An around Gozo trip which doesn’t go ‘around’ Gozo’ may seem a bit of a disappointment.
But not in our case.
My partner and I were disappointed to be told (in person by Captain Matthew) that due to the southerly winds the round Gozo trip couldn’t be made due to H&S reasons. We were offered an alternative and decided to go with that instead; a trip to Comino and Blue Lagoon (which was on the original schedule) and a stop at another secluded bay on the way back.
I can say what a fantastic day we had. The weather was a little worrying to start, but that cheered up to reveal a beautifully sunny blue sky.
The food was fabulous, a little basic, but fresh and very tasty and free beer and drinks all day was a bonus.
Chance to swim in part of Blue Lagoon and a second bay (I can’t remember the name of it, sorry) that not every tourist goes to made the day as there were only around sixty on the boat; a comfortable number and not struggling to find any kind of space amongst thousands of other tourists was superb
The boat-a gullet called Faith – was sturdy and clean. The crew were friendly, polite and great to chat to.
And though we didn’t go around Gozo, I can’t fault the crew or blame them for the weather.
If you’re in Malta for any length of time I couldn’t recommend this highly enough.
