My Husband Phil & I enjoyed this years 3 Island All Day Trip so much we rebooked for another one.
We were collected promptly, Captain Chris & his Crew were their usual welcoming, organised friendly selves, plenty of swim stops with swimming aids/life jackets for non/inexperienced swimmers. In addition, adhering to Covid19 reduced customer capacity, chilled packed lunches/free water/wine; fabulous days

We took this full day tour as part of our honeymoon, and could not have been more pleased. Picked up and dropped off in front of our hotel. Staff was friendly and courteous. Swimming in the Med - amazing!! Unlimited still water and white wine provided, and the lunch was a generous Mediterranean spread as well, not small sandwiches or fruit you would get on most boats. During the stop at the caves, the 5 euro might not be worth it for some, so if you're feeling adventurous you can swim there! Earn that pasta and wine :)

We were staying at a place close to the harbor in Gozo, so we ended up walking down to the boat instead of waiting for a pick up bus. The boat was ready on time and we boarded quite comfortably. We sailed with few people from Gozo to Malta mainland where a whole bunch of people came on the boat but there was plenty of comfortable seating for everyone. We then went to Paradise bay where we were pretty much alone in the deep water. We were allowed to jump off the boat at all points and it was a thrilling experience. There is also a fresh water shower that you can use after exiting the water. Then we went to Popeye's village which we saw from the distance. Next up was crystal cove. For a 20 Euro deposit you can borrow snorkel gear on board. They will refund you the money if you return the gear at the end of the day. Gear was great, no leaks and we saw some cool fish and a reef. In the blue lagoon we did not enter the lagoon but stayed in the distance. We still got to dive and swim in the crystal clear waters. You do not get to swim to the beach but who would want to considering that it is packed like sardines.... lunch was not great. But it was sufficient. It was rice with corn and tomato, pasta salad, mixed leafy green, bread and vegetables. Plenty of food for everyone. Cold white wine and ice water was included all day and soda was available for 2 euro a can. You can bring anything you want on board. We spend about another hour at a deep water cove for swimming and jumping. The whole day cruise was 4 swim stops at an hour each plus you get to see the sites. Considering that a ferry to comino is 10 Euro just for out and back plus lunch on the sea is 10Euro a person, snorkel gear runs you 10-15 euro a day and an umbrella 20 euro at the beach, the cruise is well worth its cost.
Our family of 3 loved it! The crew was super great!
Would highly recommend it to anyone and do it again.

When we first arrived i was a bit disappointed at the number of people on the boat, but it ended up being an excellent trip!!! We stoped to swim for a hour in 3 separate spots and were able to go into the caves for a small fee of 5€. There was unlimited wine and water on the boat! Plus they let you use floats and snorkel gear with ole on each swimming trip. We had a great time and spent the day island hopping and swimming. Also the boat crew were super nice and we had a great experience.

What I really liked about this trip was that you got to do four swimming stops and got to the blue lagoon before all the massive boats with hundreds of people on there, plus got to see some lovely sights along the way. Well worth the money with transfers and lunch included.

Trash company. Sent us a map for pickup to the completely wrong spot. Sent us a cab eventually later and got us on the boat. The tour itself was alright. Then left us completely stranded on the pier after.

We had amazing luck with the weather and the boat was a charming old style kind of boat. The views of the sea are amazing and the food provided was good and fresh. My only issue was that there were too many of us in the boat. It loses its charm and in the blue lagoon, we never parked so it's just jumping off the boat and swim around.

The guys were ok and they reaaally want to promote that Angelina Jolie and Brad pitt filmed "by the sea" in of the places we visited.

Enjoyable full day tour. Great cruise with a good vibe onboard, spectacular scenery and plenty of opportunity for swimming around Comino. The afternoon in the Jeep was a heap of fun and a great guide to show us all the sights.
