Amalfi Coast Water sports

I’m sure it will come as no surprise that the Amalfi Coast offers holidaymakers a wide selection of water sports to enjoy.

Scuba diving and snorkelling

The seas off the Amalfi Coast boast crystal clear waters which are perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving. We highly recommend that those holidaying in the area head out to explore what’s beneath the waters. One great option is an Amalfi Coast boat and snorkelling tour. Alternatively, a cheaper option is an Amalfi Coast kayak and snorkelling tour.

Those looking to try their hand at scuba diving or snorkelling could also head to the Villagio Nettuno. The diving school there offers PADI courses for beginners as well as a selection of wonderful dives for experienced divers. Whether you’re looking for a night dive, a wreck dive or even an underwater photography course, all are included in the wide number of courses on offer. Even children can take part in activities. The ‘Bubblemaker’ courses at the school cater for children aged 8 and older. Or, for those children looking to increase their diving experience, there is the ‘seal team’ course, offering diving training in a fun and safe environment whilst the children are tasked with fulfilling various aqua missions.


Kitesurfing is now also very popular in this area. Kanna Kitesurf is a company offering kitesurfing lessons in the area. They offer both private and group lessons for beginners as well as equipment hire for experienced kite surfers. When there you can also try your hand at wakeboarding, paddle boarding or windsurfing.


Windsurfing can also be enjoyed at Amalfi at the Praiano Windsurfing Club. Lessons are available for children aged 10 years and upwards as well as adults. The club also offers canoe hire, ideal for exploring along the Amalfi coastline and discovering those hidden coves and beaches. Waterskiing and wakeboarding are also on offer.

Jet Skiing

Another way to get around on the water is to hire a jet ski. There are a number of companies offering jet ski hire, among them Amalfi Boat Rental. For those that like to be out on the water but stay dry, this company also offer boat hire. You can hire a boat or dinghy with or without a skipper.

Amalfi Coast Boat Hire

Or, if you are simply looking to have an amazing day on the water, we recommend Amalfisails, a sailboats and motorboats charter company based in Amalfi on the Amalfi Coast. The company offers boat rentals, yacht charters and private water taxis to the island of Capri, Sorrento, Bay of Naples and the Amalfi Coast. They can also offer sightseeing boat trips complete with skipper as well as tours and cruises to the island of Capri. Their fleet ranges from a 6 metre dinghy all the way up to a 21 metre yacht. All the crew are fully qualified and speak English.
