Full description

Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the Italian coast on this full-day trip by boat from Sorrento. Cruise around Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello, with plenty of time to explore the islands and experience their unique way and pace of life.

See the iconic Amalfi and Sorrento coastlines from the comfort of a boat on a full-day trip. Get picked up from Sorrento before setting sail from Piano di Sorrento along the Amalfi Coast. Sit back and admire the enchanting beauty of the Sorrento Coast with the iconic Mount Vesuvius in the background as you glide over the Mediterranean Sea. 

See terraces overhanging the sea, the Baths of Queen Giovanna, the Bay of Jeranto, and the protected marine area of Punta Campanella on your journey. Hug the coastline to then admire the iconic Amalfi Coast, passing by Li Galli Island, the charming towns of Nerano and Praiano, and the Fjord of Furore before docking in Amalfi. 

Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site at your own pace, soaking in its picturesque views, romantic landscapes, and the Amalfi Cathedral. Choose to hop onto a minivan to visit the village of Ravello, where you can see the splendid Villa Rufolo and its verdant gardens, or choose to spend your time getting to know Amalfi.

Next, set sail again to make your way to Positano, also known as the pearl of the Amalfi Coast. Discover the town's famous narrow streets, traditional shops, and colorful pottery in your own time before jumping back on the boat for a relaxed sail back to Piano di Sorrento, from where you will be dropped off back at the starting point.

I asked that the transfer lift us at our hotel and was told no that they established meeting point was only a 10 min walk from our hotel. We went to the meeting point and no other customers there just our family. THe driver picked us up and drove right past our hotel!! The boat trip started for us in Piano de Sorrento, its a small sleepy port. It isnt the most pleasant place as there are lots of cats and cat poo around! We were there for an hour before the ferry departed so it was a bit too long for us, there are two shops selling coffee but nowhere nice or cat free to sit. It could be lovely if it was cleaned up a bit! The guide Jessica was lovely she was so helpful and informative, the ferry was very clean and we felt safe throughout. Due to changes to the clocks on 30th Oct we were informed that our stop over in Amalfi and Positano would be shorter than expected as the ferry couldn't sail in dark, this was a bit disappointing!

Great guide (Jessica), great boat ride. As we traveled to Amalfi, she shared information about what we were seeing (in three languages!). Very scenic - we sat outside in the front of the boat, which made the boat trip wonderful. We had great weather. We took the extra tour to Ravello which gave us both a van ride on the Amalfi road which was very interesting and scenic, plus an hour in Ravello. The guide gave us basic information and then we had free time. Small town, plenty of shops and food, and fantastic views. Highly recommend the trip to Ravello. This meant that we had only one hour in Amalfi (rather than 3), but that was plenty of time in Amalfi. Again, the guide gave us basic information, which was fine, and we got to explore in our own. In Amalfi, we enjoyed the lemon sherbet served in a lemon. Then an hour in Positano. Many people swam. Big beach. We enjoyed exploring. Great boat ride back. Great day!!

Ravello and Almafi were beautiful. The boat was fast. A bit difficult to hear the information over the noise of the boat. Choppy sea meant we couldn't Dock at possitano which was disappointing. The guide was informative but left without saying goodbye which was strange. We also were told we had to meet in the square but others were picked up at hotels, next to ours.
