During the summer season the ferry travels with continuous trips from early morning to midnight.

During the night, the trips are less frequent but a service is offered nonetheless. It is important to check the time on the schedule or ask before you leave for Gozo in the morning.

The journey from Cirkewwa to Mgarr takes around 25 minutes and vice versa. You can board the boat directly with your rented car.

The Malta ferry terminal is at the far end of the island being Cirkewwa, so traveling time from your hotel may be substantial depending on where you are staying.

How to pay for the Gozo Ferry
Purchasing of Ferry Tickets

On arrival at the Cirkewwa terminal you go straight to the car queue close to the ferry. No tickets are bought from Malta.

They are paid only when you are returning from Gozo. While in the car you enter the queue at the Mgarr terminal and pay at the ticket booth and proceed to the parking bays ready to embark. 

Then proceed with your car to the waiting area. All passengers can remain in the car whilst boarding the boat. However once on board it is advisable to go upstairs to the lounge area where you find toilet facilities, cafeteria and a newsagent with many useful items ideal for those who are on holiday.

Should you prefer to embark on foot, you may do so through the terminal.
