Malta: Comino, Blue Lagoon & Gozo - 2 Island Boat Cruise

1. Malta: Comino, Blue Lagoon & Gozo - 2 Island Boat Cruise

Join captain Kevin and his crew on an unforgettable boat cruise visiting the islands of Comino and Gozo. Starting from the Bugibba Jetty, cruise past the northern coast of Malta close enough to snap amazing pictures of its high rocky cliffs, coves, naturally formed rock formations, and caves. Pass by historical landmarks such as the islands of St. Pauls and the huge statue of St. Pauls that was shipwrecked in Malta in 60A.D. Enter into the Ahrax and Santa Maria caves stopping as close as possible to get some incredible shots. Throughout the journey, captain Kevin will be making a live commentary about all the sites, including some historic and cultural information. Then, enjoy a stop in the famous Blue Lagoon, the place that some have described as paradise. With its silky white sand and crystal clear waters it is impossible to resist a dip here. Swim, slide or jump into the unbelievable clear water or walk off the boat to the beach. During your time on Comino Island, remain on the boat and use its many facilities. Sunbathe on the upper sun deck, chill out in the shady seats on the main deck, make use of the 10-meter slide, or walk off the boat to the small sandy beach.

What people are saying about Mgarr

It was a great trip. We would definitely recommend getting the extra speedboat trip and gozo coach/bus ride when you're on board. We felt looked after by the staff and well informed of the itinerary. The drinks and snacks on offer we're pretty decent. Getting to the dock an hour ahead of departure might be an idea to secure the spot that you want on board, although we all switched seats quite often during the course of the trip, so don't worry if you don't get the position you want to begin with. If the temperature is in the 30s, you won't need "warm clothing" for the trip, but lots of Suncream :) Not sure how all the sun worshippers on top deck coped, I would have come away looking like a piece of crispy bacon by the end of the experience. The coach driver could have allowed people more time at the first drop off and not returned us to the port so early in Gozo - my only criticism.

I'm really glad I chose this provider, as the boat was smaller there were far less people on board. People on some of the bigger boats were nearly sitting on top of each other. I sat upstairs for most of the trip, where only 8 people were allowed to sit. The Blue Lagoon was a highlight, pretty busy as expected, but I thought it might be worse. An hour was plenty of time to take photos, get a drink and have a quick dip. Although the beach area itself is very small and there were heaps of jellyfish. Gozo was okay, not a lot to see. There was the option of getting the bus to Victoria, but I didn't do this as it would be a bit of a rush. Staff were friendly and the day ran on time. I'd definitely recommend adding this to your itinerary. It's a very cost effective way of seeing Malta.

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.

Beautiful day. The water is really beautiful. There is everything on site if you want to eat or drink.

Was a lovely day Swimming food and plenty of shade
