Boat tour
gamillers, Oct 2022
Excellent service, beautiful scenery. Great way to spend the day. Our captain was very knowledgeable and went over and above to make our day very special. He noticed we were out of ice, immediately made a phone call and a dingy showed up port side with a bucket of ice in a matter of minutes! Highly recommend!
Amazing cities of the Amalfi Coast!
Kevin_G, Oct 2022
Our capitan, Luigi, was a great wealth of information and patience. His ability to navigate the small spaces was impeccable! The views and the waters were beautiful, although the water was a bit chilly (it was invigorating! ). Would do another outing with him any time!

Excellent day! Amazing views of the coast. Driver friendly and knowledgeable. Boat alway under control.
Great Day Trip to Amalfi!

We did this day trip during our time in Positano. The booking and pickup were so easy! We checked in at the main pier in Positano and were advised where we would pick up the boat. Our capitan, Emilio, was great! As we sailed along the coast to the town of Amalfi, he pointed out various points of interest and gave us information about what we were seeing. We stopped once on the way there for a swim stop, which was so nice! We were let off in Amalfi around lunch time. It was a perfect amount of time to walk around a bit and grab lunch. On the way back, we had another swim stop. We also had a prosecco toast at sunset! The boat was stocked with waters and beers also for the day. Our group was small (about 10 other people) and we quickly made friends with each other! It was really a great day. Would highly recommend this if you're in the Positano or Praiano area. It is also a great value given that it is a full day activity. We would definitely do this again!
Superb day - highly recommend

We loved being on the boat and viewing the coastline. The directions were very concise making it easy to find our meeting place. It was well organized getting to the boat. We stopped and swam at three different swimming spots. We stopped twice going to Amalfi and once coming back from Amalfi. The swimming was the highlight. The skipper did not encourage us to do the emerald grotto tour, in his opinion, it wasn’t worth it. He did bring us to another spot to swim but I would have liked to been given the option to do the emerald tour. He did not make it clear if we all had to do the emerald tour as a group or we could’ve done it individually. We were dropped off in Amalfi for about 3 hours. You could either walk around , shop , eat , or tour Duomo de Amalfi cathedral which was right in town , or go to the beach. I would highly recommend this tour!!
Awesome Day, Don’t Miss This !!

My teenage daughter and I had a really awesome day on this boat trip ! Boat is spacious enough to spread out a bit, it’s super clean and very comfortable. Meeting spot on Positano beach was super easy, especially considering how overwhelming this port can be. Driver, Christian was awesome. I am so happy that we did this and I would do it again if I had more time here! This was by far the highlight of our trip !
A must do!!!

Too crowded
Rita_S, Sep 2021
We have seen all important places of the coast and the skipper told us interesting facts. The boat was with more than 20 people too crowded - especially in times of Corona. Just half of the group could have a place outside.
Good but ..

It was an absolutely amazing day ! From the boat ride, to amazing views to stop in the town (which also has a beach if anyone doesn’t feel like walking around).
Paul_J, Sep 2021
We booked our boat trip on 11th of September 2021 for the Amalfi coast. The boat was very stable and in a very good condition. Staff was friendly and explained everything in a clear manner. Thank you Adrea for a lovely day! If we need to take a boat trip again, we know where to find you!
Perfect Amalfi Coast Experience
Courtney_H, Sep 2021
This tour is the perfect day tour for a quick trip on the coast. We stopped to swim multiple times, stopped at the emerald grotto, and were able to walk around Amalfi for 2 hours. Included drinks and towels, and the guide was great! Highly recommend
Amalfi Coast
Vincent_T, Sep 2021
Nice excursion, A bit overpriced for what we do. If you want to see the coastline and stop a couple times for a short swim this will be good for you. You also get around 2 to 3 hours in Almafi on your own. The captain was very nice. We rated it good however not excellent. This would be better suited for travelers new to the Almafi Coast.
Great way to spend a day enjoying the Amalfi coast.
William_C, Aug 2021
Italians are never in a hurry. I felt like a real Italian today. A leisurely boat trip up the Amalfi coast. Perfect weather and a perfect day. Positano and Amalfi are wonderful places. The boat trip was great. Gesseppi made the trip perfect. My wife and I both thought it was great and highly recommend this tour.

Nazif_G, Aug 2021
Great captain, very informative, friendly and positive attitude. Amazing experience to see the Amalfi Coast. Got to see an awesome cave, swim in the ocean, eat great food and do some shopping in one of the islands for a couple of hours. Overall a great and complete tour, will definitely tell my friends about it and come back to do it all again. Thank you captain.
Top notch experience
Juliet_R, Aug 2021
The current was too dangerous to pass through the grottos but they made up for it with an extra stop for a unique swim experience :) We also got to pop champagne off the back of the boat and celebrate together. An awesome vibe!
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Dear Juliet, it was a pleasure to have you on board with us. The sea was a little bit rough, but our skippers are very knoledgeable and we are very happy you appreciated it :) I hope to see you again
