Malta: Comino, Blue Lagoon, and Caves Day Trip

1. Malta: Comino, Blue Lagoon, and Caves Day Trip

Cruise in style and comfort on a luxurious sailboat on a full-day trip from Bugibba at 10:30 AM (boarding closes at 10:00). After morning departure from the Bugibba Jetty, you’ll head off towards Gozo and the Blue Lagoon. On your way, cruise along St. Paul’s Island, viewing the sites of nearly 2,000 year old shipwrecks, as well as the Smuggler’s Cove, famed as a location for diving. Your first stop is the Santa Maria Bay, a secluded bay on the island of Comino. Drop anchor and relax for 1.5 hours, with the option for some snorkeling, swimming, or simply sunbathing on the boat’s deck. Afterwards, it’s off towards Comino’s famous Blue Lagoon. With its crystal-clear, azure waters and volcanic rock formations, the Blue Lagoon is one of Malta’s natural treasures. With 2.5 hours to spend at the lagoon, head on to the beach, snorkel among the coral reefs, or take some time to explore the island — it’s up to you. If you’re feeling peckish or thirsty, grab a drink or bite to eat from the boat’s snack bar as you cruise back towards Bugibba, marveling at the sights you pass, like the Santa Maria Cave, Elephant Rock, and the Crystal Lagoon. You’ll arrive back at around 5:30 PM, just in time to reflect on your day over dinner.

Had such a good time! We were looking for something smaller that wasn’t a party boat and found exactly what we were looking for. The crew was friendly and super informative and they took us to the less-touristy/crowded parts of the blue lagoon & other spots so we were able to enjoy and swim freely without being cramped. Highly recommend.

We had a wonderful experience. The captain was very friendly and kind. The gullet is a beautiful traditional boat in immaculate condition. The atmosphere was friendly, very relaxed and safe. The food on board was fresh, perfect and excellent value. I would highly recommend this experience. It was very good value for money.

Es la segunda vez que hago la ruta, ya que el capitán es muy agradable y la ruta está muy bien organizada y distribuida de tiempo.

Thank you so much Matthew and Juju! A super team , I had a wonderful day . The cruise is perfect and we see wonderful landscapes.
