Full description
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’re feeling peckish or thirsty, grab a drink or bite to eat from the boat’s snack bar as you cruise back towards Bugibba, marveling at the sights you pass, like the Santa Maria Cave, Elephant Rock, and the Crystal Lagoon. You’ll arrive back at around 5:30 PM, just in time to reflect on your day over dinner.

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed this day trip. It was the highlight of our holiday - so lovely and relaxing, but also lots of fun. The Captain, Owen, was warm and friendly and personally greeted each person who came aboard. Owen also knew a lot of local history. Cushions were provided, as was snorkeling gear at no extra cost. Food and beverages were available to purchase and were surprisingly affordable. The other crew members were also friendly and always happy to provide help when needed. The boat itself was more beautiful (felt like a mini pirate shop) than some of the bigger boats running similar tours. Of course, Comino and the Blue Lagoon were just beautiful and we enjoyed snorkeling. We spent our time either sunbathing on the boat, or snorkeling/swimming in the sea. You can also jump off the boat into the sea if you're brave enough! All-in-all, a fantastic day for a really good price. I would highly recommend.

The sailing boat is docked in Buggiba bay. Communication was gfreat and helped you thoughout the whole process, he gave us enough time to make it to the boat before siling off ensuring that all his customers get a chance to get to the location. I would recommend this activity to anyone.

It was a great trip. Owen the Captain who doubles as a great caterer was amazing. Such a nice man who set the tone for everyone to have fun. He and the crew were so helpful in giving us cushions to lie down on. You have a great boat Owen and we couldn't have wished for a nicer day. I personally don't believe any other operator can match the comfort, foodand service you provided. Thanks for such a memorable day. Chris and Karen from NZ.
