Please Note: This Event is Fully Booked.

All aboard and let’s set sail to Filfla, the flat-topped islet swathed in silence and mystery!

On the 25th August, Heritage Malta is inviting you to once again discover some of Filfla’s secrets, as recounted by David Cilia, Curator of the Natural History Unit.

Discover how Filfla was formed, the etymology of its name, the island’s allure for pirates, its use as a bombing target, the creatures and plants that now call Filfla their home, and countless other facts during the boat ride along the eastern and southern coast of Malta. And keep your eyes skinned – sightings of seabirds, turtles and dolphins are possible!

The boat departs from Sliema Ferries at 10:00 hrs sharp and returns at 17:00 hrs. There will be no disembarkation on Filfla and no swimming around it, but on the way back to Sliema the boat will make a stop in the beautiful waters off Delimara for those who feel like a dip.

So slather your sunblock, don a cap, and meet us at 09:30 hrs opposite Burger King, ready for a day of fun and learning. Refreshments and snacks will be available to purchase from the boat’s bar.

Tickets will be available soon at any Heritage Malta museum or site, and online on Store – Heritage Malta.

Heritage Malta members will be requested to present their Heritage Malta membership card before boarding.

Bad weather is your only excuse to be a landlubber!
