All hands on deck! Heritage Malta presents the Harbour Cruise – World War II, in honour of World Ocean Day on Thursday, 8 June 2023. Join us on a historical journey through the harbours flanking the victorious city of Valletta, the main target of Axis air raids during World War II.

Led by our Senior Curator for Fortifications, Matthew Balzan, and Head of Underwater Cultural Heritage Unit, Prof. Timmy Gambin, this cruise will re-trace the dramatic history of the Second Great Siege of Malta, which transformed the area between 1940 and 1943.

Imagine the bombs raining down on the fortifications and military installations of our beleaguered capital and learn more about the underwater heritage that stud the seabed.

Tickets are available now at only €17 for adults, €15 for seniors and students, and €10 for children and Heritage Malta members. Presentation of HM membership cards will be requested on the day.

As seats are limited, we highly recommend booking your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment. So gather your friends and family and make sure you join us at 18:00 at the meeting point, Sliema Ferries, opposite Marks and Spencer.

Tickets can be purchased at any of our museums and sites or online here.
