There was no option for snorkeling. In fact, I don’t believe he had any snorkeling gear on board. The snorkeling was our primary motivation for choosing this activity. There was also no option to stop at the Emerald Grotto, which was one of the key places we wanted to see. We were offered a stop on a couple of beaches. One was overcrowded. The other was tiny and looked dirty. So, we declined. The tour ended around 3pm. So, there was no possibility of a sunset on the water. All of that said, Andrea was great. He was very personable and spoke enough English to communicate well. We very much enjoyed the tour of the coast and his efforts to make it a good experience. He simply didn’t seem to know what all the description of the tour included. That was quite disappointing. So, contrary to the description of the activity, it was a boat ride along the coast and back. Nothing more. While we did enjoy it, I’m quite unhappy about the missing aspects of the trip. I feel misled.

This was the highlight of our entire trip in Italy!! Words can’t describe how amazing this private boat tour experience was along the Amalfi coast. Our boat captain Andrea let us plan the day as we pleased and gave us excellent recommendations. We started out in Positano admiring the views then got to have a private beach experience snorkelling with tons of fish. Then into Nerano where we had the best seafood at a restaurant on the water. We love to swim and snorkel and he took us to many amazing hidden gems. Truly a once in a life time experience! Huge shoutout to Andrea- thank you so much for the most amazing day we could’ve wished for, you were the best!

The boat was nice and we felt safe and comfortable, however I think my expectations were a little different with what we would be able to do. We met up an hour after the scheduled pick up time, they contacted me via whatsapp for a slight delay but we actually met later than communicated. You first get dropped off at Amalfi to explore, the driver offered 2 hours but we asked for 1-1 1/2 hours since we wanted to spend more time in or on the water. We then went to get in the water in Santa Lucia, water was a bit choppy so it wasn't as great to swim in, I wish i had something to float on to enjoy something a bit more relaxing. The boat did offer snorkling goggles though so that was nice. We then had lunch on the beach as well, it was pretty good. The driver then drove us back to Positano sharing a few facts, I think i just assumed we would be offered to visit a Grotto or a different beach in addition. It was nice to have the boat to ourselves and get nice views of the coast.
