The entire trip was an experience...specially the speed boat with Terry s banter😊...was a bit nervous initially but enjoyed thoroughly. Unfortunately swimming was a problem with the jellyfish troubling or would have been a blue haven. The trip to Gozo was an added attraction but would have been nicer if the coach had gone a step further and taken people around the city to a few sightseeing points. Lastly would be great to offer pick up facility from Valetta as it gets very stressful for a new comer.

This trip is definitely worth it! The boat is clean and tidy, the staff are very friendly and the food was lovely. Would highly recommend going with these guys to visit the blue lagoon if not only to experience entering the water via the boats built in slide from the top deck. We decided to stay on board the boat and visit the island of Gozo another day and the swimming in the waters and sunbathing on top deck were too enjoyable to give up. Just watch out for the jellyfish haha.

Be prepared to spend extra for everything
Apurva_J

A good trip but be prepared to spend extra for everything. The trip over all was good and quite punctual. However, literally every activity will cost extra. I am not referring to food and drinks which of course would cost extra but the boat ride to the caves or the bus ride to see the island, each and everything. The speakers on the boat were not the best so even though there was a guide explaining the nearby places, we could not understand him. There was little to no guided tour on the bus ride. Pros: Punctual and friendly staff. The water slide is really fun. Cons: You need to pay extra for the side quests. Summary: It was quite enjoyable and fun, just go in with the mindset that it is not an all inclusive ticket.

Dear Apurva, Thank you for taking the time to review us. Your comments help us to improve our service. I have informed the captain and crew regarding the speaker and they are having it checked. Regarding the speedboat and mini bus/ coach tour on Gozo this was all highlighted in the description of the tour, in the included and not included area of the website and also again in your ticket. Thus making it clear that they were not included in the ticket price. We thank you again for your review and wish to have you join us again onboard maybe for the full day Comino Blue Lagoon tour or the Sunset cruise. Best wishes, Captain Kevin, Katherine and the Hornblower Team

Good value and worthwhile

We had a great experience, it’s cheap for what you get and they’re very professional and helpful. The Blue Lagoon was beautiful, though very small for where you can actually place yourself (any real space is dominated by rentable deck chairs) if you’re organised and use the boats lockers for your stuff it can be easier on your experience. Overall a really good day to be had. Do the Gozo bus tour they offer, it’s good value 👍🏼 We were cautious of the large capacity but our day was very manageable with no feeling of being too busy onboard

A really fun trip. Lots of photo worthy views. Beautiful boat and good music. Got to swim from the bost in the Blue Lagoon. I recommend the extra 5 euro coach tour of Gozo as it gives you just enough time to swim through the Inland Sea cave which is AMAZING!

Value for money

Great experience for the price. Blue Lagoon - overcrowded, littered, vendors on the island privatised the beach asking to pay 7.5 euros for the lounge chair and 5 euros for umbrella per hour, literally no space left for people to approach tiny sandy beach. However you can easily jump and swim from the boat as we had quite secure anchorage with plenty of space to enjoy. Tour offered for extra 5 euros on Gozo island - started as nightmare. Coach was overbooked and driver asked people to stand, then drove with an open door :D we had 2 stops one at Victoria (Rabat) and another at Azure Window (collapsed arch) with plenty of things to explore. On the way back to the ship driver has arranged for additional minibus to collect excess passengers. Would recommend as budget friendly option, if you look for more refined experience look for alternative option!

Poor duty of care
preenalshah

Overall pretty decent but there were some red flags. My toes were crushed accidentally by someone so my husband went to ask for some help. He initially asked for a first aid kit, which responded with ‘We don’t have one’. He then asked for some ice, which they were hesitant to give out because ‘we won’t have enough ice for the drinks.’ It was only when my husband said ‘you expect my wife to be in pain for the rest of the trip’ did they give us an a bag full of ice. They did not bother to even follow up, were more concerned about making their money through serving food and drinks. Very disappointed and would not recommmend

Gozo on this boat ride !
Seth_P
, May 2022
What a wonderful day on the water. This was a great excursion with great value. The views were amazing, the staff was friendly, and the boat was spacious. It was an excellent way to explore Comino and Gozó without breaking your wallet. Swimming in the blue lagoon, jumping off the boat, and zipping down the water slide was so much fun. We opted to get lunch in Mgarr instead of doing the bus cruise on Gozo and it was very nice. We dined at Tmun which was exquisite but not too pricey. This boat cruise was very fun and we would gladly recommend it to anyone looking for an adventure packed day!

This was a very good trip. The boat leaves from Bugibba harbour taking about an hour to Comino, which is ideal, with good stops at the blue lagoon and on to Gozo. Worth either getting the tour’s bus in Gozo for an extra 5 euros or doing the hop on hop off bus from and back to the harbour. Staff were very helpful and when our trip was postponed due to strong winds on our scheduled day everything was rearranged easily to suit our schedule. The boat is very good, it’s worth getting there about 9.20 to get deckchairs on the upper deck, but these become available through the day as well. Facilities on the boat were very good, clean toilets and helpful staff. Good play list. Can take food with you or reasonable onboard, with options at each stop. The bus drivers in Gozo were very good and explained the position well at the stops. Good value for money & well worth it for a relaxing boat trip & tour.

Jennifer, Thank you for your review. We are happy you enjoyed the experience with us. You must visit us again in October (my favourite month) its not too busy and the sea and weather temperature are amazing not too hot but warm enough to get into the water. Until the next time :-) Kind regards, Katherine, Kevin and the Hornblower Team

The trip to the islands was lovely. The boat was easily accessible, the crew was great and service was good. I would recommend the additional ground transportation in Gozo. Also it can get quite chilly on the deck so it’s good to carry a cover up or jumper.

Rachel, Thank you for leaving us your review we are happy to hear you enjoyed your day with us. Good tip with respect to the jacket as it is still early in the season and having a jacket with you is important as it gets cold while cruising. Up until end May it is good to bring a warm jacket. It was a pleasure having you aboard and we would love to have you join us again next time you are in Malta. Best wishes, Kevin, Katherine and the Hornblower Team

We really enjoyed the tour, the commentary was fun and the colour of the sea was so beautiful! Even though it was still early in the year we had a paddle in the blue lagoon which was great. And the tour was very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.
