We rented a boat for a half day (4 hours) in the afternoon and cruised around the island of Capri. Our skippers, Mario and Francesco were gracious and fun. We enjoyed glasses of Prosecco with the sun shining and wind in our hair. Once we reached Capri, we did the tour of the Blue Grotto. Since it was the off season, the line to do this was non-existent but be aware that usually it is a long wait. The grotto was amazing. After, we cruised around and got to anchor in a little cove, perfect for jumping in the blue waters and enjoying a refreshing swim! Everything about this was worth the money! It was a dream. We couldn’t imagine taking one of the ferry tours being crammed in like sardines and not being able to enjoy the same service and the same views of this beautiful place. Please do yourselves a favor and book a private boat because it will be an experience you’ll treasure.

We were in Positano for our honeymoon and decided we would rent a boat for the day and explore the coast by ourselves Well the next day the sea was angry and had pretty decent size waves and they would not rent a small boat to us ( rightfully so due to the conditions ). But they did offer a solution, for the same price we could rent a boat and a captain to see the coast. Well we took them up on the offer and it turned out to be money well spent !!!
Francesco was our captain and was awesome !! We explored some secluded beaches the coast. It was amazing !!! Francesco docked at amalfi and explored the city.

Side note: there were two other companies on the beach that still would have rented us personal (20 foot boats) and sent us out in the sea with no regard for our safety. This company said “ no way do you see the waves , it’s not safe for you guys ). I highly recommend this company and Francesco for a amazing day !!!

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.
