Reviews

Worth it one day trip to Gozo and Comino
albertmK576SI, 23-09-2022
It was a nice experience, very friendly crew. Also this cruise is for the non swimmers because if you want you can still swim at the blue lagoon with a life vest (that is free)
I would definetly recommend!
Something you can’t miss out on in Malta!
ashvacas, 13-09-2022
It was one of our best days in Malta! Really recommend! The boat also has a fun slide, and you can walk around the Blue Lagoon where there are many food trucks and small beaches.
It is a must see when in Malta!

It was a really great experience, I recommend it to everyone!! The only room for improvement is the toilet (nothing too bad, just needs renovation). The hosts are amazing, the boat is great, everything is great, the best value for the money!!
Beautiful fun day at sea!

Really enjoyed our trip, the slide was fun too! Definitely worth doing. The water is crystal clear and it’s worth getting the pineapple cocktails (cash only), expensive but worth it.
Fantastic Fun Throughout

What a marvellous cruise this is, and so well organised. I understand these cruises are very popular and usually sell out. The whole day is a delight, from the cruise to the islands, to the exhilarating power boat trip to see the smaller islands and caves. Swimming off the boat is very safe, and great fun was had by all going into the water jumping from the boat, or going via a slide. The boat provides snacks and drinks, all reasonably priced. At the end of the day, we left on a real high. Fantastic value and fantastic fun. What's not to like.
