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 inside both Ahrax Cave and Santa Maria Cave. Throughout the journey, Kevin and his father, Captain Joe, 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 time, feel free to use all the facilities onboard 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.

The best cruise we ever been to. Super relaxing atmosphere on the boat, everything on time. Music was perfectly balanced to have a nice time with friends but also to talk to people without screaming. The slide and 2 jumping spots in addition to this perfect Blue Lagoon water made us sad, that we had "only" 4,5 hours on the Lagoon.

The tour was amazing, we enjoyed every second of it. The captain and his crew were very kind and welcoming. They told us information and fun details about the places we visited. We decided to go to Gozo for a bus tour and it was pleasant as well. The wind was very furious but other than that we enjoyed our day on the Hornblower, on the Blue Lagoon and on Gozo as well. Would 100% recommend this tour to anyone.

We laid on the top desk - sunbathing along the way. We got to the island of Comino and had the option to slide down or jump off the ship. This was a lot of fun. We were then given an option to buy a ticket for a speed boat with a friendly guide through the caves. This took 30 minutes. We had 3h 30 mins at the Blue Lagoon. We swam and sunbathes on the rocks (the beach was very tiny it fit around 20 people max). The water was so clear and beautiful. The views were excellent. It was overcrowded as we did go on a Sunday. 100% recommend. The cruise guide (married couple) were very informative and fun to be around.
