Full description

Join the captain and their crew on an unforgettable boat cruise visiting the islands of Comino and Gozo. Starting from the Bugibba Jetty, cruise past the northern coast of Malta close enough to snap amazing pictures of its high rocky cliffs, coves, naturally formed rock formations, and caves.

Pass by historical landmarks such as the islands of St. Pauls and the huge statue of St. Pauls that was shipwrecked in Malta in 60A.D. Enter into the Ahrax and Santa Maria caves stopping as close as possible to get some incredible shots. Throughout the journey, captain Kevin will be making a live commentary about all the sites, including some historic and cultural information.

Then, enjoy a 1.5-hour stop in the famous Blue Lagoon, the place that some have described as paradise. With its silky white sand and crystal clear waters it is impossible to resist a dip here. Swim, slide or jump into the unbelievably clear water or walk off the boat to the beach.

During your time on Comino Island, remain on the boat and use its many facilities. Sunbathe on the upper sun deck, chill out in the shady seats on the main deck, make use of the 10-meter slide, or walk off the boat to the small sandy beach.

After the time in Comino, sail towards the island of Gozo. Enjoy 3 hours of free time to explore the island. Take the local bus or pay on the day for a convenient transfer to Victoria, the capital city of Gozo, and a second stop at Xlendi bay. After 3 hours on Gozo make your way back to the harbor and continue the cruise back to Malta through the south channel of Comino. Pass by the Crystal Lagoon, sea caves, and St. Mary's tower before returning to Malta.

Everything was very well organized and clear. Imported information was reminded before everything stop. The only negative thing I could say about the whole trip was not enough time on Gozo, we paid extra 5€ for the bus which took us to two spots. They say you have 3h on Gozo but that includes bus journeys between stops and waiting for everyone to load and unload. Barley any time to actually enjoy the sites. We definitely felt rushed. Good if you just want to see places without wondering around and exploring. Very happy with blue lagoon, some jellyfish present so I would recommend a rash west or long sleeve for swimming.

Take the full day at Blue Lagoon if you want to really enjoy the beauties of the place and the water. We visited Gozo on our own, it was really nice but definitely plan ahead what you want to see. We ended up taking a long hike on the coast because we got a little lost. Can’t complain tho the view was amazing.

Had an amazing day. Would highly recommend. The blue lagoon was amazing, water like paradise...Nice, clear and warm. The sites to see in Gozo and all the history was amazing too. Fully enjoyed this trip for my daughters 18th and the staff made boarding the boat welcoming and quick. You will not be disappointed.
