Overview

We offer two tours. Both tours depart from the Bugibba Jetty Monday to Saturday at 10.30am to 5.30pm. Option A - Comino + Blue Lagoon + Caves: 20euro. This cruise is attractive for all you beach lovers and island explorers. We stop on Comino island in the Blue Lagoon for 4.5 hours. Paradise to the beach lovers you've seen the image of the stunning Blue Lagoon on enough postcards, its time to check out the real thing. An afternoon here provides ample time for swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing. You can enjoy the crystal clear waters by using our free snorkels aboard or the 10 meter water slide from the top deck. If you are not a swimmer or want to explore the untouched beauty of Comino, with its breathtaking views and old history, you can walk up to the St. Maria tower built in 1618 A.D., the St. Maria Battery, or the old church built in 1716 A.D and enjoy the wonderful views of Malta and Gozo from the cliffs of Comino. Option B - Comino + Blue Lagoon + Gozo + Caves 25euro. Do it all in one day. This trip includes a 3 hour stop in Gozo and 1.5 hours on Comino. During the 3 hour stop one can explore the Island of Gozo by using our organised minibus tours which will take you to see Dwejra, Fungus Rock, the inland Sea, stop at Ta' Pinu church, Citadel (the old fortified city), Victoria (the capital city) and bypass Xewkija church.

You can have lunch on the boat or alternatively there are vendors on shore, the boat offers better value for money.
