We’re a family run smaller boat. The best thing about The Mermaid is you will leave your day out at sea with unique experience rather than beginning just a number. You will be personally greeted by the captain upon boarding. Since we’re a smaller boat we enter inside the caves at no extra charge. You’re able to view the caves & take pictures. We’re all about customer experience aboard the Mermaid and we will do our utmost to ensure you enjoy your day out at sea and make sure it’s the highlight of your holiday!

MUST DO on Malta
The trip was amazing! Because of the smaller size of the boat we‘ve been able to see a lot more things than usually! Driving along and inside the caves was my personal favorite. I would recommend to take a seat in the front if the weather is good.
And the crew was amazing. Always happy to give tips and background information. We would definitely do it again!
Excellent. Really good day out. We opted for the additional speed boat trip to the caves @€15 each which was well worth the money.
We had a great time onboard! It’s a lovely little boat and we got to see everything we wanted to, we especially enjoyed Comino!
The only negative is that it’s sold as 20 capacity but there was at least double the number of people onboard so it was a bit cramped with not much space which was disappointing as we booked it as it said maximum of 20 guests. We would still recommend this trip though!
Fantastic boat trip
Amazing little cruise and a fantastic value for money, we got a whole days trip for less than €15 euros each. The tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable and gave some little insight’s into some of the caves that were used in films.
Would recommend using these guys instead of a larger boat company as I feel their attention to detail would be much better.
Great experience in Comino Island
We spent an amazing day on the boat and with the team. Comino and Blue Lagoon were amazing and the water was perfect! Blue Lagoon is a bit crowded but there were the possibility to jump from the boat and enjoying the wonderful water from there.
We really enjoyed the tour in the caves.
We didn’t enjoy much Gozo because the buses were not running and we didn’t do much.
We found out in the morning that there was the possibility to stop at Blue Lagoon for more hours (not going to Gozo) maybe this is the best option!
