Why we love this trip

  • Step back in time among the olive groves, ancient villages and medieval architecture of Amalfi. This town retains a rustic charm that makes it a unique location to explore

  • Explore the caves of Capri’s Grotta Azzura and swim in the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean

  • If it was good enough to be the holiday destination of Roman emperors, the idyllic city of Capri is good enough for anyone. With its boutique shops and Limoncello culture, Capri oozes exclusivity

  • Let the soothing sounds of the waves nurse you to sleep at night aboard the comfort of a yacht

  • With its pastel buildings and tranquil marina, the town of Procida is a great place to relax by the sea or explore on foot. It provides you with the best of both worlds

  • Taste some of the freshest seafood in the world, which is fished from the coast every single morning

Is this trip right for you?

  • You don't need to complete a Physical Participation Form, but it's important to read the trip notes carefully to make sure you're suited to this trip. You’ll need to feel comfortable with moving about the boat. The cabins and communal areas are spread over two decks, and the steps between decks are steep.

  • You will be entering and exiting a Zodiac boat during wet and dry landings and when returning from snorkelling. Although the waters are usually calm, it can get rough and choppy, which requires steady sea legs and a sturdy stomach. Rain or shine, your trusty crew will always be on hand to assist you.

  • The boats are real yachts, and this is a real sailing trip. Yachts are designed to maximise living area space, so sleeping quarters (typically four twin-share cabins) can be a bit cramped. That said, the adventure and exhilaration of an authentic sailing trip more than makes up for any discomfort.

  • While at sea and when exploring the islands, you may be exposed to the sun for large parts of the day. It’s important to use sun protection and drink plenty of water.

  • Sometimes changes to the itinerary are necessary due to the weather. This can happen with little notice. If you're flexible and have a sense of humour, you're bound to have a fun and relaxing trip across this beautiful part of the world.

  • It's important to have fun, but also to respect your shipmates who might be sleeping. If you do enjoy a late night out, consider booking a hostel (where available) for the night so you don't wake your fellow travellers (and more importantly the skipper) upon your return.

Itinerary

Welcome to Amalfi, Italy. Your adventure begins with a group meeting at 1pm today. We'll be collecting insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so ensure you bring these details to provide to your leader. The first port of call is then the local supermarket to buy supplies for your trip as a group. If you have any special dietary requirements, please make sure you notify us at the time of booking so we can accommodate your requests.

The rest of the day is free to discover the town of Amalfi and its surrounds. Perhaps check out the medieval architecture of the cathedral of Sant'Andrea and convent of the Cappuccini. You may like to take a walk along narrow trails through olive groves, vineyards and ancient villages. The trails are steep and have many stairs, but offer spectacular views over the ocean. In the evening, partake in an optional group meal of local seafood and gelato. You'll spend tonight aboard the boat.

Notes: The beauty of sailing is that each day is unique and, while we have a destination to reach, if the weather changes or something takes the group’s fancy, we are flexible on the day's itinerary. The itinerary is subject to change and may vary depending on weather and berth availability. Your skipper will make the final call to ensure your safety at all times.

Today set sail to the Isle of Capri, once home to the magnificent holiday palaces of the Roman emperors. This afternoon, perhaps explore the Grotta Azzura (Blue Grotto). To get there, take a small motorboat and then transfer to a smaller rowing boat. Although swimming in the grotto isn’t permitted, there’s a small platform close by where you can take a dip. If you choose to return from the Blue Grotto by car, you can stop off at the quiet hillside town of Anacapri. In the evening, take some time to wander through the traffic-free streets of Capri Town.

Note: Please note that access to the grotto will be closed if sea conditions are considered too rough.

Meals Included

This morning relax in the sun or perhaps catch a funicular railway to Capri Town, Anacapri or Marina Grande. If you head to Anacapri, it's worth visiting the Villa San Michele - the former home to a Swedish doctor that's built on the ruins of a Roman villa. Make your way to Capri Town by the Phoenician Steps (Scala Fenicia), which is a long, steep stairway that links the towns of Capri and Anacapri. A moderate level of fitness and comfortable shoes are required if you decide to climb the steps. In the afternoon say goodbye to the Isle of Capri and, weather permitting, set sail back to Procida, which is the final stop. Tonight, enjoy a final group dinner, in town, of rabbit stew or seafood, local wine and Limoncello.
