€2500 for full day boating outing on Amalfi coast?

Jump to last reply

Sooo... I don't even have my hotels in Rome booked yet, but this one day out on the water is the one to which I have looked forward forever! We are staying at a small villa five minutes from Sorrento in mid August, and although I researched companies such as Luccibello and Gennaro e Salvatore, I casually mentioned to the concierge at the hotel that I would love for her to get me some prices for some excursions. This is a very celebratory trip as it is my parents' 70th birthday year and my 11-year-old son's first time to Italy. This day on the water with a private boat and captain is my gift to them. I don't want to do ferries, or group tours etc. Just our family of five: my parents, my husband, my son, and myself. We had done something very similar out of St. John a few years ago. We spent the day exploring all the little islands in the BVIs. It was so unbelievably wonderful. Magical. I think I will enjoy it even more on the coast of Italy.

This is what my concierge sent back to me this morning. ( I realize there might be charges to dock in the towns. And of course there is the price of fuel which we actually paid separately and **after** our excursion in the Caribbean). What do you all think?


- " Private boat full day 8 hrs, five people, Amalfi, Capri, Positano, peninsula coast, stops for snorkelling, equipment included, welcome drinks, English speaking skipper, transport assurance, pick-up from/to Villa. € 2500
Please note that disembarkation in Amalfi and Capri will have an extra supplement of €50 each"

My dad loves a good bargain and is the type of guy who would walk around the "marinas" and try to find someone who would do it for much less. But I honestly don't want to take that chance. And I want someone who is a licensed skipper. Plus, he will never know what I paid anyway! It's my gift to him and my mom. Thankfully I'm in a position where I can afford to splurge like this, yet I consider myself something of a savvy shopper and I don't want to be ripped off.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Mille Grazie,
Lisa
