Families and couples will want to rent a boat for a week to soak in the Amalfi Coast at a comfortable pace. Here is our suggested Amalfi coast sailing tour. Starting from the beautiful marina of Salerno, you can set sail on your adventure, hugging the coast and stopping at Sorrento, through picturesque fishing villages and impressive coastal cliff landscapes. Next, it's best to sail to the small island of Procida, famed for its lemon groves and tranquil beaches. Next, Ischia — the largest island in the Bay of Naples — offers a more bustling feel, with fantastic seafood restaurants and rocky outcrops you can explore by foot. From here, Capri would be the next best port town and an ideal place to watch the superyachts sail in. It's steady sailing now back to Salerno. But first, you'll stop over at famous Amalfi, a luxury resort dating back to Roman times and a vibrant last stop before returning full circle.
If your trip is shorter, why not start your Amalfi coast boat rental for a full day. Boats from Amalfi to Positano are highly recommended so you can see the best sloping city.
Of course you can also choose the type of boat that best suits your needs to travel this wonderful stretch of the Tyrrhenian Coast.
You can rent a wide variety of vessels from an extensive and well-maintained fleet at many of the suggested port towns above. Although a week-long charter with a skipper is ideal, daily excursions also offer a unique experience of the Amalfi Coast only available by boat. We recommend renting a motorboat
if you want to sail the coasts of the many villages easily and quickly. If you are a lover of the sea and you are looking for an authentic nautical experience, we recommend renting a sailboat.
