Renting or Chartering a Boat on Capri: More Information

Do I need a boating license to rent a boat on Capri?
There are certain categories of boats, including a dingy or small lancia, which can be rented without a boating license. However, if you have never navigated a boat before, it's best to opt for a rental with skipper.
Are there less expensive alternatives than renting a private boat for a tour?
Yes, you can take an organized group boat tour. Tickets cost less than EUR 20 per person, the tour takes about 2 hours, and there is a stop to visit the Blue Grotto (you must purchase your ticket separately). The companies which offer these group tours are Laser Capri and Motoscafisti Capri.
Visiting the Blue Grotto
During your boat tour, you can arrange to stop at the Blue Grotto. Unfortunately, the grotto is not always open as the cave mouth is only a meter above sea level, so the sea must be calm to allow visitors to pass through safely. You will have to transfer to one of the small rowboats which transport passengers inside the cave from your rental boat, and lie back to pass through. Tickets to the Grotto cost EUR 13 and in high season there is often a long wait to enter.
If you have rented a boat without a skipper, you can anchor your boat to one of the buoys outside the cave entrance and wait for a rowboat to come and pick you up.
Visiting the Blue Grotto
Can I rent a boat to transfer between Capri and Positano or Amalfi?
Of course! There are a number of boat rental companies which offer tours of Capri or the Amalfi Coast with departures from the island and arrivals on the mainland, or viceversa. A large gozzo or speedboat is always used for these tour-transfers.

Where do I rent a boat?
Almost all the boat rental companies on Capri are located in Marina Grande near the port and marina. There is just one company located in Marina Piccola on the southern coast of the island.
