Super day.. great value for money.. lunch was in a local restaurant and lovely. Swimming at the Blue Lagoon … overall .. great value for money, fun, well organised and returned home suitably tired

What a great experience! Loved the entire set up. The crew was very friendly and I enjoyed the food and stops we made! I would recommend the sunset trip over the daytime trip.

Wonderful day. Disembarked in Comino at both the Blue Lagoon and then the Crystal Lagoon with a great view of Comino along the way. A fantastic day with true natural beauty.

The best crew, cold pint beer, Nice música and great vibe! You should try the trip in the morning and in the afternoon as well! One of the best trip I did in Malta!

Great Day!!! You can’t leave Malta without going to Comino and Gozo.
