Worth Every Penny!
, May 2022
The only way to see Italy’s coast line. Spectacular. We spent the day cruising from amalfi to capri. Stopped off in Capri for lunch, gelato, and gifts for family. Then cruised back to amalfi port passing all the coast line towns and hotels on the way. We even stopped for a quick swim and saw fish & jellyfish! Had wonderful tips from our captain Michele about the rock and famous sites of Capri. We stayed in Ravello and took the Sita bus down to the amalfi pier for our tour. We tipped what we could (unsure on tipping here in Italy). All in all would spend the money again. One of the best days spent on our honeymoon here in Italy!
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thank you for your kind review, I am so happy that you enjoyed your day with us! You definitely saw all of the highlights between Capri and Amalfi and it was such a pleasure to have you on board. (Michele I'm sure appreciated a tip and to answer your question, which is asked quite often by many and may be helpful for someone reading this- tipping is indeed customary in Italy and much appreciated by the skippers, waiters, employees, etc). Thank you for choosing us for your honeymoon and please come back again soon!
Well worth it

Thank you so much for your review! I am happy to know that you enjoyed your day with us and the captain and boat were perfect! I am so sorry if there was a misunderstanding, I am here to make sure that does not happen so something must have definitely slipped by me. Please email me if you can to let me know specifics so that I can make sure it does not happen in the future, and do be in touch if you are back so that we can make it up to you if necessary. Grazie mille!

Great way to spend the day!
, Aug 2019
Our day long excursion on the water was great. Raffaelle was a wonderful tour guide, very informative and accommodating. Valeria spent the better part of her Sunday solidifying our tour the next day with suggestions and details for the trip. They even picked us up on the pier in Praia as that was more convenient for us rather than trekking to Positano. We were able to swim a few times in a great area as well as have lunch in Capri. The restaurant was somewhat touristy and a bit over priced given many of the tour companies stop there for lunch. Despite that, the food was very good and location was right on the water. We would highly recommend this was certainly a highlight of our vacation
Boating beautiful

Awesome boating experience. Captain Francesco was wonderful captain and tour guide. He was 5 stars. The sights are amazing and the ride is wonderful. The wait at the blue grotto was long, about 45 minutes, bit the experience inside the cave was worth the wait. Tour price was expensive.

A coastal paradise

Our Captain Marco made our day trip a wonderful experience. We took their recommendation to see "the heart of Amalfi" instead of Capri. We have been to Capri already, so it wasn't necessary. The boat was clean, refreshments were excellent. The restaurant they took us too was amazing. Thank you again for a great experience!
Amazing and best day of our trip
, Jul 2019
The wooden boat was perfect and just what me and my 4 friends needed for a relaxing day, going up the coast and to Capri. Raffaele was the best, as he gave us fun tips, let us swim through a cave, and was a cool guy to have around the whole day. As well, Valeria, who works with booking, was kind enough to arrange our drop off in Sorrento, accommodating our need to be dropped off closer to where we were staying, rather than going back to where we were picked up. Such a lovely experience with lovely people. Definitely will be doing this again next time I am back. Thanks!
