Full description
Start the tour from the port of Kotor, the furthest point in the Bay of Boka. Board the boat and set off on your tour of 4 different connecting bays - Kotor, Risan, Tivat, and Herceg Novi. After cruising for about 1-hour pass by the notorious former prison of Mamula. Find out about how this historic site witnessed the horror of 2 world wars, first being used as a prison and then as a concentration camp. Admire the imposing round shape of the building and learn about its history.

Then, continue out into the Adriatic sea towards the seemingly endless horizon. Head towards the glowing Blue Cave, where you can cool off with a swimming break. Marvel at how the combination of sunlight, seawater, and the limestone rocks creates the illusion of fluorescent sparks as you move your body. Put on your snorkeling gear and dive as you experience this incredible natural phenomenon.

Next, return to the bay, enjoying panoramic views of houses that line the shore displaying original Venetian and modern architecture. Stop again to explore a man-made network of submarine ex-Yugoslavian tunnels. Learn about the role of the tunnels in the war providing underground shelter for massive submarines and ships. Admire the rest of the island which is abundant with lush vegetation and clean beaches and is now a UNESCO-protected region. Proceed from the island back towards Kotor bay enjoying the panoramic views of Porto Montenegro - a luxury town and exclusive marina known to be a yachting paradise.

After this, head over to the most visited island in Montenegro – the majestic Our Lady of the Rocks Island. Discover how this piece of land has provided mystery, religion, and hope for many local peoples during the region's turbulent maritime history. Stop here for 40 minutes as your tour guide regales you with the tale of Our Lady in detail and to visit the church and museum. Finally, return back to Kotor, taking in the panoramic views of the town of Pearst and the rising mountains of Kotor Bay along the way.
