Owner description: We offer two tours. Both tours depart from the Bugibba Jetty Monday to Saturday at 10.30am to 5.30pm. Option A - Comino + Blue Lagoon + Caves: 20euro. This cruise is attractive for all you beach lovers and island explorers. We stop on Comino island in the Blue Lagoon for 4.5 hours. Paradise to the beach lovers you've seen the image of the stunning Blue Lagoon on enough postcards, its time to check out the real thing. An afternoon here provides ample time for swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing. You can enjoy the crystal clear waters by using our free snorkels aboard or the 10 meter water slide from the top deck. If you are not a swimmer or want to explore the untouched beauty of Comino, with its breathtaking views and old history, you can walk up to the St. Maria tower built in 1618 A.D., the St. Maria Battery, or the old church built in 1716 A.D and enjoy the wonderful views of Malta and Gozo from the cliffs of Comino. Option B - Comino + Blue Lagoon + Gozo + Caves 25euro. Do it all in one day. This trip includes a 3 hour stop in Gozo and 1.5 hours on Comino. During the 3 hour stop one can explore the Island of Gozo by using our organised minibus tours which will take you to see Dwejra, Fungus Rock, the inland Sea, stop at Ta' Pinu church, Citadel (the old fortified city), Victoria (the capital city) and bypass Xewkija church.

Great day, great crew, great boat and went alongside our hotel in St Paul's Bay to drop us off rather than have to go round to Bugibba Jetty (I don't mind jumping over the side of moving vessels!) Great value.
Blue Lagoon and Caves were great, water was clear and warm to swim in. Beautiful and historic islands! Cheers Kevin!

Amazing trip out to the blue lagoon, comino and Gozo. We saw all of the main attractions. Extremely well priced. Very we'll organised and extremely informative staff both on board and at ticket sale points (along the sea front in bugibba). They organised hire bikes for us to take on board to Gozo, meaning we were able to cycle around the island during the stop off (trip b only)- this is something I would highly recommend, but is not for those uncomfortable cycling in the heat and up large hills!. The fact that Kevin went round every individual on the boat at
The end of the trip to check they had had an enjoyable time, and that he recognised us several days later made it all more personable and added to the experience.
We are only upset that we missed out on the Sunday boat party! (Which we are told is not for everyone as it has very loud music and customers that are there to party!)

I highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting Malta.

Thanks Kevin and the hornblower team, we will be seeing you again

Great day spent in Blue Lagoon Comino, most beautiful stretch of sea in the Mediterranean. A big thanks to the service offered by all the crew of the Hornblower, we were a group of 24 people and all of us had a great time. The fact that you can enjoy the boat facilities all the time, made the time spent in Blue Lagoon more enjoyable. Once again thanks to the crew. If you would like to visit the Blue Lagoon use the HORNBLOWER :)

What a fantastic experience that is NOT to be missed! Fantastic value for money and the staff are extremely helpful and polite. Delicious food on board and beverages which are fairly priced. We took option B which was a trip to the Blue Lagoon as well as Gozo. The Hornblower has added extras (at a very small fee) such as a speedboat ride into the caves and mini busses on Gozo to show you around.
If you wish to travel to Gozo and/ or the Blue Lagoon, I cannot recommend the Hornblower enough. A truly breathtaking experience that made the holiday that much more special!

We have just come back from our holidays to Malta. We took the Hornblower boat cruise to Comino, the Blue Lagoon, caves and bus tour of Gozo last 15th July 2014. It was excellent and we highly recommend it. The captain and the crew are really very friendly and the tour is really well organised and guided. You can't miss it!!!!!
