    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: Via Marina Piccola, 80067, Sorrento Italy

    Start your day by meeting your captain and boat in the Marina Piccola harbor in Sorrento.

    Pass By: Exclusive Cruises, 84010, Amalfi Italy

    Exclusive Cruises will be your hosts for the day for your private 6-hour boat excursion from Sorrento to the beautiful island of Capri and to Positano on the Amalfi Coast. This is only a suggested itinerary below with some of the main sights highlighted. As this is a private excursion, you can customize it as you wish. Note that sights below are marked "Pass By" simply because you can decide to spend just as much or as little time as you would like at main sights. Exclusive Cruises will help you plan a beautiful and relaxed day custom fit to your interests and travel desires. Here are some highlights of the experiences and sights you will enjoy:
    - Begin the day by cruising along the Sorrento Coastline featuring inlets, crumbling towers, and deep gorges that accentuate its vast beauty.
    - Upon arriving in Capri, your captain will cruise past breathtaking island views.
    - While the island is typically crowded, its true beauties are the grottoes and rock formations that are experienced from the sea. Choose to visit the Blue Grotto if you would like (entrance fee not included) or enjoy fine sights of other notable grottoes like the Green, White, and Red grottoes, from the comfort of the boat.
    - See the Faraglioni Rock Formations, which are three massive rocks with the middle one having a small hole you can cruise right through.
    - After seeing the highlights of Capri from the sea, you will have the opportunity to visit the Amalfi Coast's best kept secret - Nerano. Nerano is a characteristic fishing village that features several beachside restaurants. This is a favorite to stop for a mid-afternoon lunch before heading to Positano.
    - After lunch cruise over to the Li Galli Islands. These legendary islands are famed for Homer’s Sirens that tempted Ulysses in “The Odyssey.” Enjoy a swim here if you wish.
    - Next you will catch sight of Positano. The view of Positano from the sea is one of the most famous in the world. You will have time at your leisure in Positano, a village which includes dozens of fine local shops. Notable attractions in Positano include the Collegiata di Santa Maria Assunta, a historic church with a colorful ceramic tiled dome.
    - Note that in addition to the sights below you will enjoy plenty of time relaxing on the boat, soaking up the sun, and stopping to swim in the most beautiful spots around Capri and along the Amalfi Coast.
