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 skippers speak English; many speak French and Spanish, as well. They are all native to Capri, and are available for anything you may need during your sail.
Our boats are insured to cover damages to people, property, and animals.
