Add To Plan

Depart from the pier and travel through several Maltese villages in the southern part of the island, where you will find the Blue Grotto. You'll have time for photos of the impressive natural rock structures of Wied iz Zurrieq before boarding your boat to see the caves and spectacular coral formations under the clear blue sea.

After the Blue Grotto boat trip, time at leisure is provided before you drive on to the quaint Marsaxlokk fishing village. Here, you'll have free time for shopping and browsing around the busy market place. The colorful Maltese fishing boats in the harbor make a particularly good subject for photos. Afterwards, you'll drive back to the pier.

Important Note: Guests must be able to walk approximately 600 yards over very uneven surfaces at the cliffs and numerous steps to reach the boat boarding area. The exact itinerary and cave viewing opportunities are dependent upon wind and weather conditions on the day of the excursion. Time permitting; guests will have approximately 45 minutes for shopping and browsing in Marsaxlokk. The amount of walking while in Marsaxlokk is at the guests' discretion. The drive to/from the port area is approximately 30 to 45 minutes, dependent upon traffic conditions.
