So much better than an organised boat trip. You go at your own pace, stop where you like. Malta's sights are equally wonderful seen from a boat. The boat was sturdy and comfortable; everything was explained to us beforehand by Mark. Great experience and highly...More

The owner is friendly and got us well prepared for an enjoyable boat ride on our own. Splendid views of the two zones of the bay. Handling is easy and the breeze is very relaxing given the hot weather.

What a great and easy experience. Mark was excellent. The entire process of making a reservation, payment of the deposit via Paypal, learning about the boat, boating maps of the area for tours and swimming, etc were completely organized. My two kids loved the two-hour...More
