Moments from the tours
Our experience with Miro & Sons was simply amazing! We had an incredible day with a knowledgeable skipper who provided us with fascinating information about the area. Since we arrived on a cruise ship, they made sure everything was perfectly scheduled. Although the cave can be quite busy, our guide made sure we got the best views by touring inside the cave on the boat before taking us to another stunning cave area for some swimming.
100% recommend it!
We spent a day visiting the Our Lady of the Rock Island and Blue Cave, and let me tell you, it was so majestic! Our tour guide told us many legends and myths about the surrounding of Our Lady of the Rocks island. It was very interesting! Overall, this was a great experience, and I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to spend their day at the sea and explore the beautiful coastline of Montenegro.
