Best day in Italy!
Oct 2021 • Family
Our family had a fantastic day on the water with this incredible company. Our captain was kind, nice and knowledgeable about everything along the coast. It truly was the best way to end our Italy vacation. We Definitely recommend the folks at Bluestar boat tours. Everyone was beyond exceptional and the drinks were fun to have as well. Be sure to reserve your spot as you won’t be disappointed!
Cheers!

Sunset Spritz Cruis

We had a lovely afternoon onboard the Spritz with Captain Nicola! So grateful for Elizabeth fitting us in for a short tour between charters to celebrate our anniversary. Top notch service, guiding, and amenities.

BEST thing we did on our two week Italy vacation
Oct 2021
We were in Italy for two weeks and this was the NUMBER ONE thing all eleven us of said we did when we talk about our trip. AND, cost wise it was VERY resonable when divided by our party size. The boat was HUGE (see pic of resting for size). There was plenty of coke, beer, wine and water for the entire day. Our captain knew where to take for great swimming--we even went cave swimming. We went to the emerald gratto (but could be skipped if you do cave swimming). Lunch at restaurant reached by boat only wasn't fantastic, but that isn't Blue Star's fault. Just if you have other options, I'd try that. The boat had a clean restroom on board. We got to see all towns along the coast. We even came across a huge school of sardines and caught them. The captain was shocked we didn't want to take them for dinner--leaving next day and didn't have stuff to cook them ourselves. I just can't write enough amazing words about this experience. Definitely do it!!!

Fantastic day
Sep 2021
We did a full day private Amalfi Coast tour from Positano. Elisabeth was really helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. She also booked lunch for us at a lovely restaurant in Nerano. Our Captain Alessandro was fantastic and so knowledgeable. Drinks, snacks and towels were provided which meant we only needed to bring swim wear and sun cream. This was definitely the highlight of our week in Positano. My daughter and her six college friends said it was the best day ever! They have some amazing photos. Thank you so much Bluestar Team.

The best private day cruise on Amalfi coast bar none
What an amazing experience. I’ve been to a lot of beautiful places, a s this tour was-far and away-the best experience I’ve ever had. My wife celebrated her 40th birthday on a beautiful Aprea 32 that was clean and elegant (incredibly well-maintained boat, 5 stars). For American readers- think a perfectly maintained vintage Chris Craft cruiser with twin diesels. The seat cushions were spotless and comfortable. The teak was perfectly kept; the metal was spotless. Hermes, our captain, was very attentive and knowledgeable.

Your captain will let you call the day. If you want to stop in a town (we had lunch in Amalfi), no problem. Cliff diving? Ok. Swimming in a cave (grotto)? Yep. Cruise all day? You can do that. And don’t be afraid to ask him to speed up the boat; I think they default to slloooowww cruise but will run faster upon request.

All in all, I had ZERO complaints about the day. From the booking process to check in (they are one of 2 or 3 tents set up in Positano marina, you can’t miss them) to the service during the cruise, everything was PERFECT. Text Elisabeth now to set up your private cruise. Although it was only the two of us, the 32 was spacious enough to comfortably seat 4 couples or more.

Perfect Day on the Amalfi Coast
Jul 2021
We did the full day Amalfi Coast tour leaving from Positano and it was the highlight of our 10-day trip to Italy. My wife and I and our twin 15-year old girls all loved it.

We went out on the gozzo boat with Captain Marco, who was incredible. He had suggestions on where to go, but listened to what we wanted and adapted to make us happy. He had excellent suggestions on restaurants, swim spots, caves and a place to jump off of rocks that our kids loved. He was of the same mind as us to skip the Emerald Grotto and to go to better spots which he knew about. He couldn't reach the restaurant we wanted to go to (La Tonnerella) by phone, so he pulled into their harbor to make the reservation in person on our way out. He also serenaded us with opera inside the very cool Pandora's Cave. This might sound hokey but it was awesome.

Elisabeth manages the booking and she was really helpful - encouraging us to continue past Amalfi towards Maiori rather than our original thought of having lunch in Nerano after visiting Amalfi. We saw the Nerano side of the coast when we ferried to Capri, and the Maiori (south) side is much more interesting. She also provided two great lunch recommendations - I would advise doing what she suggests!

Overall, it was a perfect day (the photos we have on the front of the boat facing Positano and Amalfi are out of this world) - we highly recommend Captain Marco and Blue Star Positano.

Unforgettable boat tour
Unforgettable boat tour! First of all I have to say that the communication with Elisabeth prior the tour was very smooth, she has always been reachable and very gentle. We chose a full day Amalfi private boat tour with departure from Positano.
Our captain was Hermes and we asked him if it was possible to include the visit to Li Galli islands in our tour and our request was accommodated without any problem.
Hermes has been very professional and nice.
He always made sure we had water and little snacks at disposal, he gave us lots of explanations about the Amalfi coast and booked a very nice spot for us for lunch time.
The day flew by so fast!
Swimming in such a beautiful scenery is incredible.
I highly recommend Blue Star, the service is great and you won’t be disappointed.

Unforgettable Experience!
Jul 2021
WOW!! That's really all I can say for this review - it was truly and unforgettable experience!! There were 5 of us and we rented the Aprea boat for a full day, which I highly recommend! There was more than enough room and space for us to lounge. Our captain, Sandro, was very attentive and knowledgable - he took us to beautiful grotto's and let us jump off and swim wherever we wanted! We ate lunch on the boat which was also a plus!
This was definitely a highlight of our time in Italy and I can't wait to join Blue Star again!

Best boat experience for Positano
Sep 2020 • Couples
Super gut. werde wieder gehen. Best experience. Absolutely loved the boat tour as the photo spots are amazing, the captain was super accommodating and having a boat to yourself is the best way to experience the coast at your own pace.

Recommend as private photo tour for photos of the coast - Boat is large enough to feel safe with camera equipment and changing lens (I used 50mm and wide angle)

Will use again next year.
