We were a couple seated on the water taxi when a group of 4 arrived. Taxi driver rudely told us to get off. Obviously he could make more money out of the group. Very disappointing.

Only every 30 minutes, alas ,but a nice quick way to get across to the city centre. If you don't to climb up to the city centre, there is a shutlle bus for 1 euro at the Valletta end.

The taxis take you across the harbour to Vallette which really saves the legs. You catch it in Sliema and it runs every few minutes.

I took a ride to see the sea caves. The boat can hold 7 to 8 people. The tour lasts for about 30 minutes. The caves are not very big. Nothing spectacular, or amazing, but still it is quite interesting to watch the shore landscape...More

Definitely worth going down the "Upper Barraka" lift and take a two Euro trip across the grand Harbour stop for a walk around the newly renovated dry dock. For those who remember what it used to be. If you go back within the two hour...More

We didn't take the tour but crossed the harbour to the 'three cities'. The trip is cheap at 2 euros each and you have the benefit of being in a traditional Maltese boat with a local at the helm giving you loads of information. Great...More

Took the water taxis several times over to the Three Cities and back. The boatmen are the real thing. Much more fun than the big ferry. Give these guys your business and you won't regret it.

Do you mean for the ferry? If so, it runs all the time. We were there at Christmas and we used it. The local people need it. You do not have to book. There is usually plenty of room. If it was full it does not take long to... More
