This absolutely was the highlight of our week in Sorrento. Firstly, the boat used (a Fratelli jet boat I believe) was immaculate, seemingly brand new and it’s cool design gave no clue as to just how fast it was. Slow cruise outbound with stops to explore places of interest, swim, drink Prosecco and set up many photo opportunities. The guys even reversed the boat into a waterfall for braver passengers to get under! A few hours to explore Capri, it’s treasures and eateries, then a flat-out wind-(and spray)-in-the-hair blast back to Sorrento in the dark, which was simply brilliant. Our 2-man crew were great fun, friendly and made the experience simply the best.

This tour was the highlight of our entire trip! Capri was even more beautiful in person and definitely has that “wow” factor. The trip was well organized and Francesca and Nelo were wonderful! The only thing I could have done without is the Blue Grotto. It’s optional so you don’t have to do it. It was very hectic and underwhelming, and if you’re claustrophobic you will not like it. Other than that, I recommend Capri to anyone coming to this area of Italy. You’ll be so glad you went!

An amazing tour with the best crew. Luca and Roberta were such kind and professional crew. From the moment we stepped foot on the boat, they welcomed us with a huge smile and catered to all our needs and more. The trip program is so much fun and plenty of drinks and snacks on board. Will definitely book again and highly recommend

This was a great experience. A nice boat, with only a half dozen other people. They give you lots of great food. Chips, fresh fruit, a delicious sandwich for lunch, dessert. You get wine and beer and champagne! We really enjoyed our time!

Awesome boat tour around both islands with a little bit of time on each to explore, see some key sights and get a bite to eat
