Rugged coastal mountains dotted with pastel cliffside villages and deep blue oceans lapping the shores of pebbled beaches – the Amalfi Coast is as relaxing as it is remarkable. Drift along Italy’s coastlines for five days and set sail to Amalfi, Capri, Ischia and Procida. Visit the home of mythical sirens, explore the ancient holiday homes of great Roman emperors and discover the spectacular natural phenomenon of the Blue Grotto. Hike along historic trails past olive groves, vineyards, lemon orchards and charming villages, stop daily swims in the glittering waters and sample mouth-watering Italian cuisine alongside regional wines. With a local leader to show you the way and plenty of time moored at port stops for your own exploration, the Amalfi Coast has never been so cruisy.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Step back in time among Amalfi's olive groves, ancient villages and medieval architecture. This town retains a rustic charm, and you’ll have plenty of time to explore before you set sail.
  • Discover the holiday destination of Roman emperors – the idyllic city of Capri. Let the isle’s history captivate you as you spend the day exploring with your small group.
  • With its pastel buildings and tranquil marina, mooring colourful Procida is ideal for relaxation by the sea with an aperitif – or exploring on foot and finding the best photo spot.
  • Explore the caves of Capri’s Grotta Azzura (the Blue Grotto) and swim daily in the glittering waters of the Mediterranean. Then, spend every night falling asleep to the gentle rock of waves on board your group’s yacht.
  • When you’re not watching the sunset on deck or exploring the coastal towns akin to paradise, you’ll be eating! With delicious regional cuisine and local, freshly caught seafood every day, you definitely won’t go hungry in Italy.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, Cooperativa Coraggio. Donations help them regenerate 22 hectares of unused public land to create local jobs and produce organic food in Italy.

Is this trip right for you?
  • As most of this trip takes place on a sailing boat, you’ll need to feel comfortable with moving about the vessel, including using stairs. If you’re prone to seasickness, it is advised that you bring some tablets from home.
  • A Zodiac is used to transport passengers from the boat to the mainland when you’re not docked at the marina. Zodiacs can sometimes be awkward to climb in and out of, but a sense of humour and a can-do attitude is all you need.
  • This is an adventure on board a real yacht, which means living spaces, cabins, bathrooms and showers need to be shared with other passengers. Sleeping quarters can be relatively compact, but you will spend most of your time above board in the open air.

ACCOMMODATION ONBOARD THIS SAILING YACHT
This trip is accommodated entirely on board a yacht of between 48ft to 52ft. A typical yacht for 8 travellers is equipped with 4 double share cabins, 2/3 shared bathrooms and 2 showers. Our boats are real yachts and this is a real sailing trip. Yachts are designed to keep sleeping areas to the absolute minimum of space, while maximising common areas as much as possible.

Rooms are allocated on arrival by our skipper according to group composition, which means it is not possible to reserve or guarantee any specific berth or cabin. Single passengers will be paired up with another passenger of the same gender, this will mean sharing a double cabin with a double mattress. Everyone including the skipper shares the bathrooms on board.

While not everyone may feel entirely comfortable living in such close quarters, those who are looking to revel in the adventure and exhilaration of an authentic sailing trip usually find any discomfort from cramped living conditions is more than made up for by the whole experience.

PASSPORT DETAILS:
Please provide full passport details at time of booking including exact name as per passport, date of birth, nationality, issue and expiry dates as these are essential for booking services on this trip.

ADDITIONAL ACCOMMODATION:
Please note that the majority of our sailing trips start and/or finish at a marina or port. If you have pre-booked any additional accommodation through us, you will need to make your own way to the joining point on Day 1 and from the finish point on the final day. We do not provide transfers between hotels and the port/marina. Please check the Essential Trip Information for details.

SNORKELLING
There are many opportunities for snorkelling during this trip. Diving masks, snorkels and fins are provided onboard the yacht and are for use by all passengers. They are disinfected prior to use. Some customers may prefer to bring their own diving mask and snorkel from home and just use the fins available on board.

TRIP KITTY:
On this trip it's compulsory to contribute to a kitty of EUR50 per person. The kitty is an on-ground payment put into a central fund managed by travellers. It helps fund for breakfast and lunch on the boat and other small items such as ice, water, snacks and drinks. Travellers are responsible for the preparation of these meals onboard and to shop at port where supermarkets are often very close to the mooring. Kitty amounts are subject to change to reflect local price increases. On day 1, the skipper will talk through the kitty and how it will be managed (by yourself or fellow travellers) The kitty will be collected when you arrive at the welcome meeting or in stages throughout your trip.

The trip was ok, the leader was great. I didn't end up enjoying it unfortunately as I was forced to sleep on a bench in a public part of the boat. Dissapointing. Waiting on resolution from Intrepid

Such a fabulous trip. Lucky enough to have a fun social group. The destinations are breathtakingly beautiful. The best way to see this part of Italy in my opinion. Weather was very hot so fans are essential!
