WHERE THE FUN STARTS IN GOZO
We'll help you find the easiest and best way to us
Your kayak tour launch location is the Mgarr Marina
This is one of our alternate locations. Please check your confirmation message to confirm that this is the correct location to meet us. We start from this location if conditions at Hondoq are not favourable or by special request.
Getting to Gozo from Malta
Car and passenger ferry
Gozo Channel Ferry departs from Cirkewwa in the north of Malta and runs every 30-45 minutes. The crossing time is about half an hour. There's no need to buy a ticket in Malta, you pay for the round trip ticket when leaving Gozo. The ferries can get quite busy for cars on weekends and public holidays.
Passenger only ferry
There is a passenger only fast ferry that departs from Valletta and goes directly to Gozo. This ferry takes about 45 minutes. You can check the schedule and book tickets here via the Gozo Fast Ferry website or you can purchase your tickets at the terminal in Valletta or Gozo before departure.
How to get to the Mgarr Marina
We sometimes use the Mgarr Marina as an alternate launch location for our Comino tour, or if we are planning a trip to our island's picturesque and idyllic bay, Mgarr Ix-Xini. If we launch from here you can find us at the public slipway in the Mgarr Marina which is just a 10 minute walk from the Gozo Ferry Terminal.
Parking at the Mgarr Marina can be tricky because daily commuters to Malta use this area for parking. So we suggest arriving early as you may take some time to find a spot.
