Sublime experience!! Magical places on the blue lagoon, top bus to Gozo! Jumping off the boat into the lagoon with this turquoise water: Magic! Small downside: too many on the boat..

Was such a perfect day! The views of the blue lagoon were something out of a movie. You’re able to jump or slide into the lagoon, snorkels for sale/ deposit. The people on the boat were lovely and accommodating. The only downside I had was that you had to pay 10 euros for a life jacket- my partner couldn’t enjoy himself due to his ability to swim. I didn’t have enough for the life jacket due to paying for drinks, taxi, and food- and I pleaded for a jacket- which in my eyes should come under safety regulations. Also, if you get there early to get the top deck- you have to remove your stuff once leaving in Gozo- meaning there’s actually zero point of getting there early to secure a good seat. —— If I knew you had to PAY for a life jacket I would have gotten this first. Apart from that, it was a beautiful day. I would go again, Just make sure I had plenty of cash. Ps- take the bus ride for €5/10 euro- cause where you get dropped off there isn’t much to see.

Pleasant boat ride between Comino and Gozo. I would have allowed a little more time spent in the capital Victoria. Pleasant entertainment from Kevin with interesting explanations regarding the various stages. Advised!

Excellent day! The instructions to find the boat were clear and everything ran to time. Food and drink on the boat were well priced. If you have the time I’d definitely recommend a full day at the blue lagoon it was gorgeous and 1 hour wasn’t enough. If you’re going to Gozo it’s definitely worth the €5 extra for the bus. The boat was very busy, if you want a bed on the upper deck you’ll have to get there about an hour early. You can also leave things on the boat too which is great if you don’t want to take your towel around Gozo There is a wind when the boat is moving so bring layers even if it’s just a shirt. Lots of people ended up wrapping their towel around themselves. The staff were also there at photo stops to take pictures of you with the backgrounds.

Punctuality and organization. I especially recommend an additional motorboat trip - great views and a great helmsman😊. And it's worth renting a bus to take you around Gozo.

Can’t fault the cruise at all. It was fantastic value for money, the tour guide was brilliant, and you get so much fun and time for your money. I’d also recommend going for the 5 Euro bus ticket - you get to places much sooner and it takes a lot of hassle out of it for just an extra 5 Euros. Thanks Kevin and everyone on board!

spectacular experience, kind and smiling staff, amazing cocktails!! all services were top!

They were very accommodating with the weather and instead of cancelling due to strong winds, they just changed the departure port. The boat was fine, food options were very limited. The captain was charismatic and played good music. Beware that the time in Gozo is very tight even with the direct private transport, we only managed to have lunch and briefly see the gardens next door.

The trip was very interesting. Chill music on boat and a good vibe with the captain and personal on board.

Excellent communication before the trip informing us of a change to departure point. The cruise its self was an amazing experience. Well worth the money.

Everything very organized and clear. The stages are of the right length. The speaker speaks both English and Italian. The shuttle service with an additional €5 to get to Rabat on Gozo is useful. Advise.

We did this excursion on 4/26/24 the experience was pleasant. Kevin with his explanations in English and Italian and his musical play list already made us really entertained. We took the €5 extra ticket to visit the capital of Gozo but the whole day was beautiful, it was worth visiting the wonderful blue lagoon and the other caves that you come across while sailing. The return trip by boat was very windy so bring the k way

Very nice experience, well organized The times planned for each viewpoint were perfect I recommend this cruise.

A truly beautiful day. Seen wonderful places. On board the ferry they gave explanations in both Italian and English about the places seen from on board and the very detailed appointments for the departure. I gave one star less because the only thing I would improve is the minibus which you can optionally take to Gozo at a cost of 5 euros each. The driver leaves you in one place for 10 minutes and at the Citadel for 2 and a half hours, without telling you where we are or what there is to see. He gives you the time and leaves. At least a small explanation like on board the ferry would be needed. For the rest I definitely recommend it. It's a great experience, especially at the Blue Lagoon.

A superb boat day with an adorable and humorous guide. We arrived well before departure to have the deckchairs on the roof and enjoy the view and the sun! The cocktails are very good and inexpensive! Delicious fresh pineapple on board and salads too! thanks again.
