Information about Boat Rentals on Capri

Where are boat rentals on Capri located?
Most boat rental and charter companies on Capri are located in Marina Grande, the island's port and marina. This is where most private boat tours will depart from and where you can hire a dinghy or boat without a skipper. There is only one boat rental company based in Marina Piccola, on the southern coast of the island.
Do I need a boating license to rent a boat on Capri without a skipper?
Not necessarily: there are small boats and dinghies which can be rented without a skipper even if you don't have a boating license. We recommend a minimum amount of boating experience to rent a boat independently, however.
How do I visit the Blue Grotto with a private boat or tour?
The Blue Grotto is classified as a museum, so you must purchase a ticket at the cave entrance (there is a floating ticket office). No boat tours on Capri include the price of the ticket to enter the Blue Grotto, so tickets must always be purchased separately. Visitors can enter the cave only when sea conditions are calm and it is safe to pass. You can check our Blue Grotto page to see if the cave is open or closed each day.
If you rent a boat without a skipper, once you arrive at the entrance to the Glue Grotto you can anchor your craft to a buoy and a rowboat will come pick you up and take you through the cave mouth into the Grotto.
Visiting the Blue Grotto
Can I rent a boat to go from Capri to the Amalfi Coast?
Of course. There are a number of companies which offer boat tours of Capri and the Amalfi Coast departing from the island and arriving in Positano, or vice versa. A large gozzo or speedboat is always used for this type of tour.
Rent a boat in Positano or the Amalfi Coast
Is there a less expensive alternative to a private boat rental on Capri?
Yes, you can join a group boat tour which navigates around the entire island stopping at the Blue Grotto. Tickets cost around EUR 18 per person, the tour lasts about two hours, and departs from Marina Grande. The tour companies which organize group tours are Laser and Motoscafisti.
