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.

Malta reviews

  • "Passengers are not Sheep"

    The ferry was great and it's a lovely journey, but treatment of foot passengers at pozzallo is appalling. Herded into pens in the middle of the parking lot and left there for an hour, with no toilets, shelter or water.

  • "Very pleasant crossing disputes rough sea"

    The crossing from pozzalo to Valletta was easy . It had been very rough earlier but calmed down for our crossing . Comfortable in club class . Had some tea and a sandwich . Slept for a bit the boat went from side to side and up and down but not bad at all .

  • "comfortable environmental friendly way to come to Malta"

    Taking the ferry is a nice and - compared to the plane - a very environmental friendly opportunity to reach Malta. The trip with the ferry was very nice. There is a lot of space and it is so much more comfortable than a plane. Only negative point: on a holiday and on Sundays there is no public transport connection from Catania (Sicily) to the port in Pozzallo (Siciliy). Paid a fortune for a taxi. Apparently there are buses you can book in advance but I never got that information, only afterwards. If you could improve your information policy about that, Firtu Ferries, that would be great. As I saw most of the passengers use the ferry without a car, so they need to come to the port somehow also on a Sunday. Also some more plug sockets would be great.
