FAQ – Blue Grotto Tours Capri

Are boat tours around the island of Capri worth it?

Spending your time around the coastline of Capri is well worth your time and money. The island is home to various sea caves reflecting colors from the sun, harbors of different sizes, and rock formations dating thousands of years. Joining the Capri boat tour of the island, guided by a professional local skipper, will allow you to experience the beauty of Capri from the sea. You will have a chance to hear local stories about history, traditions, and legends connected to different attractions. Relax and dip in the crystal-clear Tyrrhenian Sea, snorkel around the rich maritime life, and sunbathe on the deck while enjoying some snacks and drinks most of the boat companies provide during the tour. Boat tours give you exclusive access to the secluded beaches and swimming spots inaccessible by land and incredible sightseeing opportunities. So, don't hesitate to book the Capri boat tour that best suits you and take in the serene atmosphere of the island life.

What time is best to visit the Blue Grotto?

Grotta Azzurra is definitely one of the most popular tourist attractions of Capri Island. Due to that, the queue to enter the cave is often way too long, and many boat tours stopped putting a stop to the Blue Grotto in their itinerary because of losing too much time waiting in front. Keep in mind that you can book a Private boat tour Capri and customize the tour so it makes a stop there, or you can hop on a gozzo boat (traditional wooden rowboat) and pay the entrance fee. Remember that the grotto is open only during favorable sea conditions and during the day. The best time to visit Grotta Azzurra is during the early mornings when you can experience the magical blue hues of the water, and hopefully, arriving there as soon as the cave opens will result in avoiding the crowds. Another popular time to visit the cave is around noon to two, but there is a bigger chance to run into crowds then, and as the sunlight changes, the colors of the cave may not be as intense as early in the morning. You can also plan to visit the cave off-season, but please keep in mind that the grotto is closed if the tide and weather conditions are risky for visiting sea caves.

Can you swim inside the Blue Grotto?

Swimming inside the cave is forbidden due to overcrowding, safety concerns, and the protection of the cave's delicate ecosystem. In addition to the crowds and naturally narrow interior of the cave, changing tides and sea conditions, swimming inside of the cave could lead to severe injuries. Keep in mind that swimming can result in receiving a fine. Rather, opt for a visit in a small rowboat and enjoy the interior of the cave safely and respectfully.

How can I visit Capri from other parts of Italy?

Capri is a popular stop for many visitors during their trip to Italy due to the scenic beauty and calm ambiance of the island life. If you wish to stay on the island for a few days, you can plan your trip accordingly. Otherwise, there are many day tours to the island of Capri. Capri boat tours from Sorrento include a pick-up at various locations with a yacht and an optional visit to the Grotta Azzurra. Amalfi to Capri boat tour takes you on a boat tour around Capri's coastline with complimentary drinks and food, including plenty of free time to explore the wonders of Capri. You can also join a Rome to Capri day trip if you wish to get away from the bustling capital, spend a day in Southern Italy, and treat yourself to a day next to the sea!

Fantastic tour!

The boat tour was a perfect way to explore Capri's surroundings. I even found it a better value than some other boat companies like Laser Capri, etc. Our guide, Roberto, has a wealth of knowledge, and we highly recommend taking a tour with him!



Worth every moment of your time! We had a one-day stay at Capri, so this was an incredible way to explore the coastline, and we still had enough time to go to Mount Solaro at sunset. We had a blast and loved hearing about the island from a local guide. Trust me, you don't want to miss this experience, as seeing Capri from the sea is a must-do!


Dip in, sip a drink & relax with the sights of breathtaking Capri's coastline!
