We booked a day cruise with Captain Morgan Cruises via our hotel rep at a cost of €50 for two including hotel pick up. It was doubtful whether the cruise would go ahead because of rough seas but on the day we were collected as planned from our hotel in Golden Bay. On arrival we boarded what appeared to be a boat owned by a different company, Extreme. The boat ride was very challenging, the boat was pitching and rolling so much no-one could stand! On the way to Comino we were told about the "speed boat" trips to the caves in the Blue Lagoon. We were told how we would be able to look over the side and see fantastic things below us in the water. This was in addition to the "spectacular " caves that we would be entering. On the strength of this we bought two tickets at €15 each. How disappointed we were to see the boat, which appeared to be a normal water taxi. There was just about enough room to get everyone on board but with a roof overhead and plastic "windows" it was difficult to see anything. In 20 minutes it was all over and we felt we had been missold this with a totally false description of what we would see. With hindsight we could have taken a local bus from our hotel and then taken a ferry to Gozo from where we could probably have booked a better trip to Comino. A lesson learned!
