Montenegro Boat Excursion - Kotor Bay


Gems of Kotor Bay is a private tour dedicated to those who would like to explore the coast of Montenegro in a different way. The tour combines transportation on land from Dubrovnik to Kotor and back (luxury Mercedes vehicles) followed by a private boat tour of Kotor Bay. 

The Bay of Kotor (Boka Bay), along with the town of Kotor, after which the bay received its name, is protected by UNESCO as a world-historical and natural heritage site. On this excursion, you will witness scenic landscapes and unique sites of the bay where the art of nature is fully expressed.

Upon arrival to the town of Kotor, we will be boarding a boat that will take us through Kotor Bay for a scenic ride and visit its gems. First, we will pass the narrow Strait of Verige and continue towards our first stop, Mamula Island, known for its stunning fortification, and notorious prison, (Kampo Mamula), which operated in both world wars. Our next stop is a Blue Cave where you can swim, snorkel and relax in radiant blue and crystal-clear sea before continuing towards a former Yugoslavian inactive military submarine base. Here you can learn about Communist military heritage and enter tunnels carved in the steep mountains where submarines were once docked.

The medieval town of Perast, situated under the breathtaking mountains and two picturesque islets is our next stop. After the visit and just a short ride from the town of Perast, the man-made islet of Our Lady of the Rocks found its place in Kotor Bay. Constructed in the 15th century is filled with legends and tales. We will stop to explore this magnificent historical site well.
After this visit, we will make our way toward the town of Kotor.

Upon return to Kotor, there will be free time to enjoy this town’s beauties, and historical heritage as well as time for lunch. Following our stop in the town of Kotor, we will head back to Dubrovnik.

Client Testimonials

A top experience in Croatia
An experience truly worth a 5 star review. The night was perfect from a pick up at our AirBnB to the boat and Captain who was kind and entertaining. He knew all the best locations for the best pictures and truly enjoyed leading us on this journey. The food at the island of Lopud was amazing. The freshest fish and the best accommodations. Overall I could not recommend this experience enough and we are so grateful to have found this amazing experience!

Mostar excursion
We had an excellent day spent with Goldie. He was quite professional and very knowledgeable as a long time resident of Dubrovnik. The vehicle was very comfortable. We had 2 additional stops including Ston which was worth the time. Mostar was a fascinating city and this tour on fueled a desire to return.

Elaphite Islands Boat Tour
Iso was a terrific skipper safely boating us to the Elaphite Islands in Croatia..touring the different charming islands was great fun and his suggestion of a wonderful seaside restaurant for lunch on Lopud was very special..Adria Luxury Travel was very accommodating with the weather challenges we had on our confirmed boating date.

Just do it!! Amazing experience
We had such a great time on our boat trip. Iwan, our skipper, was fun and made sure we had an amazing time. Highly recommend doing this. The islands we were taken to were absolutely beautiful.

Loved it!
Zlatko is a brilliant driver and very informative about the history, culture and people. He took my photographer brother to the best scenic views, enabled me to avoid steep steps, and recommended a lovely restaurant by the river. Zlatko is a very nice person and it was like travelling with a friend. He went above and beyond and even invited my brother to his house to watch football! Perast and Kotor are picturesque and we had an amazing day. Go early as even in April there was a lot of traffic and people. The tour was a highlight of our holiday and well worth the expense.

Pearls of Montenegro with Zlatko
Zlatko ensured we visited all of our locations and attractions we wanted to visit whilst providing in-depth information on each place. He also recommended the most beautiful restaurant to visit on our way back from Montenegro. I can honestly say the food and the location were world-class. Zlatko was a super friendly tour guide who made all of us feel very comfortable instantly. I would highly recommend taking a private tour with Zlatko whether you are a family or a solo traveller. We will definitely take another tour with Zlatko when we return to Dubrovnik

A spectacular day trip to Montenegro with Ivan and Marianja
We booked this trip based on internet reviews and I can confirm the 5-star reviews are worthy. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the stunning sights of Montenegro and the vistas along the drive. Ivan was our driver and he was an excellent guide/driver. He was knowledgeable about Croatia and answered our questions along the drive. He arrived early to pick us up from the Hotel Bellevue in Dubrovnik and the Mercedes sedan was clean and comfortable. I was impressed with Ivan's maturity and professionalism for such a young adult, and his English is superb. We felt safe and in good hands during the beautiful drive along the Adriatic coast. We opted for the tour guide add-on in Montenegro and Marianja was also terrific. She provided thorough, efficient stories and facts about Kotor, Perast (her family is from there), and the surrounding areas. As with Ivan, Marianja was professional and knowledgeable. Adria Luxury Travel was great to work with from the time I first emailed the company to inquire about the trip, the efficient booking process, and having all the tickets and information prepared for our private tour. I highly recommend Adria Luxury Travel, would absolutely book a trip with Ivan again. and appreciate the excellent service from our tour guide, Marianja.

Bucket list - tick
An unforgettable experience from start to finish. Our skipper was friendly, informative and made us feel safe throughout the trip. We swam in beautiful caves and lagoons, ate lunch at a local restaurant right on the waterfront and saw many of the islands and the old town of Dubrovnik. I would highly recommend this once in a lifetime experience.

Top Rate Service on an Extraordinary Tour
I was impressed by how professional and pleasant my driver, Ivan, was from the moment of pick up. The car was immaculate and he was more than willing to customize the tour to my preference. He was a patient and skilled driver that puts safety first. I appreciated that Ivan was a highly intelligent individual that made the hours in the car go by quickly through conversation. The tour itself was phenomenal. Moster is a charming town that looks like a step back into the medieval ages. The history of the village is rich and in some cases, tragic. The bridge is worth seeing as it is a symbol of unity. Charming little shops can be found all along the cobblestones streets. Great restaurants and gelato booths require a stop before heading out. We moved on to Medugorje. The Church has different areas to visit and the actual apparitions are further up the hill. For those willing to trek a rocky and untamed path to the top, it is easily understood why it's a scared and spiritual journey for many. You feel the power of prayer from all the people around you. In a nutshell, I wouldn't use another company on my future trips to Dubrovnik.

Day for the record books!
“Excellent” doesn’t say enough about our experience with Adria travel and our phenomenal chauffeur for the day, Iso. I am in Croatia with my husband, teen twin boys, tween daughter, and my parents who are both close to 80 years old. Iso catered to each one of our personalities, preferences and athletic abilities with ease! He spent time on the boat talking with my mother when she didn’t want to swim, but also joking with my boys in a way they found hilarious and I found endearing. We didn’t have a lunch reservation and he quickly made one for us that turned out to be one of the best meals we have had in Croatia for ambiance, food and wait staff. (Obala on Lopod). Beyond the fact that Iso was a highlight, the boat was perfect! The kids loved sitting on the front when they could and it was easy to get in and out of for swimming. The day will go down as not only a gold star during the trip, but as a gold star of all vacations as we reminisce through our “favorites” in the years to come.

What an amazing boat day!
We had a wonderful private boat tour with Adria Luxury Travel. This was our first time in Croatia, and we wanted to see the Elaphite Islands. We didn't know where to start, so we booked a tour with Adria Luxury Travel. Booking was easy, pick up was even easier! Iso was our skipper and showed us around the boat and explained where we would be going. He was super informative, incredibly pleasant and a joy to spend the day with! He checked in with us throughout the day to make sure we were enjoying our time and that we were getting to see all of the things on our list. I'm not a swimmer, but really wanted to get into the beautiful Croatian water and go to the Sunj beach. Iso was super patient and kind with getting me in a life vest, gave advice on the best way to get to the beach carefully and safely and was gentle when I was hesitant to get in the water. Once we made it back to the boat, he greeted me with a big smile and congratulated me on making it to the beach and back! When we stopped for lunch in Lopud, he went above and beyond by recommending a place and making a reservation for us. When we come back to Croatia, we will absolutely be booking a second tour with Iso. He provided exceptional service and definitely made our experience one to remember. I highly recommend booking with Adria Luxury Travel. If you do, tell Iso I said hi! Iso & team - thanks again for making our first time in Croatia so memorable. We hope to see you again soon!

Magical Day Island Hopping
This was an absolutely magical day! Iso was a fabulous guide and skipper who ensured we made the most out of our trip. We swam in crystal waters, conquered our fears and swam to the Blue Cave, tried SUP, learned history, visited gardens and more. The only thing I would do differently would be to book a full day instead of half, but otherwise it was a perfect day!

Superb private boat tour !
We had a private boat tour from Dubrovnik to Hvar via Korcula. Right from the booking process to the communication about the trip , the system was perfect . We had Iso as our skipper who was the best part of the trip . Confident , caring and made everything so comfortable for myself and my mother . We really had a great time thanks to his advice and guidance and the entire teams effort to keep everything punctual , professional and super flexible . Thank you so much .

Amazing boat excursion around the Elaphite islands!
What an amazing boat excursion! We did a 4 hour tour for our 10th wedding anniversary trip. Our Captain was amazing, very friendly and knowledgable about all the islands we visited. We had the perfect balance of time on the islands and time cruising on the water. The boat was the perfect size, and even had a bathroom to make it extra convenient and comfortable. We tried stand up paddle boarding too, didn't even know that would be available to us, so it was a great surprise. We highly recommend this company, we just wish we had more vacation time to do another boat tour!

A highlight of our trip!
Cannot recommend this day trip enough! Our group of 6 girls were lucky enough to have Iso as our driver for the day and he took such good care of us / made sure we had lots of fun and knew fun facts about Montenegro along the drive. We were picked up at our lodging right on time and the Mercedes Van itself was very comfortable and clean. Iso made the day seamless, coordinating with our tour guide in Kotor, etc. We started exploring Budva for about an hour, then onto Kotor for about 2.5 hours and then finished with the Bay of Kotor and a boat ride out to our Lady of the Rocks. All of these stops were well worth it and Iso gave us helpful info along the way! All in all, this day was one of the highlights of our 10 day trip to Croatia and I would highly recommend both Adria Luxury Travel and Iso himself.

Amazing Private Tours
Adrian was an amazing resource in Croatia. He picked us up at airport in a new Mercedes van. Perfectly punctual, professional and friendly. The next day he organized a private tour of Dubrovnik with a knowledgeable guide. He also organized a private boat trip to Hvar, with a stop at Korcula, that was also flawless. Finally, he picked us up and brought us back to airport for our flight home. Everything was perfectly timed, and he was warm and friendly each and every time. His prices were not a bargain, but fair. He should be your choice for Dubrovnik logistics.

Outstanding experience!
What an amazing time with Isa our captain. We went island hopping, snorkeling, paddle boarding, and exploring remote parts of islands. The whole experience was first class from the ease of use on their website to the timely pick-up and drop off at our hotel. Would highly recommend this trip!

Exquisite Experience
From the minute we were picked up until we were dropped off at our Villa, everything was perfect! The staff at Adria Luxury Travel are very professional and accommodating. Our group of 9 were picked up in a very luxurious new Mercedes Mini Bus and transported to the marina where the yacht was berthed. The staff on the yacht were waiting to greet us at the pier. Once boarded we were absolutely amazed by the cleanliness and new condition of the 43’ yacht. With plenty of seating in the flying bridge, stern and bow, we had no problem all sitting together or spread out in comfort. The crew were very accommodating serving Beer, Wine, snacks and refreshments throughout our journey. Because it was a private tour we could direct our movements around the islands. The crew were very knowledgeable about where to go and made plenty of recommendations. They also had snorkeling gear and towels available for our use. The value for this incredible excursion was amazing and I would highly recommend this for your vacation plans.

Wonderful boat day!
We had an amazing day out on the water with Iso. We were picked up on time in a nice vehicle and taken to the boat where we departed on schedule. Iso helped curate an itinerary that he thought we would enjoy, was a pleasure to be with and the boat we were on was fantastic. All the stops were great as was the time allotted for each one. Adria Luxury Travel was quick to respond via email and I would highly recommend them. I am a travel agent and booked them for myself personally to test them out and see if i could use them for clients and i 100% would.

I have to say hands down this was the best ! From A to Z 100% this driver and company was stellar ! Nenad the driver was amazing ! Not only was he a classy professional person. His knowledge of the difference areas and regions was top notch. When i booked this tour, i didn't know what to expect. Especially coming from the United States and my first time in Croatia. This driver and company was 1000000000 stars....No other private tour company could match them. 100% do not hesitate to use them. You will not be sorry. The best of the best ! Nenad is definitely the man and I would recommend requesting him. His English was perfect and he went above and beyond at all our stops. He was waiting for us every step of the way. We didn't have to wait for him at all. I would highly recommend this company for any tour they offer. Definitely the best in Croatia ! I have traveled to many different countries and been on difference private tours. By far this company and driver was the most professional and highest rated tour I have ever been part of overall. I'm so thankful I stumbled upon their website and booked it. Best of the best !!!! Exactly what your looking for overall.... My wife and I were so greatful for Nenad and this company ! Definitely will be using them again when we come back to Croatia !

Sunset proposal
Absolutely unbelievable! I booked the 4hr sunset cruise to propose to my girlfriend. Iso was our skipper and we couldn’t have asked for a better person to share our evening with. He kept our drinks filled up and took loads of pictures for us. Also really good communication with the company through WhatsApp made everything a lot easier.
Oct, 2022
Nenad the driver was worth a Million Stars we had a fantastic trip because of him being so courteous knowledgeable professional and good humour I would definitely recommend Nenad 200% to take you on any trip we enjoyed Medjugorie and Waterfalls very much.

8 hour boat trip in Dubrovnik
We had a magical day! Our driver picked us up promptly at our hotel and took us to the boat dock where we met our wonderful captain Eso! The day was perfect from beginning to end. Eso was friendly, kind, outgoing and accommodating. He wanted us to be happy and made our day special. We made several stops along the way….we snorkeled, swan in the Adriatic Sea and enjoyed a delicious lunch at Obala restaurant in Lopud. Eso set up the lunch reservation for us ahead of time. The restaurant was beautiful, the service was impeccable and the food was fantastic. We had plenty of time to walk around the island after lunch before heading back to the boat. The boat was pristine and comfortable. It was truly a perfect day in every regard and we highly recommend it to anybody visiting Dubrovnik!!!

A day we will never forget!
We had a wonderful boat excursion with Iso. We were picked up directly from our hotel and driven to the nearby marina, where a beautiful boat was waiting. We avoided crowded areas and were still able to enjoy gorgeous and romantic spots for snorkeling and island exploring. Iso was a wonderful captain and gracious host for the day. He even booked a lovely lunch reservation for us. Highly recommend!

Perfect day on the Elaphite Islands
We did the full day Elaphite Island excursion and it was the absolute best day we had while visiting Dubrovnik! Everything about the excursion was perfect, from the communication during planning to the care Captain Iso took to make sure our family had a great time. The different islands we visited were stunning, the lunch recommendation was outstanding, and every detail was wonderful. Highly recommend!

A brilliant day out in Mostar
I cannot praise this company enough, they were simply brilliant. Adrian in the office answered all my many questions very promptly, and they provided us with just what we wanted - a great day out in a superb vehicle with a fabulous knowledgable driver Isa. The guide they arranged in Mostar was just what we wanted. It was a great trip. We wanted a trip where we had the flexibility to do what we wanted - that was what we got.

The best travel experience in Croatia
My wife & I are only back one week from Dubrovnik and we still cannot get over how amazing our trip was. It was especially great because of the trips that we booked with Adria Luxury Travel. We had 3 excursions with ALT and all were so beautiful. We had the pleasure of meeting Iso twice for a yacht trip to Mjlet & also Korčula. We had visited Mljet 20 years previously and it hadn't changed a bit. We also visited 3 Peljesac Vineyards and an oyster farm with another brilliant man called Zoran. Both Iso & Zoran made the trips so special with their knowledge and humor. We would recommend any of the trips from this company and we will be back again to do more! Thanks to Adrian too. We will never forget how amazing ALT were to us and how comfortable they made us feel. Jon & Allison (Ireland)

Great Luxury Experience
My husband and I used Adria Luxury Travel for 3 services during our recent trip to Croatia. First, they picked us up from the Dubrovnik airport and transferred us by car to Korcula. Adrian was our driver and he was the best. He was so lovely to chat with during our 2.5 hour drive. The car we were picked up in was a Mercedes and very comfortable. Next, we did the Peljesac Vineyard Tour on our way from Korcula to Dubrovnik. It was the PERFECT way to spend the day. We did tastings at 2 wineries, visited an oyster farm (one of our favorite moments from the entire trip), stopped in Ston, and then were dropped off at our hotel in Dubrovnik. We were lucky enough to have Zoran as our guide. He was so friendly, so kind, and so knowledgeable. He shared so much information about the history of Croatia with us, as well as shared a lot about his personal life, his family, growing up during the war, serving in the war (all in response to us asking). It was a true honor to meet him and be able to spend time together - he has an incredible perspective on life that my husband and I have referenced several times already since returning home. Lastly, we did a half day boat tour of the Elaphite Islands. The company was nice enough to update us to a bigger boat at the time of booking, due to the fact that we booked early and booked several tours. The boat was beautiful and we had a nice day, with Iso as our skipper. I would highly recommend using Adria Luxury Travel - they are true professionals who will make your trip memorable, especially if you are lucky enough to meet Adrian or Zoran.

Professional and Turnkey operation to make your trip to Croatia Special
Our family used Adria Luxury Travel for several excursions in July. -Elaphite Islands. Awesome private boat excursion for our family of 5. Great boat with plenty of space. Captain Iso was very professional and friendly. Knowledgeable about the area and has a customer service attitude. Swimming and snorkeling was excellent. -Boat ride from Hvar to Dubrovnik. Picked us up early and enjoyed a scenic ride to Dubrovnik with a stop on the island of Korcula ( stunning island with many restaurants and shops to choose from). -Airport shuttle - Luxury Mercedes Vans / Great Driver. All trips were on luxury Mercedes vans with plenty of room and professional drivers. ALT is a turnkey operation. They are very professional and keep you informed about what to expect with every step in the journey / itinerary. They arrange transportation for every adventure so you don't have to worry about getting to and from the pick up locations. Ana from ALT is always quick to reply to any question and was very attentive to our needs during our week plus in Croatia. I would highly recommend them to make your trip a memorable one.

Great organization and amazing tour
Amazing day and splendid organization. The overall experience has been amazing. Great Boat and skilled skipper. Great service overall. We have been picked up from our hotel by a nice car and have been driven smoothly to the harbor. Totally recommend Adria Luxury travel, they are professional, flexible and always extremely kind. If we would visit Croatia again we will surely book another tour with them.

Superb, Flawless Service!
We were on a 8 day visit to Croatia. Adria Luxury arranged several private tours and transfer for us. Ana who planned our itinerary, the car, Driver and Guide was as meticulous and as efficient as one can get. Everything was planned to perfection. The services of the Driver and the Guides were excellent. No Guides or Driver tried to promote their Tourist Shops and Restaurants. The Cars were always clean and fresh. Driver Zoran who drove us around for all our trips was simply exceptional. His professionalism, Mannerism, Knowledge and concern of safety would be hard to match. Overall, truly first class luxury service from Adria Luxury Travel.

A fantastic five star experience
This was an amazing experience and a once-in-a-lifetime kind of trip. We went on a private tour and our guide was a gentle giant of a man by the name of Zoran. He was waiting for us outside our hotel at the agreed/booked time, and we set off in a plush Mercedes bound for Montenegro. Zoran was highly knowledgeable about the history and sites we saw enroute, as well as the ones we visited in Perast, Kotor and Budvar. He explained everything to us before we arrived at each place which was reassuring. We easily gained access to all the places we visited courtesy of Zoran having prearranged everything - including the boat to Our Lady of the Rocks. We were treated with a very high standard of respect & courtesy which we appreciated. It was an amazing day spent in a truly beautiful part of the world. If you want to spend a day in Montenegro, book it through this company, and ask for Zoran to be your guide. You’ll be in very safe & capable hands.

Multiple private tours, Great Experience!
Adria Luxury Travel arranged multiple private day trips for our honeymoon. The service was top notch all around. Emails were returned promptly and everything was arranged quickly and easily. We had to cancel a couple of activities last minute and the staff was very understanding and accommodating. The boat tour to Korcula and Mljet was excellent. The day trip to Mostar and the Kravice water falls was also a highlight. In particular, our driver Mladen was very friendly and informative and I would highly suggest requesting him in particular.
