Departure from Positano and Tour along the Amalfi Coast

The tour begins at the Lucibello dock, in the heart of Spiaggia Grande in Positano. Our staff awaits you in our private lounges, where you can comfortably await your boarding with a drink and some snacks. Once we depart from Positano, we embark on a journey to discover a stunning stretch of coastline. From the sea, we behold the beaches of Positano, the village of Praiano, the Furore Fjord, and Conca dei Marini, until we reach the entrance of the Emerald Grotto.

Visit to he Emerald Grotto

The Emerald Grotto is a natural wonder, deeply rooted in the millennia-old history of the Amalfi Coast. Discovered in 1932 by a local fisherman, it owes its name to the light filtering through a huge fissure in the ceiling, creating emerald-green reflections on the limestone walls. A true underwater temple, the Emerald Grotto has attracted visitors since ancient times for its unique beauty and the legends surrounding it. 

With our private boat tour, you can explore this magical place and be enchanted by its suggestive and mysterious atmosphere. The visit to the Grotto lasts approximately 20 minutes and is done with a rowboat at an additional cost. Waiting for your turn for entry is required.

Swimming stop and return to Positano

After visiting the Emerald Grotto and boarding again, the private tour continues towards Positano. We sail along the coast, stop for a swimming break near the Grotta dell'Africana in Praiano, and then return to Positano.
