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.
Many of our kayaking, boating and SUP (Stand Up Paddling) adventures take place on the islands of Procida and Ischia. So how do you get there? It depends on where you are coming from, if you have a car and how flexible your schedule is. Below are your options.
FERRY: To arrive at Procida or Ischia, you can depart by ferry (‘traghetto’ in Italian) from either the port of Naples or the port in Pozzuoli. (If you are coming from the Amalfi Coast, there are ferries to Naples from Sorrento, Amalfi and Positano. There is also train service from Sorrento and Salerno) Both the port of Pozzuoli and the port of Naples have train service to/from the port and paid overnight parking available. Parking is always more difficult in prime summer months, but generally available. Ferries also allow you to pay and take your vehicle to the islands in off season only. In prime season, only vehicles from those who live on the islands are allowed. (Note: the streets are narrow, one way and steep and a bit crazy IMHO on the islands and I would not take my own car.) Traghetti to Procida only go to the main port and Traghetti to Ischia either go to Ischia Porto or Casamicciola Terme. Traghetti differ in price based on their speed. Note travel times and destinations when you buy. Also note that the different traghetti (Caremar and Gestur) have different locations at the port in Pozzuoli for buying tickets.
Ferry Hours: Traghetti – Procida, Traghetti – Ischia
WATER TAXI: You can take a water taxi from Monte Di Procida, but need a car to get to the marina at Aquamorta. Parking is easy. This is my preference because you can schedule a water taxi anytime (daylight hours) you want and they will drop you off at various places on the island. Parking is less expensive at Acquamorta and the water taxi is a few € per person cheaper as well. Mediterraneo has a small building at the port Aquamorta and will provide round trip service to/from the islands. For scheduling water taxi, here is contact information:

Once you arrive on the islands, you have a choice of bus service or taxis. Buses can be very crowded in summer months and do not have air conditioning. Depending on if you are traveling on a budget or can afford a €15 taxi fare, your options provide different levels of comfort. That said, taking an ape taxi (3 wheeled tiny truck) can be quite the experience. If you opt for the water taxi, you may not need land transportation at all as they will drop you off at your destination.
