A little pricey for what you get

I paid 13 Euro (maybe 12?) for about 5 minutes, but it was definitely enjoyable and beautiful! You have to lie down in the boat to clear the opening, but sit up once inside. When... read more

I paid 13 Euro (maybe 12?) for about 5 minutes, but it was definitely enjoyable and beautiful! You have to lie down in the boat to clear the opening, but sit up once inside. When your eyes adjust you see this luminous turquoise blue water that is stunning! And our guy managing the boat sang while inside the cave. :)... More

Our private boat took us to the green grotto, and told us to jump out and swim through it. We loved it! Refreshing swim in the heat of the day, relaxing and magical. Very serene! We did it twice.

The green grotto and the smaller lesser known grottos on the other side of Cpari are attractive and less rushed than the major Blue Grotto. Best reached by boat pick your day.

When in Capri hire a boat and do the trip around the island. See the Blue Grotto and swim the Green Grotto. Stunning.

This is one of the stops before the Green Grotta on the island tour. I'm unsure why it's called Green as the water appeared blue. Water was very clear and you can see the bottom. Amazing!

Absolutely beautiful. We actually swam in green grotto. I wouldn't have missed that experience in my life. Swimming in the open ocean. Amazinggggg. I recommend anyone to take a private boat tour. There is one call Capri sharks. Wendy and stephan. Perfect. Call em. Or look em on the net. They charged 150 euros for entire boat. They could manage... More

Took a boat trip whilst on Capri, boat reversed right inside this grotto and the water was brilliantly blue.Lots of orange coral at the waters edge was also in plain view, although you cannot collect as protected.

From Marina Piccola travelling with the boat to the west, we got to this gorgeous cave. In Italian called Grotta Verde this sea cave is a very popular site among the locals and tourists as well. In the difference from more popular Blue Grotto, this Grotto is not typically crowded. We looked with interest at the rugged coast and also... More
