But how to choose the best one for your private tour? In this guide you’ll get some valuable tips to choose the perfect boat charter service for your needs.

Choose the right type of boat

The first thing to consider is the type of boat. Tour companies often use vessels designed for specific itineraries. However, numerous boat charter companies allow you to choose the type of boat you prefer: from the smallest ones to luxury yachts. The choice also depends on the number of passengers, the available budget, and the type of experience you want to live.


Motorboats are the ideal choice if you are looking for adventure and to explore different locations on the same day. The high speed that motorboats can reach allows to cover long distances in a short period of time.


A Gozzo is a typical Sorrentine boat in which the traditional fishing boat design meets the elegance and innovation of modern motorboats. Gozzos are ideal for small groups (6-8 people) that wish to explore the secret grottos and sea caves along the coast. 

Luxury yachts

For a five-star experience you need to choose luxury yachts that offer great comfort and services. These boats are perfect for exclusive, relaxing experiences on a very stable vessel.

Boat conditions

It is important to check the boat conditions to ensure that it is well-maintained. In order to avoid unpleasant surprises, we recommend choosing boat charter companies with positive reviews and proven reliability to check the quality of their service.

Read the services included
