“A must do family trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Would recommend anyone to take a cruise on the English Rose, Sandro will take you around the island of Comino, visiting places like the Blue Laggon, Crystal Cove, and the Caves. Drinks, sarnie's, ice cream available on board, do if your not a keen swimmer you can stay on board the boat. For those who fancy a dip in the Mediterranean Ocean then pack your snorkels, for a must see experience! Family friendly, caters for all. For those who enjoy the day trip, I would recommend the BBQ night, which is more suitable for adults as you don't get back til nearly midnight! 3 course meal off BBQ and traditional Maltese dishes, freshly prepared, wine all in with the price. Sing, dance, enjoy a night by the sea, totally different experience than through the day :)

You don't get better value for this type of cruise any where on the island :)

Thank you Sandro, Anthony and the rest of the crew for two great days x

“A great day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

We went on the comino cruise the first day after we arrived in Malta. Having read all the reviews and seen how many either say excellent or very good we decided it has to be tried. We booked ahead to ensure we got on the trip as people said it can get pretty busy, and although it wasn't packed it was fairly full on the day. Sandro welcomed us on board when we got there and left soon after we arrived (after Anthony had saved a child's hat from the sea). Ont the way to blue lagoon we stopped to see some caves around Comino and the village on the island that has 4 permanent residents. Stopping at blue lagoon for 2 1/2 hours gives you plenty of time to swim/ snorkel or explore the island. It was fairly busy when we went at the start of September so can imagine how packed it gets in July and August. Food and drink is sold on the boat with sandwiches made fresh there and then and also very cheap, I think €1.30 for a sandwhich. The sights on the way back are also great as well as the second stop for more sightseeing or swimming. All in all, a very enjoyable day at a very low price run by two very friendly guys who constantly have a lot of happy customers many of which return year after year.

“Night BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

14 of us went in the night BBQ trip to Blue Lagoon. It cost €19 per person, lasted around 5 hours and included unlimited food and wine. It was great value and the party, BBQ and night swimming in the lagoon was the best fun I've had in years. Would recommend this :-)

“what more could you want?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

I love this trip - I love the way you feel like you are on your own boat. The owner doesn't barge around bossily - he just lets you enjoy the boat and the trip. It is the best value for money ever. You can take your own food and drink or not, Sandro is chilled about it!! You can buy food and drink if you want too - this trip caters for everyone. The blue lagoon is fab - but if you don't like swimming you can hang on the boat and read or whatever!! Go on this trip for your own well being!!!
