Blue Grotto Question

I'm in Naples right now for the week!

I'm a party of one. Do they place me with other people or do I get rowed alone (which weirds me out)??

You will be crammed in like a Sardine with others in a small rowing boat for the few minutes inside the cave. Remember to have some change for the 'Tipp' so they will take you out.

I was there just 8 days ago - the row boats take 4 passengers each - 2 at each end with the oarsman standing in the centre - I am 187cm tall and wouldn't describe it as being crammed in like a sardine - as long as you lean back as you go inside, all is well; the oarsman asks for a tip but only expects it when he drops you back to the starting point - our one was fantastic - he sang inside the grotto, we did 4 laps (amongst 3 people swimming!) inside the cave and we thought a tip was well deserved - many others we spoke to were inside for about 3 minutes and refused to tip - fully up to you.

I think I'm going to just swim before or after the boats. Yes, I know you aren't supposed to do this. I'm alone so I just hope I'm not the only person in the water. This is Glenda. Sometimes my Tripadvisor account is using my Facebook account??
