Gozo is blessed with a magnificently rugged and picturesque coastline when viewed from the sea via boat trip, and because the island is so small, much of it is navigable in one outing.
Many different boat trip options are available, as are the many reputable boat companies to choose from, so a boat trip is really an essential part of any visit if you’ve got your sea legs. Indeed, a well-worn sentiment around the island is that if you’ve seen Gozo from the sea, you can say that you’ve truly seen Gozo.
All types of boat trip customer are catered for on the island of Gozo. Seasoned seafarers can hire their own boat to self-drive, fishing enthusiasts can embark on specially planned jaunts, and you can also snorkel out at sea, combining all of these with relaxation and sightseeing, of course.
The main business of Gozitan boat trips is sightseeing cruises around the island’s coastline, which consists of a multitude of natural wonders which demand viewing from sea level. Of these, the famous Azure Window, which was the setting for scenes in Game of Thrones and the original Clash of the Titans, was one of the most notable but has very recently gone – destroyed by corrosion and unnaturally high winds.
Coastal marvels still visible on your Gozitan boat trip are numerous, however. Amongst these is the cave entrance to the Inland Sea, Fungus Rock, and the Wied il-Mielaħ Window, similar in formation to the departed Azure Window. There are also numerous historic coastal buildings and watch towers such as Giordan Lighthouse and the Dwejra Tower to see, helping make a boat trip around Gozo a visual delight for all involved.
