Owner description: Positano Boats is an hire boats and luxury charter company of the young entrepreneurs from Positano, born from the passion for the sea and a big admiration for the Amalfi Coast. The desire to do much to do and especially the desire to let everyone know the beauty of the Divine Coast, the nostalgia of the amalfitan Dolce vita and the Italian style make this young company truly unique. Kindness, courtesy, customer care and knowledge of the sea are the must.

My wife and I joined the Amalfi Coast day tour With Positano Boats and had a great time. The boat, Mr Luigi, could hold 12 but there were only 7 on our tour. It might have be a little crowded if all 12 people were aboard. I think this is probably the only way to really appreciate the Amalfi Coast. You get a great view of all the villages and villas, including Sofia Lorenz’s and Zafferelli’s. The boat is very comfortable and travels along at a speed that allows you to take in the breathtaking scenery. Some of these people REALLY wanted to live on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean! You go very close to some special features such as Fiordo Furore and can go into the Emerald Grotto for an additional €5 - it’s pretty small and the row boat “captain” is a bit cheesy and reminded us 4 times “ not to forget the captain” when it came time for a tip. Unfortunately for him I think everybody on our little boat did “forget”. This part of the day is not the responsibility of Positano Boats so it’s completely up to you if you take part or not - it only takes 15 minutes. When we arrived at Amilfi we looked around for a couple of hours and then decided to catch the boat back to a very secluded restaurant that can only be reached by boat to have lunch. However you can stay in Amalfi for the whole afternoon or even visit Ravello as a couple did I on our cruise. Your captain will offer you these three options. We were glad we went to the restaurant as the prices were good and it was impossible to get there any other way. It was a good experience. The trip back to Positano was just as pleasant and we arrived back about 5.00 pm. We think the day was very good value for money and offered an experience that would be hard to have any other way. Our captain, Andreas, was very informative and spoke very good English.

This was truly an incredible way to experience be Amalfi coast. Renting a boat is a personal and relatively affordable alternative to larger group tours which are always a full day commitment. Francesco took us down the Amalfi coast for 4 hours and showed us several hidden grottos and caves along the way. He is extremely knowledgeable about all the sights and was a very pleasant companion for the whole trip. Highly recommend Positano Boats, Francesco, and the Corallina boat! This was one of the highlights of our trip to Positano!

We booked the day trip to Capri, and would highly recommend it. It's a small group tour - there were a total of 10 people on our boat (the Mr. Luigi). It's not an in-depth informational tour, rather you drive around and see the beautiful scenery and enjoy the sunshine. Our boat driver did offer some information, pointing out the name of various places we went (the red grotto, etc). He was an excellent driver (and easy on the eyes). We had 4 hours on Capri, which was enough time to wander around, eat, and shop. We stopped for a swim in an amazing grotto, and had some prosecco after.

We loved our boat tour, it was a small group and cozy as we checked out all the grotto;s and the beaurtiful homes on the mountains along the sea. our tour guide gave us an opportunity to jump off the boat and swim in the sea which I totally loved. He even offered us champagne at the end. My only complaint would be that he didn't speak English. I would have loved to knew some of the history behind all the sites in the towns along the coast....all in all it was a great trip and highly recommended.

Our second day was a trip to Capri after seeing Amalfi by land with Dreaming of Amalfi, Davide. Thought we couldn't have another spectacular day after Davide spoiled us with a and tour but I was wrong. Positano Boat tour was nothing less than spectacular! The captain was prompt picking us up from a small boat pier in Praiano. All together there was 10 taking the trip. Great group size.

The trip included going into many of the grottos. The captains skills were impeccable going in and out of the small places.

We covered a lot of area before getting to Capri. We spent a few hours on the island before being picked up. The ride home we stopped for a swim and a champaign toast.
