Kotor Bay Boat Tour with a Private Guide

This tour starts with a fun, scenic speed boat ride along past the palaces and hamlets that line the Bay of Kotor shore until you get to the Yugoslav submarine caves on Luštica Peninsula. The caves were used to hide submarines and are now a favourite cliff jumping spot with locals. 

After that you’ll continue out of the Bay of Kotor, where you have Fort Arza on one side, Fort Oštro on the other and Fort Mamula on an island in the middle. From there you cruise along the wild Luštica coastline to one of Montenegro’s top attractions, the Blue Cave. You can get out for a swim in the iridescent blue cave.

Reviews of This Tour

"Ana is amazing and should be your first choice for a guide in and around Kotor! I was with a group of 11 and she made sure all of us had an incredible day seeing Kotor. She arranged for a private boat to take us to the Blue Cave and created a once-in-a-lifetime lunch for all of us right on the water. I know we had the best day of any group on our entire cruise ship, and Ana is the reason. We already want to go back!" - William Montgomery, USA

"Ana was a wonderful guide and she was very flexible with our itinerary making sure we got to see all the sights we were wanting to visit . The blue caves were definitely a highlight and on the way back Ana organized a beautiful platter of local food for us to sample at a nearby village. She was very knowledgeable about Kotor and even though we had limited time for our walking tour of the old city , it was very informative and enjoyable." - Bambi F., USA

The tour was spectacular and the views were something we will never forget! Looking forward to visiting Montenegro again and we will being using Ana for more tours when we return!" - Gina Long, USA

"Ana was very social and comforting! She had shown an impressive amount of knowledge with the history of Kotor, as well as areas to eat and relax!
