Malta: Blue Lagoon, Beaches & Bays Trip by Catamaran

Malta: Blue Lagoon, Beaches & Bays Trip by Catamaran

We will stop in 2-3 different locations. The first stop will be the Blue Lagoon. The boat will drop anchor away from the crowds so that you can experience the famous turquoise water peacefully. The stops after the Blue Lagoon depend on the weather/sea conditions. A few of our possible stops are: 1. Crystal Lagoon, surrounded by steep, dramatic cliffs. Its crystal clear waters are much deeper than the Blue Lagoon, making the area fantastic for snorkelling and swimming in and around the caves. During this stop, you can enjoy an optional barbecue. 2. Anchor Bay to view the film set of Popeye’s Village, tucked away in a charming bay. Other stops that could be made include Mellieha Bay, Golden Bay, GHajn Tuffieha Bay, Ramla Bay, Imgiebah Bay, or Half Rock. All of these locations are great for snorkelling and swimming. Back on the boat, listen to dance music, and buy cocktails at the bar. If you have selected the afternoon option, relax and watch the sunset on the horizon. After a wonderful day at sea, begin the journey back to Bugibba.

Comino: Blue Lagoon, Crystal Lagoon, and Seacaves Tour

Comino: Blue Lagoon, Crystal Lagoon, and Seacaves Tour

Get out on the water on this cruise to the island of Comino and soak up the scenery of the island's north coast. Go to the Blue Lagoon to snorkel and swim, enter the caves of Crystal Lagoon, plunge in the crystal-clear waters from a slide, or simply soak up the sun on the boat's sun deck. After boarding your vessel, your journey to Comino Island will take approximately one hour. You will experience Malta from a beautiful vantage point from the open sea. You will cruise close to the coast, witnessing Malta’s magnificent naturally-formed coastline, including its enormous cliffs, rocky nooks, and crannies. You will soon pass the tiny Island of St. Paul’s, viewing the statue of the apostle Saint Paul which rises high into the sky. You will also visit magnificent sea caves, which will allow you the opportunity to take amazing photographs. You will soon stop for one hour at the stunning but lesser-known Crystal Lagoon (June-October in fair weather conditions only). It is fringed by steep cliffs and therefore accessed only by boats. With unbelievably clear water, it is perfect for swimming, snorkelling, and diving. You can plunge into its crystal clear waters from one of the three water slides or jump from the top deck if you dare. During the evening trip, you will stop for 2 hours in the Blue Lagoon and 30 mins in the Crystal Lagoon. After arriving at the Blue Lagoon, you will moor in the prime area. You can then use the boat as a base, utilising all the fantastic facilities, including a huge water slide and sundeck with cushioned sun loungers. You can spend the rest of the afternoon swimming from the boat or walking ashore to explore the tiny island. Comino is also worth a visit in winter and is ideal for walkers and photographers. With no urban areas or cars on the island, one can easily smell the scent of wild thyme and other herbs. With the day drawing to a close, you will cruise back to Bugibba Port, entering the Santa Maria pirate caves and viewing the “Elephants Head”.

From Bugibba: Blue Lagoon Afternoon Swim with Sunset Cruise

From Bugibba: Blue Lagoon Afternoon Swim with Sunset Cruise

Avoid the crowds and visit the Blue Lagoon later on during the day when the temperature’s have dropped a little. This excursion is perfect for those who want to snorkel, swim and splash around in the crystal clear shallow waters of the Blue Lagoon during the cooler period of the day. Enjoy the magical cyan colored waters of the Blue Lagoon, which are especially tempting in the late afternoon as the hot Mediterranean sun has been warming it all day long, resulting in the water temperature being very similar to the air temperature. Take advantage of the onboard water-slide and have some fun frolicking in the waters to escape the warm weather. Or if you’d rather relax, spend some time lounging on the boat with a drink on one of the many cushioned recliners. Finally on the way back to port, enjoy the rocking of the calm sea waves, admire the magnificent Mediterranean coastline, and marvel at the stunning sunset across the ocean, glistening over the waters and reflecting from the enormous Maltese cliffs.
