Flavio Palladino is a young man of Amalfi who has always had a passion for the sea, first as a hobby and then as a profession.
When he started a boat rental business in 1994, his speciality was to provide excursions along the Amalfi coast to the island of Li Galli, to Capri, and Ischia, and trips along the winding coast to admire the panorama that nature offers to the visitor on the Amalfi coast.
“To climb on board a boat whether large or small and breathe in the bracing sea air is the best way to visit the coast, to discover the maritime traditions and the centuries of local history.
Amalfi was the first Maritime Republic and a considerable economic force in the past, it was the population of Amalfi who laid down the first written naval laws (The Tavole Amalfitane of the X11 Century) that were in use for many centuries in the Mediterranean area.”
“The small fleet I offer to those wishing to take a sea trip along the Amalfi coast is made up of two completely different types of boats. The first is the “Ercole” to which I am particularly attached, it can take up to 60 persons on trips along the Amalfi coast and on to Capri. This boat offers me the chance to follow the chosen itinerary, and converse with my passengers who are always very interested in the many sights to be seen along the coast. The second boat is a new acquisition and shows off her 450 CV, with supreme elegance, giving clients a chance to taste the excitement of speed in a scenery that is unique in the world. I would not know which boat to choose, why not try both to remove any doubts you might have.
“The Amalfi coast and all her marvels merit your interest, without wishing to seem banal if asked to choose I would explain that one should not leave this paradise without having taken a voyage along the entire coast from east to west. A visit to world famous places: Positano, Sorrento, Li Galli island, Capri and Ischia… and the list continues.”
