Taking a Capri boat tour around the island, is a great way to see Capri. This way you can take in all the highlights of the island along the coast.
(A ticket costs 14 euro* per person for a 1h45min boat tour.)
If you want to make a visit to the Grotta Azzura (Blue Grotto), that`s a possibility too. The big boat for the island tour makes a stop at the caves and if you want to visit the Blue Caves, you get into a small boat that takes you into the cave. The opening for the Blue Caves is very small and you have to lie down in the boat to get in! Sunlight, passing through an underwater cavity and shining through the seawater, creates a blue reflection that illuminates the cavern.
Keep in mind, the entrance is NOT included in the island boat tour. You`ll have to pay 11.50 euro* extra to go into the cave. It`s extra because not everyone wants to go into the caves. And there are days the weather doesn`t allow access to the Blue Grotto because of the small entry.
To be honest, I thought it was a lot of money to be in there for only 5 minutes. The wait to go into the caves was okay, but I`m sure in the Summer or if it`s a bit busier, the wait is a lot longer. All the boats gather in front of the caves and the entry.
However it is world famous and if you would like to have the experience: it`s a small boat that takes you in (usually 3- 4 persons) and you have to lie down to get through the narrow opening. The boatman sings “Volare” and you can admire the blue reflection! With the boat trip around the island, you get to see the Green and White caves too. I personally liked the Green one as much as the Blue one. But you can`t go in these like into the Blue Grotto.
I recommend taking a boat trip around the island as it is a beautiful way to see the island, especially on a sunny day! This way you get to see the “Green Caves”, the “Tunnel of Love” where you can sail through, the “White Caves” and much more.
