After coming to our location(or getting picked up) our manager will proceed you to your boat and our skippers would be your tour guides and guardian angels for the next 3 hours. Our first stop is artficial Island called "Lady of the Rocks". The church Our Lady of the Rocks is located at the same named island which is located in bay of Boka bay across the beautiful small and peaceful town Perast. This church was raised in 1630 on an artificial island, which was built by fishermen from Perast. According to a legend these fishermen after the shipwreck found on a sea rock an icon of Holy Mother of God with Christ and vowed that right on that spot where the icon was found they will build a church, which will be dedicated to this icon of the Holy Mother of God, protector of sailors and fishermen. That is one of the reasons why you'll see more than 2000 silver plaques dedicated by local sailors and their family. The most precious gift that was ever given to the church is embroidery by a women named Jacinta Kunic which she did with her own hair for 25 years while waiting for her husband to come back .

This island, which is devoted to historical events, is located at the entrance to the Bay of Kotor, between Herceg Novi and Luštica. The fortress was built in the middle of the 19th century by Austro-Hungarian general Lazar Mamula. During the First and Second World War, the fortress was used as a prison, mostly for the ones who can't swim so they can't escape. Last but not least... the Blue Cave- the most beautiful natural phenomenon on the Montenegrin coast.
