    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.

    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.

  • Gozo: Jeep Safari & Comino with Buffet Lunch and Wine

    5. Gozo: Jeep Safari & Comino with Buffet Lunch and Wine

    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.

  • From Malta: Full-Day Quad Bike Tour of Gozo with Lunch

    6. From Malta: Full-Day Quad Bike Tour of Gozo with Lunch

    Get an adrenaline rush on a one-of-a-kind adventure tour for thrill seekers. Be taken to the beautiful island of Gozo by powerboat to avoid the queuing at the ferry terminal and experience it all from a different perspective. Ride around the island on a Quad Bike in the company of very experienced tour leaders. See all the highlights of the island, from the stunning viewpoint of the Qala Belvedere and the rugged landscapes of the Simar Valley and Ramla Valley. Go to Calypso Cave and the village of Marsalforn. See the Traditional Saltpans and drive through the Ghasri Valley. Discover the incredible Inland Sea of Dwejra and the small islet of Fungus Rock. Take a swimming break and get some time to shop. Then, take a powerboat back to Malta via the Blue Lagoon and Comino Caves.

    The full-day quad bike tour of Gozo was amazing!! The whole tour was organised to perfection: we have been picked up outside our hotel in Sliema, and dropped at the harbour to the boat to Gozo. We got to see most of Gozo, that's magical! I would definitely recommend it, especially if you are travelling between January and March, as the island is greener (but the sun is still shinning) and less tourists at this time of the year.

    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

  • Full-Day Cruise to Comino & Blue Lagoon with Food & Drinks

    10. Full-Day Cruise to Comino & Blue Lagoon with Food & Drinks

    This cruise has the simple aim of giving you the maximum amount of time to enjoy swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear waters of Comino's Blue Lagoon. When you want to relax, snacks, beverages and air-conditioning are available aboard the boat, where you can also sunbathe on the upper deck. The boat leaves the Sliema ferry dock at 10:30 AM and returns at 5:30 PM, which gives you 7 hours to enjoy the sun and sea however you want. The Blue Lagoon, between the small island of Comino and smaller islet of Cominotto, is a basin of clear, turquoise water with a white sandy bottom and abundant marine life. It's great for swimming and photos, but even better for snorkeling. Equipment is available onboard.

What people are saying about Malta

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!

Boat left on time. Upper deck was full when we arrived but that was okay because it’s hot up there. The day itself was very nice. Plenty of time for snorkeling, friendly crew.

Fantastic experience and excellent value for money. I would recommend bringing your own snorkelling gear as the one sold on the boat wasn’t the greatest quality.

one of the most enjoyable tours we've had. it offers amazing views, super time efficient and also very worth its price

Super friendly and helpful staff! I recommend it to everyone!
