A tale of the sea
In 1826, a fisherman from Marina Grande accompanied the German painter August Kopisch to the Blue Grotto, which, at the time, was known only to the islanders. From that moment on, news of the extraordinary beauty of the sea cave began to spread around the world and more and more visitors coming to Capri asked to see the Blue Grotto and sail around the island by boat.
In 1955, the fishermen of Capri who organized these trips decided to found a company, which would enable them to offer a truly professional service to customers. Thus Motoscafisti di Capri was born.
All our sailors speak English, many speak French and Spanish too. They are all Capri born and bred and during your excursion will be able to give you all sorts of fascinating facts and insider information about the places you'll see along the way.
