Overview

The Blue Grotto is the most famous sight on Capri, but the long wait at the cave entrance means that many boat tours skip a stop here. With this tour, set sail first thing in the morning to beat the crowds and cut wait times to a minimum. After taking in the grotto, enjoy a boat tour around the island with stops to swim and free time to explore on land.
  • Early arrival at the Blue Grotto to guarantee a visit inside the cave
  • Take in other highlights off the coast of Capri, including the Faraglioni
  • Relax on board with a padded sundeck, beverages, and snacks
  • Visit the Piazzetta and other sights on land at your own pace

Best Day Ever!

Ever since we got home, my husband and I say that our Capri tour was the best day of our trip. We were truly amazed at how wonderful the day was and how much we saw. You start at the Blue Grotto, and we did not have to wait long. Our guide Flavio made sure we all got a rowboat. The Blue Grotto is truly an experience. After, we explored the island of Capri on the water, and Flavio was not only a skilled skipper, but one of the most knowledgable tour guides we've ever met. He also made the whole day such a fun experience. He was cheering people on as we jumped in the water, he would play music all day, and made sure our cups were full of prosecco. He gave a few recommendations for our 3 hour stopover on the island, which were amazing. He also gave recommendations for Sorrento, and they were equally amazing. We cannot say enough how great this day was.

Amazing Capri trip!

My husband and I had an amazing time. Would absolutely recommend this trip. We had a mix of young couples and a family with school aged children and everyone had a great time. Unfortunately we could not see the blue grotto due to high tide but our captain (I believe his name was Dario) took us on a nice trip around Capri and we had some extra time on the island. We swam twice and the boat had noodles we could use, would maybe suggest bringing your own snorkel gear or goggles if you have them, the boat had some for use but not enough for everyone which was fine with me. Would love to do another tour with our captain in the future because he was great! Thank you!

Luca was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the area, had great stories and was so friendly and helpful. We did not get to see the Blue Grotto because the tide was too high. It was no one’s fault but therefore not a five star experience. The rest of the tour was good but personally not a highlight of our trip. We swam, toured around Capri and stopped for 3 hours on the island. The tour company was good and we felt safe with the guide and captain.

10 boat mates and captain, Francesco, made for a perfectly gorgeous tour around and on Capri. Highlight were jumping into the blue, blue sea, crusing along the coast, making new friends exploring the island, Take the chairlift from Anicapri! Our tour guide, Francesco, was outstanding. Knowledgeable about the entire region gave us tons of recommendations. A perfect day.

Perfect day and length of time! Our guides were incredible, the views were unbelievable and the boat was amazing. I would recommend this tour for anyone looking for visiting Capri and seeing the surrounding area. Drinks and sandwich were included as well as floating noodles and snorkeling equipment. We hope to come back next year!

If you’re looking for a Capri trip amongst the many then stop and look no further! We had an amazing time travelling around the island, stopping for some snorkelling and even had time on the island to take the chair lift to the top. Fantastic and the crew were brilliant.

The boat was beautiful! The small number of us onboard, the stops along the way, the swimming , the delicious caprese sandwiches, the drinks, the music, but especially our captain and first mate which made this day unforgettable!

AMAZING

We really had the best time. We met great people from all around the world and loved the small group size. The blue grotto was very cool but surprisingly was not the highlight. We might not have read the small print but there is a 14 euro charge per person to go into the grotto that you pay when you get to the actual grotto. Just boating around Capri and jumping in the beautiful water was so fun. Mikele (spelling?) our captain was AMAZING. Could honestly do without going onto Capri.

Best tour of my whole trip!

I debated between a few different tours and decided on this one because the Blue Grotto sounded interesting. Now having completed the tour, I know I made the right decision! Blue Grotto alone is worth choosing this tour. I was in Sorrento for 3 days and did three different tours (Capri, Amalfi, and Pompeii) and this was by far my favorite experience. The tour guide went above and beyond to make this a fun and personal experience. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone!

As we left early,we were the 2nd boat to reach the blue grotto,hence was seamless. Boatman Sergio was professional, courteous and friendly. 3 and half hours free time in Capri, went up to Capri Square by the funicular,followed by a dip in the sea.Great experience, definitely worth the trip

Fantastic excursion to the Blue Grotto and Capri

Captain Alfonso and First Mate Enrico were fabulous guides. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and safe. Enrico even came in the water to pull me back to the boat when we were swimming because of the strong current. We liked the boat excursion even more than our time on Capri. Be sure to take this awesome trip with Viator. It’s great value for the money. Going to the Blue Grotto at the beginning of the trip was brilliant.

Wonderful day! The crew Vincenza and Frederica were so nice and welcoming. We got to the blue grotto early and got in quickly. So gorgeous. Vincenzo was an excellent and skilled captain driving the boat into interesting areas. We all loved swimming in the clear water. We had some time to explore Capri. Just a perfect day! Thank you my family will never forget this experience.

A great day out on the Blue Grotto Boat tour

We had a fabulous day on the Blue Grotto Boat tour from Sorrento. Flavio was our skipper for the day and he looked after us from start to finish. He was great. It was the best day out we've had on holiday as a family and one that will gave us lots of memories to treasure including: A fast boat ride across the bay of Naples - there and back The blue grotto and the little boats that take you in Swimming in the sea The visit to Capri (which BTW is very busy and expensive) The boat tour around the island Seeing the luxury super yachts docked near Anticapri All in all it was a great day. Its not cheap but it's worth every penny and we would definitely recommend it.

Our family had an amazing experience on the Capri Blue Grotto Boat Tour. We left Sorrento on time and went first as promised to the Blue Grotto. The Blue Grotto is a specular experience and by arriving early we had minimal crowds. Enjoyed the day on the island and cruising around. It was such a special day! Our captain, Sebastiano, gave personalized attention to his passengers. He was delightful to talk with. He walked with us to secure a taxi on Capri and suggested what we should expect to pay. As we cruised around the island, Sebastiano found ways to engage the teenagers making it a memorable experience for all. We highly recommend this tour!

Flavio For The Win!

We had a wonderful time! We made our way to the Marina in the early morning and got checked in pretty quickly. Our captain & tour guide Flavio efficiently got our small group of 12 organized and boarded onto a beautiful boat. Flavio gave interesting details about the sights and made sure all of us were having an enjoyable time. The drinks aboard were perfect and the caprese sandwich given ‘to go’ for our time in Capri was delicious too. Would recommend!
