Really great, Hornblower is probably the best deal on this place. In any case, everything went well; compared to the other boats, we had a larger lagoon area for us and the best slide. Bring a mask and snorkel or at worst buy it in the boat (20 €) to watch the fish, which are not extraordinary but pretty and varied by 3m deep, it allows you to spend the 4.5 hours pleasantly once you have made 10 dives and 10 slides. The only downside to which Hornblower can do nothing: on the island, a smart guy sells pineapples with liqueur in the fruit. We found empty pineapples all over the rocks with the straws, it was ugly. If I was mayor of the island, I'd fire that salesman or have him pick up his customers' trash.

Wonderful experience guide also in Italian even if not reported in the offer and what about the 5 euro service that takes you to gozo to say the least splendid. absolutely recommended and definitely if i ever go back to malta i would stay with them again

Sunscreen is a must, otherwise your partner can eat lobster in the evening. Great trip. For less money, public transport simply won't get you where you need to be.

Superb boat trip in a magnificent site!! The children (young and old) were delighted and spent the time in the water or tobogganing!!

Great boat, small and friendly. The drinks on board are not expensive and the staff is very nice
