of Capri.

If you are willing to splurge anywhere, this is it!!. Great experience, very easy to drive around the island yourself, dock by the green grotto swim in. Your own pace, no rocking and other passengers getting sick. It was well worth 90 euro for 2 hours (80 euro at non summer months).

We had a fabulous day driving our rental boat around Capri. The staff at Banana Sport were helpful and the whole rental process was easy and smooth. Excellent fun.

Best 90 Euro's spent this holiday. No hassle booking, just turned up at the booking desk by the pier, filled out the hire form (driving licence / passport preferred although we had neither & they took the hotel details instead). We were given a map of the Island & advised to not venture too close to the cliffs due to the risk of falling rocks, & if dropping anchor, ensure it was on a sandy bottom. 15 mins later we boarded the approx 4 metre modern boat with 25HP outboard, plenty of room for the 5 of us & equipped with a shade. We were piloted out & the boat handler gave us a run down of the controls. He then hopped into another boat & left us to explore the coast on our own. It takes approx 80 mins to circumnavigate the Island non stop with stunning scenery & beautiful cobalt blue crystal clear waters. We stopped in a secluded bay with a sandy bottom & anchored up before going for a swim (don't forget your costumes) as we all did. Sea temperature in August was fantastic. The hire time of 2 hours was ample & when we arrived back at the port, the boat handler came out & took us back to shore. Visa etc accepted & payment taken at the end of the trip. This is the best way to explore the coast of Capri. don't be pressured by the touts offering piloted boats. Go for it & pilot yourself.

What an awesome experience! No hassle getting a boat in peak season. Clean, easy to drive, shade cover provided relief from the hot sun. Loved the sites along the coast and the clear warm waters were heavenly to swim in. So much better than a charter! Freedom to do what you like and cost great for Capri. Highly recommend. Our photos are amazing and capture the fun we had and the beauty of Capri.
