Gozo Channel was formed in 1979, to maintain, develop, and operate a sea transport service to and from Malta, Gozo and elsewhere which, by the carriage of passengers, freight and mail, will serve the national economy and interest of the Maltese Islands. The Company’s first vessels to operate the route were the M/V Ghawdex (purchased in early 1979) the M/V Melitaland and M/V Mgarr (both purchased in early 1980). Initially, these vessels performed an average of eight (8) round trips per day.
With diversification in mind, a seasonal service to Sicily was introduced in June 1981 with the M/V Ghawdex. The Company operated up to three (3) weekly trips to Siracuse, Catania and eventually Pozzallo and the service became very popular among local Maltese and Gozotan wishing to spend a day or more in Sicily. The service was discontinued in 1995. As the traffic between Malta and Gozo increased, more vessels were introduced into the service to cope with the demand, and by 1990 the Company was operating five (5) vessels, including a fast ferry service between Mgarr, Sliema and Sa Maison, and performing an average of 27 round trips per day. In that year the Company carried 1.93 million passengers and 370,000 cars.
Today, Gozo Channel has become one of the leading local maritime companies in Malta, with over 200 employees. On average, the company performs 20,000 trips a year, and ferries around 4.1 million passengers and 1.2 million vehicles annually between the two Islands. As shown by its history, over the coming years, the Company will continue to strive to improve its service in line with the development of Gozo and the demands of its customers.

Known traditionally as the Sliema Ferries, this mode of transport offers regular sea transport services between Sliema and Valletta throughout the day and night (NOTE: night service occurs mostly during the summer moths). This mode of transport is relatively cheap and saves precious times as it takes you to Valletta in just under 15minutes. Moreover you have the benefits of enjoying the sea breeze whilst enjoying a unique perspective of UNESCO World Heritage City – VALLETTA. On your way back to Sliema – you can stop and enjoy the surroundings, the unique and traditional boat houses dug deep into the Valletta fortifications, whilst sipping a cool drink at one of the bars situated next to the ferry boat mooring place.”.
The Three Cities Valletta Ferry Service - operates from Valletta to the Three Cities and Vice Versa, again giving the commuter an easy and relaxed way to the historic Three Cities, the seat and nucleus of Malta’s urban and industrial heritage.
