My family and I booked on Salboat to celebrate my mum's 70th birthday with a trip to Capri. We are so glad we did! From start to finish we had the best day ever. We had 3 hours in Capri then got back on the boat for a sail around Capri. We then stopped for an amazing homemade lunch. Sal and hid dad went out of their way to make my mum's birthday special. They decorated the boat, put candles on the cake and sang Happy Birthday!! BIG BIG thankyou Sal and family for making it a day to remember.

Me and my fiancée recently went on this trip,sailed from Sorrento over to the isle of capri and was given a choice either to spend time on the isle of Capri for a few hours or go fishing.We chose to stay on board and do some fishing,we left the port of Capri and sailed round to a spot where Sal and Franco let their line fishing equipment off the boat and sailed on to a spot that looked good for fishing with Sal using the sonar,All the equipment was given to us and the bait and we spent a few hours fishing (which I hadn’t done since a kid), and I did manage to catch one phew! I would never have lived it down if I hadn’t.After we went back to the port of Capri to collect the people who had got off,And then set sail again round the isle of Capri with Sal giving us some knowledge and information about different buildings,monuments,history,and places of interest.We stopped of for a swim and lunch (which most of the lunch is homemade and very nice and especially the homemade cake and limoncello) before carrying on around Capri,and back to the spot where Sal had left his line to retrieve his catch.All in all had a great day must apologise to Sal and Franco for losing part of my reel but they made no fuss and set me back up again so I was back in business again fishing.

Great trip,Great hosts,and felt good to be supporting local people.

Sal and his family do a wonderful job giving a great tour and making everyone feel like family! Very knowledgeable of the area. His mother does the cooking, which is from their family’s garden. Very family friendly and they were so good with the kids. Highly recommend to anyone, any age.
