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.

Amazing Tour!

Our skillful Captain took us to the Blue Cave first - due to impending change in weather - and we were the only tour that day to get in to see it! This was a beautiful, relaxing morning on the water. And it got back early enough so we could tour downtown on our own. Highly recommended.

Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate the day of our tour. Our guide still provided a wonderful trip; he made sure we were safe and made changes to accommodate the limited amount of time we could spend in the cave. He was very supportive when I was the only one of twelve guests who braved getting in the water once in the cave, which btw, was so worth it!!!!!! You must plan on jumping in and experience the beauty of a blue cave adventure!

Fun Outing

Pick up is a 5 minute walk from port. It’s through a small park on the water. Tour takes you first to Our Lady of the Rocks where you are able to get off and walk around the small island and tour the church. Our guide brought us into submarine tunnels. We went into a cave with the crystal blue waters. It was surprising how many boats were in the cave. We were not able to swim in the cave due to the about of boats and we’e brought to the side of the caves in a cove. We were able to swim for 15 minutes. They did have a few goggles to swim with, but you had to share them. They provided complimentary water on the way back. The boat ride was awesome. Definitely try to sit on the front sun deck! Eno and Neno were great!!!

Blue Cave

Once we got to the island, we were able to find our tour easily. We got checked in and boarded the boat for the day. This is a boat tour so make sure that you take the appropriate precautions for motion sickness if you struggle with that. The time at the cave is short-lived and you swim right outside of the cave. Still a very neat tour and a great way to see a lot of the island.

What a relaxing, informative excursion. We enjoyed the Blue Caves and traveling around this beautiful area. Our guides were fun, knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend this experience to those traveling to Montenegro. It was great to learn more about Kotor. I would give this company 5 stars!

Exciting excursion!

This was amazing! The ride out was a bit bumpy as the swells increased as we approached the ocean. Inside the cave it was gorgeous but took some time for us to get out because of the swells. Our driver was very nice and even circled around to retrieve my sun visor when it blew off my head. The ride of a lifetime!
