weather - pros and cons

In summer all cruises are available but the Blue Lagoon is crammed with visitors.

Lean periods between May and June are the best time to take advantage of a cruise. Although the sea is still cold in May, with June being somewhat warmer, however the air temperature is already warm.

With less visitors you will be able to enjoy a more tranquil stay. This is certainly the case during late September and October when visitors are less numerous than May and June.

Cruises are organised depending on the weather conditions. In early mid September, or also later on, it is very common to have some bad weather by way of wind and rain although this tends to be very short lived.

Once the storm passes, the weather turns summery again to late October. By this time the sea temperature starts to becoming more fresh although it is still pleasant to sunbathe.

Comino Malta cruises is another opportunity to explore the beauties of the Maltese archipelago.
