Perfect way to cap off a trip to the Amalfi Coast. There is no better way to capture the beauty of the area than by sea, and trust me a ferry doesn’t do it justice. Beautiful and elegant boat, helpful captain and wonderful experience.
Easy rent, no problems at all. Nice and strong vessel. Would have appreciated to have the sound system connected - unfortunately it was not working for our particular boat. Anyway, I can recommend them!
We had a wonderful experience. Personalized to what we wanted. Very nice boat and skipper Vittorio!!
