Your private boat excursion
If Odysseus had to be tied to his ship’s mast to resist the seductive songs of Capri’s sirens, just imagine the effect this mythical island will have on you.
AutoVenture will bring you closer to the culture with a private boat excursion and tour of Capri. For centuries, travelers have been lured to this mythical island’s rocky coastline and your private AutoVenture guide will introduce you to Capri’s most captivating sites.
The voyage begins from Punta Campanella, at the far end of the Amalfi Coast. Your private motorboat excursion circles Capri and stops to visit the famous Blue Grotto, a brilliant, azure sea cave. You’ll also see the Faraglioni rock formation, the iconic three spires of stone that rise from the sea. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot a stunning Lucertola Azzurra, or Blue Lizard, which is unique to the island. Across from the Faraglioni is Marina Piccola, a landing on the sunny South side of the island, which is sheltered from the wind by a steep wall of rock. Here the water is always warm and even in mid-winter you might see people bathing in the sun and water.
After visiting and the White and Green Grottos, you’ll dock at the prestigious Marina Grande, home of the island’s fishermen and Capri’s “biggest beach.” You’ll have time to explore this exotic island hotspot. Next, your captain will whisk you away for a luxurious swim in the Mediterranean’s turquoise water before returning you to the unforgettable Amalfi Coast.
