The tour provider will happily take you on a trip to the blue grotto at 9am, but the guide will tell you that the blue light effect is much more spectacular in the afternoon when the opening in the rocks gets direct sunlight.

We went with Allesandro's. Great guide who spoke excellent English. Sun loungers are included in the price. Only went into one grotto as the others were closed but you get a good impression from the area. Clear water. Definitely worth it.

We took a boat excursion to go inside the blue grotto, which is a phenomenon. Sites include a light house, and a weather station. Interesting rock formations.
