Can definitely recommend getting you’re own boat down here to enjoy the various bays around Malta, the owners are very capable and friendly just generally nice people to interact with. Boats have enough space to easily fit 5 people you get a free cooler for you’re drinks and there’s a sunshade on top for when it gets too hot.

Should also mention they have fair prices and on request the owners will help you as much as they can with explaining and giving tips also very fast in response.

We enjoyed it so much that we immediately rented the boat again for the next day.

enjoy people,

We were in Malta 3 weeks ago. We spontaneously decided to go on a boat tour. The PWS company was located next to our hotel. To be honest, we didn't really know if we should go there or not. As an info: the small narrow staircase is definitely the entrance. We were immediately welcomed very warmly and really felt like customers. The people are very helpful and gave us valuable tips for our boat tour. The price was very correct and people were very concerned when we got back if we liked it. The answer to this question was a resounding YES. Everything was perfect. The boat, the trip, the people, the attention ... nothing to complain about. I can only recommend PWS.

Myself & my four friends had a super experience on a small boat hired from Pembroke watersports at St George’s bay, St Julians in Malta.
Franchesca was lovely & talked us through what to expect so we were at ease when we took the boat out.
We had a great time & would absolutely recommend anyone who visits the area to take a visit to Pembroke watersports.

Ode to Franchesca

There was a lady named Franchesca
Who was from Malta
Not Manchester
She hired us a boat
Which we just kept afloat
Franchesca’s boatyard is the besta!

We had an AMAZING experience with the boat we have rented and drove for the day.
It was the 1st time for my boyfriend to drive a boat at sea, but the staff from Pembroke Watersports was extremely friendly and helpful and explained us all the rules and vital things to know when driving a boat, which made us feel extremely safe.
The boat driving part wasn’t as difficult as I have expected, after the first minutes you get used to it and you start enjoying the adrenaline.
The day we spent driving the boat to the Blue Lagoon on Comino was the most beautiful and adventurous of our one week Maltese holiday.
I couldn’t recommend this service more!
It was an unforgettable experience and we would love to repeat it next summer!

Just walking by we took the opportunity to rent a speedboat from PWS, a half-day experience at first followed by a full-day tour a few days later. Both trips have been very nice, a truly unique chance to explore Comino and Gozo shorelines at its best. The very friendly PWS team provided excellent and professional support, the boats were in pretty good shape, so we simply had a good time. We recommend PWS as a truly reliable pick for vacation. Thanks a lot, Nicolai & Sabine

A big thank you to Francesca and her team who gave me and my best friend a day we will never forget. The team clearly cared about us, advising we did a different day to our initial one chosen as the sea was too choppy. They gave us thorough safety briefings before using a self-drive boat for the first time, with chance to ask questions, demonstrations and clear instructions. Francesca checked in on us regularly using calls whilst we were on the boat and kept us on the right track, always offering advice. Thank you so much! I cannot recommend this company enough, they very clearly care about safety and well-being over making money PWS (Pembroke Water Sports)

We hired a self drive speedboat for a day to go see the blue lagoon, it may cost more than the day trips on the big boats but it’s without a doubt the best way to go see it. We got to see so much more and could stop where we wanted for as long as we wanted to. Franchesca had plenty of great advice to make sure we had a good day and even gave us a heads up on the conditions to expect on the way back which we’re spot on. A cool box and ice were provided which was a nice touch and definitely required. This day was the highlight of our trip to Malta, so thanks to Franchesca and everyone else at Pembroke Watersport.

Francesca and Edward were so helpful to our family - we hired a speedboat which was in great condition and Edward talked my husband through how to use it so throughly, very professional . I would definitely use them again, in fact we are going back tomorrow. Very reasonably priced too - would recommend

We saw Pembroke watersports from the beach and enquired about renting a speed boat. We rented a boat for 3.5hours and it has been one of our highlights of our trip to Malta. Francesca was so lovely and informative, we got lots of advice on where to go and areas to swim. We got a cooler box also for our drinks. Our boat had GPS so there was peace of mind that we couldn't get lost. The boat itself was so clean and comfortable, we honestly had a great few hours and anchored and swam in a beautiful little cove. I cannot recommend this company enough, it was very affordable and something exciting to do! Thanks again Francesca and staff!

We hired a speedboat for half a day, Francesca and Edward were really friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Cost was clear upfront. A must do experience if you want to go to blue lagoon and crystal lagoon at your own pace without a bunch of other tourists. Boat is very straightforward to drive if you’ve never driven one before.
