Overview

The Blue Cave, locally known as Plava pilja, is one of the Adriatic's must see spots. The pristine coastline is perfect for swimming in the Adriatic's crystal clear green/blue water, also perfect for snorkelling, cliff jumping and underwater photography.
This tour is the only way to explore the area and the caves sustainably, and the only way for individuals, couples and small groups the opportunity to explore the coastline and discover the caves by kayak or SUP.

    Despite an incredible wind the evening before, timely and clear communication with the tour company allowed us to delay our start time and experience the perfect kayak adventure to the blue cave and a few other nearby caves that larger boats are not able to access. Photos don't do the vivid colors justice. Tilen, our guide, provided good equipment and gentle guidance. This was a highlight of our stay in Montenegro!

    Lovely morning workout by Kayaking to the Blue Cave. The water was amazing and the Blue Cave was beautiful. Our guides were super friendly, attentive and helpful. A must do trip in Montenegro

    We were collected from the cruise terminal as arranged. As we drove to the site to pick up the kayaks, Jeffrey was a wealth of information about Montenegro and it’s history which was excellent. The kayaks were fantastic for beginners, very stable and easy to climb into from the water when you jumped in for a swim. The area we paddled was simply amazing, the water was sublime and the scenery spectacular.
    After finishing the paddle we had a light lunch from a little cafe where we had parked. It was humble and delicious!
    Totally recommend this tour to anyone. No paddling experience necessary but ability to swim is a definite advantage.
    Thanks Jeffrey for a great day 👍

    This was the most amazing sea kayaking trip I’ve ever done! The Adriatic was a crazy shade of teal/turquoise with crystal clear water so we could see the sandy bottom in the shallows where we swam. The high salt content makes treading water a pleasure (compared with a pool) and the Blue cave is absolutely stunning. There is a lot of motor boat traffic (read stinky gasoline) but in the periods without boats it’s heavenly. Our guides (Dutch and English) took us to the less frequented smaller caves where the tour boats could not get to and we glided into bat caves and awesome deep blue. The weather was perfect. We could hop out of the kayaks and swim anytime and anyplace. The guides were super laid back and patient. Our row to the caves and back was about half hour and the water was pretty calm. The bus drive to the launch site was winding but the guides were careful drivers and no one got car sick. There were showers available at the camp site when we got back and extra swimming time which was perfect. Only down side was I only saw one fish! As compared to the pacific this ocean has been over fished. Not no muddy rivers to spoil the clear waters. Overall an amazing experience!!

    We got picked up in a van that looked like it was about to break down.

    Our tour guides did the bare minimum to give us information along the way and at the sites.

    The equipment was fantastic but to pay this much...he experience could have been a lot better.

    We paddled for maybe an hour and we were done in three. Definitely not the best use of money.

    After minor confusion at the pier we were able to contact and meet with this tour. If you have questions on where the meeting location is ask the works in the white booth who are located at the entrance of the gate to the cruise terminal. They kindly called the tour guide and gave us perfect directions to the meeting point. While on our 10 minute walk from the pier to the meeting location a gentleman on a motorcycle stopped and asked if we were part of his group. He further guided us to the location. After meeting our tour guide we boarded a van and drove roughly 45 minutes to the kayak launch site. Our guide kept us well entertained and telling us about the history of the area, culture and was begging for us to ask him questions. Upon arriving at the Kayak launch site, restrooms were provided along with a small cafe where they had drinks and small food. The water was extremely rough that day and our guide expressed it would not be safe for us to enter the water. All guests agreed and the guide stated he will have our money refunded. Even though the main tour had to be canceled, our guide went out of his way to take us to a beautiful picture location that allowed us to over look the valley and the anchored cruise ships below. The guide was very passionate about his job and we could tell he hated to have to cancel the trip. I have good belief that if the seas were more calm this would have been an amazing experience.

    Amazing place and great tour guide

    We loved this day out!!
    We were in Kotor for the day via a cruise ship.
    After about a 15-20 minute walk, we found the meeting point at the main office.
    Our lovely tour leader his name I cannot remember, but he has a beautiful young daughter Helena I think??!!
    Anyway, he was wonderful and very passionate about his job and the environment of Montenegro!
    The 4 of us joined the others 8 in totaland were taken by van to our destination to start our kayaking.
    It was about 30-40 min drive away from kotor out to a local camping ground and beach where the kayaks were ready and waiting.
    With some basic instructions we were helped into the kayaks and on our way, with the help also of one other person who met us on site.
    Weather conditions and personal abilities will help decide what route will be taken. One young couple on our trip were having some difficulties so our guides swapped them around and all was well.
    We paddled off into a few grottos with amazing clear blue water and we could swim in the main cave if we wanted to. The main cave is where all the other motorised tourist boats gather also.
    The 4 of us are in our late 50s and early 60s, with little to no experience, but we surprised ourselves and managed very well. Also with our expert instructions, NONE of us pulled up sore the next day!
    After finishing we were able to have a nice swim off the rocks and it was possible to have a rinse off and change to dry clothes.
    There was also enough time to buy ourselves a local snack and drinks from the campground kiosk. Such lovely people run the campground and relaxing there topped off our day!
    I would highly recommend this trip!

    We actually missed the excursion due to timing but the people gave us a different excursion so we didn't loose all our money.
