“Malta – Sicily trip is not always a cinch but I do my best to ensure it is comfortable”

When the sea is flat calm, no port in the world is a patch on the Grand Harbour. With Fort St. Angelo and Cottonera on one side, and Fort St. Elmo and the Valletta Waterfront on the other, the Grand Harbour area is magically eye-catching. Every day, the catamaran is in and out of the harbour, en route to Sicily and back.

Walter Muscat, a Maltese captain with the company Virtu Ferries said that the journey between Malta and Sicily was not always a cinch especially during the winter. The Maltese captain added that his biggest concern was ensuring that the journey was comfortable for the passengers and crew on board the catamaran.

Asked whether the catamaran’s emissions complied with international and national laws, Mr Muscat said Virtu Ferries’ catamaran was capable of reaching emissions of less than 0.1% sulphur. He said that according to the law, one should not use more than 0.5%.
