The tour will start at the Positano pier*, where you will embark on a private experience to Li Galli Island, a small archipelago located between Positano and Capri.

On the way to reach the island you will notice the splendid bay of Fornillo with the two Saracen towers: the Torre Trasita and the Torre Clavel.

As you approach Li Galli island, you will be able to admire its rocky coast, crystal clear waters and vivid vegetation.

During the tour, you will have the opportunity to stop at some of the most beautiful places on the island, where you can take photos and videos, go for a swim or just relax and enjoy the breathtaking views from the sea.

Your captain will provide you with refreshments, including water, soft drinks, and snacks.

After two hours of exploring Li Galli Island from the sea, you will return to Positano, where you can continue to enjoy the rest of the day visiting this charming town or relaxing on one of its beautiful beaches.

*We also offer departures from Praiano to Marina di Praia or La Gavitella.

About Li Galli Island: 

This Island has a rich and fascinating history dating back to ancient times.
According to mythology, Li Galli Island was home to sirens who attempted to lure Odysseus with their enchanted songs, as described in Homer’s epic poem, the Odyssey.
Throughout history, Li Galli Island has been owned by various individuals and families.

In the 19th century, the island was bought by the German painter Otto Geleng, who built a villa there and invited various artists and intellectuals to stay with him, including the writer Norman Douglas and the composer Richard Wagner.
In 1988, Li Galli Island became the property of the Russian dancer Rudolf Nureyev, who built a splendid villa on it.
Nureyev spent many summers on the island, throwing lavish parties and entertaining guests from all over the world.
Today the Li Galli Island is privately owned, but can be admired through a boat tour starting from Positano or from other neighboring towns on the Amalfi Coast.
Thanks to its beauty and history, the island continues to attract visitors and inspire legends and myths.
