Amalfi Coast: Boat and Snorkeling Tour in Small Group

4. Amalfi Coast: Boat and Snorkeling Tour in Small Group

Once everybody has jumped on board and had a little briefing about how you're going to spend the day, you will be ready to set off to the west towards Positano. The route will take you along Amalfi Coast’s finest beaches as well as close to natural rock arches and into sea caves, giving you the opportunity to admire the old watch towers that dot the entire length of this coast. You will pause at beaches reachable only by sea and have time to go snorkeling or swimming in crystal-clear waters and into grottoes. Not too far from the starting point, right after leaving the center of Amalfi, you will get close to the Saint Andrew Grotto, a huge natural sea cave full of stalactites named after the patron saint of Amalfi (Andrea). 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. Up to not too long ago young couples used to get married on the top of it. A little later you will cruise in front of the ancient fishing village of Conca dei Marini, passing near the villa of Sophia Loren and seeing the historic hotel “Il Saraceno” located on La Vite Beach. From here you will also have a stunning view of the Santa Rosa Monastery, a former convent now converted into a luxury hotel, once home of the Dominican nuns. It's right in the kitchens of this monastery that the delicious "Sfogliatella Santa Rosa" was born, a shell-shaped pastry filled with ricotta cheese-based cream and little dried fruit pieces, typical of the local culinary tradition (don't forget to taste it before leaving!). Once past the seaside of Conca dei Marini you will enter its western basin, where you will have a beautiful view of Furore and Praiano villages and the islands of Li Galli and Capri, together with the well-known Faraglioni Rocks. Further inside this basin we will find the little Runghetiello Grotto and its tiny beach, where you will anchor for a break to go swimming or snorkeling. You will reach then the famous Furore Fjord, the only natural fjord in Italy and location of the international diving competition "MarMeeting": every year in July, professional divers from around the world compete by jumping from the top of the bridge which is 28 meters high. Navigating a little farther onward to the village of Praiano you will be able to have a close look at a bigger sea cave, the Africana Grotto, where the water has a distinctive blue color thanks to the unique refraction of light. Finally you will go round Capo Sottile and continue cruising to Positano, where you will have another break for snorkeling at a beach reachable only by the sea and so not crowded at all: La Porta. The return trip to Amalfi will give you a different but equally remarkable view of both sea and land.

The Amalfi coast is beautiful, but it's best experienced by boat. My wife and I were visiting for our honeymoon and had the best time meeting new friends from around the world. Rafa was a fantastic guide, he took us town by town from Amalfi to Positano exploring highlights both natural and built. Rafa's experience in the area really showed as he described local features like grottos, famous businesses and hotels. The two stops for swimming and snorkeling were a great way to break up the boat tour. We enjoyed food and snacks along the way. I can't recommend this tour enough! Support a local and his new business while getting to know the Amalfi coast!

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

Had a blast with Antonio and his captain. Lovely experience with a good amount of time along the coastline to explore the towns. So glad we took this tour over the bus option!

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

The whole experience was a blast. Raphael did a great job and was very informative. He was laid back and just fun to be around.
