Awesome experience!
Brent_J, Oct 2022
This was an extremely memorable experience. The guide was extremely helpful before we boarded the boat. We cruised from Almafi all the way to Capri and then stopped off at Noreno for lunch at Pappone. The weather was perfect so we didn’t experience choppy water. That said, I would not suggest this boat rental in windy conditions as the boat is very small.
Highly recommend. Great experience.

My wife and I had so much fun. If you want to experience a privacy, boat ride experience, & views of the Amalfi coast this is the best/most affordable way. Domenico and his crew were very friendly and answered all our questions. This was my first time driving a boat so was a bit nervous, but it was fun. We brought food and drinks and there is an ice chest onboard. My only suggestion because I read other peoples reviews that suggested we drive all the way to Capri: If you are a “first timer” and want to do more relaxing/picture taking/drinking/etc, don’t drive all the way to Capri. You can just ride along Amalfi to Praiano to Positano and get great views and have time to jump in the water & eat. Although it was a fun experience the water was a bit more choppy by the island AND it took us longer than expected. When we first started (around 12pm) we were driving so cautiously it took us awhile to arrive, so toward the end we kind of had to “rush” to get back by 5pm. Also I would recommend a speaker & a usb charger if you are going to take a lot of pictures and videos like we did. Overall we would definitely do it again.
Amazing experience

Amazing experience. Recommended to everyone. For $300 you can get your own private boat for the day and get to see the coast on your own schedule. People spoke great English and helped us feel comfortable with driving the boat before leaving the port. You will have to pay for gas at the end. Anywhere between €40-100 depending on how far you go. Only bad thing is water was chopper than expected so if you get sea sick it may not be best for you.
Our best day in Italy was on a boat!
Timothy_M, Sep 2022
The boat was fun and easy to drive. The staff were very professional and helpful at all times. We drove the boat nonstop all day and the fill up for fuel was 65 euros. Not bad at all! We highly recommend this company. They were great to work with and stayed in touch with us to prepare us for our Amalfi Coast adventure. You really have to see this beautiful landscape from a boat.
Best way to see Amalfi
Eve_G, Sep 2022
This is simply the most fun and the best way to see Amalfi, bare in mind fuel at the end costs about €50 extra but make the day of it and bring a picnic, it’s very romantic as well
Beautiful scenery. Easy...
Kristan_J, Aug 2022
Beautiful scenery. Easy to check in and out. Great recommendations from operator. Would happily do again. Made it to Capri, spent about $80 on gas.
Great deal
Yovanny_C, Aug 2022
Great experience for the price, definitely one of the better deals in the Amalfi coast. Very clear instructions on how to get to the boat and what to do around the coast. We were provided a cooler the boat was fast and plenty of space for just me and my gf
Beautiful coastal views!
Tyler_S, Aug 2022
Wow! If you are in the Amalfi Coast area, you have got to do this! By far the best way to explore the coast and see from a beautiful perspective. The boat had a sunshade which was a life saver! They quickly walked through how to use the boat then sent us off to navigate the sea by ourselves. We explored up to a small island and down past a few other cities. Would highly recommend!! If you aren't comfortable driving the boat yourself they do have guided tours, though being able to have freedom to explore was great. Note: if you get car/sea sick, bring Dramamine or similar motion sickness medicine. This expertise definitely worth it!
One of our favorite days
Andrew_A, Aug 2022
Having the flexibility to take the boat out on our own to explore the coast was perfect for us. The boat was great, the staff was helpful and the whole process was very simple.
Highlight of our vacation!

My niece and I rented a boat for the day and it was a top 10 day of a lifetime! I’m a 62 year old female with boating experience and my niece is 25, so anyone can participate in this adventure! We drove from Amalfi all the way to Capri. Anyone with any boating experience will be able to operate the 21 ft center console with a Bimini, a breeze to drive. We stopped in coves to swim and snorkel and have lunch and enjoyed the super yachts moored off Capri. There is a small cooler on board so bring ice if you can ( we didn’t know about the cooler and didn’t bring ice). You can also plug in your phone charger which we didn’t know about either. If you have a portable speaker, I would bring that along as well to enjoy music on your cruise. Check in was a breeze and they drive you out of the busy Amalfi harbor to open water so you don’t have to navigate around the large ferry’s and other traffic in the harbor. Afterwards they pick you up outside harbor and drive you to gas dock to refill. It was an absolutely amazing day and I would recommend to anyone going to the Amalfi coast! It was the highlight of our vacation.

This boat rental was amazing, it was the best part of our trip. The employees were helpful and the boat was super easy to drive. We drove all along the coast and saw all of the main towns.

Amalfi boat to see Amalfi coast, Fantastico!
William_S, May 2022
Exploring the coastline from Amalfi to Capri by self drive boat was a highlight of our trip. Domenico was very responsive with questions prior to our arrival & friendly & informative the day we used his boat to see the coast. Great experience from start to finish. Highly recommend.
Great Boat Rental Service

Jazlynn_P, May 2022
This was such a memorable experience. I highly recommended booking with them. Everything was so efficient and easy I LOVED this boat so much, i plan to book again on my trip!!!!!!!!!!!
Fun but expensive.
Kristie_E, May 2022
Really easy boat to drive and hire, a lovely day. However we where disappointed to pay €70 for petrol at the end for 1/4 of a tank, I don't think this was accurate and we might have been ripped off.
Response from Host, May 2022
Hi I would like to clarify that petrol is not included in the price of the boat. When you leave in the morning there is a full tank of petrol, at the end of the day you can fill up again at the petrol station located in the port of Amalfi, and you pay exactly the real consumption of the petrol consumed. Our client used the boat all day, sailed the entire Amalfi coast, and only used 34 liters of petrol, it is a very modest consumption for the navigation that was made. Perhaps the customer has not calculated that in Italy and specifically in the petrol stations that are in the ports, the price of petrol is € 2.20 per liter. In the United States, the price of gasoline is in gallons, it is totally different than in Italy, it is not possible to make a comparison with the price of gasoline paid in Italy. Those who are experienced in boats know that using a boat all day and doing at least 30 or 40 miles with a boat and using 34 liters of petrol is totally normal, indeed perhaps it is below standard consumption, because we all use engines of new 4-stroke generation and consumption is not excessive. I advise our valued customer to update himself with a Yamaha engine technician and to get the boat's cunsumed good before claiming that he was robbed from the gas station. Best regards Domenico
Un bel après midi le long de la côte

Il est dommage que l’on puisse pas accoster sur des bords de plage. Nous avions une ancre mais nous avons dû la laisser en mer car elle n’était pas assez puissante lors de notre accostage pour déjeuner.
