This was such an easy, efficient and friendly tour. Located right beside our Viking ship in a little park. I was nervous about booking independently but this couldn’t have been better and they dealt really well with any concerns we had beforehand. Dull day to start so we were so lucky in the Blue Caves to have so much space. Lady on the Rock was good to land at, the submarine tunnel so interesting and DOLPHIN played around our boat on the way back. All within our 3 hours. Can’t recommend highly enough

Excellent, must do if in Kotor Bay. Don’t use any other company. Friendly attentive and above and beyond captain called Eno. Easy to locate pick up spot. Right amount of stays at locations. We went out with a group of 20. Tips, do the 9am trip (later the sea is choppier and a swim may not be guaranteed), sit at the bow or the back of the boat and be ready to swim! After blue cave we sat at the back of the boat and enjoyed sun for the 50 minute trip back.

Beautiful tour with worthwhile goals. Reasonable price in comparison. Easy booking via GetYourGuide. Organization on site also good. Guide friendly and prudent. Boat clean and new. Visiting the Bay of Kotor from the water is absolutely worth it!

It was a great trip! Comfortable boat, great music, awesome captain, and of course, beautiful and stunning views and beaches! Thank you ENO for such great trip! TOTALLY RECOMMENDED!

Great boat. Not crowded. Vasili was great. You need two euros to enter the museum. Well with it. Amazing artifacts.
