Swim the Yugoslav Submarine Tunnels

2 hours, with a professional guide upon request.

Explore the labyrinths of three of the most impressive submarine tunnels built by the Yugoslav Army during WW II.

They are located near a small village of Rose, conveniently located approximately 10 minutes away by tender from Zanjic anchoring location.

One of the tunnels faces the open sea and Mamula Island, while the other two are about 1-2 kilometers in the Tivat direction.

There are also a few abandoned Yugoslav Navy ships around.

All tunnels are dead ends, so you cannot swim through, but you can swim to the end and back. You can also walk alongside and explore on your own. It is pretty dark at the ends of the tunnels, so having a flashlight helps. There are also other walking tunnels diverting from the main submarine tunnel. The tunnels are around 100 meters long and 10 meters deep.

The tour can be combined with the diving tour, as there are several shipwrecks in this area.

You will

  • See submarine tunnels
  • Pass next to historic Mamula Island that served as a prison in WWII. It is closed for public now as it is under construction, and will become a luxury hotel.
  • Pass next to the village of Rose, where you can stop for refreshment or lunch at the beautiful village resort Forte Rose (, video )


Take enough water with you, SPF, hat and appropriate shoes, if you plan to explore the surroundings.
