  • Relax with a boat tour
  • Enjoy the panoramic views
Full description
Embark on a cruise tour on which you can escape the hustle and bustle of the city and experience the rich biological diversity of Kotor. Visit Boka Bay, and see ancient Romanesque churches and other countless historical monuments. The tour starts at the seaport of Kotor, where a friendly skipper will await travelers on board. Discover the hidden gems of Boka Bay including authentic fishing grounds and villages, antique Romanesque churches, Byzantine palaces, and more historical monuments. Out of many panoramic views, the first one is directly aimed at the islet Our Lady of the Rocks, a site enriched with a mythical legend that goes back more than 5 centuries. Legend has it that it is an artificial island expanded by seamen who discovered the Madonna and Child emblem on a sea rock. Feeling grateful for safe returns after long journeys, the sailors vowed to honor the Holy Mother, so, little by little and stone by stone, they built it into an island that harbors the Lady of the Rocks church. Visitors can listen to stories about the relics while seeing the chapel's many frescoes, paintings, votives, tapestry, and other treasures. Outside, guests can stop for a drink or buy souvenirs or ice cream. The next stop on the journey is Perast. This UNESCO heritage site once housed people from the Illyrian, Roman, and Christian periods. The architecture of the nine defensive towers, Baroque palaces from the 17th and 18th centuries, and distinctive Catholic churches demonstrate the city's affluence during Venetian administration.

Very pleasant boat trip, easy to find the meeting point and everything already organized. The exit is on a motorboat for about ten people, new and comfortable, the skipper gives information on the points of interest. There are two descents to the Madonna of the rocks and to Perast, just to visit both, I was also able to take a swim in the small port of Perast !!

We booked our 11AM tour last minute and we were only 4 on that tour so that felt like a private tour for a very good price. 2h is more than enough to see Lady of the rocks island and Perast. It’s not much to do in Perast but taste the grapefruit wine and climb to the top of the city tower to get the beautiful view.

This was a great ~2 hr jaunt to get out of Kotor & see the Bay & Perast! We thought we would have liked more time in Perast (you get 30 min) & less on the island (also 30 min), but that was our only minor comment. Fee was slightly high, but worth it. Bring sunscreen!!! The reflection from the water will creep up on you. And bring small change - we would have liked to do the church tour and/or get ice cream & only had large bills. But really a nice boat trip overall!
