      Epic day out cruising in Malta and Gozo.
      Our day out on a 42’ Bavaria was a surprise birthday treat from my wife. We had a full day package from 9am to 6pm and made it all the way from Kalkara marina up the East coast of Matla visiting various coves for swimming on the way, then a stop in the Blue Lagoon, lunch cooked in the bay of the Comino hotel and then more cove hopping and a relaxing cruise back. David our captain was an adopted Maltese local having lived on the island for 30 years but originally hailing from Halifax, UK. He was great company, very knowledgable about all the sites on the shoreline and full of great chat to do with Malta and all that goes on there and in Gozo. The BBQ was really delicious, prepped on-shore by the owner’s wife and then rather expertly cooked and served by David, clearly a man of many talents. We would highly recommend this food option. Sometimes cruise food can be a bit of an afterthought and we had considered bringing snacks from M&S in case. We didn’t and there was no need to at all - fabulous dining. Overall something we will definitely do again and we think our kids would love on a less romantic occasion. 100% - hope to see you again David!

      An absolutely fabulous day, felt safe and very well looked after. The captain, Vlad, was extremely knowledgeable and very good with our two boys, 13 & 11. Highly recommend

      Evening sunset boat ride
      One super experience from the time I picked the phone to book the boat to the moment we berthed at 11pm at the Kalkara pontoon. This is what efficiency, a professional service and satisfied customers are all about. Hats off to the skipper as well. Keep up the good work, David, I'd recommend with my eyes shut. Australian visitors very impressed.

      3 day sailing charter
      I’m just back from 3 glorious days sailing with friends and family and Captain Ed. Ed was brilliant he knew exactly where to take us, we stopped at some beautiful spots around the islands and we all enjoyed the sailing. Ed is very knowledgeable and very patient. The facilities on the boat were great and one evening we chose to have a BBQ provided by the company, the food was excellent.

      Fabulous sailing around Gozo & Malta
      Very spacious yacht for 6 adults and our fabulous skipper Ed for a 3 day charter. Asked them to provide our first night’s food - huge quantities and really good quality. Skipper was excellent: very helpful, friendly, fun and informative. Happy to share his knowledge and help people increase their sailing skills and make the most of our time onboard. Great service and support from David throughout the booking process and meeting and greeting etc. Would highly recommend and would definitely return again.

      Fantastic three days sailing around Malta & Gozo
      Our multi day trip was planned several months ahead. David the owner was extremely helpful with the planning and great to deal with. We wanted to spend a night at anchor somewhere quiet and took the BBQ package, found of prepared by David’s wife. Delicious and plentiful, so much so that we were still eating up the salads two days later. Ed, our skipper was a joy, extremely pleasant and helpful and happy to help as we practiced our boat handling skills. We circumnavigated Malta and Gozo in three days with lots of swimmers stops. If you want a short sailing holiday with a great operator, talk to David and start planning

      Great time and great people
      We are from the US and booked a charter trip online. The owner, David, was very attentive and responsive to all our questions and answered all our emails quickly. The boat was a beautiful Bavaria 41’. Our Captain, Nicco, was knowledgeable, polite, and wonderful person. He was willing to share sailing knowledge and instruction and we learned much from him. Overall great experience from a great company of great people.

      Afternoon boattrip with Ed
      We went for an afternoon boat trip with Ed. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t quite on our side, but Ed made the trip worthwhile nontheless! We stopped for a swim by the coast, had great snacks and Ed was an awesome captain and guide.

      Amazing sailing day
      Last Minute decision, BEST DECISION!!!! David was very accommodating with our 16 hr booking notice! We had such an amazing day on the boat with Captain Steve! He was great!! We learned so much from him on our short time on board! It was super cool to meet a fellow Californian! The boat was so nice and super clean!! The boat was well stocked for all the fun activities! Due to the short notice we were unable to request the BBQ but they did supply drinks and stopped a little restaurant on the beach! It was beautiful to sail the Mediterranean Sea!!! I highly recommend this company and also request captain Steve!!!!

    The booking process was smooth and David made all the small adjustments to timing and to the food to suit our schedule and needs. Our skipper, Mark really went above and beyond and made sure that we (family of four with two teenagers) got everything we wanted done in what was a packed 9 hour trip. We made three stops in beautiful secluded bays that were fantastic for us to go for a swim and paddle board. The BBQ and food was excellent, I highly recommend that you go for that option. We had swordfish and chicken. Mark also gave us a tour of several caves along the Maltese coast at the end of our trip and then we made it into the grand harbour just at sunset.

    This was one of the best days of my life, arguably! Our charter was originally scheduled for a Friday, but the forecast changed drastically on Wednesday evening. David messaged me and let us know and worked really well with us to get everything prepared for Thursday instead. It was great communication and a very nice experience!

    The day of our trip was beautiful! Nick was our skipper (hi Nick, hope you are seeing this)! He took us around to the Blue Lagoon, where we swam and ate the delicious food he cooked for us on board! We ventured around to multiple bays, only dropping anchor where it was safe to do so. We paddle boarded and tanned out on the front of the boat, swam some more and had many great laughs.

    Nick was so kind! He gave us a run down on the history of Malta, shared travel experiences, and was overall a great skipper. He is also very good at rating your diving abilities - i think my score of less than 0/10 was really hilarious.

    Thank you Nick and David for a great experience!! I will be sure to book again on my next trip to Malta.

    Our best day in Malta!!
    I cannot recommend this tour enough!! My husband, sons (3 & 6), and I did this on our last day in Malta. We definitely saved the best for last! David, the owner, made everything easy and effortless for us. When I forgot to put our food order in on time (preferred 3 days notice but I remembered the morning before 🤦🏼‍♀️) he made sure that we were taken care of. I’m so glad he did, because this ended up being one of my favourite meals over the 10 days we were there. Please do yourself a favour and absolutely order the BBQ!! We were thrilled to have a grill on board and ordered the steak skewers. Our Skipper, Matthew, was an excellent griller! Midway through the day we anchored and just had the most amazing lunch. David’s wife, makes all of the food herself, with love, I could tell ☺️ The appetiser dip was out of this world; like I really want the recipe! 😂 There were also ham & cheese sandwiches for the boys, with fresh fruit. So great.

    The day started with David personally greeting us at the dock and getting us all set to cast off. The boat itself was gorgeous, her name was Passion. It was one that could entertain a group of eight, but it was just us four. There was a fridge and stove, even beds to lay down if you needed a bit of a rest...we didn’t but our three year old did lol. So, you can make the day completely your own, and once we got settled we mapped out our plan with Matthew and were off. The views from the harbour were amazing, as were all our views that day. It took about two hours to get to the Blue Lagoon, which is the place everyone wants to go, with good reason. It’s so beautiful...the water, the caves, the boats, the people; just a lovely spot. Matthew had so much knowledge and so many interesting stories to tell along the way too. He was the kinda skipper you don’t mind being with for 9 hours haha. He was so helpful and made it easy for us to relax. My three year old kept going down below and subsequently vomited 🙈 Luckily I has about a thousand antibacterial wipes and disaster was averted. Anyways, we just cruised all round taking it all in, it was the best time. My three year old just asked to go back to Malta as I’m typing this haha. Have fun making memories and enjoy!! Xx

    HIGHLY recommend the full day private charter… We had a sensational day with our skippers Mark and Nick on one of their beautiful yachts, so much so that we booked again for two days later! Mark is very knowledgeable about Malta and the surrounding islands and made sure we were well looked after for the duration of our trips. Both boats were gorgeous and well equipped with sound systems and plenty of room for our beers and Prosecco! They also came with paddle boards which was great for one of our friends who isn’t a confident swimmer.

    This is THE best way to see the most beautiful parts of the islands, a must-do for anyone visiting Malta. Thanks Mark and co for an incredible two days!

    We have chartered sailing boats from various companies in Malta and highly recommend Sailing Charters Malta due to its consistent level of service and hygiene/cleanliness. We usually charter the Bene offers the best service (skipper, meals and boat hygiene/cleanliness) at a consistent level. Steve, our skipper, was extremely proactive in making us comfortable and entertained, and his skills and knowledge at sea was apparent.

    My partner and I booked a day sailing package this summer and it was an unforgettable experience. Our skipper, mark, took us to some beautiful quiet spots along the Maltese coast where we enjoyed lunch and snorkelling.

    The boat was perfect, equipped with snorkelling equipment and paddle boards as well as plenty of kitchen utensils to accommodate a large group.

    The skipper was brilliant, he had plenty of interesting stories to entertain us as we cruised around the island.

    A group of 14 of us booked a private charter with Sailing Malta Charters for a recent trip to Malta. We were on a cruise ship and needed to coordinate transportation from the cruise pier, to the vessel, lunch, and return back to the cruise pier. David at Sailing Charters Malta was excellent to deal with - he was very responsive to my many emails, and was able to accommodate us when our cruise ship docked at a different pier than expected. Transportation to/from cruise pier was an air conditioned large van (we were 14) and was very comfortable. The driver was awesome and even stopped for a quick grab of snacks. Lunch on board was arranged and was well worth the money - we chose the cold lunch which was sandwiches, pasta salad (which was a meal in itself) and a delicious cake for dessert. Water and pop was also included.

    We holidayed to Malta for our honeymoon and booked a day sailing just the two of us on the day which was also my birthday. All communication with David in booking was excellent, and our skipper Carl was amazing. He couldn’t have done more for us - drinks when we needed, food when we wanted, even bringing us wine from the cabin out to the front where we were sunbathing and not spilling a drop! He took us to the Crystal lagoon in Comino away from the busier Blue lagoon, and we had a great time swimming and using the yacht’s paddle board (badly). The yacht itself was perfect, very clean and modern with all the amenities you could require. We had a BBQ lunch and a traditional Maltese platter of meat and cheese as an earlier snack. Fruit kebabs for later, and even a complimentary birthday cake. I believe all the food was prepared by David’s wife too, and it was plentiful and delicious. You honestly won’t regret booking a charted yacht with this company. And it can’t be emphasised enough how excellent Carl was, the day wouldn’t have been the same without him. Thank you SCM!

    If your looking to charter a boat in Malta, look no further! We chartered a boat from Sailing Charters Malta back in 2018 and had the most incredible day out, we had to do it again this year!

    This year we had a lovely skipper called Jurre who treated us like royalty from start to finish. After arriving at the Marina we traveled up to the blue lagoon passing the stunning Malta coastline, once we arrived we dived straight into the beautiful crystal blue waters and began to explore. After a long swim we got back on board for a stunning Maltese platter. We then lifted the anchor and moved round to the Crystal lagoon where we got the paddle boards out (a new addition since our last visit). The paddle boards were the perfect way to explore some of the caves in the area. We then went back on board where Jurre started cooking our delicious BBQ and served us up the wine included in the catering package we had opted for (very reasonable priced)! The food was even better than i had remember last time, absolutely stunning!

    We then lifted the anchor and had a lovely sail back to Kalkara Marina.

    A huge thank you again to David for organising, Davids wife for the incredible catering and of course Jurre for taking such good care of us again!

    See you again next year!

    Our family of six chartered a yacht for the day and had the honour of having Captain Phil as our skipper. Not only was this a phenomenal experience, it was the highlight of our trip! Captain Phil was amazing with the children, had them involved in the process of yachting, and was not only talkative, but an amazing host. The food was excellent, the boat was super clean, and Phil took us to wonderful spots to swim. This is a must-do on your trip. For us, we didn’t want to be on a boat with hundreds of other people so this was the best way to experience the Malta coastline from the sea while enjoying a beautiful day out on the boat. David was an incredible communicator, and the food provided by David’s wife was phenomenal. I was originally worried about the long day and the sun, but the day flew by and there was a sunshade that covered us the entire day. When we return, we will most definitely be booking this again. I cannot recommend this experience, and Captain Phil, enough. Thank you!
