We start from Kotor at 10.30 am and sail along the bay followed by the beautiful scenery and refreshing breeze.
After 20 minutes we pass the most complete baroque town of Perast, along with two famous islands Our Lady of Rocks (which we will visit on our way back) and St. George.
The best way to cool down is to have a stop in the middle of the bay and dive into the crystal ink blue water near Bijela.
Now refreshed and relaxed, we continue towards the mouth of the bay, in the distance viewing towns of Tivat and Herceg Novi.
Soon, on the horizon, at the very entrance of Boka Bay we spot former fortified prison and concentration camp called „Mamula“. As the entrance to the island is no longer allowed, we’ll be passing all around to carefully seize the wild interlace of history and nature.
Former prison Mamula
Originally, “Mamula” was never made to be a prison, but a defensive fort, being located in the middle of the “bay mouth” and having the best blocking position. However, in the World War II Italians converted the fort into a concentration camp well known for brutal torture and cruelty to prisoners.
As we sail out from the calm waters of the bay, we reach out the open sea and soon arrive to most attractive cave in region – its majesty, the Blue Cave!
The cave has two openings. Through the larger entrance a boat and smaller vessels can enter the cave and allow tourists to attend the incredible game of light and water in the interior.
These shades of blue will hardly be able to see anywhere in the world, and clear illuminating water calls you to dive into this atmosphere of this natural theatre.
Don’t miss to be part of this blue world, jump in to create some glooming water around!
It’s already 14:00 h and right time to regain energy with lunch break at Žanjice beach.
After relaxing and necessary lunch break, we are heading back to Kotor with few more stops to come.
First one is former military tunnels - strategically hidden in rocks, where Yugoslavian navy stored their torpedoes and submarines during the war.đ>
Our captain will approach these tunnels as much as the boat allows (maybe even enter inside if the sea is calm), so you can explore this historical site.
We’ll use this opportunity to have another swim break at the deep waters of the bay, before we dress up for the visit to the church at the island Our Lady of Rock, as this is our next stop.
According to the legend, the islet was made over the centuries by local seamen after finding the icon of Madonna and the Child on the rock in the sea on July 22, 1452. Over time, the islet gradually emerged from the sea. It took 100 years to build the isle and 100 more to complete the church. Now, Our Lady of Rocks is protector of all seamen who come to Boka Bay.
Your tour guide will make sure to inform you about more details about the island, church and museum.
Inside of the Church at the island
Next to island of Our Lady, there is a natural one, St. George with a church from 9th century and actual monks living isolated, hence the entrance is strictly forbidden for tourists.
While sailing on glittering water with wonderful scenery around, we don’t miss opportunity to catch a perfect sunset photo before ending our journey.
As we approach our disembark point, we’ll pass old beautiful villages on the opposite side of the Bay: Stoliv, Prčanj and Muo.

Awesome day! Ognjen and the Captain were amazing and looked after us from start to finish. The sights were sensational and we visited each one at the perfect time. Excellent value for money :)
We had an amazing time! Great hosts, super accommodating
All good! It only stretched a bit from the end - but then again we were on a holiday and not kn a hurry :)
Terrific trip - very helpful but relaxed guide. We spent a good amount of time at the various locations, and the scenery was spectacular. Boat wasn't crowded and felt like ample room for everything. The only minor annoyance was with the Blue Cave -- there were far too many boats in there and swimming felt quite dangerous as some of the skippers of other boats seemed uncertain where and how to maneuver. Not sure what you could do about this, other than perhaps trying to go to the cave at a less busy time, if that's even possible during high season!
Due to the weather (the storm we experienced) we missed Blue Cave but the rest and especially Ogi’s hospitality was outrageous I already adviced a friend for their visit in August!!! Thanks Ogi :)
We were expecting a good trip, what we hot was an amazing trip! Nina and Nikoli were fantastic and their knowledge of the area enhanced our experience. 11 out of 10!
Nina was great host and nikola is very handsome captain :)
