Full description
Experience the majestic beauty of Capri by boat on a trip around the entire coast, and marvel at the caves that line the shore along with other natural features. You can choose to depart in the morning on a boat scheduled to arrive at the Blue Grotto before 13:00, when the lines can be very long. Take advantage of non-stop departures every 30 minutes from Pier 21 in the Marina Grande, and then cruise across the sparkling waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Pass iconic attractions, such as Tiberius's Leap where, according to legend, disobedient servants and undesired guests at the Villa Jovis were hurled over the cliff on the orders of Emperor Tiberius. See the stone arch of Arco Naturale, dating from the Paleolithic age, and pass the iconic Faraglioni rock formations before your arrival at the Blue Grotto. To visit the sea cave, board the small wooden rowboat and pay the additional €15 entrance fee. The visit is optional, and the lines can sometimes be as long as 2 hours. Along the way, benefit from the services of an English-speaking skipper - some also speak French and Spanish.

Important information

Know before you go

  • If the Blue Grotto is closed due to sea conditions, the duration of the tour will be 1 hour. This is because 1 hour would be spent waiting in line for entrance to the grotto
  • If the Blue Grotto is closed due to adverse weather conditions, the tour operator is not liable to refund transport costs
  • When the Blue Grotto is open, the stop will be 2 hours. When the sea cave is closed, only 1 hour will be spent here
  • Please keep your voucher until the end of the tour as it also functions as a receipt
  • Should the waiting time for entrance to the Blue Grotto exceed 45 minutes, the crew reserves the right to return to the port. In this case the passenger has the right to reuse the tickets to the Blue Grotto on a future departure

The tour was good. It went around the island in about an hour with little fun facts about the island, and we manage to sail through the arch, which is great seeing it but fun to go through it. The boat was a sizeable boat, that fit around 100 or so passengers. The one down side of this is the confusion around boarding the boat. When we arrived to the boat, we were told that we cannot board unless we have tickets, which we had to run about 30m away to get the tickets in time to board the boat. We also realised that it is not timed, so it appears we can just board whichever boat was available.

La vista desde el bote es increíble (traten de subir al piso si pueden), el guía fue muy amable y nos dio mucha información en italiano e inglés. Salimos a las 10:15 am y no pudimos entrar al blue grotto porque ya había una fila de más de una hora. Sin embargo solo el trayecto valió mucho la pena

Stopped at all the grottos, passed thru the arch, our captain was very informative, capri island is stunning. Got to go in the blue grotto, cool experience. How they do it is they drop off everyone at the dock then you join another boat back to the blue grotto, only 10 min away, no extra cost except the grotto, be prepared for your boat guide to ask for a tip, kinda annoying. So the tour is 1 hour plus the wait for the grotto is another hour.
