What information do you need to enjoy a relaxing hassle-free day? This complete guide covers everything you need to know.

Why choosing a private boat tour?

 This is the first question you should ask yourself. The answer is quiet clear: private boat tours have a lot of advantages.

Privacy and Peace

The Amalfi Coast is a top destination for tourists from all over the world. It is very common to find yourself waiting in endless lines to enter public places or to catch crowded public means of transport. It is clear that the peace and intimacy of a private boat tour allow you to enjoy your Amalfi tour without additional stress.


Private tours offer bespoke experiences tailored to your specific needs. You can chat one on one with your skipper who will suggest the perfect itinerary according to your interests. This will allow you to spend more time enjoying your favorite activities: from snorkeling to exploring the hidden grottos of our coast. 

Additional services

Last but not least, there is the benefit of additional services that include aperitif, snorkeling kits, and sea towels and you can personalize by contacting the tour company directly.

Common mistakes to avoid

Organizing a private boat tour may seem easy to novices, but it is not rare to make some common mistakes. In order to avoid spoiling a relaxing day at sea, it is important to choose reputable and trustworthy companies. They play a crucial role for the success of tours. 
One of the most frequent mistakes that people make is to underestimate the services provided by carrying more things than necessary. This not only results in a waste of money but also in an unnecessary burden. It is useful to ask in advance what additional services are provided in order to know what you can avoid carrying with you.

Hats, solar creams, and sunglasses are among the essential accessories that are never provided. It is advisable to take them with you due to the extremely hot weather of our region. Do not forget your camera / smartphone to immortalize the most memorable moments of your day in Amalfi. 

Thinking that the skipper is there just for sailing is another common mistake. It is an incredible source of local history and curiosities, useful to discover this amazing land.

Even if taking stunning photos for your social media is one of your main targets, it is advisable to avoid wearing unnecessary accessories / clothing. It is better to opt for an outfit that do not restraint movements.
