Had a great time on the blue lagoon boat trip with Sandro. Very reasonably priced at €13 pp for a good day out. The boat leaves from by the beach in Mellieha which is very handy if you don’t want to have to get the bus to the ferry port. We sailed around the island of Comino, visiting a few caves, before stopping at the blue lagoon. We had 2.5 hours here which was plenty of time to swim in the lagoon. The boat has a toilet and other amenities such as swim floats for swimming in the lagoon, and a ladder for entering the sea. After this, we stopped at Crystal lagoon for another 45 minute swim before sailing back to Mellieha. I would definitely recommend English rose cruises if you’d like a day trip to the blue lagoon.

We had a WONDERFUL afternoon on 20 September, visiting Comino with the super-friendly skipper Sandro. If you do only two things in Malta, visit Mdina at night and do this cruise! Sandro's communication was excellent - I requested a booking for two at midnight for the next day, and he replied within two minutes! Sandro has a smaller boat, and this was great for getting closer into the gorgeous caves. My partner and I went on a similar cruise in Greece last year, but there were so many people on board that it was very noisy and not nearly as relaxing, due to the large numbers on board and the semi-constant music. Sandro's cruise also felt safer in the current situation - everyone could sit in the open air, but still with shade most of the time. There were about 20-25 passengers on board, which meant that it was not overcrowded but there was still a nice atmosphere, and we made some new friends. We had 2.5 hours at the Blue Lagoon, which was plenty of time. It is definitely a must-see, but is very, very busy at the tiny beach near the jetties. If you turn left and walk up the hill past all the stands selling drinks etc, you will quickly come across a bay which is very quiet and too beautiful for words. We also stopped at the Crystal Lagoon on the way back for about ninety minutes. This was perhaps even better - we had time to jump off the boat into the unbelievably clear and warm water. Snorkels and goggles are available if you want to view the abundant sea life below, and it was unanimously agreed by my partner and our new friends that it was a total "slice of paradise". It was much quieter than the Blue Lagoon, so made for a really nice contrast. I cannot recommend this excursion enough! We agreed that we will do this every time we return to Malta, which has been twice this year and will be at least yearly from now on. We also did the Blue Grotto tour a few days before, but were distinctly unimpressed by the breakneck speed of it - the engine never stopped once, and we got virtually no time to take photos. Sandro gave us enough time to do so - thank you! If you want to go to the Blue Grotto for some photos, do yourself a favour - get the 221 bus to the Blue Grotto, walk 10-15 minutes uphill to the bus stop "Panorama", see the amazing views from there and walk back down to the Blue Grotto bus stop for your return journey (there is no bus stop on the other side, due to the narrow and windy road). However, if you must make a choice between one and the other do Sandro's tour!

Great trip out to Comino island and Blue Lagoon. Well worth the money. Relaxed and friendly trip. We took our own drinks on board but there is no need as the prices from the on board shop are dirt cheap. Highly recommend.
