If you select the early morning option including the Blue Grotto, you will arrive there right as it opens, avoiding the long queues.

Next, circumnavigate Capri to admire the dramatic coastal scenery of the island. See the White Grotto, the Green Grotto, the Faraglioni rocks, a natural arch, and the lighthouse of Punta Carena.

The route will take you along Amalfi Coast’s finest beaches as well as close to natural rock arches and into sea caves, giving you the opportunity to admire the old watchtowers that dot the entire length of this coast. You will pause at beaches reachable only by sea and have time to go snorkeling or swimming in crystal-clear waters and into grottoes. Not too far from the starting point, right after leaving the center of Amalfi, you will get close to Saint Andrew's Grotto, a huge natural sea cave full of stalactites named after the patron saint of Amalfi (Andrea). Then, once passed Duoglio and Santa Croce beaches, you will stop by the "Arc of Lovers", a natural rock arch created millions of years ago by the erosion of the sea whose shape recalls two elephants in the act of kissing. Up to not too long ago young couples used to get married on the top of it. A little later you will cruise in front of the ancient fishing village of Conca dei Marini, passing near the villa of Sophia Loren and seeing the historic hotel “Il Saraceno” located on La Vite Beach. From here you will also have a stunning view of the Santa Rosa Monastery, a former convent now converted into a luxury hotel, once home of the Dominican nuns. It's right in the kitchens of this monastery that the delicious "Sfogliatella Santa Rosa" was born, a shell-shaped pastry filled with ricotta cheese-based cream and little dried fruit pieces, typical of the local culinary tradition (don't forget to taste it before leaving!). Once past the seaside of Conca dei Marini you will enter its western basin, where you will have a beautiful view of Furore and Praiano villages and the islands of Li Galli and Capri, together with the well-known Faraglioni Rocks. Further inside this basin we will find the little Runghetiello Grotto and its tiny beach, where you will anchor for a break to go swimming or snorkeling. You will reach then the famous Furore Fjord, the only natural fjord in Italy and location of the international diving competition "MarMeeting": every year in July, professional divers from around the world compete by jumping from the top of the bridge which is 28 meters high. Navigating a little farther onward to the village of Praiano you will be able to have a close look at a bigger sea cave, the Africana Grotto, where the water has a distinctive blue color thanks to the unique refraction of light. Finally you will go round Capo Sottile and continue cruising to Positano, where you will have another break for snorkeling at a beach reachable only by the sea and so not crowded at all: La Porta. The return trip to Amalfi will give you a different but equally remarkable view of both sea and land.

I cannot stress enough—this was one of the highlights of my trip to Italy! Every part of the day trip to Capri was beautifully organized, and we were taken care of every step of the way. They gave us time to do our own thing of course on the island, but the time spent on the boat was really magical in my view.

All the staff at Hp tours were amazingly kind and helpful! The tour itself was the highlight of our trip. We were lucky enough to be on a boat with only 5 of us, and it was so relaxing and fun. Our boat guide was knowledgeable and a great captain, getting us up close to all the attractions. 10/10!!

Miguel the guide of this excursion was the best we had in the entire trip. At all times we knew where we were and he told us everything there is to know about these places. I hope you are lucky and go on this excursion with him

We had an amazing experience. Totally worth it the price. Our guide Sandra was great. We really appreciate all the organisation and the tour overall.

Excellent tour, very nice tour guides with lots of interesting information about the area
