Amalfi Coast: Boat and Snorkeling Tour in Small Group

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

Board an Amalfitan Gozzo boat for a scenic ride along the Amalfi coast. Admire natural wonders, including the Natural Arch and Faraglioni Rocks. Swim and snorkel or relax on the shores of secluded beaches. 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 watchtowers 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 Saint Andrew's 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.

What people are saying about Conca dei Marini

Absolutely beautiful experience! Really easy to find and the lads were great hosts. Drinks on board and information about all of the stops along the way. I brought my daughter for her 18th birthday and she wanted to swim in the sea….she’s on such a high after today. Snorkelling equipment was supplied and floating devices. The boat was beautiful, comfortable and not overcrowded. My daughter ended up feeling a little sea sick on the way back but she put her head on my shoulder and slept it off on our return to Amalfi - absolutely perfect Thanks to the hosts for a stunning day Highly recommend

This boat tour was the highlight of our stay in Amalfi. An unforgettable experience that you should not miss if you visit Amalfi!! The group size was small and our tour guide Federico did a great job of explaining all the interesting sites along the way. Prosecco, beer, limoncello, water and fruit were offered during the 4 hour tour. We also stopped in two beautiful locations to swim and snorkel (floating devices and snorkels were provided).

A brilliant experience. The coastline is amazing and the two captains, Rafael and Frederico were very entertaining and took good care of everyone on the tour. Would definitely recommend it to anyone staying on the Amalfi coast. By boat is the best way to appreciate its beauty.

I am a concierge/travel specialist and I make travel arrangements for my clients. And my client said it was one of the best boating days she had experienced during her whole trip!

Would highly recommend! you get to see beautiful sites the hosts were really funny and you get a lot for your money.
