Then, once passed Duoglio and Santa Croce beaches, you will stop by the "Arc of Lovers", a natural rock arch created millions of years ago by the erosion of the sea whose shape recalls two elephants in the act of kissing.

My friend and I had the most amazing experience with this boat trip tour. All of the staff was so helpful, friendly, and trust-worthy. We felt so comfortable and safe as two 22 year old girls traveling alone. The boat tour had about 5 other couples on board who were sweet. They provided drinks, snacks, and helpful information about the islands. 10/10 recommend

Amazing day on the water and on Capri with Antonino, who was a gracious host and a wonderful guide, telling us stories and sharing Prosecco throughout the day.

Driver was a gentleman, very friendly and helpful. Beautiful boat and worth every penny. Amazing coastline couldn't recommend this trip anymore.

Great excursion, the Amalfi Coast is best appreciated by the sea, the landscapes are magnificent.

Very nice to see Amalfi and Positano in a day. I thought it was a nice addition to our vacation!
