Your skipper for the day
At the helm of the Partenopea, Salvatore is an island native, professional captain, and expert at the finding the most beautiful spots along the coast.
Salvatore has been working with Capri's boat tour companies since he was very young. After graduating from nautical school, he set sail with the merchant marine to become ship's captain before he was 30 years old. After a decade sailing the globe, he decided to return to his native island of Capri to spend his days on board the Partenopea, a traditional gozzo boat...closer to the sea he has always loved and to his beloved Martina!
