    Great guided tour with a very nice skipper. Both Francesco and Michele were very nice and would recommend the experience!

    “Capri Official Tour” is the operator. It was a miserable. I read the bad reviews and chose to go ahead regardless. What a mistake. By the way, I don’t recommend booking a tour ahead of time, there are plenty of places to purchase a tour from once you’re there. First of all, the day of the tour (Sep 21), the water was extremely choppy. There was a yellow flag warning. I contacted the operator and asked if it’s possible to cancel without a penalty due to the weather and because I knew I would get sea sick. The guy said no, the water is not choppy (liar). So the meetup time was 10am. We waited for 30 minutes. The girl in the bar who makes you sign the liability contract said that there was a problem with the boat line. Finally the operator guy showed up 30 minutes later looking very grumpy, like he just rolled out of bed. No apology whatsoever. When I asked why he was late, he said “relax lady, you’re on holiday“. Exactly! I’m on holiday and I don’t like it when the company that I paid a lot of money to waste my time. Later on he said there was an accident. BS! Sure enough, the water was extremely choppy (like being in a washing machine) and I threw up the hole time. The boat was old and very noisy, it released a constant stench of diesel, so that made it worse. If course, swimming was out of the question. Basically, this is a very unreliable tour operator, with no integrity, and they don’t have any sense of customer service. AVOID.
    Great tour; pickup/meeting point was hectic.

    The tour was amazing and the captain was very good, however the meeting process was poorly arranged. Very unorganized. It was a good trip once we were on the boat.
    Average experience that was not what was outlined in the itinerary
    Ash_F, Sept 2023
    I was apprehensive about booking this due to the reviews however went ahead. It seems like after going on the experience perhaps there’s different skippers that provide different trips? Our trip was middle of September and was a very busy this weekend so I’m not sure if this impacted our itinerary. We didn’t go to the blue grotto (which I knew was a 99% probability before booking so that was fine). The only grotto we went to was the white grotto, so I’m not sure what happened to the green grotto? We stopped for ONE swim stop. We were also not told this was the only one whilst swimming only once back on the boat driving. According to the itinerary there should have been two and potentially a third? Overall it wasn’t a bad experience but also was not the experience outlined in the itinerary.
    super fun

    we had a great time on our boat tour. our host was very knowledgeable and provided great info about the areas we were touring. we got to swim for a while and enjoyed limoncello shots with the group. highly recommend for the price. we enjoyed it so much and would do again!
    Joan_C, Sept 2023
    The water was amazing. We loved swimming in the blue sea. Our guide was very friendly and informative.
    Ignore Any Bad Reviews this was tops!
    Susan_S, Sept 2023
    GO ON THIS OUTING! We read all of the reviews before we booked this and some weren’t too good but we wanted to go out on the water so we took our chances… and we are so glad we did! This was our favorite thing we did in Capri and only wish it was longer than 2 hours. It was not hard to find, just follow the instructions and go to the cafe. The boat is very nice, the skipper was informative and made it fun. We saw three grottos (not the blue one as it is not part of this tour). He maneuvered the boat so well through all and even played André Bocelli music for us as we went through one of the grottos which made it so special. We had the best time and loved the whole experience.
    Perfect experience!

    Best way to spend the afternoon in Capri! The views of the island from the sea are gorgeous and we got to swim a couple times! Absolutely recommend this!
    Nice but short boat ride
    BriWould_G, Sept 2023
    The tour is two hrs from dock to dock. They sell you on blue grotto but when you board the boat captain says the line is too long so he doesn’t want to do it. Too much bait and switch for my taste. Alcoholic beverages mean a snort of limoncello in a plastic disposable cup. The boat stops and we had a twenty minute swim in 25 m of incredibly clear Mediterranean water. It’s was very choppy so the two hrs were long enough. Boat was good and the captain was good too.
    100% recommended!
    Carmen_R, Sept 2023
    Amazing tour! I highly recommend doing this tour first thing in the morning- its only 2 hours and you get to see the main and most emblematic. caves/rock formations of Capri. Francesco was very nice and the boat was modern and very clean. 100% recommended!
    Worth the money
    Melanie_B, Sept 2023
    Beautiful boat, and a great driver. Saw several scenic spots and didn’t feel rushed. The groups are small so it’s very comfortable
    Must do while at Capri
    Steve_L, Aug 2023
    Best value for money in all of Capri ! 2hrs round the island, stopped to swim ,saw all of cave except "Blu"as it was a 90min wait Vincenzo was an amazing captain
    Karla_R, Aug 2023
    Well disappointed. Captain was not engaged with us at all and he will only pull up to cave for us to see it and back up. Not even explaining where we went. I originally had a different reservation but they canceled on me. So I had to book this last min. wish I had someone else and a private tour because the people that came with us 2 couples were very rude at the beginning and once they noticed we also spoke English they changed their tune as they were talking smack about us for not moving which we did what the captain said. Then they became friendly after we jumped in the water. It was very awkward. We just wanted to have fun and make memories. Then once we swam for literally 10 min the captain just threw 3 bags of chips on the seat. Like here eat it if you want to. This experience was horrible and wished I had an awesome experience as I wanted my parents and kids to enjoy it and had the same experience I had back in April when I came to Capri. Would recommend if you have a different captain and different people with you.
    Do not waste your time.

    The boat driver was a nice guy BUT we did not go to any caves. He said that the blue grotto was too crowded. So we just drove the boat around the shore and then anchored where he said we could swim. Very unremarkable and a waste of time.
    Wow-Book now

    Wow What an experience, the skipper couldn't have been better. There was 8 of us in total and we booked 24hours before in the height of peak season. Received a text an hour before to meet in a cafe. Not too much, left us to chat, gave us all the relevant info. We didn't go to the Blue Grotto but took us to somewhere very similar. I will recommend this to anyone that visits Capri, so reasonable
    Anoud_A, Aug 2023
    Blue grotto is not included We had fun and the tour was 2 hours Boat is nice and clean We enjoyed it but they served only alcoholic drinks and we don’t drink alcohol and couldn’t find anything to drink Other than that it was great
    nothing special
    Katarina_C, Aug 2023
    Nothing special about this ride, if you are at Capri for a short time you may just skip it. Captain speaks barely few sentences during the ride, cant’t hear anything, hardly even stops to take a picture. For drink you get only water and a glass of limuncelo.
    Best Boat Tour
    Rebecca_H, Aug 2023
    Our group of 6 had a great time!! The boat was clean and had lots of room, our skipper was great fun! We really loved the swim time and the different grottos - white, green, red coral.
    Five stars!
    Chelsie_S, Aug 2023
    Everything was amazing and Beautiful! The captain was so nice and explained all the cool sights we saw!
    No visit to capri is good enough with a cruise around the island!
    Foteini_V, Aug 2023
    The best way to l enjoy Capri's coastline. Unfortunately. The beaches are all Rocky so it's not easy to enjoy the water and the cruise was the best way to do so! Our captain was very polite and he let us swim in the best spots around the island. I totally recommend it!
    Great trip with some caveats
    Richard_R, Aug 2023
    Unfortunately we couldn't go see the blue gratto the day that we went due to increased wave activity but the rest of the trip was fantastic. The only discrepancy i have with the description of the tour is that snacks and alcohol are included. They did have snacks on the boat however no one was aware that they were there and alcohol was not included but instead you could purchase it at the meeting location prior to boarding the boat. Other than that a very pleasant experience and would definitely recommend.
