Book your Ferry ticket Online

Attention, attention! This season you can buy your ferry tickets online at www.jadrolinija.hr. But our friendly advice is do it on time. This new option that Jadrolinija, croatian national ferry company , introduced recently will definitely make island hopping arrangements and your Croatian adventure a lot easier to plan in advance, but it won't change the fact that summer time gets super busy and that 24 hour prior to departure will not secure your ferry/catamaran ticket. So do it on time!

Our transfer department, with more then 7 years of experience in arranging all different travel options to destinations across Croatia and abroad, will be your best choice if you are traveling to Hvar from Split airport and going to Dubrovnik or other islands afterwards. If you are staying in Split and going back to Split that you might as well try this new online system and book your tickets in advance.

All in all, it is a nice improvment for all of our guests but locals as well. On our web site under Transfers you can find catamaran and ferry  schedule as well as our contact details if you need more information or assistance.

And since we get this question a lot, please give me an opportunity to explain one more time 3 possible ways to come to an island. Four acctualy. First option is catamaran. Catamaran is a bigger, speed boat for foot passangers and it docks in Hvar harbor, directly into a city center in front of hotel Riva, Carpe Diem and Gariful restaurant. Ride takes 1 hour, and catamaran tickets in high season get sold out in a second. Ferry is a boat that takes both people and cars, but it docks to Stari Grad, that is 20 minutes bus or car drive to Hvar town. As a foot passanger you can always get a ticket for a ferry, but if you are traveling with a car you have to come at least 2 hours in advance and park your car in a line to make sure you will get in the ferry.

If we have bigger groups we always assist them with securing the spot on ferry, so do not hesitate to contact us if you need any assistance.

So those are 2 regular options. Third is renting a private, smaller speed boat that can pick you up wherever you need and in an hour you are in front of our hotels. And forth option is my favorite, sailing to Hvar! This way it is not a transfer, but pure joy and relaxation.
