Ischia- Grotto del Mago

I'm staying in Naples for almost a week and was undecided on whether or not to go to Ischia or Capri (I really needed a few more days in Naples to do everything I wanted). I decided Ischia was more for me even though I really wanted to see the Blue Grotto (yes I know extremely touristy but I want to see it!). I found out that there is a similar grotto on Ischia so that made my decision. Do they have sailors who take you in the grotto like at the Blue Grotto? I cannot seem to find any information on this as far as the fees and whatnot. All I can find is renting your own boat or hiring someone for like 200 Euros.

Thanks

If you google Grotto dell Mago you get a lot of hits, but they’re all in Italian. You can translate them on google also. I went to www.ischiareview.com which has a lot of info about Ischia but it has nothing about the grotto.

Hi Jerry. Yes I've Googled this to death and know how to use Google Translate :)

I cannot seem to get any information on something where a sailor will take you to the grotto unless you book privately which I cannot afford to do as a party of 1. In Capri they have this for the Blue Grotto and it costs 14 Euros.

In any case I will email the people at the website you gave me and hope they can answer my question.

That link was helpful Jerry. I emailed them and basically it's not something that you can just stand in line for and get a spot :( They said I would have to get a water taxi and since I'm a party of 1 it would cost (at least) 52 Euros.Looks like I might just do Capri.
