"Across the bay" Kotor Transportation Tip by TheWanderingCamel
Kotor Transportation: 40 reviews and 33 photos
The protected waters of the Gulf of Kotor have always provided the city with access to a wider world beyond its mountain-ringed fastness. Boats are a way of life here and any visitor is bound to have the opportunity to take to the water at some time. Some will sail into the bay on a luxury craft, others will spend an hour or two on a small excursion with a local boatman. Maybe you'll take the ferry that shuttles back and forth across the Verige channel all day and night between Lepetane and Komenari. Whatever you do, you will be following in a centuries-long tradition that saw Kotor sustain a naval history that made it a formidable force in this part of the world way beyond its size. With plans afoot to turn the old naval base at Tivat into a yachting base to rival Antibes and Palma, the day may not be far off when the the bay is once more filled with sails.
Ad hoc arrangements can be made with local boat owners in Perast to visit the island churches just off shore.
Several companies offer boat trips from the Kotor quayside opposite the main gate. Ankica Taxi Boat offers set tours and is also available for a full day's hire.
The Leperane-Komenare ferry operates around the clock from June 1 to September 30 and from 0500-2400 for the rest of the year.
