Full description

Explore the beautiful Comino Island and the surroundings on a day tour by boat. Discover the Ahrax Cave, Santa Maria Cave, and other famous sights before swimming or snorkeling in the clear waters of the Blue Lagoon.

You will depart from the Bugibba Jetty and begin your cruise along the northern coast of Malta. Pass by all of the sights including St. Pauls Islands and the statue of St. Pauls, and Anthrax Point. Continue cruising through the north channel of Comino as you pass by the elephants' head, Santa Maria Bay, St. Nicholas Bay, and the Comino hotel.

Make quick stops to enter both Ahrax Cave and Santa Maria Cave. Throughout the journey, Captain Kevin will inform you about the sites and give you information regarding Malta. After approximately 1 hour, arrive on Comino island in the famous Blue Lagoon. The boat will moor up and you can enjoy a stop of 4.5 hours.

During the journey, feel free to use all the facilities on board the boat or get off and explore the island. Relax and sunbathe on the top deck or find some shade on the main deck. Take a refreshing plunge into the cool, crystal-clear water. 

Take advantage of male and female toilet facilities, lockers, and the cafeteria which serves hot and cold beverages. At the end of your time in Comino, head off to the island of Gozo without stopping. 

Cruise around the Mgarr Harbour and see more important sites from the boat. Return to Malta via the south channel of Comino, passing by Crystal Lagoon and its caves and St. Mary's tower.

Everything was amazing. A must to-do cruise in my opinion. You will have a great view on awesome caves, blue lagoon waters are dreamy, you will get to have the Captain narrating all the must-to-know details. Cruise offers you a great view of Comino islands, you can enjoy a great music and happy mood, grab a pineapple cocktail and enjoy the best time. Captain Kevin literally saved my trip in Malta by saving my phone that took a dive in blue lagoon waters.(I still own him for being so reliable and open to help asap although he has his break at the time. I own a huge thanks to the employee in the bar that took the phone and was super fast to help me dry my phone. I am super grateful to you guys. Thank you for the awesome cruise and for being so helpful and in such a great mood. You are the best!

Very nice trip! I highly recommend booking in advance and arriving there early in order to get a sunbed on the upper deck. The speed boat ride is not included in the price but it’s great fun and leads you into the caves so you can get better views of them.

It was the most beautiful experience of the whole trip to Malta. I really liked the island of Comino and the landscapes it hides and are waiting to be discovered. Those who wanted could swim in the blue lagoon or could go on fast boat to the nearby caves and explore. I would like to come back sometime.
