Explore the lush green island with a local captain
The island of Ischia is volcanic in origin, and is home to more than 100 thermal baths, as well as beautiful spa and resort towns. Much of the coastline is decorated with beaches set against the slopes of Monte Epomeo. Bypass the tourist crowds and take in the beautiful sights of beaches and mountains, while a local captain stops at various bays and lagoons for your party to swim. Enjoy some time on land as well where you will notice wine growing villages underneath vast volcanic slopes. Each excursion is customized based on what your group would like to do.
NOTE: If your group size is more or less than what this tour is designed for please send me a message by clicking on the 'Ask A Question' button on my profile and I can either create a customized tour for you or recommend one of our already Published tours. We can accommodate any number of group sizes.
The best part about this excursion is that I will show you the sights through the eyes of a local, completely bypassing the tourist crowds! Embark in the morning from Sorrento on your 32/38ft private speedboat and cruise directly across the Bay of Naples to the thermal island of Ischia, where you will see the most beautiful sites, stop to swim and enjoy some free time on the island.
Some of the highlights of this trip are:
- Mushroom Rock: A very famous local landmark in the shape of a huge mushroom sitting quietly in the sea on the south side of the island.
- Mount Epomeo: Standing 800 meters tall, this dormant volcano towers over the luscious green vegetation covering Ischia.
- Sant'Angelo: Stop for lunch and shopping in this beautifully quaint seaside village.
- Ischia Porto: Home to the main port of the island and the hub of luxury hotels and designer shopping.
- Forio: Home to Citara Beach, one of the most alluring beaches on the island, as well as Poseidon, a well known Thermal Park.
-Much, much more!

Estimated Local Cash Needed
200 euros - This depends on what you order at lunch, how much shopping, etc. There is no way for me to know exactly how much to ring because this depends on what/if you purchase, but restaurants and shops accept credit cards as well.
Lunch: I suggest stopping at a seaside restaurant for a local lunch. This is a culinary paradise in Italy with many delicious, family run restaurants.
I drive and accompany you on sea portion. Enjoy free time in a village of choice at your leisure but I will not be able to leave the boat.
