“Not To be Missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

I was on the hornblower which docked at the blue lagoon where I met Tony and his speedboat which me and my parents did not go on last time. But we were all so glad to pay the 8 euros for 25-30 minutes around Comino and Blue Lagoon because Tony took us to some amazing sights and I was impressed with how relaxed you could feel with Tony and how he pulled some hilarious pranks on the passengers. I would recommend this speedboat trip to anyone

“Highlight of holiday in Malta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

Can't say enough good things about this man and this experience. After originally taking a trip to the blue lagoon on one of the stereotypical captain Morgan (etc) boats, we were soon enticed by Tony's speech about his speedboat over the microphone. We hurried over to ask more about it and decided to go back with him rather than on the original boat. We couldn't be happier we did, it was such a great experience. Tony made an hours journey seem like it took no time at all- in fact we were rather wishing the journey was longer. This is the perfect trip to take, whether young or old (me and my wife enjoyed it thoroughly, as did our 19yr old daughter) and at just €30 for the entire day it is extremely great value. All in all, it was one of my best experiences in Malta and I would have to say, something that you absolutely must do if you ever visit.

Oki is a legend, a true character. He showed us some wonderful sights and the experience was one of the highlights of our trip.

“Great guy and great experience ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

If you're looking to get to Comino Island, the caves and the Blue Lagoon, Tony is the best person to take you there! We previously went there with Luzzo and were disappointed with how impersonal the staff was and we could tell they just wanted to make money off us and nothing else. So for the second trip, we found Tony from Okikokibanis and even though it cost slightly more, it was worth every bit just to have such an amazing experience with such a great guy. Tony treated us like people and not just like tourists and he has a set price so you know he won't rip you off. He also has two of the cutest little dogs that he brings with him an they are so personal and loving! The boat ride was also really smooth and enjoyable and he is happy if you make yourself at home and wants you to have the most enjoyable experience possible. I would highly, highly recommend this company!

“A must-do in Malta!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Our day trip to the Blue Lagoon with Tony was simply amazing. His character and charm made our entire trip and we would never go with anyone else there again. A few days before we had gone with another cruise company (Lazza Cruises) and it had taken hours to get there, wasting precious beach time! We met Tony and his two little dogs while at the blue lagoon and instantly regretted not using him instead! We decided to go back and so found Tony just outside of our hotel in Saint Julians! He is so fun and friendly and made us feel welcome on his incredibly nice boat! The ride was quick and smooth and we had the company of the dogs the whole ride! Simply fantastic, you won't regret riding with him!!!
