Discover all the secrets of the Mediterranean between Capri and the Amalfi Coast from up close aboard Amalfi & Positano Boat Tours, tours and sails organzied by Gianni's boats for vacationers on Capri who want to experience this gorgeous island and the nearby coastline from the sea.
Full Day Sail: Capri to the Amalfi Coast
Book a Full Day excursion with Amalfi & Positano Boat Tours and you'll set sail from Capri's Marina Grande port early in the morning aboard one of the island's traditional "gozzo" fishing boats, with Gianni - an expert sailor and local expert - at the helm.
Don't be fooled by the "traditional fishing boat" bit: on board there are the kind of amenities you'd normally find on only the most luxurious yachts - from a spacious sun deck with awning and cabin with changing room, to an ice-box filled with bottles of Veuve Cliquot champagne and mamma Rita's homemade limoncello...
Lie back and relax, listening to the sound of the waves or, if you prefer, to the sound of your personal playlist (you can connect your iPod to the onboard stereo... )
Swimming with dolphins
The Punta Campanella Marine Reserve, just a few nautical miles from Capri, marks the beginning of the Amalfi Coast and is the first stop on our sail. Here we'll be on the lookout for sea turtles and dolphins as we continue on towards the Marina del Cantone in Nerano and Positano, sailing past the dramatic coastline with picturesque spots like the Bays of Ieranto and Crapolla. We'll be sure to skirt the waters of the coast's most charming and colorful fishing villages, including Conca dei Marini and Praiano, and the breathtaking fjords of Furore, Amalfi, and Atrani...so be sure to bring your camera!
Need to get from Positano to Capri?
Arrive in style with one of Gianni's transfer-excursions: from Positano sail along the Amalfi Coast and across the water to Capri where, before you disembark, Gianni will sail you all the way around the island's spectacular coastline, with your bags safely covered to keep them dry!
Feeling hungry? Ask Gianni to recommend a restaurant for lunch and he'll come up with a list of the best beachfront eateries on the whole Amalfi Coast, from the most famous towns of Amalfi or Positano, to the sleepiest fishing villages known only to locals, where you can sail directly to the dock.
You can't leave the coast without a souvenir from one of the tiny local artisan workshops or an example of Positano's classic Mediterranean resort-style clothing and sandals. Take time to wander the twisting, boutique-lined streets of Amalfi and Positano...
The Rich History of the Sea, Island, and Coast
Jackie Kennedy Onassis or Prince Pupetto of Sirignano, the famed "sfogliatella di Santa Rosa" pastries, the legend of Ulysses and his Sirens set between the Li Galli Islets and the tiny islands that dot the sea beyond Positano. The history of this beloved stretch of coastline is a captivating blend of fact and myth, with a generous helping of glamour and gossip...let Gianni share with you the most fascinating (and unbelievable!) tales of this land and its sea.
