The ferry was a nicer experience than the public bus service. A lovely way to travel. The service is excellent.

Fast. Efficient. Food isn’t great but it’s a short crossing! :) the one confusing thing is you ‘get on for free’. And pay your “return fare” on the way back.

A very easy way to get to Valletta and a short trip no stairs to climb and a bus to take you in to the city’s capital.

Traffic is horrible in Malta's capital, so to get to Valletta from Sliema this is perfect. Fresher air too than on the crowded roads. Prices are low.

If you are in Silema then go along to the harbour where the boat trips are and get the ferry across to Valletta..it takes 15 minutes and costs 1.50 euros a single trip..well worth it.

Much much quicker than taking the cafe. 1.5euros per person. There’s a couple restaurants, bars right at the Valletta side which is good when you miss a boat and have to wait.

Efficient, punctual, clean. You can beat the hectic traffic and enjoy a very pleasant ferry trip to the City instead.

Great service between Sliema and Valletta. Runs every 30mins both way. Trip takes 30mins. Very reliable.

We enjoyed the sea, it was really a nice experience, staffs were helpful and patient, weather was amazing, but better to keep warm cloth even in summer because sea can be windy always

Yes a regular service is available, yes discount applies but you have to ask, it is not given on visual look only, both are on summer and winter time tables.
