The Island of Capri! An Unforgettable Boats-Tour!

I love coming back to Italy to eat amazing food, watch Italians move their hands in the air and to swim in the perfect temperature of the Mediterranean waters. The island of Capri is a beautiful little island with only two suburbs and this time around I indulged in a boatstour around the island of Capri and in this blog you will find out about pricing, what to expect and to see…

Location of Capri

This beautiful island is a 40 min boat ride away from the main land Naples or Sorrento. You can get a ticket from either mainland for 18 EUR per person one way.

 

Looking for a place to sleep in Capri?

It is really expensive to find a hotel in Capri and one of the cheapest options is to find a room via AIRBNB/Capri if you wish to stay on the island. However, if you only want to do a day tour to Capri a much cheaper alternative is to stay on the mainland such as Naples Booking.com/Naples or the beautiful Sorrento [little more expensive] Booking.com/Sorrento

 

Price of the boat tour around the island of Capri

It is seasonal and cost around 200 EUR for a 3 hour ride. But if you share the boat with 5 people you split the costs 🙂

 

Capri Island boat ride includes

  • 2-3 hours ride around the island
  • Up to 7 people can fit on a small boat
  • Stop and swim in the ocean (once or twice)
  • Stops at diverse look out points and grottos
  • Shower on board to wash of sea water
  • A cool box to place your drinks

Capris “La Grotta Azzura”

The Blue Grotto is the most famous sea cave in Capri. Here you need to pay additional admission fee of 13 EUR per person to get inside the Grotto with a little boat. Its crazy to see those boats waiting for the waves to be “low” in order for the boats to fit into that tiny hole!!! Gives me goose-bumps every time I see that!

But once inside the water looks just amazing as the sunlight reflects through the cave and creates a blue reflection in the water.

Capri’s lookout statue

Capri legend says that a young man was waiting for his fiancé to arrive from the mainland to return to him. So he climbed up that rock every day to look out for her boat. As he did that over a long period of time and every single day they placed this statue there to remember him by…

Conclusion

It was an amazing experience and I wish I had done it much earlier!!! There is no better way to see the entire Island and to swim in the middle of the Oacean. I loved it!!! Only thing is the pricing but if you go with a group you can save some money!

Thank you Enzo and Costanzo for such a wonderful trip around your amazing Island of Capri!
