With this unique Kotor boat tour we discover Boka Bay at its finest and most trustworthy way. Beautiful scenery with high mountains above the water, beaches, caves and historical sites will take your breath away and revile the story that started back in ancient times.
We start from Kotor at 9.00 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.
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 Montenegro ir Blue Cave Kotor!
The Blue cave Montenegro 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.
For real experience of the cave, we recommend swimming from the boat and using snorkeling masks to explore the world beneath the surface of the water. For unsecure swimmers, we will provide life jackets.
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, shake it to create some glooming water around!
It’s already 11:30 am and right time to head back to the Bay for some more attractions!
First one is former military tunnels - strategically hidden in rocks, where Yugoslavian navy stored their torpedoes and submarines during the war.
Our captain will approach these tunnels as much as the boat allows (maybe even enter inside if the sea is calm), so we can admire this historical site from closer range.
As it is already 1.30 pm and right time for lunch break!
We disembark at Porto Montenegro - beautiful, modern luxury town and a yachting paradise within the bay of Tivat. This gives a total new perspective of Montenegro, so after lunch break, don’t miss to take a look around this “poshy” streets.
Now, time to continue our Kotor boat tour to the most visited isle of Boka Bay! Our Lady of the Rocks!
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.
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.
