Blue Cave Adventure

Your Boka Bay tour begins at the city park, near the seaport of Kotor. Here you will find a friendly captain waiting to make sure you're seated safely and comfortably for an enthralling cruise around the Boka Bay.

Your first stop is at an islet in the middle of Boka Bay, which holds the name of the church that's settled on it: Our Lady of the Rocks. There are many legends that tell of this phenomenon, but the most accepted one describes the discovery of an icon of the Holy Mother of God with Christ by seamen. In remembrance of this occurrence, local fishermen promised to throw rocks at the same spot where the Lady had been found, thus expanding the surface of the space and creating a charming artificial islet, where visitors can witness the church that's been built in Her honor. The inside of the church dates back from the 15th century and stores countless Baroque paintings (from Montenegrin, as well as Italian artists), votive tablets and tapestry. Outside the church is a small gift shop where you can purchase something that will remind you of this great visit.

After Our Lady of the Rocks, your journey continues from the Bay of Kotor to Tivat Bay, where you'll pass by the exclusive marina for mega yachts: Porto Montenegro, a place that's jam-packed with sailing boats, racers, sailboats, cruisers, luxurious yachts, and makes for a cool spot for photos.

Next is Herceg Novi Bay, a coastal town settled at the entrance of Boka Bay, which is rich with culture and especially known for its Byzantine and Eastern architectural styles. Your cruise will also lead you to the infamous island Mamula, which was once a concentration camp in World War II. The sight of it will both curdle your blood and blow you away with its abundance of natural beauty and rich history. There's even more in store with a visit to the ex-submarine military base.

To conclude the trip, your captain will take you to the Blue Cave, an ideal spot for a refreshing dip in the mesmerizing nuances of its blue surroundings. Blue Cave, accessible only by boat, is renowned for its crystal-clear water, the cave that envelops its blue waters, and the serenity of its natural setting.

Church, Submarine Cave, and Blue Cave Amazing!

Enders and David were excellent, warm, engaging hosts. They anticipated our needs and made the trip comfortable and enjoyable. The water at our cave stop was clear and warm, with coral and many fish. Their boat was roomy. The climate, topography, and history of the area is really spectacular. Old Town Kotor and Perast are quaint and dramatically picturesque. The food is fresh, tasty, and affordable. I am SO so glad our ship stopped in their country!

Blue Cave Adventure

Our party of six thoroughly enjoyed the Blue Cave Adventure. While the cooler weather precluded us from taking a dip in the Adriatic, the experience of the cave itself, the high speed boat ride, the submarine tunnels and the beautiful waters was fantastic. Our pilot Eno (along with his very enjoyable play list) kept us entertained throughout. Great tour!

Eno is amazing!
May 11, 2022
This excursion was absolutely the highlight of our 14 day trip to Europe. Montenegro is stunning and our guide, Eno, was so kind and informative and engaging. Lady of the Rock was so fun to explore and the Blue Caves were AMAZING! Too cold to swim, of course, but we were so happy to be able to drive into them. Thank you thank you Eno and crew!
