It's about 5-10 min from the train station to the ferry. There will be tons of taxis waiting at the train station. You can find many boats around the Capri port.

Thank you, so no need to pre book a boat tour of Capri and Amalfi Coast?

I've been several times. The restaurant is OK. There is a very limited menu of simple food presented nicely. The hotel is one of the best on the island. Neither are particularly exciting IMO. The Amalfi coast has far superior hotels but no kosher.
Can you recommend any Marriott or Hilton hotels in the Amalfi coast?

I will be taking a train from Rome to Naples and need to get to my hotel to Capri. How far is the ferry from the Naples train station? Is it easy to find a taxi or Uber to get there or do I need to hire a driver to pick us up?
Can anyone recommend a boat tour of the Amalfi Coast and of the Capri Island? I will be there from Sunday-Tuesday.

Departure Napoli every morning 8:30 - Arrival Amalfi 10:30 - this is the Aliscafo - quickest

August is so overun by tourists and italians, that in Capri itself there's no space to walk….

I don't think so, I would book with cash at the port.

I don't think there are any. Amalfi is one of the most expensive places in the world.
