About Boka Bay
No matter whether you enter Boka by land or by sea - your experience will the same - Boka will fascinate you! It looks as if the mountains have cracked and let the sea in. This is the southernmost fjord in Europe. The high mountains bend over the thin coastline thus protecting it from the severe climate from the north. That is why Boka is an oasis of Mediterranean vegetation: agave, palm, mimosa, oleander, kiwi, pomegranate, medicinal herbs. When its peaks are covered with snow, the roses bloom in the foothills.
The church Gospa od Skrpjela (Our Lady if the Rock)
is located at the same named island which is located in bay of Boka Kotorska across the beautiful small and peaceful town Perast. This church was raised in 1630 on an artificial island, which was built by fishermen from Perast. According to a legend these fishermen after the shipwreck found on a sea rock an icon of Holy Mother of God with Christ and vowed that right on that spot where the icon was found they will build a church, which will be dedicated to this icon of the Holy Mother of God, protector of sailors and fishermen.
Perast old town
The Republic of Venice owned the city between 1420 and 1797 as part of the Venetian Albania. The city's sixteen Baroque palaces were mostly built in this period, as were its seventeen Catholic churches and two Orthodox churches. The old city does not have a defensive wall, but instead it has nine defensive towers, the most important of which is the tower of the Holy Cross. These were built by the navy of the Venetian Republic in the 15th and 16th centuries.

We arranged the boat via Viator and texted the local company to pick us up from our hotel. The boat arrived right on time at the spot we agreed to meet. It is a speed boat and we were 4 people onboard, it was super convenient. Our guide was very nice and knowledgable about the history of the sites. We enjoyed the trip very much. Recommend to see the beautiful Kotor, Dobrota, Perast views from the bay. Enjoy!
This was a fun tour! We liked it because of the speed of the boat. We were there from a cruise ship so time is precious. It's a very quick ride there and back and gives time left over for Kotor. The only thing that didn't go perfectly was the weather. Unfortunately it rained on the way back so we got wet, but it was fun anyway. Very nice man who owns this business and very nice guy who piloted the speed boat. The church was interesting and the story about how it came to be there was interesting as well. We would definitely recommend this to others!
