Blue cave tour
I did this tour with my wife on a day trip from Podgorica. We both loved the boat trip, the views are amazing and the staff were all really friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The Lady of the Rocks was really nice but the highlight was swimming in the sea around the blue cave.

Ticket Tour: Blue Cave, Mamula Island, Submarine Tunnel, Lady of the Rocks (3hr)
The only reason that I gave 4 stars and not 5 is that the check in process is very disorganized and our trip departure was 30 minutes late. Once under way the tour was excellent. The boat was clean and the captain was very skilled. We enjoyed the tour very much.

The legend of Our Lady on the Rocks

According to legend, a local sailor found an icon of the Virgin Mary on a rock in the bay on July 22, 1452. Vowing to build a church on the sacred ground, seamen brought rocks home each time they returned from a successful voyage and laid them in the bay. Today, the legend lives on: Every year on July 22, locals gather to throw rocks into the sea.
