The small group
Fantastic day, Skipper Sando was excellent. Plenty of swim stops, a great lunch and Prosecco to top it off. A must to do when on the Amalfi Coast.

Stunning, postcard views - swimming in crystal clear water -- new friends -- food, drink,music, laughter!
The cruise of the Amalfi Coast with Captain Fabio was one of the highlights of our two week stay in Italy! He was so friendly and fun! Spent the morning slowly making our way from Positano to Amalfi with a couple of stops for swimming in the beautiful water. Snacks, drinks, laughter followed by lunch in Amalfi. Stunning scenery on the return trip to Positano in late afternoon. Not to be missed. Truly the best way to cap off our stay on the Amalfi coast. Highly recommend!
