Can you tell me how expensive it was to take the ride around the island from Marina Grande and how long it too? Thanks so much!
We had a private boat, with a padded deck and plenty of seating. We had a family of five and paid cash. The price was about 150 Euro. I'm sure you can get cheaper, with a smaller boat or sharing with others. We paid cash and our hotel, The Capri Wine Hotel arranged it. The trip around the entire island lasted a little over 2 hours. Beer, soda, towels and water were provided. Our skipper, Stephano was great, bringing us to the Blue Grotto and navigating us in among the other boats. After taking the small skiffs into the Grotto we continued our trip. We stopped at several other Grottos, including Green and White. We stopped at a cove to take a swim and the highlight was circling Faraglioni and driving right through the arch. Stephano was a good guide pointing out famous points and homes. It may sound like a lot of money, but this was one of the best bargains and memorable trips we had in Italy.
We paid 18 euros per person and the round island trip lasted 1 hour. Would highly recommend the trip for breathtaking views of Capri.
This wasn’t a private hire tour.
For a 12 person boat tour it is 90-100 euro per person, which takes you from Sorrento hotel to marina and a boat trip around to the sights of the island plus 4 HRs on land. Fantastico!
18€ It's beautiful.
Gary B answered it perfectly. Pay the extra €12 for the boat trip. It is very well worth it
The picture in question is Capri. You can book a tour of Capri island round trip for about €20-€30 I think. Me and my girlfriend went on that cruise and it was amazing. The whole tour round the island took about 1hr and was well worth the money. I recommend that you take the Amalfitano coast tour also. If you book the Amalfitano and positano bus tour through your rep then you can pay an addition €12 to take that boat tour but have to be a minimum of 12 people. Well worth it
Hi We booked through Jolly Tours who have 2 offices in Sorrento, 1 is at the end of the street right in front of the Town hospital. Their boat actually left from Massa Lubrense, a smaller port about 20 minutes from Sorrento and nearer to Capri. They collected us from our hotel and transferred us to the boat by air conditioned coach. It cost Euro 50 pp and we did a circuit of the island visiting the grottos etc first, before docking in Capri and had 5 hours on the island. Have a great trip.
Depends if you want to go on a private tour or a collective one. The private on a small boat it was about 200€ and it took about 3 hours.
We had a group of 12 so we rented a large boat with a crew of 2 including lunch although we ended up taking the boat to Positano for lunch. Our hotel concierge had many boat rental options. And I'd advise you to do it through the hotel so that at least they know where you're going. We thought the boat rental companies treated us well so they preserve their relationship with our hotel. Sorry, not helpful.
You can rent a "banana boat", a small boat if you or someone in your party can be the captain and knows how to operate it. It's pretty simple. My husband has sailing experience and all they asked for was his driver's license. You pay upon return based on the number of hours that you keep it out for. We paid €175 for 3 hours (full price, not per person). There were 4 of us on the boat.
The price varies by the boat you choose--anywhere from 5-50 and the length varies also. You need to ask each there.
All price ranges from 20 euro pp in tour boat that goes around island to hundreds renting your own small motor boat for the day
Hi, we took the restaurant boat from Marina Piccolo and it was 10€. From Marina Grande perhaps €15?
The trip we took was about 75 minutes and was €18. The sea was a bit rough so probably took a bit less time than expected but worth every penny. We bought our tickets from a little shop opposite the exit to the ferry quayside, Cindy y Gennarino - Cindy is an American lady who went to Capri for a vacation a long time ago and stayed!
