Small-Group Amalfi Coast Day Cruise from Positano

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Skirt the stunning Amalfi coast, stopping to explore the most scenic stretches and villages, on this small-group day cruise from Positano. Drift leisurely along the southern Italian coast, marveling at the dramatic views. Travel by the whitewashed fishing village of Praiano, the narrow cove of the Furore fjord and Conca dei Marini, home to the shimmering green waters of the Emerald Grotto sea cave (entance depends on the wind situation). Stop intermittently to swim and snorkel, then enjoy free time in Amalfi or go up to Ravello (calculate 30min bus ride oneway). With a maximum of 12 people on board, you’ll enjoy an intimate experience.
  • Book online ahead of time to guarantee a spot on this Amalfi Coast cruise 
  • Enjoy one drink on board as a captain tells you facts about the area 
  • No need to drag snorkeling equipment along—it’s provided
  • A guide takes you to a secluded cave past Maiori for a swim
  • Choose to explore Ravello or Amalfi at your own pace
What to Expect
For this Amalfi Coast cruise, make your own way to the Positano port. Hop aboard your boat, and get ready for an exciting day of swimming, snorkeling, and exploring. Cruise by Conca dei Marini, the Emerald Grotto, the whitewashed houses of Praiano, and the Furore fjord. Your guide knows the best hidden coves to go to. Stop in a cave, and take a dip in the fresh spring water. Afterward, your boat docks at Amalfi. You can either explore Amalfi on your own or opt to go to the resort town of Ravello by bus. Either way, you can enjoy your free time without being rushed. Once it’s time to meet up with your group, get back on your boat. If there’s enough time, your tour stops at another secluded cave for a dip in the water. Your tour ends back the Positano port.
