Duration: 6 hours
*This tour operates from March to November.
Embark in the morning on your private boat from Amalfi and cruise through the heart of the Amalfi
Coastline. You will see the private villas and crumbling towers, the quintessential fishing villages climbing up the mountainside, clear, turquoise coves that beckon you to jump in for a swim, and the Mediterranean Sea all around you...the views and the beauty are magical. Throughout the day you will have the opportunity to stop and swim, visit various villages, and experience the beauty of the unique coastline.
Here are some highlights of the tour:
Pandora's Grotto: A cave just past the town of Maiori, accessible only via the sea.
Maiori: A large beach and sidewalk full of shops and cafes.
Minori: Another small, idyllic fishing village of the Amalfi Coast and home to “Villa Romana” the ruins of a Roman villa.
Marmorata: A fraction of Ravello, Marmorata is my favorite part of the coastline, very green and beautiful with an almost tropical feel. There is a little waterfall tucked into a small lagoon, ideal for a swim.
Atrani: The smallest village in all of Italy, a quaint cobblestone piazzetta with a small fountain surrounded by lovely cafes and a spacious beach.
Amalfi: The most famous town on the Amalfi Coast, a bustling village with a beautiful cathedral dedicated to St. Andrew and home to lovely hotels, shops, restaurants and an historic paper mill/museum which produces organic paper.
Conca dei Marini: You will pass a beautiful bay under the former villa of Sophia Loren, as well as a natural arc in the rocks dubbed the "Lover's Arc". This is one of the most beautiful spots on the Amalfi Coast and was voted to be in the top 100 most beautiful villages in all of Italy.
Furore: Here you will pass a wonderful turquoise Fjord with a bridge where a diving competition is held every year. It is also the location where Roberto Rossellini filmed "Amore" beside Anna Magnani.
Praiano: A typical Amalfi Coast fishing village that is built onto two sides of the mountain and home to the sea cave dubbed "La Grotta Africana".
Positano: The view of Positano from the sea is one of the most famous views in the world. Cruise along the coastline and pass the world-renown 5 star San Pietro Hotel, small hidden coves and beaches where you can stop for a swim off the boat if you would like.
Li Galli Islands: A set of private islands off the coast of Positano where Ulysses heard the song of the sirens as he passed through. There is an underwater nature reserve in the middle of the archipelago and a beautiful view of Positano as well as Capri.
One of the best parts about chartering a boat is that the captain is a local of the area. While he is not a licensed tour guide, he is knowledgeable of the area and will be more than happy to provide information on what you are seeing as well as insider tips on things to do.
Meeting point will be at a central location. Details will be provided in final documents.
