Malta: Comino, Blue Lagoon, and Caves Day Trip

1. Malta: Comino, Blue Lagoon, and Caves Day Trip

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.

What people are saying about Santa Maria Caves

It was the highlight of the vacation. The crew is very friendly and cool. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed it very much. On the ship, looking at the other commercial ships that are fully overcrowded, one is happy to have chosen this extraordinary sailing ship. It is possible to book the speedboat on the ship, which I highly recommend.

Very nice boat tour, definitely take the speed boat tour directly on the ship. This goes into the caves and is very worth seeing. Don't forget sunscreen and hat on sunny days. The water is very clear and invites you to snorkel. Which we unfortunately don't have with.

A wonderfully relaxed trip that keeps everything it promises according to the description, super nice captain, great team, very friendly, drinks and good food (freshly cooked) at affordable prices, be sure to book the speedboat tour

Very nice captain and crew! Magnificent ride! The breaks at Santa Maria and Blue Lagon are superb! Do not hesitate to also take the optional SpeedBoat (10th, when boarding) to go see the caves of Comino Thank you for a great day

Owen is a great captain and his crew at the top! Excellent day I recommend!
