What To Expect

Start relaxing immediately with a glass of Prosecco after you board, as the captain takes care of everything. During the cruise, your private 33-foot (10-meter) boat goes no faster than 25 knots, so you can sit back and enjoy the views of picturesque coastal towns along the way.

All cruises offer a pause for swimming or snorkeling before heading back to enjoy the stunning views on the charming village Positano while the sky changes in beautiful pastel colors.

As your boat cruises along, sip Prosecco and other beverages and nibble on light snacks, including some local specialties such as tarallucci (a breadstick or cookie in a twisted or circular shape). Towels and snorkeling gear are provided during the cruise as well.

After the sun dips below the mountains, your captain guides the boat back to your departure port of Positano.

Our captain Saulo was great! We experienced the beauty of the Amalfi Coast with our own fun photo session. Enjoyed a wonderful bottle of Prosecco & fruit. The best evening watching the sunset in a fabulous place. Take the trip!

I booked this Cruze for our 25th anniversary. Our captain, Sandro, was fabulous and made this trip so special. He was informative, kind personable and played the perfect music for our trip.

Relaxing private slow cruise along the coast. Opportunities for swimming and some great sights along the way.
Beautiful sunset cruise with friendly team
paigefilmeck, Jul 2022
Our sunset cruise with Bluestar Positano was one of the highlights of our entire Italy trip! We were nervous that we wouldn't get to go, as it had just started lightly raining before our tour. We arrived a little bit early to the tent, and Elisabeth and the staff were super friendly and arranged for us to go out a little early to try to avoid the storm. Our captain Salvo gave us a great tour of the coast despite the weather and made us feel safe the entire time. We also enjoyed hearing him talk about the different landmarks and towns. When it was time to head back, the storm picked up, but he got us back safely and securely, and we were met at the dock by Blue Star's staff with an umbrella to escort us to a nearby restaurant to stay dry. I cannot thank Blue Star enough for going above and beyond to make us feel safe and comfortable. We had a blast and loved getting to see beautiful Positano from the sea. It was a wonderful way to spend our anniversary evening, and we cannot wait to come back and do it again. Highly recommend this great family-run business with beautiful boats and an amazing team.

The views were breathtaking. We were lucky enough to be the only ones on board, so we had a private tour of the coast which was perfect for our honeymoon. This was by far our favorite excursion and we’ll cherish this memory forever.
Book this now!

Beautiful views. Romantic experience with the champagne, strawberries and Positano sunset. Easy to find and our captain was not overbearing, but available when needed.
Dangerous Experience
Kitty_K, Oct 2021
My daughter and I booked this 1.5 hour sunset cruise as one of the culmination experiences to our eight day Positano visit. But the cruise quickly became a scary venture, as our captain, Esteban, was struggling to stay awake. He nodded off at the wheel several times, causing us much anxiety as his only passengers. We wondered if he was sleep deprived, had imbibed too much before our voyage or had ingested some other substance. We were the only passengers on board, and we wanted a private cruise due to Covid thinking it would be safer for us, but we quickly realized we were in a dangerous situation and wondered how we would reach shore safely if he completely passed out and we could not rouse him. Frightening! We yelled out questions to him about buildings on the coast to try and keep him awake. At one point he nodded forward juggling his cell phone in his left hand almost dropping it. We had hoped this would be a glorious celebration cruise to end our trip but rather it was filled with worry and fear. We could hardly wait to disembark.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Dear Kitty! Following our conversation on the phone I am happy that you know that on your boat day unfortunately we were not able to offer our service. This evening our boat had a motor problem and we had to call another company to help us out. I am very sorry for your bad experience, especially as we called a much bigger and very luxurious boat with all comfort to be sure you will feel great and enjoy. Unfortunatly were humans work mistakes can happen - we forwarded your feedback also to Stefano. Again we are very sorry, that you were not able to experience our top service but I am sure we will meet again in Positano! All the best, Elisabeth
Breathtaking, amazing and beautiful
Adrienne_V, Aug 2021
Amazing experience! Hermes our capitan was awesome! Very knowledgeable and friendly. It was even better that my husband and I were the only passengers on the sunset cruise.
Henna_P, Jul 2021
Mario was amazing! His accordion surprise was the icing on the cake! Very comfortable boat ride, got to relax my feet, lie down, and enjoy the boat ride. He took great pictures of us and have us information about everything we passed. Definitely worth the experience! I booked it as an anniversary gift for my husband
A beautiful sunset cruise for all of our friends the night before our wedding in Positano

We had a private tour for our wedding at sunset and it was gorgeous! Celebrated with hazelnut cake and prosecco. Highly recommend this company!
A highlight
Jennifer_P, Jul 2019
I'm so glad we decided to do the sunset cruise, it was flawless. Our captain was great, he even took pictures for us and took his own pictures and then texted them to us later. We got to swim in a few caves. The snacks and drinks were great. Highly recommend!!
