My two teenage sons and I had a great day with Captain Sal and his father Frank. We were picked up by taxi and joined the Salboat at 9am in Marina Grande Sorrento. We crossed over to Capri, with Sal providing a running commentary on all the sights. We then fished off Capri for 3 hours and laid a long line with 200 hooks. The fish we caught with rods were small but at the end of the day we caught a lot on the long line, including a 5 foot Conger Eel! Sal was great with the kids and the adults on board and we ate a fantastic lunch prepared by his mama on the organic farm they own too. Snorkelling off Capri was great fun and the boys were delighted with their day!

One of the best parts of our trip to Italy was our day talking the SalBoat to Capri. Salvatore told us he wanted us to feel like we were part of the family, and we did. We ate delicious food cooked by Mama with vegetables from their family garden and drank limoncello that she had made. Whenever I said I enjoyed anything, Sal would say, "Oh, I'm happy." Why spend another day in a tourist machine, when you can support a local family and have an absolutely wonderful time?
