This activity will end right where it started.
Leave for the island of Capri from Positano beach (Spiaggia Grande), or the main piers at Gavitella or La Praia beaches in Praiano. Aboard a traditional wooden gozzo, you’ll cruise over the Tyrrhenian Sea to the chic limestone island that is Capri.

Cruise around the island to visit the white and green caves as well as the famous Blue Grotto, which is lit up by light from an underwater cavity. Entrance is not included, but the sight of the cave’s blue reflection is worth the expense.

After a cool-down dip in the sea, you’ll dock on Capri to enjoy four hours of free time. Stroll around the Piazzetta, browse the chic shops, or visit Anacapri for sweeping sea views.

Meet back by your boat at the agreed time, then cruise over to the mainland, enjoying views of the trio of sea rocks known as the Faraglioni di Capri and the scenic headland of Punta Campanella. Your experience ends when you dock back at Positano or Praiano.

Falling a bit short
McKenna_B
, Aug 2022
This trip we were so excited for and somewhat fell short - our boat ride to capri was somewhat lackluster with our captain who wasn’t super charismatic, only got 3 hours on Capri instead of 4 as expected, you don’t actually get a chance to go into the blue grotto via the canoes or another small boat, we just got to look at it from the outside as passing by (though it was stated that the blue grotto fee wasn’t included on this trip, we thought maybe you’d be able to pay on board to enter, or make this a stop and enter, etc). We would’ve much rather had a quick stop in the blue grotto and pay instead of a super long winding trip to get to Capri. Once on the island, you have to take a crowded hot bus or $20 one-way cab ride to actually get into the city of Capri or Anticapri for exploration beyond the beach. On the boat, not enough waters were packed for everyone on board, and it was very very hot. The one thing we really enjoyed was the swim which was amazing in the warm clear water… however, we also thought we’d be snorkeling but just swam (potentially our misunderstanding). Then coming home, as we’re all very tired and ready to get home, we take a very long winding trip home along the coast for 1.5 hours, and THEN you have to wait in line in the positano waters to get a spot to dock - it took 45 mins due to boat traffic, which was pretty tough to stand after being on the boat and hot all day just waiting to get back on land - you could tell our whole group was angsty to get off the boat. All in all, we’re happy we got to see Capri and swim but just expected a bit more from this trip.

Amazing boat captain & experience!
Ariel_L

This was one of the best Viator experiences I’ve been on as the captain was wonderful and really took his time to show us around! It took an hour to get to Capri and we had 3 hours to explore which was enough time to have lunch, do some shopping and take a dip at the beach. We then went to a nice secluded area of the coast to swim in the ocean and the captain even gave us snorkels to look at the fish. All in all, well worth the money since the entire trip was 8-9 hours. Had such a great time and there was 12 of us on the boat (all couples)!

Amazing Capri tour

We knew going to Capri was going to be a good experience, but this tour was extremely good. This was a small friendly group. Giuseppe was the best captain recommending the best choices and taking us to the main points of interest. I highly recommend this tour, you won’t be disappointed.

Capri boat

Great views. The grotto. May need to insist on stopping there as we were encouraged not to and that is why we picked the trip. Boat didn’t have a bathroom which on a 10 hour trip was a problem. Docked in Capri on the other side of the island and it was a 20 euro cab ride to Capri town

A magical day on the water!

This was one of the most memorable experience of my Italy trip! It was the perfect day on the water and so relaxing but you also were able to explore and learn. Francisco was so helpful and took as many pictures as we wanted! We got to explore Capri for 4 hours (chose to go to town for a little then hit a local beach) then the rest of the time you are on the boat and see the amazing views. We also got to take a dip in the water which was amazing! I highly recommend booking!!

Experience ok but not good as expected
Julien_M

Nice trip with some things that could be better. We booked this boat because we wanted to be at maximum 8 people (also due to the Covid) but we were 13! For some visit, nothing was booked and they asked us to wait at least 1 hour! Experience ok in General but not as good as we thought

Overcharged

Do not purchase your boat trip through viator. They overcharge for the same tour that you could get significantly cheaper in Positano. Save yourself the cash and wait until you get to the port to get different quotes.

This was the perfect way to see Capri and more of the amalfi coast! Our guide was very good at making sure we were comfortable and having the best experience possible! We also stopped and had time for multiple photo opportunities and we were able to swim in the ocean! 10/10 would recommend!!

Capri day tour and excursion

Beautiful experience! Tour guide was extremely friendly. We got four hours of free time in Capri but decided to just stay by the beach rather than explore and it was still an amazing experience

I cannot say enough good things about this excursion. The boat was easy to find at the marina and Francesco, our skipper, was so much fun and made the experience so special. We had 10 people on our boat and a nice bunny pad for sunbathing on our way to Capri. Francesco pointed out sights along the way and stopped in many of the grottos (not the Blue Grotto) on the way to Capri and even took photos of everyone after we passed through the Faraglioni. We spent 4 hours in Capri-- we chose to grab lunch and then hang at the free beach at Marina Piccola, where we would meet Francesco later. After we got back on the boat, we went to some more grottos and found a spot to swim off the boat. It was magical. Then Francesco pooped a bottle of prosecco and sailed back to Postiano and Praiano. Absolutely wonderful day-- wish I could go back right now!

Amazing day on the water!
Curious40073483011

We had the best time on our boat cruise to Capri. We boarded in Praiano and felt like absolute rock-stars when we were greeted at the marina and escorted directly to our boat. Francesco was amazing, he was very pleasant and checked in multiple times to make sure we were doing ok. We stopped in Positano to pick up more people, then headed off to Capri where Francesco took us around the island to show us the various grottoes and noteworthy items. Since it was the middle of April, it was too cold for anyone to jump in and swim when we stopped, so we all enjoyed a bottle of prosecco and the sunshine. Highly recommend!

Capri day trip from Amalfi Coast
Steven_L
, Sep 2018
The boat ride from Positano to Capri was a wonderful way to see the beauty of the Amalfi Coast. We saw various formations and grottos along the way that were absolutely beautiful. Our guide provided background at each stop along the way explaining the various formations and sites we saw. We had a four hour stay in Capri providing more than enough time to eat, shop and experience the views from the top of the island.

Amazing day!

Wonderful day on the boat. Our tour guide, Marco was spectacular! Full of knowledge and very pleasant. We took our time getting to all the grottos as to enjoy the beautiful scenery. He pulled the boat into each grotto and we were able to touch the rocks and get photos. He sang for us and played the accordion as well. Towards the end of our trip he stopped and anchored for us to take a nice leisurely swim. Our trip was finished with a champagne toast. Well worthwhile trip with our family.

Not Worth the Money
Kayla_K
, Jul 2018
I was disappointed by this purchase and wish I could have gotten a refund, but Viator's customer service isn't great. it was nice traveling in a semi-private boat, but I just didn't think it was worth the money. Our guides didn't provide any history or information during our trip. They weren't helpful in telling us what to do or how to get around once we got to Capri so we could have just taken the ferry, traveled there ourselves with more time to walk around and gotten back earlier without having to stop for 2 people to go swimming. Just not sure what we exactly paid for.

Capri Day from Positano
DebraA_C
, Jul 2018
The weather was disappointing on this day, but the crew and the small group of people on board were not. We had a lot of fun in spite of the weather and learned a bit, made a few stops along the way and were told some interesting tidbits. The water was rough so the blue grotto was closed and that was a disappointment, no ones fault. I will have to go back to Capri and would not hesitate to take this cruise again. Fun!
