Via Grotta Azzurra, Anacapri, Capri

The Basics

A visit to the Blue Grotto is a must for visitors on a day trip or shore excursion from the Amalfi Coast, Naples, or Sorrento. You can reach the cave by water or land, but to enter the cave, you must board an official rowboat. Due to the high number of visitors, wait times can stretch for hours, though passengers of private boat tours are often given precedence. Book your boat transfer to and from the Blue Grotto in advance to avoid long lines, or reserve a private tour with a boat ride around Capri and the Faraglioni rock formations.

Capri & Blue Grotto Boat Trip-Prime Experience with max. 8 guests from Sorrento
We had an amazing time during this tour. The guides+skippers were super friendly, the boat was clean. They had snacks + drinks for us. They gave us plenty of time to tour Capri, and asked us as a group as to whether we wanted to stop at Blue Grotto and swim.
Our guide was awesome....

Capri and Blue Grotto Day Tour from Naples or Sorrento
We had a great day on Capri. We were disappointed the Blue Grotto was closed, however, the boat ride around the island more than made up for it. Our tour guide, Luigi, was fantastic. He ensured we all had a wonderful day. Don’t hesitate to book this tour!
Beautiful unforgettable day!

Capri Blue Grotto Boat Tour From Sorrento
Victorio(sp) was an excellent guide!!! Very personable and knowledgeable. He made out group feel comfortable and treated each of us as friends. Also our captain (sorry forgot his name) was excellent with the boat and getting in to tight places and allowing time for us to enjoy the gorgeous Amalfi coast. Thanks for a wonderful unforgettable experience!!

Full-Day Tour Capri, Anacapri and Blue Grotto from Sorrento
Tour guide, Luigi, was incredible. Third day in Sorento and the Capri Tour was by far our best experience. Must do for first timers exploring the Sorrento peninsula and Luigi sent the experience over the top. Highly recommend.
Such a great way to see Capri

Capri and Blue Grotto Private Tour from Naples or Sorrento
Felt like we had Capri to ourselves. Our guide Miguel was friendly, informative and knew Capri like the back of his hand. He took us to the main spots on the island, and since the weather didn't allow for us to go on the chair lifts or Blue Grotto, he took us to Axel Munthe's villa instead, and then recommended the best spot on the boat that went round the island. Also took us to a good restaurant with the best fresh food.
Great experience with a...

Capri, Anacapri and Blue Grotto in a Day Trip- Small Group
This was a wonderful time for our family to visit. Although it was not warm and some shops were closed, it was a lot more enjoyable. My boys 12 and 14 thought the chair lift was the highlight of our trip. Best pizza we had was by the restaurant recommended by our tour guide who was also very knowledgeable and made it very enjoyable!

Things to Know Before You Go

  • At the cave entrance, you must purchase a ticket from the floating ticket office and board a rowboat to enter. This is included in most boat tours.

  • Due to the low cave entrance, the Blue Grotto is only open when weather conditions permit.

  • You’ll have to wait to enter the cave aboard small, open-air rowboats, so bring a hat and sunblock.

  • The journey to the Blue Grotto is not recommended for those who suffer from seasickness.

  • Once inside the cave, many rowboat skippers will treat you to a serenade for a small tip.

How to Get to the Blue Grotto

You can reach the Blue Grotto by sea from the Marina Grande port or by land from the town of Anacapri.

Show all

When to Get There

The cave is most crowded in summer and during the midday hours, so plan to visit first thing in the morning to avoid a long wait to enter. Note that the Blue Grotto is open only when sea conditions permit, so when the waters are rough or there are high winds, the cave may close with no advance warning.

Capri by Land

The Blue Grotto can only be visited by sea, but the island of Capri has a number of attractions on land, as well. Take an island tour of Villa San Michele, with its sweeping views over the Mediterranean, the lush Gardens of Augustus, and the 14th-century Charterhouse of San Giacomo.
