Taking a ferry from Capri to Ischia is a great way to get between the two islands off the Amalfi Coast when you are traveling in Italy.
Ferries on this route are run by Italian ferry companies called Alicost (formerly Alilauro) and Gescab. They run fast hydrofoils from one island to the other.
Ferries from Capri to Ischia run only from 1 April until the autumn (dates change each year), and even during the high season there are only a few ferry crossings a day in each direction. As such, make sure to plan your travel accordingly.
Alicost Ferries from Capri to Ischia
Alicost ferries leave from the Capri ferry port at 9:45am and 4:20pm. Return ferries from Ischia to Capri depart at 10:40am and 4:20pm, so taking the later ferry from Capri requires an overnight stay in Ischia.
Tickets for ferries from Capri to Ischia cost around 20.00 euros one-way for adults. You can buy ferry tickets online or at the ticket offices by the port in Capri.
Gescab Ferries from Capri to Ischia
Gescab ferries leave Capri at 9:40am. Return ferries from Ischia depart at 4:20pm, so it’s easy to take a day trip from Capri to Ischia.
Tickets for Gescab ferries from Capri to Ischia cost 18.30 euros one-way and 33.50 euros round-trip for adults. You can buy tickets online or at the Capri ticket offices.
Prices and schedules change annually, so make sure to check updated timetables before you travel to Italy.
