Amalfi: Sailing and Savoring the Gulf of Naples

Procida, Capri, Ischia, Ventotene and Amalfi Coast // Procida. Ischia, Ventotene, Ponza, Palmarola

Amalfi, the oldest Maritime Republic in Italy, ascends from history as rich and dramatic as the coastal cliffs behind it. We invite you to sail the ancient Mediterranean trade routes with us, to encounter this breathtaking region from the sea.

We’ll meander from cove to harbor on a private catamaran and sample the local luxuries of each port. Simple, fresh dishes are drawn from specialized agricultural traditions. Lemon groves flourish above each village. Surrounded by the sea, we focus on fish and folklore. We settle with ease into our captain’s expert handling of water and wind. Bring a book for quiet times. Play in the kitchen when we have something to teach you. Sprawl on the sun-bleached deck or dive into the sea as we anchor at each cove. Explore the islands on foot. Soak up local wisdom and our captain’s sea-faring stories. Suddenly: a sense of harmony. The relaxation is deep.

Enquire about booking the entire boat for your friends or family. We have a fleet of different sailboats and catamarans to choose from. A private itinerary can also be designed.
