Duration: 6 hours
*This tour operates from March to November.
Embark in the morning on your private boat from Sorrento and head along the coastline towards the Island of Capri. You will see the private villas and coves of the Sorrento Coast on one side and the island of Capri in front of you, with Naples and Mt. Vesuvius to your right as you cross the Bay of Naples. The views are spectacular. Throughout the day you will have the opportunity to stop and swim, visit Capri and Anacapri, and experience the beauty of the unique coastline.
Here are some highlights of the tour:
The Blue Grotto: Known for its electric blue light, it was once the private bath house of Roman Emperor Tiberius before it was abandoned for centuries, feared to be cursed.
Green Grotto: Turquoise waters with a natural arc leading to the other side of the grotto, opening to what some say is the best swimming lagoon on the island.
White Grotto: Named for the white stalactites that adorn the cave, it sits directly below a higher grotto that has a natural rock formation in the shape of the Virgin Mary.
Marina Piccola: A popular docking spot for yachts of the rich and famous with a view of the Faraglioni that must be experienced.
I Faraglioni: The symbol of Capri and the backdrop to many designer ads, most notably D&G Light Blue perfume. The captain may even boat through the center hole of one of the rocks!
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.
