Paddle a kayak through the sheltered waters of the Bay of Kotor, admiring the natural beauty of the fjord-like landscape and the walled medieval city of Kotor.
After a short walk from the pier, you will arrive at the kayak station for a brief orientation to ensure that you will get the most out of this outdoor experience. You will then ease into a kayak and paddle out into the magnificent Bay of Kotor, known locally as “Boka.”
Sheltered by limestone mountains, the water is typically calm and ideal for kayaking. The landscape in every direction will be immensely picturesque with cliffs so precipitous that the bay is often referred to as the southernmost fjord in Europe. It’s that stunningly beautiful.
From the sea-level vantage point of the kayak, you will enjoy a unique perspective of Kotor. You will clearly see the medieval defensive walls that protected the city for centuries and the spires of historical churches that dot the distinctive skyline. UNESCO considers the city so culturally important that it has named Kotor a “World Natural and Historical Heritage Site.”
As you paddle along the nearly four-mile route, the guide will point out architectural highlights and natural wonders, so your understanding of the area will be all the more in depth. You will also have the opportunity to take a refreshing swim and snorkel in the bay’s crystal-clear waters. Following your kayaking adventure, you will walk back to the pier.
