Boat trip to Capri Italy!
Ahhh, Capri. The lure of Capri, Italy has always been a place of dreams and an island paradise I talked about going to but never dared to put into reality. Until now! With its charming cobbled footpaths filled with lemon groves and gated villas to the famous blue grotto, this island just off of Naples and the Amalfi Coast makes it an immensely popular destination for tourists. Explore the coast and caves while cruising to beautiful stopping points where you’ll want to swim in crystal clear blue waters adorned by fantastic views around the whole bay. The burning question is how to get there? By boat of course…but not just any ol’ boat! Treat yourself to a private luxury charter boat that will have people admiring and smiling at your charter boat that like the Italians is suave and stylish. That said, Sorrento Luxury Charter took us on the most magical boat trip to Capri while making us feel like a celebrity rock star.
We started from the port of Sorrento and were greeted with a sleek and luxurious all-white boat, the Tornado 45 Express. It is all decked in white leather fully stocked with drinks and small bites so you can enjoy an impressive array of saltine snacks while indulging on some prosecco or champagne. I was so excited to have the entire boat to ourselves to truly enjoy the scenic ride.
Our guide and Captain Robbie really is the man. He inherited the business from his father and has been manning Luxury Charter for 10 years now. He and his father have had some of the most high-profile clientele including Jay-Z, Beyonce, Serena Williams, and more! Knowing that, I understand why celebrities would want to book with Robbie. He truly makes anyone, from the A-list celebs to regular tourists like us, feel like a million bucks in his beautiful charter boats.
The boat comes with plush pillows, towels, and a nice indoor area to rest with a bathroom.

We were taken to many different rock formations and cliffs, each with different stories and myths provided by Robbie.
The tunnel of love, a massive arch eroded out of the rock that boats can sail through.
Couples also go under it for good luck!

Swimming in the Grottos
Now it was time to take a cool dip in the beautiful clear blue water!
After a dip in that crystal blue water, you can use the boat’s built-in shower spray to get fresh and clean for the next destination.
We continued the trip visiting other different grottos and caves. If I could, I would swim all day in the water, it was that beautiful.
The brilliant blue light of water. We did pass by the very famous blue grotto where people go onto separate row boats to get in. Robbie did mention it is very touristy and congested, but was kind enough to even offer to bring us back after the tourists were gone so we could swim uninterrupted if interested.
Arriving at the dock at Capri Island!
After a short trip on the funicular to the city center, you are greeted with beautiful views.
We wandered around the cute island. Capri is a cute little touristy town and Robbie will provide a few recommendations if you wanted to eat. We walked around and grabbed gelato. To be honest, I would spend more time lounging on the boat and swim in the ocean if you can! Just relax, soak up the sun in paradise.
Big thumbs up to Sorrento Luxury Charter and Robbie for being such a great host and providing such a memorable boat trip!

Finally, make sure you bring your camera and waterproof camera, you’ll definitely want to catch every moment. As you can see, I went on a photo rampage because everything was so picturesque!
Robbie and his assistant truly made our experience amazing. He communicated with me frequently right up until the time we went on the boat and checked up on us after the cruise so that he could ensure we had a good time throughout the trip. Robbie also operates with his partner Flavio whom I did not get a chance to meet. Robbie’s knowledge for the entire Amalfi Coast and Capri is remarkable and is colored with different stories, myths, and morsels about Italy’s culture. I am convinced there is only one true way to explore the South of Italy and that is with their swanky charter boats. To be truly uninhibited and to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience, I recommend booking a trip with them. You won’t regret it and you’ll definitely never forget it. I can’t wait to go on another boat ride with them! With ocean water that is unbelievably pristine and blue, there is really no better way to see south of Italy than by boat. Best of all, they have a variety of other boats and yachts on hand depending how large of a party you want. Save some euros or grab a group and go treat yourself on this special adventure. Sorrento Luxury Charter will make you feel like a rockstar with their exceptional service and ritzy boat trips!
