St Paul's Bay: Blue Lagoon, Beaches & Bays Trip by Catamaran
- Duration options: 5 - 6 hours
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 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. Borrow the snorkeling equipment and take a ...
It was lit. Get there an hour earlier to get deck chairs on top deck especially if you are a group of more than one (so you can sit together). Boat trip is worth it! (10 euro extra). Food on deck is a good price (cheeseburger 4 euros) and really decent.
Your tour begins from the tourist town of Bugibba, where your modern and stable catamaran departs on an unforgettable two-island cruise. From the open sea, you will experience Malta from a truly unique and beautiful vantage point. Cruise close to the coast whilst witnessing Malta’s magnificent naturally formed coastline, including its enormous cliffs, rocky nooks, and crannies. You will pass the tiny Island of St. Paul’s, viewing the statue of the apostle St. Paul as it rises high into the sky. You will also get to visit magnificent sea caves, allowing you the opportunity to take amazing photographs. In the morning (during high season), you will stop for 1 hour at the stunning Crystal Lagoon, a spot many tourists don't know about. The lagoon is fringed by steep cliffs and only accessible by boats. Witness the unbelievably clear water, perfect conditions for swimming, snorkeling, and div...
I will recommend it to my friends. The boat stopped on the best spots. Enough time to see Blue Lagoon, Gozo and Crystal Lagoon. I would recommend to have a guide tour in Gozo in the pack. It was worth the money. Perfect to see everything in one day. Mostly had young adult people, so for me was a plus traveling by myself.
After boarding the catamaran, the first stop will be the Blue Lagoon. The boat will drop anchor away from the crowds, so you can experience the famous turquoise water in peace. During this stop, you can enjoy an optional barbecue. The stops after the Blue Lagoon will depend on the weather. It might be possible to head to the Crystal Lagoon, surrounded by steep dramatic cliffs. Its crystal clear waters are much deeper than the Blue Lagoon, making the area fantastic for snorkeling and swimming in and around the caves. If there is an easterly wind, it’s likely that you’ll visit Ghajn Tuffieha. This is a beautiful rural area, home to a chain of pristine sandy beaches called Golden Bay, Riviera Beach, and Gnejna Bay.
On the way back from Ghajn Tuffieha, an additional stop will be made to discover the film set of Popeye’s Village, tucked away in a charming bay. Other stops ...
If anyone going Malta would definitely recommend sunset worth every penny...Great experience

You will cruise close to the coast, witnessing Malta’s magnificent naturally-formed coastline, including its enormous cliffs, rocky nooks, and crannies.

You will aso visit magnificent sea caves, which will allow you the opportunity to take amazing photographs. You will soon stop for one hour at the stunning but lesser-known Crystal Lagoon (June-October in fair weather conditions only). It is fringed by steep cliffs and therefore accessed only by boats. With unbelievably clear water, it is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and diving. You can take a plunge into its crystal clea...
It was a pleasant day. The blue lagoon is amazing. We spent 4 hours there and we had enough time to enjoy it. I recommend it!
Your combination tour begins with pickup from your hotel from where you will be taken to the Gozo Ferry for a 20-minute crossing from the island of Malta to Gozo. Once arriving in Gozo, your experience may start with either the jeep tour or the boat trip. Enjoy lunch between your activities. On the jeep tour venture to a high point to view the Three Islands of the Maltese Archipelago. Following that, you will drive through the valleys and back streets to discover the real island, as you pass through areas where no bus or taxi can pass. The advantage of the jeep is that you have a driver for every 5 to 6 people, allowing the trip to be very personal. As lunchtime approaches, it will be time to stop into a local restaurant for a freshly-prepared buffet lunch, all washed down by some chilled Gozo wine and local fruit. On your boat trip board your wonderful twin-masted schooner for a lovely...
Awesome cruise- so worth the little money spend.The ride with the already a bit old jeeps is very adventurous but it was also a lot of fun. I found the stops too short.The jeep driver and boat staff are nice.
Absorb spectacular views of the stunning Maltese coastline on a full-day cruise from the Bugibba Jetty. Soak in the beauty of the twinkling Mediterranean Sea as you cruise past Mellieha en route to Comino island. Discover the magic of the famous Blue Lagoon cave in Comino, and take a golden opportunity to swim, snorkel, and dive in the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean. Feel the adrenalin rush as you dive from the boat, and explore the idyllic landscape of Comino. Relax in comfort, as you enjoy the inclusive lunch and snacks onboard the boat. Make sure to have your camera at the ready as you sail through the beautiful Comino channel beside other incredible caves such as Giant Octopus cave, Open-Top Face Cave, and the Crystal Lagoon. Take a last dip in the blue waters beside the historic islands of St Pauls, before cruising back to Bugibba to take in the sunset.
The crew was friendly. The tour itself was very nice. The fact that the boat is smaller allowed us to get a closer look at some caves. Also, there is much less people then on most of other boats which makes it more comfortable.
Discover genuine Maltese charm and experience the true Malta as you cruise along the island's rugged coastline to reach Gozo and Comino Island. Your tour begins from the town of Bugibba, where your sailing boat will depart at 10:30 AM. Cruise past St. Paul's Island, Mellieha Bay, and Smuggler's Cove Cave on your way to Gozo. Upon arrival, disembark the boat and enjoy 3 hours of free time to explore the island. You may choose to take a minibus tour or simply stroll around, discovering the island's landmarks, such as caves and fishing villages, at your own pace. In the afternoon, head to Comino Island, where you can explore the island, swim near the boat or take a walk along one of the island's white sandy beaches. Head to the famous Blue Lagoon where you can snorkel in crystal-clear waters. Later, while cruising back to Bugibba, enter the Santa Maria caves and see the “Elephants Head”, ...
Enjoyed the experience on board the boat. El Capitan provided knowledge and places to see while travelling. Opted for the minibus tour of Gozo, which was fun and the driver also provided some local knowledge. Good experience and way to spend a day in Malta and swimming was a good time as well!
The tour departs at 11am from the touristic town of Bugibba and then sets sail for the stunning Blue Lagoon. On the open sea, experience Malta from a new vantage point and admire the views of the ocean and the island itself. As you cruise along the coast, witness Malta’s magnificent coastline, including enormous cliffs and crystal clear waters. On route to the lagoon, pass by the tiny St. Paul’s island and view the statue of the apostle Saint Paul, rising high into the sky. After about one hour of sailing, arrive at the lagoon and watch the captain drop the boat’s anchor into the stunning blue waters. Marvel at the incredibly crisp turquoise water that is clearer than a swimming pool and the perfect destination to cool off from the hot Maltese weather. The boat moors at the lagoon in a secluded and tranquil cove away from the crowds, it's the ideal location to swim and snorkel in the w...
Good trip, price was excellent. Crystal lagoon was the best part. Good time at the blue lagoon but a bit crowded. Overall we had a great time on the tour.
Cruise in style and comfort on a luxurious sailboat on a full-day trip from Bugibba at 10:30 AM. After morning departure from the Bugibba Jetty, you’ll head off towards Gozo and the Blue Lagoon. On your way, cruise along St. Paul’s Island, viewing the sites of nearly 2,000 year old shipwrecks, as well as the Smuggler’s Cove, famed as a location for diving. Your first stop is the Santa Maria Bay, a secluded bay on the island of Comino. Drop anchor and relax for 1.5 hours, with the option for some snorkeling, swimming, or simply sunbathing on the boat’s deck. Afterwards, it’s off towards Comino’s famous Blue Lagoon. With its crystal-clear, azure waters and volcanic rock formations, the Blue Lagoon is one of Malta’s natural treasures. With 2.5 hours to spend at the lagoon, head on to the beach, snorkel among the coral reefs, or take some time to explore the island — it’s up to you. If you...
I think it must start 60 or 45 minutes earlier. To experience the caves shall be 15 mins. More and will be better advertised as it is a stunning experience highly recommended As I think it is better to start earlier so automatically there will be more time ti stay at Commino
Avoid the crowds and visit the Blue Lagoon later on during the day when the temperature’s have dropped a little. This excursion is perfect for those who want to snorkel, swim and splash around in the crystal clear shallow waters of the Blue Lagoon during the cooler period of the day. Enjoy the magical cyan colored waters of the Blue Lagoon, which are especially tempting in the late afternoon as the hot Mediterranean sun has been warming it all day long, resulting in the water temperature being very similar to the air temperature. Take advantage of the onboard water-slide and have some fun frolicking in the waters to escape the warm weather. Or if you’d rather relax, spend some time lounging on the boat with a drink on one of the many cushioned recliners. Finally on the way back to port, enjoy the rocking of the calm sea waves, admire the magnificent Mediterranean coastline, and marvel ...
On the day of the cruise we were informed there was a change of boat. Initially we were disappointed as the one we were due to go on had a water slide. However the substitution was a catamaran, which proved far better. The advantage being we went to Popeye Village first then onto Crystal Lagoon prior to spending a couple of hours at Blue lagoon. We made a mistake by not buying the offered bbq. Had we purchased the food it would have made our time at the blue lagoon go quicker. Once the sunset we still had a good hour or so to sit on the boat waiting to go back.

new stylish boat (katamaran) with lots of sunbeds and seats (sun and shadow). friendly crew, nice drinks and cocktails for a fair price. BBQ (optional) was tasty & freshly prepared on board and a nice option after swimming.
Very enjoyable trip! Places we stopped for swimming and snorkelling were lovely. Plenty of fish to look at underwater! :) Friendly staff and a nice new boat - clean and comfortable.
Great tour!! Takes you to all the well known swimming spots. Definitely get the add on barbecue as you will get very hungry.
It really was a wonderful day! Me and my daughter enjoyed it very much. It is really recommended for everyone.
Brilliant day out. Enough time in each spot and lovely BBQ. Make sure you get there early to get a good spot.
