KOTOR SPEED BOAT TOUR WITH MH TRAVEL agency
DAILY SHORE EXCURSION IN MONTENEGRO...DEPARTURE FROM KOTOR...HIGHLIGHTS: THE BLUE CAVE, SUBMARINE TUNNEL, AND ISLAND OUR LADY OF THE ROCKS...DURATION: 3/5 HOURS...TICKET PRICE €40.00
Speedboat trips are quite popular in Kotor as one of the ideal opportunities for a short exploration of the bay from the sea for guests who stay a few days in Kotor or even a few hours like cruise ship guests. Boka Bay has spectacular scenery, and there are several opportunities to explore it. One option is going all around by car and visiting the most popular places as we do on our Kotor Boka Bay Tour, or sailing and slowly exploring the bay as we do on our Sailing Boat Tours, or you can do it fast in only 3/5 hours taking by speed boat. The main highlight of the speed boat tour is visiting the Blue Cave. You will be able to visit or swim in the cave for just one hour of the speed boat ride from Kotor because reaching it by car is not possible. The Blue Cave is located at the very entrance of the Boka Bay on peninsula Lustica (open sea), across peninsula Prevlaka in Croatia. Also, guests will be able to visit the famous islet Lady of The Rocks near Perast. This is a very relaxing tour, which we recommend to everyone. Welcome:)
WHEN AND WHERE WILL WE START?
We will start in front of the tourist info kiosk (next to the Main or Sea Gate in the old town) at 8:45, 11:45, and 14:45. The boats are located in the Port of Kotor, just 70 meters away from the meeting point. Skippers will come to the meeting point and board the guests to the boats.
NOTE: The temperature in the summer season can be very high, above 40 degrees, so pay attention to protect your body with adequate clothes, skin with sun cream, and head with a hat. Always have enough water.
WHERE WE WILL GO?
After boarding, we will see Kotor Bay, Risan Bay, Verige Gate, Tivat Bay, Herceg Novi Bay, Mamula Island, The Blue Cave, The Submarine Tunnel, and The Lady of the Rock.
WHAT WILL YOU GET?
Safe and nice ride by our boats: Sea Ray (maximum capacity 8 persons), The Active 555 Open (maximum capacity 8 persons), The Utern s 64 (maximum capacity 12 persons), and The Monterey 720 (maximum capacity 8 persons).
WHAT EXACTLY THIS TOUR LOOKS LIKE?
This is not a guided tour. The skipper will tell you basic information about the places that you will visit and the speed ride will start, with an average speed of 25 nautical miles per hour (around 40 km per hour). We will start from the port of Kotor 3 times per day: 9:00 am, at noon (12:00), and at 15:00 (3 pm), and go toward Verige, the exit/entrance of Kotor Bay. That ride lasts 20 minutes and guests will see from the left side of the bay Bokelian places Muo, Prcanj, and Stoliv, and on the right side of the bay places Dobrota, Ljuta, Orahovac, and Perast.
All those places make up the municipality of Kotor. The line of traditional stone houses with small docks decorated with camellia, and oleander flowers, with green and brown shutters, are strung in between picturesque lighthouses and baroque churches. Mountains Lovcen, Vrmac, and Orjen frame the scenery. Whatever you look at is full of the absolute beauty of celebrating harmony between people and nature. Like a scene from some historical movie, miles far away from artificial cities and modern life, Kotor Bay leaves you breathless. Take your camera and just try to catch some of that beauty.
After we will pass Verige, the narrowest part of the bay we will enter another part of Boka Bay. From the left side, we will see Tivat Bay and its super modern marina Porto Montenegro with numerous yachts and we will see the island St. Marko, the biggest island in Boka Bay.
On the right side, we will see Herceg Novi Bay with its very attractive luxury and brand new marina Porto Novi and the city Herceg Novi, which is the biggest city in the Bay of Boka. Our route will be at equal distances from both parts of the bay. Within 20 minutes of the ride, we will be on the main exit/entrance of the whole Bay of Boka near Herceg Novi and very close to Croatia.
There, we will see the island of Mamula, an ex-prison from the 19th century that is transformed into a luxury hotel. We will make a panoramic ride close to the island and continue to the Blue Cave. We need 10 more minutes to go there. On the right side, you will see the peninsula Prevlaka with the Fort of Prevlaka on the Croatian side of the bay entrance.
The Blue Cave is not easily visible and is approached from a hidden entrance. The cave is big enough for a few speed boats at the same time. Guests will be able to swim and enjoy glittering blue reflections which make the whole cave so special. Some boats play music or even have a DJ, so guests shouldn't be surprised if the cave looks like a party zone for the short time, especially in the summer season:)
We will be here for up to 30 minutes. After swimming and refreshing in the Blue Cave we will head back, but this time much closer to the village Rose on Peninsula Lustica to be able to get in in a submarine tunnel. Peninsula has several submarine tunnels, which are no longer used but they are attractive to visit.
The visit to the tunnels lasts 10 minutes and after that, we are going to the Lady of the Rock, the most attractive island in Kotor Bay. Guests will be able to visit this man-made island with the lovely baroque church from the 17th of century as well as a small church museum with artifacts from Roman imperial up to nowadays.
Artifacts show very unique silver plates given to the church by local people for centuries, as well as utensils, household items, navigation instruments, weapons, handmade embroidery, and paintings. Also, guests will have enough time to take wonderful photos of every corner of the island. After visiting Lady of the Rock, we will go back to the port of Kotor.
NOTE: In the very case of the large waves on the high seas that make it impossible to reach the blue cave, guests will visit Perast near the island of Lady of the Rocks.

We give a discount for groups of more than 10 people. Private tours can depart any day.
