Rent a boat from Bluewaves

Rent a boat from Malta (full or half day)

Why not rent a self-drive boat for a full or half day? It is well worth the spend.

You do not need a licence to rent a boat from us. Our team will give you a professional safety and operating briefing. This includes a short practice run before you go out so you will be confidently handling the craft in no time at all. Self-drive boats are the perfect way to visit Comino at your own leisure and we will help you select the best one for your group.

To get the most from your day out on the water you will get our insiders tips and suggestions of where to go, taking into consideration the weather and sea conditions in Malta on the day. Then off you go!

It won’t take long to find a glorious spot to drop anchor so you can kick back and enjoy the warm water, snorkelling and lazing around on the boat. You will be grateful for the shade from the canopy which all Bluewaves self drive-boats have – the Maltese sun can be relentless. Note: bring lots of drinking water and plenty of sunscreen!

Around Comino ferry by Bluewaves

Take an ‘around the island’ Ferry to Comino

If you would rather just be a passenger but still want to experience the magic of the Blue Lagoon, take a Comino ferry from Malta. Our Comino ferry trips to the Blue Lagoon are not just your average water-taxi ride, they are scenic tours of the Comino coastline. We get to show off all the unique historic and natural landmarks en route to the Blue Lagoon, stopping at some of the caves along the way. PLUS you get a full two hours to do your own thing.

Once the ferry boat docks at the Blue Lagoon, you are your own master. There are a handful of snack bars servicing the beach, you can hire deckchairs, lockers and umbrellas or get the epic ‘pina colada in a pineapple’ from the Pineapple guy.

The Blue Lagoon is shallow and it is an easy swim to Cominotto if you prefer less crowded swimming spots. You will not want to leave the Blue Lagoon (ever!) but a hike off the beaten track is definitely well worth the time.

Hiking trails take you past an abandoned palace to St. Mary’s Tower, 80 meters above sea level, from which you get to see sweeping views of Malta and Gozo. Film buffs might recognise this from the 2002 Hollywood movie “The Count of Monte Cristo” where it doubles for the infamous Chateau d’If. 

Don’t miss the tiny chapel, the one man police station and the military fortification on the southern side of the island!

The Blue Lagoon Ferry back to Malta will pick you up from the dock at the specified hour, make sure you are on time as it can get busy.

Sun kissed, salty and satisfied you can enjoy the sea breeze and take a last, lingering view of Comino as you head back to Malta.

whether you want to hire a boat or take a boat trip to get out of the hustle and bustle to explore the coast and caves of Malta’s rugged little sister island, Comino.
