How does the visit to the Blue Grotto and other Capri sea caves work?
In order to protect Capri's natural marine environment, boats with engines aren't allowed to enter its sea caves. If you're aboard a speedboat or a motorboat you can, however, still view the caves from the outside. Visitors can see the Blue Grotto from the inside by boarding a small two-seater rowboat. Your motorboat will stop offshore and then you'll board a rowboat, which is the only type of boat allowed to enter the Blue Grotto.
Is snorkeling gear available on board the boat?
Yes, all luxury boats and yachts have snorkeling equipment on board to allow guests to explore the underwater beauty of the Mediterranean Sea. Children's equipment is available upon request, as well as water games and jet skis.
Where do luxury boat tours depart from?
The departure ports for this type of tour are usually Capri, Naples, Marina di Stabia, and Sorrento. There aren't any ports along the Amalfi Coast equipped for large boats but it is certainly possible to request pick-up service at the various embarkation piers. All the companies have a concierge service that organizes private transfers from Rome or other locations to reach the port of embarkation.
