Capri Cruise Excursion from Sorrento


Itinerary

1 Get On Board Your Boat At Il Porto Marina di Cassano

At the heart of the Bay of Naples and between Amalfi Coast and Capri lies the seductive Il Porto Marina di Cassano. It’s an alluring sea village and a major tourist port on the coast of Sorrento that offers a plethora of excursions and activities to trippers. It’s here that you’ll climb aboard your boat to cross the Sorrento coast before getting to the marvelous island of Capri. 


2 Sail Through Marina Grande – Antico Borgo Marinaro

Marina Grande is an old-fashioned fishing harbor that nestles in the middle of the cliffs. This marina offers a relaxing getaway where you can peacefully enjoy the view of the ocean while enjoying delicious homemade sandwiches and refreshing drinks onboard your boat.

While sailing, you’ll have the opportunity to see the beauty of the narrow towering cliffs that surround the marina. Children will most definitely enjoy this trip, for they can see the fishermen in action catching and hauling the fishes they caught for the day. 


3 Stop At Bagni della Regina Giovanna

While you are boating along the Sorrento coast with a delicious limoncello in your hand, you’ll enjoy the stunning views of the impressive Roman villa ruins near Bagni Della Regina Giovanna and immense rocks from where a waterfall flows right into a natural bathing pool. 


4 Stop At White Grotta

The White Grotto is one of the picturesque caves and tourist attractions along the coast of Capri. White Grotto was named after the white rock formations that formed the facade of the cave. It’s s a trip-worthy tour to see the spectacular rock formation. Just at the entrance of the White Grotto, you’ll see some stalactites and stalagmites that look like the image of the Virgin Mary. It’s beautiful!


5 Stop At Green Grotta

After visiting the White Grotto, your skipper will bring you to the south side of the island of Capri to explore the famous Green Grotto. The colors of the rocks (yellow and green) reflect on the water when the sun shines, making this place stunning. Make sure to take pictures!


6 Sail Through I Faraglioni

Off the coast of Capri lies the three gigantic rock formations that rise out to the sea. The small rock is called Faraglioni di Mezzo, the middle rock, Faraglioni di Fuori and the highest rock, Faraglioni di Terra. It’s one of the most popular tourist destinations on the island, and visiting it in spring or fall would be ideal to avoid the swarming visitors. A legend says that couples who kiss while passing under the arch will love each other for the rest of their life.


7 Sail Through  Villa Malaparte

It is a private residence located in Punta Massullo in the east of Capri. The architectural design of the villa exemplifies Italy’s modern and contemporary design. This boat tour will allow you to view the unique architecture that looks like a ship on top of the rock. If you are an enthusiast of architectural designs, you’ll be well spoiled!


8 Sail Through Punta Carena Lighthouse

Punta Carena is one of the brightest lighthouses in Italy. In the summer, tourists flock to bathe under the sun and swim in the crystal clear water in the bay of Punta Carena. But what makes this area so unique is its natural beauty and breathtaking coastal views. No doubt about it, boating is the best way to admire Punta Carena’s lighthouse.


9 Stop At Piazza Umberto I

Once you arrive in Capri, you’ll have about 3 to 4 hours of free time to stroll around the island. After this boat tour, you may want to relax in one of the coffee bars in Piazza Umberto first before you head to the center or Anacapri.

A small overview of Piazza Umberto. It’s one of the most popular squares on the island of Capri. This spot was once a humble fishing village; today, it’s a popular tourist attraction. There are plenty of things you can do there.

Just be aware, this place is relatively expensive. Both The bus station and funicular station are situated right near the Piazza Umberto square. So if you need public transportation, you’ll find it easily. Have a great day!


When is the Best Time to Do the Boat Tour?

Although tourist starts to flock in Capri from the beginning of the Easter holidays up to the first half of November, the best time to do the boat tour would be from April to June or September to October. These are the best times to enjoy the tours because of the more favorable temperatures, and the visiting tourists are fewer in these months, allowing you to enjoy the island better.

  • You will certainly get wet, and you certainly don’t want to find yourself changing shoes when you get onshore. Also, Capri’s beaches are rocky, so you must get good water shoes for walking that dry fast.

  1. Hi, Capri is a beautiful destination to visit. My husband lived for many years in Italy and talked to me about beautiful places to visit, including Capri. I’m glad that you present here a detailed and well organized boat tour for one day. My daughter is a young toddler, and I like to have her in my vacation in Italy. I’m happy that you have not restrict for young babies. What about pets, can we cake our dog, too?

    thank you 

    • Hi Alketa,

      Small children are allowed, but I doubt it’s pet-friendly. This is something you will have to ask the company itself when booking the excursion:)

      Let me know if you need more info. I’ll be more than happy to help.

      Thank you for the comment, and I wish you a lovely day.

  3. This island cruise from Sorrento to Capri looks and sounds amazing and ticks all the boxes for sights to see on the way there as well. Would they still you up if you are not staying in a hotel, but from private accommodation? 

    You mention that lunch is not included in the cost of the boat trip. So does that mean one can choose your own place in Capri, or do they make a reservation for the group?

    Do they stop anywhere that one can have a swim in the sea en route?

    • Hi Line,

      Yes, there are so many beautiful spots to see on the way to Capri and in Capri island:) To answer your question, this boat doesn’t provide any guest room on board. It’s designed only for short excursions on the water. If you want to stay on the boat for a few days, you will either have to charter a boat or rent a cabin on a boat.
      You have enough free time in Capri to have a great lunch:) This tour doesn’t make any reservations for the group. But you certainly can book in advance, and when you get to Capri, you can relax and enjoy your meal. If the sea is calm, your skipper will stop in a safe spot where you’ll be able to swim in the clear blue water.
      I hope it helped. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to know more info. I’ll be more than happy to assist.

      Thank you for the comment, and I wish you a great day.

    There is also a famous italiana drama set in Capri. It’s the vips’ island. 

    Thank you again,
    Maja
