Kotor: Blue Cave Adventure and Beach Transfer

5. Kotor: Blue Cave Adventure and Beach Transfer

Enjoy 6 hours of fun with our Full-Day Trip of the Bay of Kotor, where you can indulge in panoramic sightseeing of the bay’s arena, visit the marvelous church, Our Lady of the Rocks, feel the distressing emanation of the island Mamula, and go for a swim in the luminous Blue Cave. The tour ends (or for some of you - starts) at Žanjice beach where our skipper is leaving you to enjoy the natural beauties of this area. Coming to Montenegro and Kotor during peak season can sometimes be an uncalled annoyance if you are not properly organized. On top of that, it is known that Kotor doesn’t have many beach areas to brag about. Just a few of them make it on the list of sandy or pebble beaches, with the rest being docks for boats, racers, yachts, and other water vehicles in which vicinity you surely don’t want to dip your body in. For reasons like these we offer our passengers the opportunity to hop on a speedboat with us and cruise through the splendid region of Boka bay, right as we transport you to some of the most amazing beaches - considered hidden gems of the bay. This boat trip includes breathing in the fresh breeze of the Boka Bay while enjoying a plethora of panoramic views. Apart from the natural splendor that’s encircling us, there will also be a lot of stories and legends to listen to; the mythical genesis of the artificial island Our Lady of the Rocks, a horror-packed history of the island Mamula, as well as testimonies on how we used the gifts of nature to camouflage our former military base to shelter our submarines during WWII. And last (but not least important) on our agenda is a short swimming session in the radiantly colored Blue Cave that you can use to refresh yourself from the trip. This is the part you’ve been waiting for. After we checked everything from our list of places to visit, we’ll approach Žanjice and drop you off to savor your time at the beach.
