Option A - Comino + Blue Lagoon + Caves: 20 euro This cruise is attractive for all you beach lovers and Island explorers. Stopping on the Island of Comino for over 4 hours one can 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. As for 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 and snorkelling.

Option B - Comino + Blue Lagoon + Gozo + Caves 25 euro Do it all in one day. This trip includes a 3 hour stop in Gozo and 1 hour 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 the Azure Window, Fungus Rock, the inland Sea, bypass Ta' Pinu church, Citadel (the old fortified city), Victoria (the capital city) and bypass Xewkija church.

From start to finish this was a well organised day out. Transport on time to pick up outside the apartment. Excellent day in the sunshine at Gozo, calling for a swim en route. This family run boat is a must for travellers to Malta.

We travelled on the last trip of the season to Gozo and Comino with Hornblower cruises, and had a great day. The boat is a good size, with room to move about, and the staff are polite, friendly and informative. After a short stop at the Blue Lagoon, we opted for the trip to Gozo, and a minibus tour of...

Really had an enjoyable experience. This family run boat is clean and offers really good food at ridiculously cheap prices! We had the opportunity to lay down on the top of the boat and never really left the boat! Will definatey return and would recommend to anyone.

Can't recommend going on this cruise enough. Its great for family couples and solo. for 25 euros (per person) they collect you from your hotel and drive you to the boat, take you on a 30 minuet tour of the islands and caves around Malta. They stop off at the Blue Lagoon which is a small beach, my mrs and... More

We were staying right by selema ferry, but checking reviews decided to travel and take this one. Nearly didn't make it, but so glad we did. I would recommend allowing an hour for his side not 45mins as we did! Crew friendly and helpful. Blue Lagoon is such a tourist hot spot with any other company you could cry. Luckily... More

We took the day trip to the blue lagoon/comino island without the Gozo tour. Staff all very helpful, friendly and informative. The facilities were fine- toilets clean, locker and snorkels available for a small deposit. Lots of space to sit around as they don't overfill the boat. Would recommend!

Just spent a wonderful day aboard the Hornblower. Everything was well organised, and the crew on board the ship were unbelievably helpful and friendly. We opted for option B with the tour of Gozo, which I would definitely recommend or you'll just spend 3 hours at the blue lagoon. Everything was extremely reasonably priced, our lunch cost about €6 each,... More

Great day. The crew were really friendly and helpful and called me by my first name all day. Unfortunately due to sea conditions we couldn't leave from Bugibba and mini buses were laid on for us to a new departure point. We were taken to the Blue Lagoon where I was able to swim from the boat in a perfect... More

What a great cruise! Staff were friendly, the boat is comfortable and the information throughout the day is really useful. Without s doubt pay extra to go on Crazy Tony's speedboat, best fun ever. Only thing I wouldn't do next time is the Gozo minibus tour. Felt like I didn't see Gozo properly, hard to see sitting in a minibus,... More
