2013 Croatian Ferry Schedules

Those planning their trips to Croatia this year will need to consult ferry schedules when creating their island hopping itineraries. Unfortunately, Jadrolinija, the Croatian national ferry company, has not yet published their schedules for their coastal and local routes in 2013. Most likely they will continue their local daily service between the mainland and most islands, but it is unknown if the coastal ferry that runs from Rijeka to Dubrovnik via Split, Hvar, Korcula, and Mljet will operate.

For now, the only 2013 schedules to be published are the international routes between Italy and Croatia. The following are links to those schedules online:

Ancona to Zadar

Ancona to Split, via Stari Grad, Hvar

Bari to Dubrovnik

  1. Hi Andy and Michelle,

    when are the Ferry timetables for the summer usually released? Also interested to know whether or not in your opinion the coastal Ferry between Dubrovnik and Rijeka will be resumed again this year.

    Many thanks,

    Nick Sharman

    1. The coastal ferry schedule isn't usually released until May, which is quite close to its start date of early June. I think the Dubrovnik - Rijeka coastal ferry will likely operate again this year. Other local schedules that are not yet published will be published over the next couple of months.

  2. Hello Andy and Michelle,

    Your blog is really useful, thank you for sharing it with us!

    Me and my partner are travelling around europe during the summer and have already booked a flight from Zagreb down to Dubrovnik. We are then planning on getting a bus from Dubrovnik to Split... Do you have any idea how much this bus journey would cost?

    Also, is there a ferry service that runs from Zadar to Pula, and also Pula to Venice?

    Sorry for all the questions but you seem to really know your stuff!

    Thanks again,

    Ellie

    1. Hi Ellie,

      I don't know the exact cost of the bus to Split, but I think it is around 100 Kuna per person, which is about 14 EUR.

      I believe that there is ferry service from Pula to Venice. I don't know which company runs the service, but I think it is easy to find that information online. I think it is an Italian ferry company.

      I do not think that there is a ferry from Zadar to Pula as most ferries connect the mainland to the islands, but not multiple mainland cities.

    1. Hi Nick,

      I was just on the website and they are not up there yet. Jadrolinija sometimes waits until the last minute to publish it.

  4. Hello, we are planning a wedding May 24-32 in Cavtat. Do you know if there will be a ferry line that runs at this in May for our guests to get to Dubrovnik?

    1. Yes, there is a local ferry or taxi boat that runs throughout the day between Dubrovnik and Cavtat. If the weather is good it will be running in late May.

  6. Hi,

    We are travelling to Croatia in August later this year. Please let me know what would be the easiest way to get from Dubrovnik to Trogir.

    Thank you,

    1. The easiest way from Dubrovnik to Trogir would be by bus. You can take the Dubrovnik to Split bus, which leaves about 15 times per day. You may have to switch buses once in Split, but I am not sure.

  7. Hi Andy and Michelle!

    Thanks for the great blog!
    My boyfriend and I are travelling to Croatia in a week, we arrive in Split and fly back from Dubrovnik. We'd like to visit Dubrovnik, Korcula town and Mljet island (and not stay in Split) and are wondering what would be the best time-saving route-> Split-Korcula town/Lumbarda-Mljet-Dubrovnik or Split-Dubrovnik-Korcula-Mljet-Dubrovnik. We arrive late night in Split..
    Thank you for the help in advance!

    1. It really depends on the ferry schedule on the days you plan to travel, but I think Split-Korcula town/Lumbarda-Mljet-Dubrovnik would work better because you can take the catamaran from Korcula to Mljet and then travel by catamaran from Mljet to Dubrovnik whenever you are ready to move on. It will save you from going to Dubrovnik twice. However, this depends on whether the coastal ferry from Split to Korcula is operating on the day you want to leave Split.

  8. ok, thank you!
    The ferry from split to korcula leaves at 5pm on the next day we arrive in split, which means we have to spend a long time in split. So i think going to dubrovnik first would be better..
    is http://www.korculainfo.com/ferries/catamaran-dubrovnik-mljet-korcula-lastovo.htm the most reliable timetable i can find for ferries from dubrovnik to mljet and korcula?
    thank you so much!

    1. Yes, that is the most reliable website for the ferry schedule from Dubrovnik to Mljet & Korcula. That is the schedule that I use as well.
