  • Ischia and Procida boat tour from Sorrento

Your Mediterranean day trip begins with pick-up in central Sorrento, and your driver will bring you to the port where your comfortable speedboat will be waiting. Drinks and snacks will be served as you cruise across the Bay of Naples in style!

First you'll visit Ischia, known as “Green Island” for its lush vegetation. Your skipper will navigate around the caves, rock formations, swimming spots, and coastal sights of the island, before you have a few hours of free time to explore on land. Next it's on to charming little Procida, recently chosen as Italian Capital of Culture 2022, with some fascinating sights and gorgeous swimming beaches along the way, and you'll have free time to discover the island on foot.

Your full-day tour ends back at the Port of Sorrento, where a driver will be waiting to transport you back to Sorrento town.

  • Luxury boat tour of the Bay of Naples and Ischia & Procida coastlines

  • Expert local skipper and English-speaking trip leader

  • Swimming and snorkeling time (bring your own snorkel or buy onsite)

  • See the Green Grotto, Aragonese Castle, and more!

Morning Pickup from Amalfi

Your day begins at an easy meeting point in central Sorrento. Hop aboard a comfortable minivan for the short drive to the Port of Sorrento, where your boat will be waiting along with your English-speaking trip leader and skipper. This is where you can purchase snorkeling equipment if you don't have your own.

The boat holds a maximum of 14 people—a wonderful small group to explore the beautiful Bay of Naples. As you pull out of the marina, take in the amazing views of Sorrento and the surrounding cliffs before turning your eyes towards Ischia and Procida.

During the boat ride you'll see in the distance the small island of Nisida, the Phlegraean Fields, and all the way up to Capo Miseno, the furthest point of the Phlegrean peninsula.

The Green Island of Ischia

Upon arrival in Ischia, you'll first visit Maronti beach, the longest on the island at almost 3 km. Next, you'll stop at the Green Cave, an incredible natural cave carved into the rock, inside which the light creates a play of colors and shades of green as it reflects off the water. After a stop to swim and snorkel, you'll continue to the Aragonese Castle, a true symbol of the island. This majestic fortress stands on a huge rock, connected to the East side of the island by a bridge of 220 meters.

Your boat will dock the port of Ischia for 3 or 4 hours of free time to explore the island on your own. Enjoy a fresh seafood lunch in one of the village's authentic restaurants and enjoy views across the bay. You can even choose to travel around on one of Ischia's iconic three-wheeled microtaxis, a fun and unique way of touring Ischia and discover the main points of interest.

Lunch and taxi hire are not included, but your trip leader will be happy to give tips and recommendations for where to go and what to do on Ischia island.

Traditional Charms of Procida Island

The tour continues towards Procida. While sailing around the island, you'll stop to admire the islet of Vivara, Terra Murata with the former prison of Palazzo d’Avalos, the colorful houses of Marina di Corricella, and the beautiful bay of Chiaiozza. You'll also stop for a swim in one of the many bays along the coast.

In Procida, you will have 1 or 2 hours of free time to visit the island by land. Take a stroll through the cobbled streets and old world charms of Procida, and you'll discover why it became the first island to win Italian Capital of Culture in 2022!

Cruise Back to Sorrento

Finally, we will leave Procida and return to Sorrento. Along the way, your trip leader will bring out some local limoncello to celebrate a fantastic day in the Bay of Naples.

Upon return to the Port of Sorrento, the driver will take you back to the center of Sorrento where you can enjoy your evening.
