The best way to see the Blue Lagoon and Comno is with this boat. With really friendly staff, a spacious boat and an amazing view, you can’t go wrong. To be able to be in the centre of the lagoon and absorb the view around...More

We left Buggibba at 1030, reaching Blue Lagoon at 1155. We had one hour in the Blue Lagoon. Then the boat left for Gozo at 1300, arriving at 1315 to Mgarr Harbour. It left Gozo at 1615. Three hours in Gozo.
