Hop aboard our boat and experience the rich history and culture, as well as the undeniable beauty of Boka Bay. This tour includes cruising around the Bay of Kotor, in which you will enjoy panoramic views of fishing villages, churches, and many more historical monuments.
Cruise around the Boka Bay
The extensive 3-hour Boka bay tour begins at the city park, near the seaport of Kotor. There’s a friendly captain who will await you and make sure you’re seated safely and comfortably for what’s planned to be an enthralling cruise around Boka Bay.
Our 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 speak of the phenomenon, but the most accepted one talks about the discovery of an icon of the Holy Mother of God with the 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 to 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 get something that will remind you of this great visit.
After Our Lady of the Rocks, our journey continues from the bay of Kotor to Tivat Bay where you can see 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, rich with culture and especially known for its Byzantine and oriental architectural styles.
Our cruise will also lead us to the infamous island Mamula, which was once a concentration camp in World War II. The sight of it will both curdle your blood while also blowing you away with its abundance in natural beauty and rich history. But even more in-store with our visit to the ex-submarine military base which description we’ll leave up to you.
To conclude the trip we’ve specifically reserved the Blue Cave as a spot for taking a refreshing dip in the mesmerizing nuances of its blue surrounding. This place, 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.
