We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Capri on August 22nd with Sebastiano (our captain) and Sergio (his mate). Both attended to our comfort throughout the trip (especially after the wind shifted in the afternoon and the seas became increasingly rough). Sebastiano manuvered our boat into several shoreline grottos to insure we could see the beauty of Capri from the Sea. When we return to Italy sometime in the future we would love to make the trip with Gianni's Boat with Sebastiano and Sergio again!
We hope that the sea will not transmit the same emotions that has been able to give to us. Leave a message in our guestbook to communicate your emotions.
I had such a good time on this tour back in October 2015 I plan to go again this coming October 2016. It started with a warm welcome by our captain. There is a little cafe on the marina where you can have a cappuccino and pastry while you wait for departure. It was obvious that the crew was splitting off the 20-30 year-olds who booked through their hostel like I did...this meant the older folks and kids were on the other boat. We (me American, 2 Scotsmen, 4 Australians and 2 Koren women) definitely appreciated them taking the time and effort so that everyone would have a good time. Then we stopped at a less crowded cove to swim and our host dove for squid and starfish for us to look at. The have floaties and snorkel gear to use as well. We were served, juice, soda and Italian beer and later the host's homemade limoncello. The lunch was simple, surprisingly the Caprese salad was not great but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. I recommend splitting the cost of an open-top, stretch cab up to the top (fits 6) where shopping and gelato or lemon granita are calling you. There was a little over an hour to shop, take photos and soak it all in before heading back down to the marina for the second half of the tour. Take the tiny bus back down, its cheap and quite an experience on those winding roads. There is more time to swim while in port. After the stop at Marina Piccola we were all pretty lazy but stopped once more to see the blue grotto. I suggest bringing a dry towel or change of clothes, as the sun sets we got pretty chilly in our wet swim suits. However the whole from of the boat is padded so laying out in the sun to dry off is possible. Can't wait to take this tour again!
Our experience with MBS charter was amazing. Our host, Sebastiano was hospitable, knowledgeable and extremely social. It was a great day made even more successful by our host. We went to Capri and had lunch and then had free time to ourselves before returning to the boat for some more swimming. Sebastiano is a very proficient skipper who made us feel safe and welcome. I would thoroughly recommend his charters.
This was a really excellent tour. the crew - especially Sebastiano who was fantastico- were helpful and courteous. The boat itself was stylish and comfortable. We had a good sandwich meal (included) in a little restaurant in Capri Marina Piccola, and then free time in Capri (we used it to get a bus up to the main square and have an ice cream). It wasn't possible for the boat to get into the Blue grotto due to tides/weather but we could swim off the boat (they had noodles and spare costumes and towels) and saw lots of other grottos too. Great local knowledge from the crew. Really excellent trip, worth every penny we paid for it. (From Tripadvisor)
Gebucht haben wir das an der Piazza Tasso am Stand vom "treno bianco". Die Kreuzfahrt war so wie beschrieben. Kosten angemessen für die Lesitung und Qualität und genau wie gebucht. Sebastiano der "Kapitän" kann zahlreiche Dinge entlang des Weges in gutem englisch erklären. Die Motoryacht war 1A. Gute Ausstattung und sauber. Es gibt kostenlose Getränke und auch einen Limoncello. Auf Capri ein Panini mit Mozzarella. Man kann hinten auf der Bank unter dem Sonnensegel sitzen oder auf dem Vorderschiff auf Polstern in der Sonne liegen und die Felsen enlang gleiten sehen. Von der Plattform hinten ins wareme Meer steigen, schwimmen und schnorcheln. Vor dem Einsteigen noch eine warme Dusche - wunderbar. Sebastiano geht auf individuelle Wünsche ein und lässt kein Gefühl der Hektik aufkommen. Er beherrscht sein Boot und kann nahe bis an die Felsen heransteuern. (From Tripadvisor)
