Full description
Your 8-hour excursion begins in Kotor, Budva or Tivat. From here, your first stop of the day will be Bijela, where you will get the chance to have a refreshing swim. Visit the church and museum on the island before heading to the Blue Cave. Along the way, pass the entire length of UNESCO-protected Kotor Bay, before finally reaching the open sea. 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, travel around the island to carefully observe the wild interlace of history and nature. As you sail out from the calm waters of the bay, reach the open sea and arrive at the most attractive cave in the region – its majesty, the Blue Cave! Take a break at Porto Montenegro for lunch and some time to enjoy this picturesque town. From here, begin the sail back to Kotor, you can use this opportunity to have another swimming break at the deep waters of the bay, before dressing up for the visit to the church at the island Our Lady of the Rock. During the return trip, enjoy stunning views of majestic mountains, caves, beaches and historical sites. You’ll also take in a gorgeous sunset.

    Best relaxation

    The guide was very charismatic, which created a wonderful atmosphere on the ship. He knows the lecture material well (and dilutes it with funny stories, which allows him to learn new information and get a dose of fun), at the same time, he organizes practical aspects of the excursion (swimming; approach to the museum). it was closing, but he agreed that they would give us some more time). There was a feeling that this is an old good friend! I paid attention to everyone! Thanks! I will definitely recommend it to my friends

    This morning we boarded a large motorized trimaran. We were met by Luka with crew who was our guide throughout the day. He was amazing, service minded and he was very read and informative about Monte Negro's history. We were given specific reports on sea battles, church history and clan empire. On top of that, we had a fantastic day in the sun, lunch on a beautiful beach with swimming in the blue cave. The day included several bathing stops including a submarine dock. Luka was observant all the time and asked if we needed anything, answered all questions happily and made us feel very well cared for. A fantastic guy and the best guide we have ever had (and we have been on many excursions). Anders and Lotta Åhlen
