Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your skipper at the Positano port and hop aboard your boat with your small group. Sit back and relax as you take off along the water, passing white sand beaches, dramatic cliffs, and scenic fishing villages.

Travel through the sparkling waters of Conca dei Marini and opt to stop at the Emerald Grotto (own expense), a famous sea cave where stalactites hang from the ceiling, stalagmites sprout from the cave floor and the waters give off a rare green hue.

Glide by the whitewashed houses of Praiano, a fishing village set into the cliffs. Continue past the Furore fjord, turning into a narrow cove not accessible by land. Pause for a refreshing swim inside the hidden caves and dip into a cascade of fresh spring water.

Afterward, dock in Amalfi to spend a few hours exploring independently. Relax with a fresh seafood lunch at your own expense, before checking out the 11th-century cathedral, the bustling harbor or the local shops. As an alternative to Amalfi, take the bus up to the resort town of Ravello for spectacular views of the coast below.

After sightseeing at your leisure, reunite with your group on the boat. If time allows, continue past Maiori for one last swim in a secluded cave.

Your full-day cruise concludes back at your original departure point.

This was awesome! The weather forecast was not good the day we scheduled but the they accommodated our schedule and made sure we were still able to get a boat tour. I heard a lot of people say you cannot go to the Amalfi coast without doing a boat tour, and they were right! The views are unbelievable and it’s a must! Highly recommended this tour. It was about 3 1/2 hours and we had some time in amalfi city.

Really nice 👌
, Jul 2021
Visiting the Amalfi coast from Positano was the best idea. You have more time in Amalfi (3h) and you don't come back late and can enjoy more Positano if you are not staying there. Mario was super friendly and is good at story telling. There was a nice atmosphere.

this is a great tour and not too expensive. We were 6 people. hermes our capitain was great. We had the freedom to decide if we wanted to stay 3 hours in Amalfi or 1 hour and go elsewhere. We swam in the ocean. A very nice day!
Fantastic day out!

Had a fantastic trip with Sandro this week. He made sure to point out the sights, helped take pictures, offered drinks and sweets at the end of the day. He made every effort to make his guests comfortable. We had a really great day swimming and taking in the sights. I'm so glad I spent the day with Sergio on the boat tour!

A perfect day tour to Amalfi coast

The guide- Marco was so kind&nice and provided all the information we need! If you stay at Positano and want to swim in the ocean(even in a cave) and visit Amalfi for a day, I highly recommend this tour!
Definitely would recommend!

Amazing tour - 100% would do it again! Our tour guide was great fun, and also Elizabeth from BlueStar was extremely helpful when we were late for our ferry back to Salerno - she managed to get us on another ferry for free and made sure that we got on safe. They also gave us a little souvenir from Positano because there was a slight delay for our return - absolutely delightful. Thank you everyone for the excellent tour and service. Hope to see you soon!
Made my holiday this boat trip!
