Bay of Kotor (Unesco)


Experience the Adriatic sea with us

When aboard on our comfortable gulet, Laguna1, on your one or two-week sailing cruise you sail in the warm turquoise waters off the coast of Montenegro, between Croatia & Albania. Going from one pretty bay to another tranquil cove, peacefully enjoying this beautiful area. The coastline here is a mixture of beaches, bays, villages, cave and (Unesco!) towns and uninhabited islands. Nature here is still largely unspoilt with pine-trees and olive trees dotting the landscape. Although Ventus Sailing Cruises are leisure cruises you can make your day as energetic or as relaxing as desired. Read a book while sipping a drink and sunning on deck.

Briefing time - Dobro Jutro (goodmorning)

Whenever possible the captain and crew will try and fulfil your wishes. You can inform us about your preference for a particular itinerary when making a reservation. We have sailed all routes on many occasions and the captains with their vast knowledge of the coast know the best places for swimming and the most beautiful and quiet bays and coves in the area.
Every morning after breakfast your captain gives you full details about the route and he presents you with a range of possibilities for that day, all depending on the weather of course. Please feel free to make any suggestions.

They can also inform you in detail about not-to-be-missed sights and towns ashore. Most cruises offer two to three optional excursions on land and twice you are free to dine at a restaurant of your choice ashore.

Your route Montenegro 2024

The daily itinerary is agreed between the captain and guests. It normally involves a leisurely sail after breakfast, lunch and siesta in a secluded bay, an afternoon sail or motor (if no wind) to settle for the night in a sheltered bay or in an ancient harbor. We offer about 10 different itinaries in 4 countries. Please find below an example of your itinerary in Montenegro:

DAY 1 - ARRIVE AT LUXURIOUS PORTO MONTENEGRO When your plane lands at the Tivat airport (or Dubrovnik, Podgorica), our friendly and courteous crew will be there to greet you. We’ll transport you directly to the strikingly beautiful harbour at Porto Montenegro, where your boat awaits. Boarding begins at 17:00 hours. Welcome aboard! After you are comfortably settled in your cabin, come join us for a friendly drink. Then savour a sumptuous chef-prepared welcome dinner onboard, and stay overnight at the dock or a bay nearby.
DAY 2 - EXPLORE MEDIEVAL TOWN KOTOR We begin with a memorable visit to the Maritime Heritage Museum, one of Tivat’s top historical attractions (optional). Then we cast off and begin your cruise in magnificent Boka Bay. After a stop for lunch and swimming in Ljuta Bay, we arrive early at the secluded coastal town of Kotor, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Surrounded by medieval fortifications, the Old Town offers an abundance of cafes, historic churches and museums, alongside Venetian pillories and palaces. Enjoy dinner on your own at any of Kotor’s charming restaurants, then return to your boat for the night.
DAY 3 - SWIM AND SIGHTSEE IN ANCIENT BUDVA After a hearty breakfast, take in a guided tour of the Old Town of Kotor before we sail south out of the bay. Next up: a refreshing swim in Dobra Luka Bay, followed by a delicious lunch onboard. We stop at the popular sunbathing spot of Jaz Beach, one of the longest beaches in Montenegro. Our next destination is Budva, one of the oldest settlements on the Adriatic coast, founded more than 2,500 years ago, and home to the most breathtaking churches in this part of Europe. It is known as much for its medieval walled city as for its sparkling sandy beaches and vibrant nightlife. Have a lovely dinner onboard, and then spend the night at anchor in Budva.
DAY 4 - RELAX LIKE ROYALTY NEAR SVETI STEFAN After a chef-prepared breakfast, we continue your journey along the breathtaking Adriatic coast. We stop for lunch in front of the fortified island village of Sveti Stefan (Saint Stephen), formerly a posh playground for 1960s film stars and royalty including Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, Doris Day, and Princess Margaret. From here we head off to Maljevik Bay – famed for the discovery of ruins from an ancient city in its shallows – to dine onboard before spending a blissfully peaceful night on anchor.
DAY 5 - DISCOVER THE FISHERMAN VILLAGE IN BIGOVA BAY We sail north and stop for lunch near Petrovac and the unforgettable beauty of the sandy beaches in Lucice Bay. There’s plenty of time for a leisurely swim in the emerald waters of Traste Bay before we arrive in the quaint fishing village of Bigova, where you can have a dinner onboard. We will spend the night either at dock or at anchor.
DAY 6 - DISCOVER THE ENDURING CHARM OF HERCEG NOVI Start your day with delicious breakfast onboard before we sail out into the open water again. Lunch is served in the quiet cove of Mirista Bay before we go swimming in Njvice. Shortly, we arrive at the coastal town of Herceg Novi, nestled at the foot of Mount Orjen. Stroll through floral- scented streets lined with classic architecture, centuries-old churches and fortresses, and countless tropical flowers that bloom under the near-constant sunshine. In town, enjoy dinner on your own before returning to the boat for the night.
DAY 7 - GAZE IN WONDER FROM THE TOP OF ST. NIKOLA On our final day of the cruise, we sail through Boka Bay and stop for a delightful lunch onboard in Risan Bay. Risan, with its soaring limestone cliffs and famous mosaics, dates back to the 3rd century B.C., when it was a fortified Roman town. Then we visit Perast, sometimes called the Venice of the Adriatic, where you can take in the stunning view from the top of the centuries-old St. Nikola church at the heart of the storied town. Discover the grace and charm of a bygone era at the Perast museum, in Bujovic Palace. We sail past the forested island of St Marco and drop anchor near Tivat for a celebratory three-course dinner onboard.
DAY 8 - RETURN TO PORTO MONTENEGRO After a send-off breakfast on board, check-out is around 09:30. Our crew will transport you safely back to the Tivat airport (or Dubrovnik, Podgorica) for your return from an Adriatic cruise you will never forget.
