Well, driving a boat is not like riding a bicycle, but the experience is worth it.
We rented a self-drive boat for two for three hours. We went to Comino and visited every bay. Everything was clearly explained by Bluewaves Watersports. They gave us a map which was easy to follow. You can play your own music via Bluetooth. It's really nice being alone in the sea. At first we were afraid to go near other boat or the land but in time we got confidence. If you want to go only to Comino - three hours are enough but if you want to visit Gozo - maybe you will have to rent the boat for 8 hours.
The problem with small boats is that everyone is driving faster than you and their boats are more stable. We didn't experience any difficulties but near Blue Lagoon (the bay is crowded all the time) we have to stop a few times in order to let other boat pass.
In the afternoon the waves are bigger and the boat is not as stable as in the morning, so I definitely recommend a morning drive.
As to Comino - it is more beautiful than the main island, but compared to Greece the view is nothing special. Nice bays, clear blue water, a lot of rocks.
