Naples: Molo Beverello and Calata Porta di Massa
In Naples, there are two locations where passengers board for Capri connected by a free shuttle service: Molo Beverello, where high speed ferries depart, and Calata Porta di Masso, where ferries and slow ferries depart. Schedules are very different in the summer and winter months. In summer, there are routes which run more frequently, and seasonal routes to additional destinations including Positano, Ischia, and Salerno. Routes and schedules are constantly updated and refer to the current week.
Schedule and duration times
Ferry schedules vary widely between the summer and winter seasons: the summer schedule is usually in effect from after Easter through the beginning of November. The schedule may also vary during the season, so we suggest double-checking the schedule a few days before your travel dates.

Where do I board in Naples for Capri?
There are two piers in Naples where passengers board the ferry for Capri: Calata di Massa for slow ferries and ferries, and Molo Beverello for high speed ferries. The two piers are a bit less than a kilometer apart,and there is a shuttle service between the two. Cruise ships dock at the pier adjacent to Molo Beverello.
Embarking Vehicles for Capri
Vehicles can embark at Calata di Massa, though non-resident vehicles are permitted to embark for the island only from the beginning of November to Easter; the rest of the year, non-resident vehicles are prohibited from the Island of Capri.
In Case of Rough Seas
Ferry routes may be suspended in case of rough seas. High speed ferry routes are the first to be suspended, while slow ferries and ferries are only suspended in cases of extremely rough seas. From April to the end of October, it is extremely rare that all routes are suspended. For updated information, contact the ferry companies or the Capri Information Office by telephone (+39 081 8370686).
For travellers who get seasick, we suggest booking slow ferries or ferries, and avoiding the high speed ferry. If you are taking a high speed ferry, choose a single-hulled ship, which is more stable on the water than a double-hulled catamaran. When the seas are rough, we recommend all travellers avoid the catamaran between Naples and Capri and vice versa, which can be hard on the stomach of even the most seasoned sailors.
Information for disabled travellers
By law, all ferries must be handicapped accessible. However, we recommend contacting the ferry company before your travel date to confirm that the ferry is accessible and to request assistance during boarding and disembarking.
