We were supposed to hire a car to travel around the coast but we didn't fancy heading back to Naples to collect it (it cost twice as much to pick up from Sorrento), so we cancelled it and decided to hire a boat instead. Best decision we made!
The Amalfi coast is just stunning and the best views are looking in at it from sea.
We walked down to the nautical sic sic office in the harbour and managed to hire a boat for the next day. It cost 200 euros (you can hire a smaller boat for 150 euros but they had all gone) plus gas, which was about 40 euros. The staff were friendly and informative.
The next day we headed back down to the harbour and collected out boat. It was pretty busy and took about half an hour to sort out - this is because everyone arrives to collect the boat at the same time. I'd suggest they introduce some kind of time slot management to avoid this.
Once we were out on the water we headed around the coast stopping off at little beaches and doing some snorkelling ( you can hire the gear from Nautica) and eventually ended up in Postiano. The view coming in is just breathtaking! So beautiful! We moored up here, it costs 15 euros to leave your boat in the harbour. We enjoyed some lunch and then decided to head back in as unfortunately my partner had been quite sea sick! You can have the boat until 6pm, we arrived back about 4pm. With the time they give you, you have ample time to get down to Amalfi and see Capri - as well.
Definitely recommend this, it's great fun!
