Refreshed, we are headed straight towards the Blue Cave passing entire bay and as we go around the famous former prison "Mamula" we reach the open sea. Swimming in fluorescent blue water inside of a natural cave is one of the best attractions of Boka Bay!

From there we sail back to Kotor and make another stop for Yugoslavian military tunnels. Don’t miss another quick jump into clear ink blue water here!

We start from Kotor at 10.00 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.
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 13:30 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.

This cruise was brilliant. We had dolphins follow the boat at one point. Captain and guide excellent.
Excellent trip with 360monte easy online booking. The trip itself was great from start to finish. Our guide DAP I think this was his name was really good at telling us the history of Boka bay as we travelled around. The boat was new and really comfortable. The Captain and his mate were friendly and helpful. It was really relaxing day
Staff were wonderful, loved all the swimming and the sparkling wine was a great touch!
We really enjoyed the beautiful and relaxing day bay cruise trip fromKotor. Throughout the day there we visited beautiful swimming spots and were nurtured with towels, drinks, fresh fruit and Rakija. Our guide and host was extensively elaborating on the history of this area and it’s ancient buildings. We really loved the visit to the Church of the lady of the Rocks although the museum visit was of limited interest. If you’re searching for a day trip with a very caring and warm crew, just book it. you’re searching for a beautiful
An amazing day spent on a beautiful boat, checking out beautiful spors with an awesome and attentive crew.
I travel often and this was one of the best tours/trips I’ve taken. The guys from monte were awesome, informative, and overall fun to be around. The boat was a very comfortable catamaran. Would recommend this tour to my friends!
Fantastic day!! The guide and captain engaged with everyone, making sure everyone had a good time. I opted not to go to blue cave so captain showed me other less touristy cave which was really cool! I can’t say enough good things about the day & crew. Worth every penny!
Our one week trip to Montenegro couldn’t get better and completed without Kotor Bay Cruise leading with Nicola. We loved every part of this trip and Nicola was super nice and informative. He is very fun to travel with. I HIGHLY recommend to not miss this incredible experience. Great Job 360montenegro.
We had a most enjoyable day out. Thank you to all who made it happen.
It was an amazing day, the staff is really cool (thank you one more time guys !).
Super sortie nautique avec un équipage prévenant et compétent
We 5 german girls had an fantasTic Full Day boat-Trip with Ognjan and Captain Johnny :) The Organisation & Service was all Good and super friendly!The Trip was FaNtastic and a lifeTime expierence we wont forget. The Guys did a very Great Job with all the Information about Montenegro, Kotor and its surroundings. The best impression of BOka Bay WiTh Swimming stops and lot of fun! Thanks so Much
Fantastic Day! Oggy our guide was amazing. Very attentive and made sure everyone was happy and well informed. Went on other trips with other tour companies, this tour and this company 360 Montenegro won hands down. My husband doesn't even swim and he loved the trip too. Oggy even gave us a lift back to our hotel as we were stuck. Amazing tour guide, amazing tour. Highlight of our holiday.
Highly recommend this tour. A fantastic day, relaxing and fun. Super comfortable boat with the added provision of delicious fruit, water and drinks. Towels also provided. Very well organised and very friendly staff.
This was the best day of my week's holiday in Montenegro, Nina and Nickoli looked after us professionally. This is a very relaxing way to spend a day, we cruised to the Blue Cave where we were transferred to a smaller boat to get in, I found it to be too busy in the cave for my liking with lots of other boats but you get the opportunity to swim in this beautiful place briefly before being transported back to Zanjice Beach for a lovely lunch and dip in the sea. On the way back we visited the submarine tunnel which is fascinating, you can get off the boat, explore the tunnel and swim in the sea. We were provided with information, a few drinks, fruit and towels during the day and it really is a great way to spend the day and also excellent value for money. On the way back we diverted to Porto Montenegro due to a thunderstorm and they treated us all to a drink at a bar while the storm passed, even so they took us to The Lady of the Rocks on the way back, it was too late to go in but they made the effort to take us. Don't hesitate to book this, you won't regret it!
Very good organization, Ogi and Johny did their best to host us on boat in the best way. It was very pleasant day, we plan to repeat it next time in Montenegro!
It was very cool and nice. Thanx O!
Some days ago, we joined the Kotor Cruise organized by 360Monte, and it was a great experience! The boat had all the comfort needed: nice seat bags or sun beds to relax, and we started with champagne! The boat drove along the beautiful bay, and the guide Orgi explained everything we wanted to know with a lot of passion. During the trip, we could also enjoy all kinds of fruits. Because the engine of the boat was broken, we could swim more in the lake, and the tour ran out of time but this was off course no problem as we arrived in Kotor again with a beautiful sunset! We really enjoyed everything during this trip and would really recommend it to everyone!
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!
Wow, what a fantastic location. I love this place.
Nina was great host and nikola is very handsome captain :)
