Seaplane Regatta MontAdria in Montenegro

Press Releases


On May 5th 2021, we had the honour to participate in the opening ceremony of the first International Seaplane Regatta MontAdria that took place at the beautiful Synchro venue of Porto Montenegro marina. Our dear friends, Porto Montenegro (Adriatic Marinas) and Hotel Regent Porto Montenegro were amongst the main sponsors of this unique event and succeeded in giving us back the feeling that 'normal life' is slowly returning.

After the opening ceremony, the crowd (modest, following all COVID-19 measures) moved to PM Yachting Club to enjoy the remaining program. Besides the hydroplanes show that was thrilling, we enjoyed the culture and music program which presented Montenegrin heritage in a valuable way, from the national dance and costume of Montenegro to Boka Bay tradition and heritage. In the end, it was all spiced up with sounds of a classic guitar played by Bobo Bogdanovic (@guitarisio), who is a guitar professor that treated us with some contemporary musical arrangements.


This regatta was organised with some main goals:
  • Historical review and memory of the rich tradition and history in aviation and hydro aviation, which can be praised by a very small number of the most developed countries in the world, all to educate youth and citizens.
  • Presentation of seaplanes in Montenegro for panoramic flights, transport of tourists within the country and connecting with regional hubs, aero-technical activities: search and rescue operations, evacuation of the injured, Yacht Catering and crew change on the high seas, Fly & Dive, forest fire aero-monitoring, monitoring of borders and water areas, aero-ecological monitoring within the National Parks and the Institute of Marine Biology, inspection control of the beach of the Marine Estate and vessels, etc.
  • The revitalisation of traffic using amphibious hydro-aviation.
  • Development of hydroplane-port infrastructure in conjunction with sports-tourist airports and their connection with regional centres and hubs.
The Seaplane Regatta MontAdria continues on May 6th and 7th, all around Montenegro. You can check their program here, and if they happen to fly around your city, you can even enjoy the show!

Fun Fact: It has been 80 years since these hydroplanes last flew in the Montenegrin air space.
