Magical Capri

Boat Tour of Capri, Italy

How many times will you visit Capri in your lifetime? I hope to see you over and over again, but know that often a visit to Capri is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. So I always recommend visitors to Capri make the most of their stay and enjoy their time on the island to the fullest.

A private boat tour around the Island of Capri is the perfect way to discover the island at a relaxed pace, far from the noise and crush of the tourist crowds. I or one of my selected skippers will sail you around the coast and help you discover our island home. You will spend your time on the water relaxing on the sun deck, with cushions, beach towels, and cool drinks keeping you comfortable while we sail along the dramatic coast of Capri, Italy.

Full Day Island Tour

If you are staying on the island for more than just a few days, I strongly recommend a full day at sea, especially between June and September!

Here's how we begin our day at sea on Capri: you wake at a leisurely hour and make your way to Marina Grande's Bar Gabbiano café (our meeting place for passengers), where you can have a cappuccino and pastry for breakfast before our departure to explore the island.

Once we have rounded Tiberius' Leap, we'll stop to visit the Grotta Bianca and have a nice long swim beneath the Faraglioni rock formations.

By this time, you'll be ready for lunch! I can take you to one of the most picturesque waterfront restaurants along the coast of Capri, including the La Fontelina beach club with a view of the Faraglioni, Torre Saracena in Marina Piccola, or Ricco, the gourmet restaurant at the Capri Palace Hotel near the Blue Grotto.

After your seafood lunch on the water, washed down with a bottle of cool white wine (perhaps with slices of peach floating in your glass, a tradition on Capri), a short nap on board rocked by the waves is exactly what you'll need!

If you'd rather not miss even a minute of sun, we can arrange for a picnic on board with traditional "Caprese" sandwiches made with slices of fresh tomato and local mozzarella....washed down with some crisp white wine, of course!

In the afternoon, we'll sail along the southern coast of the island, the warmest and sunniest stretch of coastline, stopping in late afternoon for a visit to the Blue Grotto after the crush of daytrippers has left.

Doesn't that sound like the perfect day at sea?

Dinner in Nerano

Sailing by moonlight is simply magical! Everyone should sail beneath a canopy of stars at least once in their lifetime...

On a balmy summer night, common during the warmest months on Capri, with calm seas, a full moon lighting a path along the waves, and the twinkling lights along the Gulf of Naples in the distance.... Simply magical!

For those who want to experience this magic, I suggest a moonlight sail to Nerano from Capri.

We leave at sunset from Marina Grande to head to Nerano, where you can stop for dinner at the Conca del Sogno, a romantic restaurant tucked in a tiny cove only accessible by boat. We'll sail back to Capri after your meal, with precious memories of your evening to be savored for years to come!
