Full description

Discover the beauty of the island of Capri and the seaside Amalfi coast town of Positano on this boat trip from Sorrento. Take in views of Vesuvius as you cruise and have some free time to explore Positano at your own pace. 

Embark in the morning from the port of Sorrento on a private boat with a local captain who will show you the not-to-be-missed sights of Capri and Positano.

Cruise along the Sorrento coastline and across the Bay of Naples with views of the imposing Mt. Vesuvius, the island of Ischia, and Capri. Arrive in Capri and head to the Blue, Green and White Grottos. Capture pictures of the famous Faraglioni rock formations.

Stop to swim in the turquoise bays, discover natural arcs in the limestone coast, and relax. Sail out of the Bay of Naples and into the Gulf of Salerno, snaking along the Amalfi Coast.

Visit Nerano, a small fishing village that has become renown for its delicious cuisine. Have the chance to taste a seaside lunch in this village that cannot be easily reached by car.

Continue on to Li Galli private islands and perhaps stop for a swim. Legend has it that Ulysses heard the song of the sirens here as he sailed through and on to Capri. 

Finally, dock in Positano where you can capture pictures of its colorful villas climbing up the rocks. Enjoy some free time to walk through the cobblestone alleyways of before making your way back to the boat.

We had an incredible experience on our private boat tour with Exclusive Cruises. We had only one day and didn’t want to choose between seeing only Capri or Positano, so we picked this tour to see both. Our skipper Elio was the best part of the cruise. He took us everywhere and tailored the ride to our group. We had two small children and he kept them comfortable and happy and was so sweet to them. For lunch he made a reservation at a local restaurant in Nerano so it was ready when we arrived. When we got to Positano we were overwhelmed by how crowded it was, so we called Elio and he immediately picked us up and took us to a private beach instead. We ended the day with sunset Proseco and swim. Must say this ranks in the top 5 most memorable experiences ever.

Excellent tour. Patrick, our guide, and Franco, our captain, were both terrific. We had a wonderful experience sailing around the island of Capri, making stops at the Blue Grotto and other fabulous sights. We even stopped for lunch at a very nice waterfront restaurant. The tour capped off with an added treat: limencello made by Franco's mother! Absolutely delicious.
