We started early this morning to take a shuttle, then a ferry over to Marina Grande in Capri. Once there we hopped another smaller boat to tour the rest of the island ending at the Blue Grotto. The gorgeous blue color is due to the refraction of the sun off the white sand at the bottom.

I know what you’re thinking, on land traffic may slow during rush hour, but surely at sea it would be fine, right?  Wrong.

The entrance to the Blue Grotto is 1m high (3.28 feet.) You need to take a four person rowboat to enter. During high tide the dock was busy so we waited just over an hour on the tour boat before getting a rowboat. It was worth the wait.

After we were done touring we stopped for a quick bite on dry land before heading back (by boat) to Sorrento.
