Owner description: The must-see attraction on Capri is the magical Blue Grotto, where visitors take a boat ride through a natural cavern that is filled with an ethereal and eerie light reflecting on the (very blue) water.

We travelled to Capri from Sorrento and got straight onto the boat next to us for the grotto, 18 euros each. You then arrive at the front and get into a rowing boat and pay 10 euros each for entrance. The entrance is about 75 cm high, it was nearing high tide! When we attempted to get out of the cave we got hit by two huge waves and literally soaked head to toe, be warned. The grotto is beautiful but you are literally in for 5 mins. The tower of the boat also expects a tip. Very expensive but depends on how much you want to see a beautiful grotto.

Very exciting and scenic boat tour round the island of Capri. Had a great group discount for five people.The very skilled captain was rather adventurous backing in into the caves so people get to touch the ceiling. The guide will point out to famous people's luxurious villas along the coast. Would definitely recommend it.

Capri is a very beautiful Island and a boat tour around the island is a must! One of the stops in the boat tour is a the blue grotto where you will have to switch to a very small boat in order to go in it. Inside the grotto the light reflecting on the blue sea water is just beautiful.

I go to Capri most summers, if you are new to the island, be VERY careful of who you book a boat trip with... especially the tourist boats that go to the blue grotto.
They are HECTIC! Totally overcrowded and so uncomfortable, nothing at all fun about them!
Then you get transferred to a small rowing boat to enter the grotto ( also totally overcrowded) I got hit on the head with an oar hard by the rower, since there are too many people for him to be able to manoeuvre ( sent my new €500 sunglasses to the ocean floor) he thought it was hilarious and then told everyone on the boat to tip him!
I would only ever do this privately in future.

This is a very popular tourist attraction and the lines can be long.
Go early and try to beat the lines. Even if you have to wait , the site is worth the wait. The water colors are just spectacular and the rock formations incredible.
