A great day out on an amazing catamaran with a great crew that really look after us. We stopped off at 3 great please for swimming and snorkelling and had a great BBQ on board We where out for for the full 6 hours and at €50 per adult was great value

Very nice trip to see the most famous islands of Malta and the Blue Lagoon. Different options available on board, so you can manage the time and activities of your trip.

Great crew. You get what you paid for and a great vibe. If you willing to pay a little more for being surrounded by less people, this is for you.

Brilliant day out. Only negative is that the time in Gozo was too short...probably needs to be done separately on its own

Lots of fun! The staff was amazing and the trip was great. Make sure to arrive early if you want a good seat!
