We came from Amalfi to Capri with a ferry. At the pier you will see the booth where you can buy your tickets. It’s only for the boat tour around Capri and Anacapri. For the blue grotto experience you have to pay right at the spot if it’s open on that day. Our tour was amazing. All commentary was in Italian but my husband translated for me the main points. You can take breathtaking photos and videos. They will take you to see the white, red and green grotto, Faraglioni (the rock formations with the arch- you will go through it with the boat) and other sites (art statue on the rock, villa, lighthouse and caves from far away). When you finally arrive to Blue Grotto, you may choose if you want to pay extra and go in or not (if you are not claustrophobic, don’t even hesitate! It’s magical!). Time-wise it was exactly 2 hours as promised. We left at 12 and came back at 2 PM. My advice is to take sunglasses and a hat and apply sunscreen because you are going to be exposed to sun at all times. And have comfortable clothing and shoes because if you do the Blue Grotto, you gonna have to climb out of the boat you are in to the smaller one and lay on the bottom of it. Also, you may get a little bit wet from the waves.

End October 2019 When I booked this tour for E19 I was told we would only go past the Blue Grotto due to high tide but would see the others. Didn't matter to me. I was expecting a small ferry but we got a water taxi type boat similar to those in Venice. No safety vests, wooden seating around the boat and the captain steering in the middle. Was sitting very low in the water. We were 15 people plus the skipper. It was an adventure to say the least! Super choppy at times, but I don't mind that but it was clear some were scared and held on for dear life. There was plenty to see and photograph. We even saw how they get the diving instructor and their dingy back by pulling it along behind us. Commentary was in English and Italian only. It is advertised for 1.5hrs, but went for almost 2, so make sure you have enough time to make your ferry home. Most of the better photo opportunities were for those sitting on the right side of the skipper. *Keep an eye out for - the tiny Jesus, little mermaid waving and the lighthouse. Clothing: I highly recommend a hat, wind jacket, scarf and sun screen. Camera: definitely, I kept my phone well away as I was too worried that it would fall in the ocean. Tips: some gave and some didn't I would highly recommend the end of day tour as we got our moneys worth despite not seeing the Blue Grotto.

It's unforgettable! The boat was small enough to get very close to the small grottoes and to pass through the famous arch (you see it on the picture). We traveled on October 31, and were lucky to enter the Blue Grotto. Just be aware: the Blue Grotto is operated by another company with it's own very small boats (for 4 passengers each), so expect additional charge for this.

We took this wonderful boat trip circling the Isle Capri. The boat gets up close and personal with the Isle Capri ...it enters cave entrances and and slows down for picture taking at points of interest like the Light House and Arches. It stops for some time though to allow passengers to enter the "Blue Grotto" . It is kind of chaotic as the smaller boats carrying people into the grotto gather around the larger tour boats to gather oassengers then the smaller boats have to gather entrance money and pay at a floating cashier. The Blue Grotto is rather small and also very chaotic....it has nothing on the the beautiful Emerald Grotto on the Amalfi Coast. I would skip the Grotto ...but all in all the boat trip was worth the money . The weather was perfect .

We came from Sorrento on ferry onto the island of Capri. We were a large group of 30+ (tourism group). Due to a rainy forecast the first weekend of October, all the Grottos were closed. Our tour went half way of the island, probably up to Marina Piccola (little pass the Faraglioni rocks) then back to Marina Grande. Took about 1.5 hrs. Charter boat had upper & lower deck (no air conditioning), unassigned seats. Our tour guide spoke English and did wonderful job. Despite the rain, really enjoyed the ride. What we toured was just amazing!
