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!

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.

"Best boat trip ever!!! We got all the information that we need and we had time to swim. Perfect combination!! I can only recommend!!"
"Such a great time. Our guide was so great. Lots of time to see everything and a ton of time to jump off the boat and swim in the Mediterranean Sea. Loved it so much. "
"Tour was great, however, we didn't get a lot of time to swim, no snorkeling gear was provided, and no towels or drinks were provided to us, as stated in the description. Also started about 20 min late"
