My 17-year old and I took this excursion through Limitless Tours. This was our favorite excursion of the whole trip. Our tour guide was super nice with a comfortable and clean boat and great descriptions of the sights. We highly recommend!

Natasza and Milos were lovely and very helpful. Very small and clean boat with just a few passengers. It gives you feeling of privet hire. You can see all the highlights of Kotor Bay. You can swim aroun Blue Grotto.

Ticket Tour: Blue Cave, Mamula Island, Submarine Tunnel, Lady of the Rocks (3hr)
The only reason that I gave 4 stars and not 5 is that the check in process is very disorganized and our trip departure was 30 minutes late. Once under way the tour was excellent. The boat was clean and the captain was very skilled. We enjoyed the tour very much.

Ticket Tour: Blue Cave, Mamula Island, Submarine Tunnel, Lady of the Rocks (3hr)
The boat ride from Kotor to Blue Cave is gorgeous. The blue cave exceeded expectations (there actually was a blue cave, this time!). The crew was great. Igor, the tour operator, was very accommodating and moved us up to a private tour when our ship decided it had to depart earlier than originally scheduled. He even went to a store to buy my friend a bottle of wine at the last minute. 100% recommend!

Ticket Tour: Blue Cave, Mamula Island, Submarine Tunnel, Lady of the Rocks (3hr)
This was one of the best excursions we done when travelling on a cruise. Our cruise was delayed getting in. But the boat came back for us when we were 10 minutes late. The boat is very comfortable with WiFi and so fast. Our driver/skipper was very friendly and gave us alot of history, and plenty of time to see everything and to go swimming.

Tour Kotor - Perast Old Town - Island Our Lady of the Rocks - Every 2 hours
Vuk was a fantastic guide who safely took us to the island Our Lady of the Rocks and Perast Old Town. We took an evening ride (7 pm), and the sunset was beautiful. Note, if you go at this time, the church is closed. However, you can still walk around the small island. Perast was very nice and worth a second trip with more time. Overall, I would highly recommend this trip.

When to Get There

The small church can be overwhelmed with day-trippers, especially during the summer months of July and August. Get an early start to avoid the crowds. For the most stunning photos, set sail across the bay in time to watch the sunset over the church.

The legend of Our Lady on the Rocks

According to legend, a local sailor found an icon of the Virgin Mary on a rock in the bay on July 22, 1452. Vowing to build a church on the sacred ground, seamen brought rocks home each time they returned from a successful voyage and laid them in the bay. Today, the legend lives on: Every year on July 22, locals gather to throw rocks into the sea.
