Overview

Highlights (Bullets)

  • Sail between towering cliffs and into the fjord-like Bay of Kotor, where ancient mountain hamlets are stuffed with World Heritage-listed villages and sublime beaches.
  • Snorkel the clearest water in the Mediterranean and cool off with daily swim stops at secluded coves and bays, whenever it takes the group's fancy.
  • Dine on some of the world’s freshest seafood. Grilled, fried and cooked to perfection in tiny waterfront restaurants where recipes have been perfected over generations.
  • From the winding walls that lead to the Castle of San Giovanni in Kotor to the 15th-century Podmaine Monastery in Budva – this trip is sure to delight amateur historians.
  • Spend the night docked in Perast, a quiet village with dozens of historic churches, palaces and villas that nonetheless remains free of tourist crowds.

Short Description

Rugged Adriatic Coast, ancient port cities and the sheltered waters of the Bay of Kotor make Montenegro a dreamy place for an eight-day sailing adventure. While neighbouring Croatia has long been a marine travel hotspot, Montenegro remains something of a hidden sailing gem. Spend several days exploring both the popular and the little-seen treasures of the Bay of Kotor and the Montenegro Coast, lounging in a striped beach chair among the beautiful people of Budvar one day, and slurping fish chorba at a tiny local restaurant in the village of Bigovo the next. This limited season sailing tour is the ideal way to explore this Balkan beauty.

Itinerary

Day 1 Dubrovnik - Adriactic Coast - Herceg Novi

Welcome to Dubrovnik! Leave behind the gorgeous but busy city for the quieter waters of Montenegro with embarkation at 3 pm. After sailing through customs checkpoints in Cavtat and Zelenika, sit back and relax as we clip towards Herceg Novi. If conditions are optimal, the vessel should arrive in Herceg Novi by about 8 pm, meaning you’ll likely be able to catch the first of many magical sunsets from the deck en route. Founded in 1382, Herceg Novi is your historic entry point to the Bay of Kotor and a fabulous city in its own right. With an evening spent at port, you’ll have time to explore the tree-lined squares of the city at your leisure this evening and tomorrow. With its narrow and steep stone stairways, the city makes for a picturesque place to explore on foot. In daylight hours, perhaps walk up to the terrace of Gradska Kafana cafe, where any spilled sweat will be rewarded with a coffee and unparalleled views of the point where the exit of the Bay of Kotor meets the open sea. If conditions permit, it may also be possible to visit the WWII-era warship tunnels that line the bay’s opening.

Day 2-6 Bay of Kotor

Spend several glorious days exploring the Bay of Kotor. Expect daily swims off the side of the boat and adventures on land. While the nature of a sailing adventure means exact landing sites and times are flexible, below you’ll find some of our favourite sites. Rose – Perast Stop in at Rose while sailing into the Bay of Kotor. A historic fishing village, Rose offers a quiet change from busier Herceg Novi. Continue to Perast, passing the tiny islands of Gospa od Skrpjela (Our Lady of the Rocks) and Sveti Dorde, which are home to church and a monastery respectively. Dock in Perast overnight and spend some time exploring at your leisure. Stuffed with dozens of churches – as well as palaces and villas leftover from the city’s fruitful relationship with the Venetian Republic – Perast today is a dream for those with a historical bent. Kotor Docking in Kotor, one of the best-preserved medieval cities in southeastern Europe, and exploring its winding streets can feel like travelling back in time. Each corner turned offers up another photo opportunity. Perhaps hike along the ancient, steep fortress walls to the Castle of San Giovanni, a stunning medieval structure from which you can get sweeping views of the Old Town. Depending on your fitness level and the sureness of your footing, the hike can take between 3-5 hours, so it’s a good idea to set off early if you plan to tackle the climb. After something less strenuous? The quirky Cats’ Museum is a cute little collection of artefacts, antiques, paintings, stamps, newspaper articles and more related to humankind’s feline friends. Uvala Dobrec Cool off in the pristine waters of Uvala Dobrec, a secluded cove with a pebble beach, hammocks for hire and a handful of beachfront seafood restaurants serving catch-of-the-day specials. Budva Budva is home to sandy beaches, a walled city, old monasteries and a throbbing nightlife. The amount of time spent here will therefore depend on the group’s desire to let loose. Don’t worry though, if you prefer the sun and the sand over the sound of bass, Budva is also home to lovely sheltered beaches like Mogren, Kamenovo and Jaz.

Day 7 Bigovo – Cavtat

Sail out of the Bay of Kotor to Bigovo, a quaint fishing village in a bay that’s sheltered from wind and rough seas and thus home to some of the clearest water you’re likely to see on this trip. Once a place where pirates hid from storms, Bigovo remains a place of refuge – though today that escape is from the tourist crowds that flock to larger ports. Breathe in the refreshing smell of laurel and coniferous trees that fill the village, and maybe enjoy a bowl (or three) of chorba. This stew is made with fresh fish caught nearby and is served in many of the local restaurants. Continue to Cavtat, the customs checkpoint we passed through on our way into the Bay of Kotor. Aside from that bureaucratic function, Cavtat happens to be an adorable town in its own right with multiple Illyrian necropolises.

Day 8 Dubrovnik

Return to delightful Dubrovnik, where your trip ends on arrival. If you wish to spend more time here, we'll be happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability). Please speak to your agent at the time of booking to arrange this.

Had the best time! Over 5 days we hiked up hill, down dale, across creeks and through beautiful pockets of ancient Gondwana rainforest. The scenery was stunning, the company was awesome, and I can't recommend Intrepid Travel (and our tour leader, Joel) highly enough!

Guides

On this trip you will be accompanied by one of our skippers. Your skipper's role involves taking charge of the sailing, the safety of the vessel and safety for all passengers on board. Skippers all hold a Yacht Master Offshore license or higher and have completed an intense training and review process before sailing with us. They are also fully qualified in CPR and First Aid. The aim of the skipper is also to take the hassle out of your travels by organizing the overall operation and smooth-running of the trip, managing trip logistics and coordinating the kitty (where applicable). Your skipper will provide information on the places you are travelling through, offer suggestions for things to do and see, recommend great local eating venues and introduce you to our local friends. While not being guides in the traditional sense you can expect skippers to have a broad general knowledge of the places visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious and social aspects.
