The company went out of the way to help us after delays getting off the boat made us miss our planned tour. They called the owner for the best options. Since out time was limited and out main purpose was to see the blue cave. They arranged a private boat for a decent additional amount. It was the best experience. The captain was kind and took pictures of us swimming and allowed us to go into another area to swim longer without the other boats. He still told us about several other sites aling the way.

This was a fantastic experience, and we highly recommend this tour. The boat is new, super clean and very comfortable. The captain Eno is marvelous and shares history. He also has an excellent playlist. The amount of stopping feels just right. You have time to explore Lady of the Rock and the blue waters of the Adriatic!

Such a great activity and way to experience the highlights of Kotor in a short amount of time. Way better price than booking through the cruise ship excursions. Very easy booking process and communication.

The boat trip met my expectations. I wasn't disappointed for a minute. The boatman was very nice and personable. I liked all stations. Can't say which was better.

Wonderful day! So beautiful! There was alot of boats there this day so they caves were pretty crowded but overall it was still such a fun day.
