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.
