Full description

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 Ahrax 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.

It was amazing day on the cruise with Hornblower! Great staff, good food, amazing places we visited! The slide, jumping of the boat, snorkeling. Definitely worth the money. Same price as 3 years back! Cocktails options, food options, lockers, enough sunbeds and chairs for a lot of people! Also snorkeling equipment avaiable to purchase on board. Great playlist! Amazing, thank you Hornblower!

Wow! The cruise, the crew & the overall experience were simply phenomenal! Hornblower was parked at the best place in the Blue Lagoon with plenty of room to swim; additionally, you could enjoy the ride to Gozo & back if you wanted to! I definitely recommend this experience - it was a highlight of my trip!

Amazing experience! The crew were friendly and knowledgeable, sharing facts and jokes along the journey, and spoke multiple languages. The boat was positioned in the perfect location, in a beautiful spot that allowed use of the slide and space to swim without the crowds. Whilst at the blue lagoon you can use the boat as a base with deckchairs and space on top deck. They play chill music and serve food and drinks - all at reasonable price, can even get a cocktail in a pineapple which makes for a great insta pic! If you want there are a limited number of lockers, a €10 deposit that you get back at the end. The boat first goes to the blue lagoon where you can take a speedboat ride for an additional fee (let the crew know and they arrange it). After some time at the blue lagoon the boat leaves for about 30 minutes to Gozo, this is to drop off the people who choose that option, however if you are only at the blue lagoon they are happy for you to come for the ride. Best day of our holiday!
