Once arrived at the port you will meet the captain, an english speaking skipper who will welcome you on the boat and… are you ready to sail?
You will skirt the coastline of Positano, contemplating the beautiful scenery and also enjoying some interesting landmarks, such as the Crapolla Fjord and the Grotta d’Opertuso. You can stop here if you wish for some photos or to swim. Next stop is the Marine Park of Punta Campanella, a captivating marine region in which you can meet many types of fishes, the ideal spot to snorkeling. You can also visit the attractive Minerva’s Grotto.
We can stop two other times before landing to Sorrento, at the Punta Lagno waterfall, a natural source of cold water coming from the mountain, and then at a very appealing sites called Bagni Regina Giovanna, or “Villa Polio Felice”, according to the name of a famous Roman villa you can see from the boat. It is an archeological site and a slightly wild place, where nature and history surprise you in an exciting mix. A perfect place to have a bath, isn’t it?
Once arrived in Sorrento you can get some free time to visit the marvelous town, with its historic center and cozy atmosphere. If you want we can suggest the best traditional restaurant to have lunch.
Time to head to Capri! We will make an astonishing boat tour before landing at Marina Grande, starting with an outstanding treasure, the White Grotto, a pleasant rock formation accessible by boat, with a spot that resembles a statue of the Virgin Mary. Skirting the coastline you will admire the celebrated Villa Malaparte, an evocating symbol of the Italian contemporary architecture, the house of the Tuscan writer Curzio Malaparte, and also the nearby breathtaking Natural Arch.
We will see the Faraglioni and then the impressive Green Grotto, worldwide known for the emerald green light that filters through the water and reflects onto the walls, creating a dreamy atmosphere. Did you know it was used as a base by the pirates to hide and attack against the ships?
And now, the Grand Finale.
Take some pics while admiring the Lighthouse of Punta Carena and then prepare to visit the Blue Grotto. This is a once in a lifetime experience, you will feel just like you are suspended in the heavens. If you’re asking why is so… blue… it’s just because the sunlight enters the cavern through an underwater opening which is positioned exactly under the cave's mouth. As the light passes through the water, the red reflections are filtered, exalting the blue atmosphere!
If you want to visit the Blue Grotto inside, as we recommend, you will have to use the small boats provided by a local company authorized to access to the grotto. The entrance fee of eur 14,00 can be paid directly on the spot.
After the Blue Grotto we will land to Marina Grande, with some free time to enjoy for shopping, sipping an aperitif, admire the landscape and eating a traditional pizza as dinner!
We couldn't of planned a better trip. We spent 3 days straight with Fred on the Mediterranean and he made our entire trip. Whether you want to have a leisurely cruise or snorkel in the sea, you will not be disappointed. Thank you so much and we'll be back in the near future!!
We visited Sorrento in May and decided to rent a private boating experience through Restart Boat tours. Their service was incredible and very professional. Our Captain, Francesco was amazing and took us to all over the island of Capri and we were able to see all of the best sites. We had free time to eat lunch and explore the city of Anacapri. Highly recommend this outstanding company. Thank you for making our honeymoon special - this was the highlight of the trip.
