DescriptionBlue Cave Adventure Your Boka Bay tour begins at the city park, near the seaport of Kotor. Here you will find a friendly captain waiting to make sure you're seated safely and comfortably for an enthralling cruise around the Boka Bay. Your first stop is at an islet in the middle of Boka Bay, which holds the name of the church that's settled on it: Our Lady of the Rocks. There are many legends that tell of this phenomenon, but the most accepted one describes the discovery of an icon of the Holy Mother of God with Christ by seamen. In remembrance of this occurrence, local fishermen promised to throw rocks at the same spot where the Lady had been found, thus expanding the surface of the space and creating a charming artificial islet, where visitors can witness the church that's been built in Her honor. The inside of the church dates back from the 15th century and stores countless Baroque paintings (from Montenegrin, as well as Italian artists), votive tablets and tapestry. Outside the church is a small gift shop where you can purchase something that will remind you of this great visit. After Our Lady of the Rocks, your journey continues from the Bay of Kotor to Tivat Bay, where you'll pass by the exclusive marina for mega yachts: Porto Montenegro, a place that's jam-packed with sailing boats, racers, sailboats, cruisers, luxurious yachts, and makes for a cool spot for photos. Next is Herceg Novi Bay, a coastal town settled at the entrance of Boka Bay, which is rich with culture and especially known for its Byzantine and Eastern architectural styles. Your cruise will also lead you to the infamous island Mamula, which was once a concentration camp in World War II. The sight of it will both curdle your blood and blow you away with its abundance of natural beauty and rich history. There's even more in store with a visit to the ex-submarine military base. To conclude the trip, your captain will take you to the Blue Cave, an ideal spot for a refreshing dip in the mesmerizing nuances of its blue surroundings. This place, accessible only by boat, is renowned for its crystal-clear water, the cave that envelops its blue waters, and the serenity of its natural setting.
