Sea tour Comino and Gozo

The day trip departs daily at 10:30 am and returns at 6:00 pm.

The catamaran has a glass bottom, diving boards, swim loaders, diving platform, shower, toilets, baby room, baby chair, children's play area, lockers, sun deck with loungers and air conditioning. The boat is wheelchair accessible. You can also buy food, drink and ice cream and rent snorkel gear.

The commentary on board is in English, French, German, Italian and Polish.

There are two-day trips and one snorkelling trip.

COMINO ISLAND CRYSTAL AND BLUE LAGOON
On this modern and stable catamaran, the journey to Comino Island takes around an hour. You will sail along the coast and see the beautiful Maltese coastline with all its cliffs and rocks.

You sail along the small St. Paul’s island and you can see the statue of Apostle Paul very well. A visit is made to beautiful sea caves.

Crystal lagoon
In the morning (during the high season) the catamaran stops for 1 hour in the beautiful, but less well-known Crystal Lagoon. It is surrounded by steep cliffs and is therefore only accessible via boats.

This crystal-clear water, it is perfect for snorkelling and diving. Go swimming, slide down the slide or jump from the top deck, swim in the caves. You can also enjoy great snorkelling here. But of course, you can also enjoy the sun on the sun deck.
Shipwreck
On the way to the Blue Lagoon, we stop at a shipwreck which you can see from one of the 26 underwater windows. The wreck is a German mine sweeper 50 meters long that lies on the seabed, 20 meters below sea level. The visibility of the shipwreck depends on the clarity of the seawater and the sunlight conditions.

For safety reasons, the wreck will not be stopped at if there are diving operations by third parties.

Blue lagoon
Mooring will take place at Blue Lagoon for a period of 4 hours. Use the boat as a base and make use of all its fantastic facilities. Enjoy the water and water facilities on board, sunbathe and enjoy the view or go ashore to explore the island of Comino. In the winter, Comino is ideal for walking and enjoying this car-free and non-urbanized area.

When the day comes to an end, the boat sails back to Buġibba, but sails to the pirate caves of Santa Maria and the "Elephants Head", an amazing rock formation.

GOZO & COMINO: CRYSTALS & BLUE LAGOON
In principle the route is the same as the "COMINO ISLAND CRYSTAL EN BLUE LAGOON" tour. Only you do not stay 4 hours in the Blue Lagoon but 1 hour and then continue to Gozo.

Gozo
Once docked on the island of Gozo you can visit this island for 3 hours. You can go your own way or, for a small fee, choose a walking tour of the island. The walking tour takes you to two locations.

The first is Victoria, the capital of Gozo. You can explore this beautiful city for an hour and get acquainted with a wealth of history that goes back to the Neolithic era. A visit to the Citadel with its narrow, winding streets is an absolute must.

The second location is the small picturesque fishing village of Xlendi in the southwest of the island of Gozo, with a charming bay surrounded by giant cliffs and dotted with small and large caves that you can explore. You can also enjoy the panoramic view from the top of the cliffs. You can also enjoy a number of souvenir shops, good restaurants, coffee bars and views

Miscellaneous
There is also a "MALTA SNORKELING TRIP WITH LUNCH". This is a 6-hour snorkelling excursion. The boat leaves at 9 a.m. On the day itself the captain will determine the route based on the weather conditions, so you can snorkel safely. A packed lunch is included in the price and drinks are provided throughout the day.

There is also a "Blue Lagoon Afternoon Sunset Cruise" The route of this boat trip can be compared to the Comino trip, but shorter. You stay mainly in the Blue Lagoon and you can enjoy the sunset on the way back.

Finally, there is INTERNATIONAL FIREWORKS FESTIVAL. Every year around the end of April the "Malta International Fireworks Festival" takes place in the Grand Harbour. Alternatively, you can enjoy this show from a unique location on the water.
