Just a transport

They overbook and when full simply drop you there. On our way back (Capri to Positano) we took a late ferry to compensate for the lost time and they didn't want to let us in. Very rude. Had to appeal to violence to get in. NEVER BOOK ON THIS ONE. Other ferry options are fine.

Never choose Gescab-Ferrys!
They Are expensive and they Are lying about their ferrys, departure times and prices! Paid the highest price for low quality ferrys which not existet to that time! Bought a ticket for 9:15 am, but the next ferry was only at 9:40 am!
The „speed“ ferry is only 5 minutes faster than the regular!
Told us, the latest ferry is booked out! They just kept them for other customers!!
Never again! Would always choose caremar, they are much cheaper and better!!

Capri has nothing to offer but very high end shopping, extortionate prices and a very confusing ferry system. We boarded the ferry and was dropped off at port 1, on our return, the exact same ferry was at port 1. We where told this wasn't our return ferry and our ferry was at port 10. The ferry at port 10 was totally different to the one we arrived on. We missed this ferry and had to pay £750 for a private boat to get us back to Sorrento. No signs, no boards a complete con.

We were trying to see if was possible to change our tickets for Capri for another day and without much explanation in return we got be worse treatment possible. Rude staff, unhelpful and ignorant. Ruined our mood for the entire day, so much attitude and basically kicked us out before being able to ask almost anything. For 40€ per person, I would definitely go to another company

In traveling from Sorrento to Capri, I suggest the hydrofoil boat, which takes approximately 20 minutes to get to Capri....as opposed to 50-55 minutes by ferry.
A couple of tips:
1. when you get to the port, there is "controlled chaos" between the lines for the ferry and the hydrofoil. Ferry tickets are sold on the upper section and hydrofoil on the lower level. Yes, you WILL stand in line for either. Once you get your ticket (it cost me 77 euro for two round trip tickets) and leave the ticket window, bear to your left and head up to the boarding area;
2. If it is a clear day, with a calm sea, try to sit up top in the open area; if the sea is choppy (even on a sunny day) you may want to sit inside because you may have a sea spray bath on the way to Capri;
3. When you get to Capri, don't be confused. This port area of souvenir shops is NOT Capri town. As you disembark and enter the port area, look to your left and you will see the arch with the word Funiculor (spelling?) lettered across it. Head there, buy your ticket (2 euro, I think) and head up to Capri town....it's a simple tram ride of a few minutes, and deposits you into the shopping area of Capri town.
Final note about the hydrofoil - don't expect it to be anything other than transportation...the attendants are less than charming, and there is a scramble for seating.
