Guide to Renting a Boat on Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast

All you need to know about choosing a boat on Sorrento

Do you want to visit Capri or the Amalfi Coast from Sorrento? An unforgettable way to experience these beautiful coastlines is by booking a boat tour, especially if you are here between June and September when the area is hot and crowded.

You can savor breathtaking views of the coast and drop anchor for a swim from your private boat. Once you have reached Capri, Positano or Amalfi, you can dock for a few hours and take a walk around the center of town. You can rent a boat privately for you and your family or friends either with or without a skipper, or join a group tour.

FAQ - Frequently asked questions

Where should I rent or charter a boat in Sorrento?

The main ports where there are boat rental companies are Sorrento, Piano di Sorrento, and Massa Lubrense. In these towns, you can find many boat rental and boat charter companies.

Do I need a boating license to rent a boat without a skipper?

For boats with smaller engines (which include most types of boats available for rent in and near Sorrento), a boating license is not required. However, it's best to have had a bit of experience at sea before attempting to navigate by yourself.

I want to take a boat tour to Capri but I don't want to share the boat with other passengers...but a private boat tour is too expensive! What are my options?

You can take the public ferry to Capri and from there book a boat tour around the island. Prices for a private boat tour of Capri cost around EUR 140.

How long in advance to I need to book a tour, boat rental or Sorrento private boat hire?

In the summer (July and August), you should reserve as far in advance as possible...especially for weekend dates. Otherwise, a few days ahead of time is enough.

What are organized group tours?

These are tours for small groups (usually 12) on board a traditional wooden "gozzo" boat with a sundeck and small cabin. The price of this tour is quoted per passenger, and these are usually the best choice for quality/price. You can dock to visit the coastal towns, and the price generally includes beverages and a sandwich.

How long does the boat trip take between Sorrento and Capri?

With an average sized boat, it takes a bit more than one hour.

Is it more convenient to travel to Capri by public ferry or boat tour?

In high season (from mid-June to the beginning of September), we recommend booking a boat tour to escape the heat and crowds. The cost of a day on Capri, including ferry tickets, a light lunch and a boat tour of the island, is about the same as a group boat tour.
