Reviewed August 29, 2013

So me and my italian friend were looking forward to going paragliding in ghadira bay. We had heard all about this from our friends so we were excited about all of this. When we finally found the people who were organising the excursions, the price for two people was ridicouslously expensive. The man we talked to was swearing out loud to his colleague, who was so sweet to us, but his boss was so mean to us. Then when we were about to pay him he said dont pay me pay the boy on the boat. We had to swim to get to this boat, which was stupid. then the boy didnt even bother talk to us, and when i gave him the money he told us that he wasnt responsible. when we got to the place, we had to wait half an hour, until someone came. The boys there were all swearing in maltese, and i understood everything. In fact when my friend asked what it means I was shy to tell her what everything meant. On the boat the man dropped the parachute and we had to wait 15 mins for it to dry up. When it was all finally over, when we said thank you to the man he completely ignored us. then when we asked to go back to the bay, the boy said he would take us, but instead he went to eat. Then we asked again, he got all angry and he told his friend to take us. In fact his friend said 'f*** you' which was completely rude. The whole idea of paragliding was fun and we enjoyed being up there, but the service, the people and the prices were horrible

My wife and I were on Holiday on Malta and we booked a cruise to the blue lagoon with oh yeah! I was surprised how good it was. Nice Cruises for reasonable price :) Crew were friendly and it was easy to book. Really great value for money. We both had a lovely day and enjoyed swimming with all the fishes in the blue lagoon!

Music much too loud with no consideration for guests or locals. Staff rude and seem to think they are God's gift. Nothing to recommend.

During a recent trip to Malta my husband and I booked a cruise to the blue lagoon with oh yeah! It was one of the hi-lights of the holiday. The crew were friendly, it was easy to book and it was only down the road from the hotel. Great value for money. We both had a lovely day and enjoyed swimming with all the fishes in the blue lagoon!

did 2 cruises with this company, very easy to book and very good price
the 1st cruise to the blue lagoon, was a lovely cruise, stopping at some caves etc, however we we then stopped at the blue lagoon, and i have to say it felt more like "dumped" there, for 3 hours. the blue lagoon though very pretty is tiny and horrendously packed.with very little to do, no where to sit, too packed etc far too many boat trips there, and with 2 small children 4 and 5,it was nigh impossible to get about the trecherous rocky paths. i know the layout of this area is no ones fault, but perhaps some heads up about its suitability for 2 young children from oh yeah wouldnt have gone amiss..so in essence we then sat on the boat for 3 hours...sailing back we went via gozo which looked pretty..it left me thinking from 11 - 4.30pm why stop for 3 hours at the blue lagoon? 1 hour there would have been more than plenty, then maybe an hour at gozo, and an hour swimming by caves or something..would make for a much more enjoyable varied experience. oh and the toilets on board the boat...disgusting.
the 2nd boat cruise we did was the sunset cruise, on a giant yacht, this was much nicer although my friend with her toddler and buggy got off in the end as there was no chance it was suitable for a small child, no edges to the boat etc....again they seemed happy to just let them on board...anyway this sailed around bugibba, st pauls bay etc, glass of wine offered on board towards the end..nice but got back 15 mins early so felt a bit cheated and very little seating on board for people...
1 thing missing from both cruises, commentary that everyone can hear, the guys driving the boat tell you quite a lot, we were sat near them, and they were nice, but sadly the rest of the boat will not know a thing, kind of misses the point of boat trips to me
good in parts, not good in others and i have to say wouldnt recommend :@(
