9 Comino and Gozo Boat Trips to Cruise Your Way in One Day

Gozo & Comino in One day: Boat Trip Cruise to Malta Sisters’ Islands

Visit Gozo and Comino in one day with boat trips and cruise activities for water sports and sightseeing without fretting over which bus to take in Gozo for land excursions. A cruise will bring you to see panoramic cliffs, coves and inlets around the islands which are unique travel highlights in Malta. Swim, snorkel, dive or sunbathe at renowned Comino Blue Lagoon.

Comino Boat Trips

Gozo and Comino in One Day

You can see both Comino and Gozo in one day due to the similar direction in which the cruise is heading. It is a popular choice for tourists to shorten the travelling time as many boat trips offer such a service. Departing from Sliema Malta, the ferry will first pass by Comino and then to Gozo as Comino Island is in the middle of the three islands.

However, you may also want to consider spending two different days in Comino or Gozo by taking a ferry. That depends on the intention of your visit and length of stay in Malta. After spending 2 weeks in Malta mostly in my Maltese friend’s car, I have concluded that the waiting time for buses and the journey is time-consuming and crowded. I have also taken a bus to the beaches situated in the northern part of Malta.

Swim at Comino Blue Lagoon

The renowned Blue Lagoon at 3.5 sq km of Comino Island is incredible. Comino has the bluest water in the Mediterranean sea. One can see an azure paradise of the Blue Lagoon from far by ferry. The sea pool makes it perfect for swimming, snorkelling or diving as no boat can enter into the sister island of Malta. The Comino history is best known for its hideout for pirates to raid Gozo or to escape from its enemy.

The turquoise sea colour was also used as shooting scenes for some famous movies – Troy (2004) and Swept Away (2002). Hence, Comino Blue Lagoon is one place where you like to chill if you are in for some water sports. If you are not there for swimming but merely want to witness its splendour for a short while, you can take a ferry and proceed to Gozo. Take note that the Comino Island is a highly touristic place. You have been warned, though.

Sightseeing in Gozo

Gozo is another island which I would term it similar to Malta where there are more things to do and see other than the beach. It is the second-largest island next to Malta. You can visit the UNESCO site, Citadella at Victoria, which is the centre of Gozo. There are many more hidden gems at Gozo which is worth exploring and will wow your day away. If a city tour is what you fancy instead of swimming and sunbathing, then you can go Gozo directly and spend an entire day there.
