I misunderstood the speed of the boat which can go 8 knots tops. Simon was kind to work with me before the trip but the captain on our trip was Derrick. The cons were that he was less responsive than I hoped—giving little or no explanation and anchoring the boat a bit further from destinations than would have been convenient and the slow boat took most of our only full day in Malta just getting to blue lagoon. . The pros were that Derrick took us to two of the most gorgeous spots I’ve ever seen on earth and I’ll never forget the beauty and adventure of this day.
