Here we go again! Our favourite summer adventure is on again! Join our LIFE Arċipelagu Garnija team on one of our sunset boat rides to Ta’ Ċenċ to enjoy one of Malta’s most spectacular natural phenomena – the Scopoli’s Shearwater ‘rafting’ on the water before returning to their nests in the cliffs. Prepare your binoculars and cameras for an amazing experience!

*Once again this year one of the trips (Friday 26th July) will depart from, and return to Gozo (Mġarr Harbour). This will proceed ONLY if the trip is fully-booked; if it is not the trip will depart from, and return to Marfa Jetty like the other three.
