Halle-FREAKEN-lujah I can finally ✔️The Blue Grotto from my life’s bucketlist! They say 3rd times a charm and I agree!1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣ The other 2 times we attempted the trip in the last 10 years we were denied because the water and conditions were too rough and therefore dangerous. 🆘We set off all confidant and excited to have a quick tour of the Blue Grotto and the reality was very different.
We waited outside the blue grotto for almost 2 hours in windy bitterness desperately trying to flag down any row boater who would take a nice Euro bribe. 💶✖️✖️✖️✖️But NO ONE would take us up on our offer so alas we waited and waited wondering if we would ever make it in before they closed the grotto for the day because of high tide.🙍🏽🙍🏽🙍🏽🙍🏼🙍🏽👨🏻👨🏻👦🏼👎🏽
Finally when a row boater guy came over I basically threw myself overboard, 🙋🏽↩️🚣🏽so happy to see him and to claim our 4 person vessel! The entry into the grotto is only a few feet high and in order to enter safely we had to literally lay flat on our backs and glide through the mouth.
Once inside it was crystal clear to see what the fuss was all about.
The skipper rowed us around the grotto and sung us traditional Neopolitan folk songs 🚣🏽🇭🇺🎶which echoed off the rock walls and made for a unforgettable atmosphere.
The water was blue blue blue 🔵🔵🔵and crystal clear. Unfortunately we were only in there for 5 minutes.
Getting back out of the cave looked ominous for a few minutes as high waves crashed against the opening.
But we made it out safely and then headed back to Capri to explore. But first we were treated to a very colorful and inviting coastline!
Before boarding the boat back to Naples we stopped inside a little quaint shoe shop and had a little old man make us each a paid of custom sandals! 👴🏻🛠👡
Enjoy a 1 minute recap of the Blue Grotto Experience!
