Hey Explorers, today we are going on a sea exploration with Seahorse Cruises!

What an amazing experience is waiting for us guys 🙂

Departing from Bugibba everyday on Summer, Seahorse Cruises offers you an unforgettable experience on the Turkish Gullet!

Meeting point is the Bugibba Jetty and at 11am we set sail!

We are welcomed by the Capitan Owen and his crew on board. This beautiful wooden boat make me feel already like a Pirate sailing to the Caribbean Blue Lagoon… Comino I’m coming!!!

Cruising by St Paul’s Bay Islands we had the opportunity to see them from different angles, discovering the white rocks by Selmun.

Then we passed by Mellieha Bay and the “Ahrax” of Mellieha, we visited the “Smugglers Cove” and the “Dragonara Cave“… spectacular!

After this breathtaking view we passed through the channel between Malta and Comino, where we saw the Comino fish farms and Santa Maria Tower, where the “Count of Monte Cristo” was filmed. Then we entered in Mgarr port of Gozo where some took the option to explore the Sister Island.

Our cruise showed us the wonders of the Mediterranean Sea and its shimmering on the water ridge, when touched by the Summer sun.

We passed by the only hotel in Comino, the Comino Hotel and its little bay, St Thomas Bay.

It’s a gift to have the possibility to stay in the Comino Hotel, if the reader consider that Comino only measures 3.5 square kilometres (1.4 sq mi) in area. Its population is only of three residents, so that why Comino is note for its tranquillity and isolation, making it a bird sanctuary and a nature reserve.

However a stop in Gozo is always appealing, Nick and I moved on towards Santa Maria Bay, a lovely tiny sandy beach, unique in Comino and surely more reserved (in fact, it is quite inaccessible if you consider to walk under this sun from the Blue Lagoon, unless you choose to get in a boat tour).

The bay is completely safe… The Police Station guarantees it!
Actually the policeman together with a priest commute from the nearby island of Gozo, to render their services to the local population and summertime visitors.

While we were splashing in that crystal blue water of Santa Maria Bay we met Noel, an artist also enjoying the trip and capturing his memories using watercolours. Those blue, the ocher and red of the fragile rocks burned by the sun and the green of the Maltese garigue will be told by the impressions of Noel forever.

Our Seahorse exploration is now taking us to the famous Blue Lagoon for swimming and snorkeling…

If you go to the Blue Lagoon expect to see it packed, in summer it attracts 5000 visitors per day!

However taking a boat is a way to explore the island and the sea and when the crowd becomes too overwhelming, you have the possibility to go back and liying down on the desk or enjoy a swimming close to it.

I’ll let the pictures show you the beauty of the Blue Lagoon… Enjoy it!

We were suprised to see a Icecream boat… that’s a great idea!

One of the views that I liked the most was the so called “Elephant’s Head” rock, it is so majestic that you feel like to bow your head to that magnificent piece of nature.

We were the last boat returning to Bugibba arriving at 6pm.

After that great swim in the Blue Lagoon, the view of Santa Maria Bay,

the caves and the rocks we were definetly full of beautiful moments and emotions, blessed to have had the opportunity to live this fantastic
