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.

Great evening on the water. The boat played music and had food and drinks available for a fair price. We got see elephant rock and the boat's nose entered into a large cave. The Blue Lagoon is amazing, once we arrived they set up a water slide. You can either slide or jump off the boat into the lagoon and you can swim or snorkel around. We also were able to walk around Comino and watch the sunset before returning to the boat

Le lagon bleu était exceptionnel ! La croisière était sympathique ! Nous sommes partis du port. En chemin vers Comino nous avons eu quelques points à contempler avec explications du capitaine. Ensuite nous arrivons à Comino. L’accès aux plages et au bateau se font à volonté. Bémol : Impossible de régler par carte bancaire (française) au point de restauration du bateau seulement par espèce et ça n’était aucunement précisé n’y annoncé ! Nous comptions là dessus ce qui fait que nous avons rapidement été embêtées. Le restaurateur n’était pas agréable du tout à ce sujet. De plus, le bateau repart pour une trentaine de minutes au cours de l’arrêt des 4h à Comino, déposer un groupe à gozo pour 3h. Ce qui est trop dommage car pendant ce laps de temps nous sommes contraints de rester sur la terre ferme ou de faire cette virée supplémentaire sur le bateau. Pour un certain supplément, il y a une virée en speed boat permettant de voir les caves de plus près. Le guide était adorable !

Really great, Hornblower is probably the best deal on this place. In any case, everything went well; compared to the other boats, we had a larger lagoon area for us and the best slide. Bring a mask and snorkel or at worst buy it in the boat (20 €) to watch the fish, which are not extraordinary but pretty and varied by 3m deep, it allows you to spend the 4.5 hours pleasantly once you have made 10 dives and 10 slides. The only downside to which Hornblower can do nothing: on the island, a smart guy sells pineapples with liqueur in the fruit. We found empty pineapples all over the rocks with the straws, it was ugly. If I was mayor of the island, I'd fire that salesman or have him pick up his customers' trash.
