Full description

After boarding the catamaran, the first stop will be the Blue Lagoon. The boat will drop anchor away from the crowds, so you can experience the famous turquoise water in peace. During this stop, you can enjoy an optional barbecue. The stops after the Blue Lagoon will depend on the weather. It might be possible to head to the Crystal Lagoon, surrounded by steep dramatic cliffs. Its crystal clear waters are much deeper than the Blue Lagoon, making the area fantastic for snorkeling and swimming in and around the caves. If there is an easterly wind, it’s likely that you’ll visit Ghajn Tuffieha. This is a beautiful rural area, home to a chain of pristine sandy beaches called Golden Bay, Riviera Beach, and Gnejna Bay.

On the way back from Ghajn Tuffieha, an additional stop will be made to discover the film set of Popeye’s Village, tucked away in a charming bay. Other stops that might be made are Mellieha Bay, Ramla Bay, Imgiebah Bay, or Half Rock.

All of these locations are great for snorkeling 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.

We loved this trip and feel that, despite being more expensive than other boat trips, it was well worth the money. The boat was lovely and clean and yes, it was quite packed but we followed advice of others and arrived early and got a great spot on the top deck. The beer was cheap and while I can't comment on the BBQ as we didn't opt for it, the food looked and smelled amazing. The staff on board were super friendly too. Overall, we had an excellent day and would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a chilled day on a boat.

Loved every minute of it !! Even though there were a lot of people on board you still had you’re own space ! The views were stunning and the swimming was amazing. Just a heads up, they dock at the blue lagoon and you can’t get off the boat on to comino you can only swim, which in my opinion was a lot better considering how crazy busy comino gets
