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.

    Fantastic tour! Super friendly crew and great route. The first beach was relatively empty and great for swimming. The Blue Lagoon is always overcrowded, but the sailing boat docked in a relatively deserted corner. There was the possibility of getting into the water with a ladder from the boat or jumping down the front. This meant that you could always stay with the sailboat and swim there, which was especially good with the blue lagoon if you wanted to avoid the crowds. A three-minute walk from the boat dock at the blue lagoon had a wonderful view of the bay. In addition, the boat passed many interesting caves and we were told about the history of the island. There was also delicious food and drink on board at a good price. Overall, we are very happy to have decided on this tour. The atmosphere was very relaxed. You could sit down or lie down. Conclusion: absolutely recommendable!

    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.
