Owner description: We offer two tours. Both tours depart from the Bugibba Jetty Monday to Saturday at 10.30am to 5.30pm. Option A - Comino + Blue Lagoon + Caves: 20euro. This cruise is attractive for all you beach lovers and island explorers. We stop on Comino island in the Blue Lagoon for 4.5 hours. Paradise to 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, snorkeling and sunbathing. You can enjoy the crystal clear waters by using our free snorkels aboard or the 10 meter water slide from the top deck. If you are not a swimmer or want to 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. Option B - Comino + Blue Lagoon + Gozo + Caves 25euro. Do it all in one day. This trip includes a 3 hour stop in Gozo and 1.5 hours 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 Dwejra, Fungus Rock, the inland Sea, stop at Ta' Pinu church, Citadel (the old fortified city), Victoria (the capital city) and bypass Xewkija church.

“Great day out”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

We would highly recommend the Hornblower cruise to Comino blue lagoon . The crew were freindly and helpful,the boat had lots of space for everyone and the atmosphere was fun and relaxed. The commentary was interesting and humorous too. We made use of the locker facilities and hired snorkels both very reasonable prices , the snorkels and masks were good quality and didn't leak. We enjoyed the use of the free deck chairs on board and the boat was an ideal base to use whilst we spent the afternoon at the blue lagoon. The boat was moored in a quiet spot away from the busier side of the lagoon which was great for snorkelling.

We chose this tour as a recommendation from our hotel, it's was fantastic from start to finish. We chose option A so 4 hours in the blue lagoon swimming in the clear blue sea then an hour going round Gozo. Kevin was brilliant and helpful in fact all the staff where extremely friendly and helpful throughout he trip. We also took the speed boat your into the caves and Tony was hilarious this is also a must on the tour. I would highly recommend you take this tour when in Bugibba.

“The best way to see the Maltese islands”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

The Hornblower is a very clean and spacious boat. Ideal for cruising round the islands of Malta Comino and Gozo. We took the trip in the mini bus round Gozo which was excellent. The bus driver was very chatty and gave us lots of information during the trip. The blue lagoon is a must to see. The facilities on board the boat are clean and the food freshly made to order. Adequate for a snack lunch. There is also a bar on board with reasonable prices. Kevin and his crew are a pleasure to be with on the trip.And where else would you be provided with a playpen for your baby or toddler, so that parents can relax and enjoy the trip too.
This was our third trip on the Hornblower we now cosider it to be part of our holiday on the island of Malta.
