Discover the taste of the Bay of Kotor on this half day Montenegro oyster tour to the top sights of the Bay of Kotor and a family-owned oyster farm.

“This tour has everything… crystal blue water, wind in your hair, handsome skipper, lots of flavors, and the colors and scents of our beautiful country!” says Ana, designer and guide of this tour.

And this tour really does take you to experience the essence of the Bay of Kotor - the beauty, history and seafood.

It starts with a speed boat ride from Kotor, from which you can see the glory and wealth of a bygone era. Kotor’s Venetian walls are unmistakable from the sea and you’ll pass dozens of Baroque palaces lining the shore as you cruise towards the historic down of Perast.

Just off Perast's shore you’ll visit Our Lady of the Rocks, one of the bay’s must-see attractions. This 500 year old island church and museum is an important part of the bay’s history and culture and has a beautiful story to go with it. You’ll have a guided tour through the church and museum before getting back in the boat to cruise through the Verige Strait to Porto Montenegro.

Porto Montenegro is the glamorous face of the new Montenegro. A marina teeming with some of the world’s largest and most luxurious yachts, you have the chance to walk around the marina and village, grab some gelato and experience the Mediterranean atmosphere.

After that it’s time to experience traditional Montenegrin cuisine and hospitality. You’re off to visit Mrs Zora at her family’s oyster farm where you’ll be welcomed as an honored guest. Here, you’ll try the classic flavors of Montenegrin cuisine – oysters, mussels, cheese, prosciutto and wine – in a relaxed seaside setting overlooking the beautiful bay.

After lunch it’s back in the boat to swim around the Island of Flowers and another island church, Our Lady of Mercy. After a ride back through the breath-taking scenery of the bay to Kotor your tour finishes with a walking tour of the medieval town of Kotor.
