Boat Tour from Naples to Capri

Ever have one of those days that seem too good to be true?  Chartering our private boat and driver from Naples to circle Capri was exactly just that.  Beautiful and amazing views, crystal blue waters, relaxing and fun!  Seeing the amazing cliffs, grottos, and coastline from the water was simply breathtaking.

Or boat tour left early from Torre Del Greco and we spent an entire day on the Coast of Capri.  

Prices depend on size of boat and season.  If you are lucky like us, you might find a Groupon and get a steal. I found that contacting them via FB messenger got the quickest response.

SUP Positano, Praiano and Amalfi

Windsurf Praiano, located at the Marina di Praia is now listing SUPs for rent by the hour or 3 hrs at a time available at Positano, Praiano and Amalfi.  The Amalfi Coast is best seen from the water.  Get out and SUP!  Do pay attention to the water currents and waves.  The choppiest water I’ve ever SUP’d on was in Positano.  But it does have calm times!

SUP Tour Amalfi Coast – Cetara to Erchie

This is the second time I’ve done a SUP (Stand Up Paddling) tour with this company and it is one of my favorites.  The water has been very calm both times and the views are amazing.  They launch from Hotel Cetus (parking is at the hotel) near Cetara and have 2 options to go towards the beach in Vietri or to go around the cape past Erchie.  Both directions take 2 hours are amazingly awesome.  The trip to and from Vietri is a bit easier as you’re more protected and the water is generally calmer.  In the afternoons, the wind picks up near Cetara.  Morning tours are best.  The guides carry insurance, follow along in a boat and take pictures.  The company provides the SUP boards, paddles, life jackets and safety leashes.  Great experience.  I’ve been talking to them about rates, so if you’d like to book, mention me (Julie) when you email or call Giusy for better rates or contact me and I’ll help you schedule a tour.  They do provide a guide that can give instructions.  Amazing and a MUST DO!  Minimum 2 people, maximum 5 people.  Rates vary from €45-55 per person, depending on number in group.
