I love pottering round on boats, so when we booked to stay for three nights in Xlendi Bay on the island of Gozo whilst visiting Malta, I was pleased to see a boat rental place right on the quayside.

I enquired and found there were several motorboats I could hire and self drive without needing a licence and so we choose a nice, new, 100HP engined speedboat and booked it for a full day (8 hours).

We collected the boat at 9am from the owner, Louis, and got a full control and safety briefing from a couple of his team who also loaded our bags and picnic onto the boat and provided a cool box with ice to keep our drinks cold. When we reserved the boat the night before, I paid a deposit of €30 and Louis just told me pay the balance, plus fuel costs, after we returned from the trip.

We then set off towards the Blue Lagoon which should be about 20 minutes easy sailing from Xlendi. Unfortunately, as soon as we exited the very calm and protected Xlendi Bay, we realised that the weather was quite windy and the waves were therefore very high and rough! 😩 We were only able to travel slowly so as not to crash through the waves too hard and it therefore took nearly an hour of very slow and uncomfortable traveling to get there. By the time we arrived both my girlfriend and I were feeling quite seasick 🤢

However, once in the calm of the protected Blue Lagoon we quickly recovered and spent a fantastic day swimming and snorkeling in the stunning clear water, and fed loads of fish with the picnic that neither of us could face eating 😂. It was so great to have our own boat to experience this lovely place that we stayed longer than originally intended, and also because neither of us fancied sailing any more than needed given the rough seas.

We eventually headed directly back and got back to Xlendi about 3:30pm. Much to our surprise, Louis only charged me for 6 hours instead of the expected 8 hours I'd booked for. And even better, he gave me a €10 discount because of the weather - very unexpected and generous 😊

So the boat and the service are exceptional. Having your own boat in Blue Lagoon is amazing and highly recommended. Just make sure that the weather forecast is good, or that you have strong stomachs before you hire your own boat!

Hired Boat 5, originally for 3 hours but were able to extend the duration to 6 hours during the hire as we were having such a great time. The sea conditions were perfect and we traveled round the whole of Gozo and Comino. We anchored at Ramla bay for a swim and rest. Highly recommend.

Louis, Maria, family and team are a great business who over the years have always looked after us when we have hired boats, jet skis etc etc. This year was no exception. If you want to experience water sports on gozo I would highly recommend xlendi water sports.

We booked online and payed a small deposit. The guys who run the company clearly love their job and this was reciprocated through their service and knowledge - both of the boats and the must-sees around the islands. It was a perfect day at sea and so worth the very reasonable price. Put it this way, waves come and go but this bad boy of a company is here to stay and ride out those choppy waves. They even threw in a cooler box so you can chill your cured meats and the medicine you may need throughout your day. Highly recommend to any salty sea dogs and aspiring pirates!

Fantastic experience from Louis and colleagues, they were very professional…. Simple Boat to drive , we managed a swim in the Blue Lagoon at Comino, followed by Lunch on board and then we sailed the entire Island of Gozo back to Xlendi … The boats are immaculate and very Modern and come fully loaded with USB sockets , cold box etc , my niece hired a similar boat but unfortunately after an hour became unwell.. and when they came back early Louis refunded the unused hire time no quibble… that’s how to treat Customers… !!
Very well done Louis and co …. Looking forward to using your services again …!!…

Booked two activities through these guys. Friendly and engaging from the get go, I thought €70 for two on a jet ski for 30 mins was reasonable and my husband and teen had a great time. Good clear explanation of the dos and don'ts and they were away.

Second we hired a boat to take us around Gozo and stopping at different places to swim and snorkel......fantastic 4 .5 hours. Wonderful skipper who gave us a fantastic commentary of the different spots and history and significance.....also found us some wonderful places to swim. Would highly recommend these guys. Organized, friendly and reasonably priced.

Xlendi is an absolutely beautiful part of Gozo, and the best way to see the dramatic scenery up close is definitely out on the water. We didn't book online, just turned up on the day, and were able to rent out two kayaks at the amazing price of 5 euros per kayak for an hour. The men working at the stand couldn't do enough for us, offering to store our bags and hang up our towels to dry while we were out at sea. They also directed us towards a cave that we could explore while kayaking. Xlendi is beautiful and we had a lovely afternoon - can't recommend enough!

What an experience, couldn’t fault the boat…or man! Mimmo you are truly an asset to the business, you looked after a group of ten high maintenance girls with endless demands. Both trip and skipper were flawless - fun, informative, safe. You’d be silly not to try it!

Hired a speed boat for a couple of hours and well worth the price. Didn't hang about so two full hours going pretty much flat out cost €25 in fuel.

Very clean boat, briefing was sufficient, no issues other than a couple of idiots swimming in the boat lane in the harbour.

We hadn't booked ahead, and they were very busy on the morning we decided to go. We wanted to hire a boat for 4 hours for the two of us. The staff couldn't be more attentive and they were so friendly. We were provided with a coolbox with ice, a small dry box for your phone, keys etc, and a sea map. We were on board in less than 30 mins. We had a safety briefing and away we went! It was a beautiful day weather wise so we were lucky enough to drop anchor in a few bays, the snorkeling is amazing! Waters were crystal clear and so much sea life. It took around 30 mins to get to Comino, and we were able to sail around the whole island and have plenty of time to snorkel, have lunch, and relax on the boat. I highly recommend this company. You will need your ID card / document and at least one phone to be able to go out. Thank you for an amazing experience!
