We had booked with D1. Upon agreed arrival time we have been left waiting for over 1h. Finally, we had been told that nothing will be available for the day anymore. Not an experience I wish to anyone!

D1 is located at the Hilton in Portomaso we used their services for a tour in the Harbour (1 hour) and a daytrip to Gozo and Comino. We had Mathieu a French speaking skipper , who brougth us to amizing places in and round the islans. The great stuff is that you can really choose where you want to go

Four of us rented a day boat. It was a lot faster than we expected and gad great fun stopping at various swimming spots including the blue lagoon. We could have done with a bit more advice on where to moor up especially at Gozo. We took a picnic lunch which was handy due to the mooring issues. Overall a... More

My wife & were staying at the Hilton on the Portamasso Marina. Whist out for a stroll we came across D1 Water sports. Seeing they operated a water taxi service to Valleta we opted for this mode of transport(small rib boat & great fun) rather than a crowded bus or by car. It was a great way to travel &... More

I used this company on different occasions and I must say the service is top notch. The water taxi service is great and boat trips and the valletta hourbour cruise are a must.

We rented some Jet Ski's. It was emerse fun. My children loved it. They had never been on Jet Ski's before. The manager and staff were helpful and great. Next time we will hire a boat. We want to do some Para Sailing but unfortunately do not offer this service at the moment.

Rented a Jet Ski from D1 which was a waste of money and zone enjoyment. I was never told before hand that the Ski would be set to L-mode which pretty much gives the ski just enough power to lift out of the water. I was asked did I have any experience which I told them I'd and was still... More

We rented a boat for a day, but they didn't provide any tips or guidance for what to see. The owner was quite rude in his way of addressing us. We have rented boats before and these were the most worn out and dirty we have experienced. They hadn't even cleaned the wind screen. However the boat was quite fast.

As we are staying in the Hilton we decided to have a walk down to the pier were the activities are. We were looking to go on the banana boat but it was a minimum of five people so we chose the crazy sofa instead. 'Crazy' is an understatement it was insane! We decided to go out for the 20min...
