  • Full-day Malta and Comino Island cruise from Sliema

Your tour begins with pickup from your Malta hotel and a short transfer to Sliema cruise port in time for a 10am departure. After meeting your captain and crew, hop aboard your cruise ship and set sail around the island’s beautiful beaches and bays.

Along the way, pass by Valletta, Malta's capital, and listen as your guide points out landmarks such as the Grand Harbour, Marsascala Bay, and St. Thomas Bay. Continue past Delimara Point; Marsaxlokk Bay, Malta's largest fishing village; and the famous Blue Grotto, then get your camera ready as you glide beneath the jagged Dingli Cliffs. Other highlights include the tiny Filfla Island and Anchor Bay, where you’ll have chance to spot ‘Popeye's Village', where the film ‘Popeye’ was shot on location.

Arrive at Comino Island in time for lunch and work up an appetite swimming and snorkeling in the glittering waters of the Blue Lagoon. You’ll also have the option to take a 25-minute cruise (extra cost; tickets sold on board) to explore the caves around the lagoon. Back on the boat, tuck into a delicious buffet lunch and sip a glass of wine as you gaze out from deck.

After more swimming and sunbathing, set out on the return journey, passing Mellieħa Bay; St. Paul's Island, where St. Paul was shipwrecked in 60AD; and Salina Bay. Arrive back in Sliema around 5.30pm, where a driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

This was a good introductory tour to Malta my first time. Comino is beautiful but VERY crowded. I went again since taking this tour and it is MUCH better to go early and leave before all the tour groups arrive. It is very easy and inexpensive to get to from Malta. The cruise around the island was rather uneventful and not too interesting. I wish we could have had more time in Comino!!

Overpriced! It's 20 euros if purchased on island. Company was a no show for pickup. After calling them they sent a guy to pick us up, but sent him to our hotel after telling us to walk to a restaurant. Was then dropped off at the wrong boat. Intercom on boat terrible. No transfer back to the hotel.

The Captain Morgan's tour is great. Wait until you get there to buy your ticket. I was charged DOUBLE the price by Viator. The price is 20 Euro. Do not pay more than that. There are multiple companies selling the tour to Comino. Comino is beautiful and a wonderful experience. Very crowded on the weekends. If someone suggests the sandy beach Santa Maria on the other side of the island you can skip it. It's small and it isn't close the the blue lagoon. The tour does not give you any descriptions of what you are passing by on the ride to Comino. They want to sell you a side trip for that.

We paid for a Malta and Comino Tour with lunch and unlimited drinks, but when we arrived at the pier/bay no one seemed to recognize our ticket or even know which ferry to direct us to. We were passed from captain to captain. In the end a coordinator just randomly pointed a captain, who shrugged and let us board. It wasn't until the ferry had set sail that we were informed that the tour we were in was a Gozo and Comino Cruise Tour. Obviously, that wasn't what we paid for.

The tour itself was absolutely terrible. The ferry barely had chairs to sit on, much less enough space to settle down in. It even left Sliemma more than an hour late. When we arrived in Gozo, the tour bus driver supposedly our tour guide merely drove us around without telling us anything about the sights we passed by. Instead, he kept on bossing us around and saying, Because you arrived late, you only have 15 minutes. I will leave you if you are not here by then. at EVERY stop. The Comino tour was much, much worse. The captain had said at the start of the tour that we will spend more time in Comino. But in the end, we were only given 15 minutes AGAIN in the island. That's 5 minutes going up the stairs and down into the Blue Lagoon, 5 minutes to swim, and 5 minutes to return to the ferry.

Excuse me for saying this truth, but paying for a Malta and Comino Full Day Cruise Tour, being directed to another one instead, and getting nothing worth what we paid for felt like a total rip-off. I honestly didn't expect a booking site such as Viator to sell us something of this infuriating caliber.

The pick up was at 09.15am. We had to call 2 times till the transfer appeared an hour later. The lunch on boat was poor, the tour was not as excited as it is described

The trip was as advertised: journey around Malta, lunch, and about 3 hours stay in Comino with an option to see the caves. Worth the money but could be a little bit more entertaining.
