Day One: Capri
Welcome to the luxurious Marina di Stabia. The boat is ready to set sail. The final preparations have to be completed: after having provided the galley with the food, the skipper will be there to help you in arranging
it. Just before the departure there will be a brief safety briefing followed by some hints and suggestions on how to stay on the boat. Now we are ready to set sail and the adventure is about to begin. Once out of the port, according to the sea and wind conditions, we will adjust the sails and will immediately route on the blue island: Capri! we will cross the bay of Sorrento and coast the villages of the Sorrento peninsula, Vico Equense, Puolo, Massa Lubrense. We then will arrive to Capri with its cliffs, the endless ravines and caves are close at hand.
First stop: Blue Grotta. In small groups we will embark in the characteristic small boats with flat bottom that the expert boatmen manoeuvre to slip into the narrow entrance of the cave on the water surface. We continue the circumnavigation of the island, passing through the green cave and finally we will give the anchor to the small Marina for a refreshing dip, a snack and relax. Just after sunset when the temperature begins to be more pleasant, we will disembark with our dinghy to enjoy the famous Capri nightlife. With a small bus in just over 10 minutes we will be in the famous square. We will continue our walk following the indications for “punta Tragara” to admire a breath-taking view directly on the Faraglioni. Tired for the intense day we will return by boat to relax in the cockpit perhaps sipping a nice Limoncello.
Day Two: Amalfi
We leave Capri completing the tour of the island and passing really close to the Faraglioni Rocks. After bowing on Punta Campanella we will be officially in Amalfi coast. Stop in Nerano … a perfect bay to take a dive thanks to the south exposition and the mountains which protect the bay from the wind. We continue our navigation along the coast towards Amalfi passing by the Li Galli islands, then Positano, Praiano. After Capo Conca, Amalfi appears before us. Between the houses we will be able to see the imposing main facade of its cathedral. We enter the port where we will pass the night. Ready to go ashore to discover this town and ready to get lost among its alleys with unique views in the world.
Day Three: Positano
Transfer to Bomerano to start on one of the most beautiful hiking in the world with an unmatched landscape: the coastline, the islands of the “Li Galli” and Capri with its famous carvings. Immersed in the green and in the blue of the sea after 3 hours of walking you will reach Nocelle where we will pick you up and drive you to Positano where the boat will be waiting for you. After a regenerating shower you will be ready for an evening in the town. For dinner you can choose among many delicious alternatives; you can range from excellent pizzas to a fish base dinner in the characteristic bay of Fornillo, tasting the typical dishes of the Coastal tradition.
Day Four: Sorrento
After a relaxing and romantic night admiring the lights coming from the enchanting Positano, it’s time to get back to the sea and reach another gulf. From Salerno to the Gulf of Naples, passing by Punta Campanella. Along the route, stop in the bay of Recommone. The skipper will lead you to the discovery two particularly interesting caves to get a little cool on summer days. Before sunset we continue our navigation to Sorrento … the slight breeze of mistral will lead us to the entrance of the port. We will then dinner in one of the main sea terrace restaurants tasting a delicious Pizza and walking through the fascinating narrow streets of the town.
Day Five: Castellammare di Stabia
The morning is dedicated to running around the bay of Sorrento. If the sea conditions are good we will stop in front of a fascinating uncontaminated basin, worthy of a queen … the bathrooms of Queen Giovanna! Besides being an enchanting place, where nature, sea and past blend together, it is one of the most important archaeological sites of the peninsula. Legend has it that between 1371 and 1435, the Queen often went on holiday to this place. The Sovereign, known for her scandalous attitudes, loved to spend long time in these waters in the company of her young lovers. We will then sail up to Gradelle point for a stop in front of the beach of Meta di Sorrento. After a good swim under the sheer rock, a snack based on “fior di latte” (mozzarella) and tomatoes from the Sorrento peninsula will delight your palate. Before the sun dives into the sea we will reach the marina of Stabia for check out.
All tour are accommodated on board of a luxurious yacht of between 41ft to 52ft. Depending on the crew number the yacht can have 3 up to 5 cabins with 2/3/4 bathrooms.

About the Host
Our passion for the sea and for boats put together made their dream come true. A very special alchemy inspired them to be among the first to launch a holiday format that associates a sailing experience with history, archaeology, food, sports and lots of cultural activities that take place on the mainland!
