Fantastic trio, one of the highlights of our holiday, we used the transfer coach, driver was on time and very friendly, boat crew were friendly and kept us well informed through the whole day, Capri boat trip takes you right round the island, spending quality time at all the natural features, enjoyed our time on the island , plenty to see and do. We would highly recommend this trip.

Great Experience and Service
Gina_L, Sept 2023
Amazing trip! The tour guide was fun and informative and the captain was incredible. We had such a great time exploring the island of Capri and going for a swim off the boat after. Highly recommend this trip, and as a bonus it ends with homemade limoncello!
A beautiful, worry free tour seeing lots of sights with time to explore.
Anthony_V, Sept 2023
The tour was very quick to reply to questions on how to get there before the tour and had transport available. The tour guide Lucile (I may have spelled that or remembered her name wrong) was very friendly and helpful, sharing plenty of interesting stories on the tour and keeping us informed every step of the way. Our captain, Umberto was also great, keeping the boat in position for plenty of great photos. We got free time in Capri where our guide gave us some ideas to explore and then had a refreshing dip just off the coast of Capri. It was very fun and beautiful.
Great day
Jennifer_T, Sept 2023
Lucia and Antonio were great. Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Book transfer through the same company from Sorrento as taxi to get there was double the price.

Our tour guide Fabrizio and Captain Gabrielle were entertaining, hospitable, and knowledgeable about Capri and history and gave us good pointers such as avoid the blue grotto as it was an hour wait and only 5 minutes in the grotto. We swam twice and LOVED the shops in capri even if expensive - would highly recommend Capri! if I could do this over - I would take a Dramamine or anti nausea pill before the boat!
Great experience
Deanna_N, Sept 2023
This experience is a must if you are planning on doing a day trip to Capri! The tour company picked us up from our hotel and dropped us off as well (10 euro per person). The boat ride is about an hour around Capri and then they drop you off to spend 4 hours on the island! We recommend going right to Anacapri and doing the chair lift! It was empty and we were the first ones up and the view is absolutely gorgeous! We unfortunately couldn’t do the blue grotto due to rough sea conditions but that was okay we still saw the green grotto and others. After 4 hours on the island the boat took us out to swim and that was really fun!
Ok day
Stacey_T, Sept 2023
Trip was as advertised. It was a nice to get to Capri early in the morning to beat the crowds and we got to the blue grotto in the afternoon and waited the 45 min to get in. It was beautiful. One swimming stop before heading back to sorrento. My complaint is that there were 2 boats, one English and one Spanish and English. I was on the Spanish and English boat but I was the only one that spoke English. The guide tried her best to explain everything in English to me but it definitely took away from the experience, especially since I was travelling solo.
This is a must do!
John_D, Sept 2023
This is a must!! We read the reviews before having our short break in Sorrento and this was at the top of our list and was definitely our favourite! Very well organised and friendly staff. We were picked up and dropped off from our hotel which made things much easier. Swam in the sea a few times and although we didn’t get to the blue grotto, it wasn’t worth the 2-3 hour wait. Plenty of time in Capri, wandering through the beautiful small lanes. Would highly recommend this.
This trip is worth it!
Phiona_E, Sept 2023
This trip is worth it!!! One of the top highlights from our 2 week stay in Italy. From the pick up, to the ride and swims around Capri, this will sure be an amazing experience. Staff was informative and very polite. Highly recommend!
Vipul_M, Aug 2023
This tour was excellent as described. Everything was on time and tour was very entertaining. We were able to see Blue Grotto since we were there early and wether was good! Must do .
Amazing day!
Bo_P, Aug 2023
Everything went smoothly from pickup to drop-off. Our guide Italo was brilliant and 4 hours was the perfect amount of time to spend on Capri. Blue Grotto wasn’t really the entrance fee and tip but that is with hindsight.
Amazing trip
Tori_E, Aug 2023
My partner and I loved our trip! Our tour guide was welcoming and funny and knowledgeable. We swam in the beautiful grotto and enjoyed the beverages on board. We would book again
Worth it
Joanna_T, Aug 2023
This was a great experience. We had booked a larger boat to Capri at first, but decided to cancel that tour and switched to this one due to the smaller group size. We are so glad we did! The boat operators were friendly and kind. They gave us some information about the various locations we passed on the way to Capri. We were able to stop 2x to jump out and swim. We were offered beer and water on board, and also treated to some homemade limoncello at the end of the day. Great trip!
Best day!!
Catherine_S, Aug 2023
Our experience was amazing! We were first in line to see the Blue Grotto and was able to watch the skippers get ready for the day. It was perfect! Itilo was in charge and he was awesome!
So worth it! :)
Rebecca_L, Aug 2023
We had an amazing day, from beginning to end. It’s such a good trip to do, to explore Capri and swim in the ocean as well as visit the blue grotto - although you do have to pay an additional €18 for entry and €15 for port tax and the transfer from the pick up point (which was an added bonus as we were staying relatively far from the port). Staff were very friendly and the boat was beautiful! We would definitely recommend to make your holiday!
Capri ♥️
Marjorie_N, Aug 2023
it was real fun. the water is so nice & blue and capri is awesome. the tour was amazing. there was just so many people to see blue grotto but next time ♥️
Wonderful day on the wayer
Merrin_C, Aug 2023
Amazing day. Far better tan we imagined. Lovely small group, nearly half Australians which was great. Plenty of free time and the sights were amazing. A very skilful Captain thank you. Our guide Italo was terrific. Very helpful, knowledgeable and a great sense of humour. The pick up and drop off made our day hassle free thank you
Frederico and Antonio...
Samantha_M, Aug 2023
Frederico and Antonio were great! The tour description should tell you that you need to bring euros (in cash) to pay for transportation and the municipal fee, or just include it in the overall price! Also, it should state how much the Blue Grotto costs (also cash only!) so people know what to expect.
Amazing trip to Anna Capri 2023
violette_a, Aug 2023
Fernando and Antonio were amazing crew!!! They made the experience so much fun!! Fernando ‘s information and guidance about the trip and Capri Island were very helpful
Green Grotti, Capri Boat Tour
Suraj_S, July 2023
Wonderful experience throughout. Must do when in Sorrento. Only reason for 4 stars was that we missed the blue Grotto for which we had come from India. The wait time was mentioned to be around 1 hour so it was skipped but other parts of the tour were memorable.
Incredible day in Capri
Amanda_E, July 2023
I traveled to Italy in a friend group of 4 girls and we used this boat service for a day trip from Sorrento to Capri. We had the best time ever, the crew was very kind and the boat experience was amazing. Coming from an area outside of Sorrento, we dealt with train delays to get to the pickup spot for the boat. The person picking us up was kind enough to wait for us to arrive, which we greatly appreciated! Our favorite part was the Green Grotto, the water was insanely beautiful. We felt like 4 hours on land was plenty of time to explore the island. We weren't able to do Blue Grotto due to the line but didn't mind since everything else was so amazing. The captain even took us to see a waterfall as a surprise on the drive back to Sorrento. Definitely recommend this company!
