During this 3-hour tour you will learn Montenegro’s history from the water and gain a first-hand appreciation of the close connection the people have with the sea.
Enjoy panoramic views of Kotor Bay with its quaint fishing villages, medieval churches and more nestled at the base of sheer cliffs.

About Boka Bay
No matter whether you enter Boka by land or by sea - your experience will the same - Boka will fascinate you! It looks as if the mountains have cracked and let the sea in. This is the southernmost fjord in Europe. The high mountains bend over the thin coastline thus protecting it from the severe climate from the north. That is why Boka is an oasis of Mediterranean vegetation: agave, palm, mimosa, oleander, kiwi, pomegranate, medicinal herbs. When its peaks are covered with snow, the roses bloom in the foothills.
The church Gospa od Skrpjela (Our Lady if the Rock)
is located at the same named island which is located in bay of Boka Kotorska 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.
The Blue Grotto
is one of the most attractive in a series of caves located on the peninsula Lustica, situated between the bay Zlatna luka (Golden Harbour) and cape Mokra gora (Wet Mountain). It is 5.7 nm far from Herceg Novi.
