Gennarino and Wendy's fleet
It's easy to spot Capri Whales' boats in the port of Marina Grande: all thirteen of them are painted bright yellow. Onboard, you'll find everything you need for a memorable day at sea, from masks and flippers to beach towels and an ice box filled with cold drinks.
Did you know, Gennarino was one of Capri's very first underwater divers? In fact, it was Gennarino who discovered the Roman statues in the Grotta Azzurra!
Your ideal trip
The Faraglioni, Grotta Azzurra, Punta Carena, Grotta Verde, Grotta Bianca: just some of the unforgettable sights on a trip sailing around Capri's spectacular coastline. If you'd rather cruise along the Amalfi Coast, travel across the sea for a fish supper in Nerano, or sail around the island's Ischia and Procida, all you have to do is ask!
An amateur sailor?
If you fancy trying your hand at the helm, you can rent a dinghey or one of the island's traditional fishing boats. Alternatively you can charter a boat and let Capri Whales' professional sailors do the work for you.

In Marina Grande, Capri's picturesque little port, ask a local where you can find Gennarino and they'll point you to a tiny souvenir shop: the somewhat unlikely head quarters of Capri Whales.
Wherever you're staying on the island, it's easy to get to Capri Whales: by taxi, bus, or by the funicular railway train which links Marina Grande with the Piazzetta.
