  • Capri: Boat Trip Around the Island and Blue Grotto Visit

    1. Capri: Boat Trip Around the Island and Blue Grotto Visit

    Set sail from the port at Marina Grande and enjoy a relaxing cruise around the rugged coast of Capri. See the highlights of the glamorous island as you pass the historic Punta Carena Lighthouse and the legendary Bagni di Tiberio (Baths of Tiberius) near a former villa of the Roman emperor. Pass the sea caves of the White Grotto and Green Grotto, named for the color of the water and the light effects of the sun. Admire the impressive sea stacks of the Faraglioni rocks and get lots of information about the island from your skipper along the way. Enter the famous Blue Grotto through a small entrance and continue to a large cave under the sea, where you will be amazed by the intense blue of the water caused by a natural phenomenon involving the sun.

    Great experience. The blue grotto is paid for apart on the boat, 14 euros at the entrance and another 20 to the boatman who was highly entertaining. The blue grotto tour lasts 4 minutes. The trip around the island lasts about 90 minutes and was very interesting

  • From Sorrento: Capri Boat Trip with visit to the Blue Grotto

    4. From Sorrento: Capri Boat Trip with visit to the Blue Grotto

    This tour has been designed to give you the best chance of visiting the Blue Grotto, one of the most famous attractions of the beautiful island of Capri. This unique sea cave, formed over the millennia by the erosive action of the sea, owes its name and its beauty to the intense blue color of the crystalline water. In Roman times it was used as a marine nymphaeum. To enter the cave, visitors climb aboard a small rowing boat, however, the weather and sea conditions, unfortunately, do not always allow the opening of the cave, in which case it will only be visible from the outside. An early departure allows you to reach the Blue Grotto, the first stop of the tour, at around 09:00 AM, the opening time of the Grotto. In the rush hour the waiting time for visiting the Blue Grotto could be longer than 3 hours.  The day continues with the tour of the whole island reaching the Faraglioni, the W...

    We had Michael who was excellent! He made sure we were the first ones at the Blue Grotto and even ten mins later there were major lines. He also pointed out many views, islands and attractions. He was also high energy and just great fun. Loved it. Worth it.

  • Capri: Private Gozzo Boat Island Tour

    5. Capri: Private Gozzo Boat Island Tour

    Sailing on a boat for a tour around the island of Capri is the most amazing way to explore the coastal region of this stunning region. You can admire its dramatic cliffs and spectacular rock formations as you relax in your own private Gozzo boat. Many tourists are completely unaware that the Blue Grotto is just one of a whole host of multi-coloured caves and rock formations which can be admired during a tour around the island. A boat trip around the coast of Capri also offers to its passengers the opportunity to visit bays which are totally inaccessible by land. You will discover peaceful havens far from the crowded beaches, which are the perfect places to enjoy a dip in the sea.

    Wonderful experience! Our Guide Giuliano was really kind and the bath at the Green Cave was one of the best in my life The gozzo is the perfect boat to see Capri by sea

What people are saying about Blue Grotto

We really enjoyed our boating trip to Capri. We went around the island with several stops for swimming. We landed on Marina Piccola and then had 4 hours on Capri. We were able to go up to Monte Solaro and enjoyed the great views. We left and Marina Piccola, went for a swim, then boated through the famous arch. Antonio and Raphael could not have been nicer or more accommodating.
