EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

Day tours from Sorrento to Capri

There is no question that Capri is one of the most impressive spots in Italy. Surrounded by crystal clear waters, shimmering grottos and dramatic cliff-faces, it’s what dreams are made of. You could take the hydrofoil to Capri, but if you’d like to travel with a little more luxury and seclusion, this laid back transfer is the perfect option.

Your day starts in central Sorrento where you’ll meet your driver. Relax for the drive to the port, taking in views over olive & lemon groves, the Gulf of Sorrento and Villa Lauro in the distance. At the port he’ll hand you over to your English-speaking boat’s skipper, who will direct you to a more modern version of Sorrento’s famous gozzo boats (with the added benefit of shaded cabin and toilet onboard). Then it’s off to sea!

With a limit of just 12 people per boat, your journey will be as relaxed as it is beautiful.

It’s all about the journey

Rather than skipping straight to Capri, as many day tours from Sorrento do, your boat will first take a turn along the gulf, to showcase its beauty. Admire the beautiful town of Marciano and the cliffs of Massa Lubrense before stopping at picturesque stops along the way for swimming and snorkeling.

Back onboard, your skipper will prepare you for your visit to Capri, teaching you about local traditions, stories and superstitions as your boat cruises the perimeter of the beautiful island. Don’t forget your camera!

One of the most famous features of Capri is its grottos; sea level caves that sparkle in the reflected water. As part of your day trip from Sorrento you’ll visit the White Grotto, the Green Grotto and the Sailor Grotto. Visiting the Blue Grotto is possible but costs extra and can be negotiated with the skipper.

Four hours of free time in Capri & Anacapri

Your boat docks at Capri port where your skipper will give you suggestions on a variety of activities and answer any questions you have but what you do next is up to you. In four hours free time you can take a walk or the cable car up to explore the picturesque streets and squares of Capri; visit the beautiful Augustus gardens; or catch a bus to explore the wilder side of the island in Anacapri. Make sure to ask your skipper for your home made Caprese sandwich snack (made by Mama with love!) and a drink of your choice to take with you before getting off!

After your time in Capri there’s one more highlight on your Capri boat tour – a stop at the famous faraglioni, the three big lighthouses of Capri. Steal a kiss under the so-called Arch of Love and relax with a beer or soft drink as you cruise back to Sorrento. Before disembarking and taking your transfer back to Sorrento town, you’ll end with a limoncello toast to a beautiful and relaxing day at sea.

The start time was moved but the email that was sent out came very late. And the driver was late again for the new schuled time of pickup.
The instructions for meeting were easy and perfectly explained. The boat ride to Capri and around the island was definitely the highlight. The 4 hours on Capri was hot and crowded so not as enjoyable but still a good experience.

Overall it went well but the last taxi driver was a big problem. Below the details. The positive: Our guides (Mario and Franco) were excellent and treated us and the group very well, they are very tourist oriented and did a great job. They know their business, 5 starts for them. The negative: We had issues with the pickup and drop off. The pickup was around 35 minutes late, which had us very nervous, but we know that could happen, so not a big deal, but the drop off was terrible. The driver was a very grumpy man that treated everybody really bad and was complaining because we were wet (they didn't allowed us to change) and also he complained the whole trajectory because it was a mistake in the people distribution. He had to deviate 10 minutes to drop passengers and it was a huge concern for him (10 minutes, everybody was OK but not him !!). He almost insulted those guesses and slammed the doors. He was texting while driving and as you can imaging, on those narrow streets, we were extremely concerned for our own safety. I think you need to be very careful with the drivers you select because they can ruin the entire experience. You don't have to contact us.
