What To Expect

Manoel Island
Fort Manoel is a star fort on Manoel Island in Gżira, Malta. It was built in the 18th century by the Order of Saint John, during the reign of Grand Master António Manoel de Vilhena, after whom it is named. Fort Manoel is located to the north west of Valletta, and commands Marsamxett Harbour and the anchorage of Sliema Creek. The fort is an example of Baroque architecture, and it was designed with both functionality and aesthetics in mind.

Fort St. Elmo
Fort Saint Elmo (Maltese: Forti Sant'Iermu) is a star fort in Valletta, Malta. It stands on the seaward shore of the Sciberras Peninsula that divides Marsamxett Harbour from Grand Harbour, and commands the entrances to both harbours along with Fort Tigné and Fort Ricasoli. It is best known for its role in the Great Siege of Malta of 1565.

Valletta is the Capital City of Malta which is noted for its fortifications, consisting of bastions, curtains and cavaliers, along with the beauty of its Baroque palaces, gardens and churches. It's a must to visit the Capital, but it's also a must to admire the City from the sea aboard a fully air-conditioned catamaran with live commentary.

Fort St Angelo
Fort St. Angelo is a bastioned fort in Birgu, Malta, located at the centre of the Grand Harbour. It was originally built in the medieval period as a castle called the Castrum Maris. It was rebuilt by the Order of Saint John as a bastioned fort called Fort Saint Angelo between the 1530s and the 1560s, and it is best known for its role as the Order's headquarters during the Great Siege of Malta of 1565. A major reconstruction to designs of Carlos de Grunenbergh took place in the 1690s, giving the fort its current appearance. Admire the beauty of Fort St Angelo aboard our fully air-conditioned catamaran with live commentary.

Three Cities
Vittoriosa, Senglea and Cospicua, known as the Three Cities of Malta, are pieces of living history kept alive by hundreds of years of preservation, and the occasional miracle. The fortified cities sit like a trio of villages in the heart of Malta's historic centre, directly across the Grand Harbour from Valletta. Admire the Three Cities aboard our fully air-conditioned catamarans with live commentary.

Grand Harbour
The harbour mouth faces north east and is bounded to the north by Saint Elmo Point and further sheltered by an isolated breakwater and is bounded to the south by Ricasoli Point. Its north west shore is formed by the Sciberras peninsula, which is largely covered by the city of Valletta and its suburb Floriana. This peninsula also divides Grand Harbour from a second parallel natural harbour, Marsamxett Harbour. The main waterway of Grand Harbour continues inland almost to Marsa. The southeastern shore of the harbour is formed by a number of inlets and headlands, principally Rinella Creek, Kalkara Creek, Dockyard Creek, and French Creek, which are covered by Kalkara and the Three Cities: Cospicua, Vittoriosa, and Senglea. The harbour has been described as Malta's greatest geographic asset.

Fantastic Day

Fantastic trip, friendly crew who knew their history and facts of the trip. It was good value for money.
A Fantastic Cruise of The Harbours
Michael W, 24-09-2022
The Harbour Cruise Was included when we booked a 6 days iSeeMalta Pass. We took the iSeeMalta Bus from St Julian.s to Sliema Ferries. Shortly after we boarded the Harbour Cruise began it was a nice day as we made our way away from Sliema.
We then followed the coastline and made our way in and out of Marinas & Bays, then around Valletta.s coastline and in and out of Valletta's Ports and bays the views here were amazing Valletta.s Fortifications are truly stunning and many of the yachts, cruise ships and huge cargo ships were huge. This was an excellent cruise and was well worth the money.
Enjoyable and interesting

Very pleasant experience on iSee Malta today. We went with our two young boys for a Harbour Cruise tour and we all had a wonderful time. The tour itself was really interesting and the views of the cities from the harbours were magnificent. The boat was super clean, including the toilets. The staff were pleasant and helpful. It was a morning well spent.
Nice classical harbour cruise

Classical harbour cruise. The Sound onboard from the speakers could have been more clear and louder but Overall a nice experience.
Lovely cruise ; sound needs improvement
Patricia D, 28-09-2022
The narrator spoke so quickly and the sounds on the boat made it difficult to hear and understand. I loved getting pictures, but I wanted to hear the informATION
IT WAS ALSO DIFFICULT GETTING INFORMATION ABOUT THE BOAT LOCATION AND PARKING. The boat travelled the area indicated and offered the option to get off at Kalkara and rejoin the next boat. I enjoyed this option.
