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.

Had a brilliant day out with hornblower today to Camino iskand and then a mini us tour round Gozo. Do well organised and fab and attentive staff. Were picked up by minibus from our hotel, boat was great, clean and loved being able to sit or lie on astro turf on top deck with informative commentary and music. Suits families with children, couples or frisnd groups. Perfect stopover at Camino Blue Lagoon with time to swim and use the slide of the boat if you want to. Then grest minibus driver on Gizo. It wad qhivk tour and bas ic intriduction to Gizo with just an hour in tbe capital plus 2 other stops - but just right for us.
Can't complement the staff of hornblower and minibus driver enough. Eccellent ustomer service. Boat had clean toilets with plenty if toilet roll! And a bar fir drinks and snacks. Great day out - 1.30 - 5.30 from St Pauls.

The cruise with Hornblower to Kimino and Gozo was very enjoyable. They were on time and very responsive to your needs. Pointed out interesting facts about the cruise and even had decent food onboard. The sundeck was clean and the spacious. We were blessed with good weather to make the most of the slide put our for the plunge into the cool Mediterranean. :D. Thumbs up to Kevin and team

This is fabulous for so many reasons. You see so much with a great guide. They have options to do Gozo which was a well added value. The family that runs it is amazing. The facilities on the boat are great and kept clean. Such a great value.

Just returned from an amazing day. Went on the comino and Gozo trip. Got to say the blue lagoon is amazing. What made this trip great was the attentive nature of the owners and felt you were more than a number. Would highly recommend this outstanding company. Well donrc

We live on the main island of Malta and had a visiting couple to entertain. We took them on the Option B tour which departed promptly at 10:30 AM, and took us past impressive cliffs and caves, landing at the Blue Lagoon on Camino for 1 1/2 hours, which is a good time frame for a mile or two hike around the island on the many paths. Back on the boat, we went to Gozo, where we had a 3 hour stay with an optional minibus tour, by the charming Edward, who organized stops at four or five beautiful sites, including an hour in Victoria where we purchased a quick lunch in the main square. The trip home was very pleasant and again included many geological highlights. We had a great time with the amount of time in each place just right given the constraints of a day’s time.
