A wonderful day! We did not miss anything .... a huge thank you to Rossella and Marlena for their professionalism, friendliness and helpfulness! They welcomed us and accompanied us on a tour of this magnificent island. Germania your guide is the choice I would always make where competence, professionalism and punctuality are always the masters!

This tour was so fun and involved quite a bit of swimming at different points around Capri. You don't stop at the island but get to circle the whole thing. There are drinks and food included but bring your own mask and snorkel!

It was all so nice! The captain and the skipper went above and beyond for all of us. Thoroughly enjoyed the service provided onboard and prior.
