      Buyer Beware!!
      We have been planning this holiday for 3 years. After skipping blue grotto because it was closed, we arrived at the port in Capri only to be turned away because the entire Island was closed to visitors! We had to stay on the boat for an extra few hours and a couple of us were very seasick. We came this far and never got to explore Capri town or Anacapri! Captain was great but we should not have to pay 100% for a 60% experience. We asked and Viator/Tripadvisor responded that NOTHING can be done. MBS, the boat company will not give us partial credit for giving only part what we signed up for. Buyer beware!!

      Wonderful day on the water
      I don’t usually write reviews but I had such an amazing experience on this tour that I had to share. Our guide, Luigi and Captain, Vittorio (Hope I spelled it correctly) were BOTH amazing. They have great personalities and made the trip that much more enjoyable. I hope when we finally get back to Italy they are still doing this job but I know that is wishful thinking since they are both in university studying. Thank you both for an amazing experience I will never forget!

      A “do not miss experience” for anyone in Italy! If you can get to Sorrento, you will not regret it.
      The pics were intriguing but the actual sites and experience of this boat tour were incredible! Highly recommended!!!

      Great Tour!
      Went on this tour with my wife, and we had an excellent time. Luigi was our guide and was fantastic. The boat captains of the blue grotto row boats can be a bit pushy/rude, demanding €10 per person tip and publicly calling you out if any less is given. This seemed absurd to us as the blue grotto ride was only around 10 minutes long total. Capri was a dream and Luigi made sure everyone was having the best time possible. Highlight for us was the private swim off the coast of Capri.

      Loved it !
      Very efficient, left port on time, we had a great crew who were super helpful, they pointed out various sights of interest along the way. The blue grotto was amazing and Capri was beautiful. Has 3 hours there, this went by fast! Get a taxi, not the bus as it’s so much quicker. Left port and spent time swimming and snorkeling, had photo opportunities, fruit and drinks. It’s was a lovely day, would throughly recommend it.

      Boat trip to and around Capri
      This trip was fantastic and well worth the money. We were on the boat by 8am and at the blue grotto approx 1 hour later. We had to wait for a while as it was very busy and only small groups can enter at a time, but we enjoyed the boat and the view so this was no trouble. After this we travelled to the harbour where we got off the boat and had 4 hours to spend in Capri which is a lovely island. After getting back on the boat we were given a tour around the island with the captain and guide pointing out photo opportunities and landmarks. We then stopped at the White grotto where we had an hour of free swimming and chill time which included white wine and fresh fruit. Also included on the boat was bottled water, soft drinks and beer and there was plenty of each to go around our group of 12 people. We then arrived back in Sorrento at around 4.30pm. All in all this was the best day of our holiday and I would highly recommend this trip!! 5*

      Great experience! Captain was great and shared lots of helpful information and we got wonderful experiences like swimming, champagne, information about the grottos, etc. We did not make it into the blue grotto because of long lines but we were ok with that. Lovely experience!

      Great day!
      Amazing day! Our guide, Francesco was great. We spent a few hours on Capri, having lunch and shopping. Then spent some time on the boat, swimming off the back. Disappointing to not see the Blue Grotto due to tides/weather but our guide did his best to make up for it but showing us other sites and grottos. Highly recommend.

      Fantastic fun and excellent value for money !!!
      Very professional team especially our boat captain Francesco. He was very informative and lots of fun. It was an amazing way to see the beautiful sights of Capri. The boat only allows a small group ( up to 12) so it makes for a friendly fun day out on the water.

      Great experience but note extra fees
      We had a great day with Mossimo and a great group of people. One of the highlights of our trip to Italy! You won’t be disappointed with your day! Be advised: The only thing that I would advise is there are extra fees for taking a bus into Capri. If you don’t do this you are stuck at the marina and it was an additional $40 for the bus. As stated in the listing, you also need to bring money for the port fee and blue grotto, so plan an additional 50 euros per person plus tip for boat captains. The blue grotto row boat drivers also almost demand a tip of 10 euros per person or they get very rude.

      A great day on the water with great friends
      We had the best day on the water with Sebastiano and Pasquale “Paco” we were able to get in the blue grotto and swim several times! The captain found us a great place for lunch and the service was amazing on the boat, they took great care of us! This was our 2nd boat tour with MBS Blue and we definitely would recommend them!

    Francesco was an absolutely AMAZING captain! He made sure that we thoroughly enjoyed our day at sea by providing us with recommendations for each stop, plenty of time to swim in the beautiful sea, refreshments and more. We wish we could've done the tour again the next day! We highly recommend this tour as it was a great way to see Amalfi & Positano cities, as well as the beautiful coast as a day trip from Sorrento. Thank you, MBS & Francesco!!

    The custom boat trip from Sorrento to Positano was our families favorite of our vacation. Both the Captain Alphonso & Enrico were amazing, they made the trip very special for us all - along with great stories and information about the area. Would definitely recommend this crew and boat for any trip to the Amalfi coast or Naples area.

    Absolutely fantastic tour, one I would highly recommend. Our guides were Sebastiano and Pasquale who were great. Sebastiano was a great skipper and Pasquale was extremely entertaining as well as knowledgeable. He made the tour a real highlight. Furthermore after experiencing Amalfi and Positano, the thought of visiting these sites via a hot bus is truly terrifying. Truly the best and only viable way to see these towns from Sorrento. Would very much recommend.

    Absolutely fantastic experience! The perfect way to visit Amalfi and Positano. We were given about 1.5-2hrs at each city which was plenty of time to explore a bit and grab some local food/gelato. We stopped for a nice swim as well in the most beautiful water. Highly recommend this tour as a way to see the Amalfi Coast!

    Amazing boat tour. It gave us just enough time in Positano and Amalfi to explore without getting bored. The boat was nice with a bathroom and sandwiches with beer were provided. A lot of time on the boat with 2 stops for swimming, so if you like being on a boat I would recommend. Communication was easy and super nice crew. Would recommend to anyone thinking about it!

    This was our first boat tour in Italy and it was stunning. Vincenzo and Luca were wonderful and extremely knowledgeable about the area. In case anyone is worried about stairs and a hike to the marina- there is an elevator available for a very small fee (couple of euros).

    Vincenzo and Luca prepared sandwiches for the group- which were fabulous. Our stop in Positano was incredible. There is a lot of history that is explained on the tour. Luca did a great job at keeping everyone informed. Take it all in and take a lot of photos it’s beautiful!!

    Also- there was minimal language barrier. Don’t feel uncomfortable if you don’t speak Italian.

    Wonderful way to see the Amalfi Coast and Positano. Elena and Captain Vincenzo made the experience so much nicer. They were very knowledgeable, gracious and accommodating. Highly recommend this tour. Vincenzo shared with us his wife's homemade limoncello which was delicious. They could not do enough for us to ensure we were having a great experience. You can tell they enjoy what they do and made us feel very special. We anchored and went swimming, went through beautiful caves and learned so much about the area. When they brought us to the ports, they were always punctual and gave us great recommendations of what to see in each area. Great way to see Positano and the Amalfi Coast

    We took the Amalfi Positano boat tour in June of 2023. There were three of us and this was an Anniversary trip. There were 12 people on our trip and most were Americans. The Captain and the First Mate spoke very little English. The first hour and a half was a ride out to Amalfi. The sights were beautiful but we were not offered anything to drink or eat during that time. We had two hours each of shore time in Amalfi and Positano followed by a couple stops for swimming. The trip should have included lunch and snorkeling. We received neither. They did have some beer and sangria but they ran out of both. We hit rough water the last 30 minutes and the crew left everyone’s bags out instead of moving them below. Everyone’s bags got soaked. I saw everything I wanted to see but the fact that we had all the other issues made it feel like the trip was not worth the money we spent.

    We had a wonderful trip with our 2 teenage sons - they loved the fast boat and the views, and the chance to jump off and swim in the sea. You only get a short stop in Amalfi and Positano but that suited us as it was hot and crowded being August and my family hates shopping! We had time for a coffee and ice cream in Amalfi and a swim in Positano at the public beach. It was great to have lunch and drinks included too. Our captain was very friendly and knowledgeable - highly recommend!
