About Blue Grotto Tour From Sorrento

Set sail on an unforgettable voyage from Sorrento, visiting the renowned Blue Grotto and admiring the natural wonders surrounding Capri Island. Your captain will take you to hidden bays inaccessible by land, where you can swim in the azure waters, enjoy a snorkeling adventure exploring maritime life, and raise a toast with Prosecco on board before wandering around Capri!


Blue Grotto Tour From Sorrento

It's time to cruise away from the Sorrentine Peninsula and reach the island of Capri. Glide the waters surrounding the island's coastline, admire iconic natural wonders, and swim in the blue seas.

You can choose between a half-day or a full-day boat tour, but we highly recommend leaving Sorrento early to skip the crowds in front of the famous Blue Grotto. As you reach the entrance, you will transfer to a traditional rowboat before entering the stunning cave, where you can admire sparkling shades of blue reflecting on the cave walls. As you cruise around the island, you'll witness the Green and White Grottos, the iconic Faraglioni Rocks, and the Natural Arch. Your guide will share legends and local stories about these natural attractions as you pass underneath the Lover's Arch.

Enjoy a selection of drinks during your boat ride, raise a toast with a glass of Prosecco, and take a refreshing dip in a secluded bay. The snorkeling equipment is available on board if you wish to explore the rich maritime life before disembarking at the island of Capri. You'll have enough free time to explore Marina Grande, a traditional fishing village, visit the centers of Capri or Anacapri, and take a chairlift ride up Mount Solaro to enjoy breathtaking panoramic views. On your way back to Sorrento, you will pass Punta Carena and its historic lighthouse.

FAQ - Blue Grotto Tour From Sorrento

How do I get from Sorrento to the Blue Grotto?

The famous Blue Grotto is situated on the cliffs of the island of Capri. You can either catch a ferry or a hydrofoil from Sorrento to Capri, go to a local bus, taxi, or a funicular station to reach Anacapri and then the Blue Grotto, or simply relax with a boat tour. An organized Blue Grotto Tour from Sorrento manages all the logistics, allowing you to simply enjoy the views and swim in the crystal-clear waters along the way. If you're more interested in the island itself than in visiting the Blue Grotto, join a Capri Boat Tour From Sorrento and treat yourself to more time wandering the island while still exploring the natural attractions along the coast.

Is it worth it to see the Blue Grotto?

Definitely! The Blue Grotto is considered a must-see natural attraction by many visitors, mostly for its famous blue light inside the cave. However, the entrance and the interior of the cave are quite narrow, allowing a limited number of traditional rowboats to be inside at the same time, which sometimes results in crowds and long wait times in front. To maximize your exploration of Capri wonders, make sure to leave early and avoid the long queues in front of the cave. The morning light sparks a unique play of blue lights, creating a magical atmosphere you can admire without too many people around you.
