Ferry schedule for Sorrento - Positano - Amalfi Town

I know there is a link to the ferry schedule - but I can not figure out how to read it.

We will be in Massa Lubrense (arriving this Sunday). We would like to explore the Amalfi Coast via ferry.

Thanks for the link - most of the links on that page are broken.

I have found

I am still having trouble figuring out how to read it.

I have read here that there are "slow ferries" and "fast ferries" We would like to go from Sorrento to Positano to Amalfi spending time in both Positano and Amalfi (with a possible trip up to Ravello). Then take a late ferry back all the way to Sorrento. Is this possible?

I'm making the same trip a week later. In searching for the ferry schedule, I came up with this link:

Click the link for line ferries. Part is in English, but not the schedule.
It contains this line "- servizio giornaliero ogni 30 minuti dalle 9.00 alle 17.00 dal Molo Pennello". I'm guessing that means ferries every 30 minutes every day 9:00am-5:00pm?

Anyone speak Italian who can confirm this is correct?

I speak Italian and you have the correct translation.

I was in Sorrento, Capri and Positano two weeks ago -- and I thought I figured out the on-line ferry schedules in advance. I discovered that the more reliable thing to do is to go to the port and check the posted schedules. Eg. I was told in Sorrento that the scheduled ferry from Positano was not operating for the next 7 days, but when I arrived in Positano (by bus) I found that there was a convenient ferry for my return which I took (and was very glad I did.)

Does anybody know if the ferry service runs the whole year ? if not, when does it stop ? Thanks.
