Ferries to Malta

One of three islands in the Maltese archipelago, Malta is the perfect place to visit, whether you are a nature lover, history buff, or just want a quiet place to relax. With historical sites that go back as far as the Megalithic times, Malta has so many sites to offer, that you may end up extending your stay. With the other two islands within easy sailing distance, and Malta itself being easily accessible from Italy and from Sicily, with up to 22 ferries running per week across 3 different routes, book now with Direct Ferries, to find the best ferry at the best price for you.

Malta sailing durations and frequency may vary from season to season, and from month to month, so we’d advise doing a live check to get the most up to date information.

Malta Ferry Schedule

The ferry schedule for ferries to Malta can be affected by many different factors, such as seasonal changes, ferry routes, operators, and other such factors, so there is not one single ferry timetable. Indeed, there are up to 22 ferries running per week to Malta, with 21 of these coming from Sicily, and only 1 of these coming from Italy, but here at Direct Ferries, we will always provide you with the most up-to-date information when you are making your booking.

How long does the Ferry to Malta take?

Ferry sail times for ferries that run to Malta can vary from anywhere between 1 hour and 45 minutes, to 31 hours, and the reason for this is because ferry sail durations can be affected by many different reasons. For example, they can be affected by ferry route, ferry operator, as well as external factors such as weather conditions at the time of sail, so be sure to check before you travel what your expected sail time will be.

Malta Ferry Prices

How much the ferry to Malta will cost is defined by many different aspects, such as time of year, what route you are taking, which ferry operator you are travelling with, how you are travelling, and so on, so there isn’t one exact ferry fare.

  • "Clean socks"

    Well there's not really a choice for this crossing but it's ok. It's clean and spacious, modern and comfortable. The staff are mostly really cheerful which is hard to bear so early in the morning. One steward said "take your feet off the seat" really rudely which I didn't like. I had taken off my boots and had clean socks. I wasn't being a yob and he shouldn't have treated me like one. The cafe was as expensive as one would expect, but I didn't expect the tea to be so bad! There is no point making tea without boiling water, and it should not be offered if there is no boiling water.

  • "Very comfortable and friendly trip"

    We enjoyed our trip and was impressed the ship and facilities. My wife bought coffee and a cake and the member of the crew helped her to carry it to the table. The seats were comfortable and unlike other ferries I have travelled on the windows were clean! You need clean windows to enjoy the experience of entering the harbour at Valletta. It was worth the trip for this experience alone. The Pazzolo shore facilities were a bit basic and when we arrived early we were a bit shocked to find no where to sit. A member of staff noticed this and found two chairs to sit on which was very helpful. That said I do not like to think I am old but I think others are looking at me as a pensioner!! Anyway there are new buildings on the dock they do not seem to be using them?? All in all great ship, great route hopefully Pozallo shore services will improve as the season starts.
