We decided to take this trip although we heard Blue Lagoon is crowded. The boat was a bit crowded as well, and although we came early, we barely found a few shaded seats. The views are amazing, as well as the caves. We thought we would be allowed to jump as swim in the caves, but it was just a... More

I've enjoyed coming on this boat trip for the last 20 years. It's still the most friendly and enjoyable boat trip experience I've found, Sandro and the crew are always exceptionally welcoming and informative. Both the Comino trip and Grand Harbour cruise offer a fantastic day out. For me this is a must for anyone looking for a great day... More

This trip had the potential to be fantastic, but personally I felt too many people were crammed onto the boat, it felt uncomfortable. Sailing to comino was lovely but arriving at the blue lagoon was v disappointing, so many people and boats. I feel this should be regulated and limited to how many can arrive at a time, what could...

English Rose Blue Lagoon cruise was one of the biggest highlights of our trip to Malta! Sandro and the rest of his crew were so kind and helpful throughout; from making the booking to providing sandwiches and cold drinks! We loved that the boat was nice and small so it wasn't crowded and was easy to move around! All in... More

I had booked the English Rose Cruises BBQ cruise for our first Wednesday evening on Malta, in advance by e-mail. Sadly, the day we arrived we received an e-mail stating that the BBQ cruise could not go ahead due to a rough sea. Fair enough, safety first! We had also booked to do the Grand Harbour Cruise, four days later.... More

Hard to beat a day at 12€50 ! I booked our trip by email - I received a reply immediatly. The welcome aboard was very warm and what a wonderful day we had. We didn't take any food or drink aboard and I was glad I hadn't - a cup of tea/coffee was 80 cents ! Sandwiches were really cheap... More

There are lots of boat trip providers in Malta, all offering similar experiences but English Rose must be the best. The boat is smaller than most of the others which allows you to get closer to the caves and the atmosphere was much more relaxed and peaceful in comparison to some of the larger cruises we saw. Sandro was great-... More
