How to Get from Split to the Islands: 2017 Guide
Total Croatia Sailing is the latest addition to the Total Croatia News family. As part of this site, we look forward to bringing you the latest news from the Adriatic, including how to get around. Kicking off with this, one of the most frequently asked questions – how to get from Split to the islands!
You’re enjoying your summer vacation in Split, but want to visit some of the wonderful neighbouring islands? There are multiple boat services ready to help you get around the area, including Jadrolinija, Kapetan Luka, Bura Line and Linijska Nacionalna Plovidba (LNP) who offer numerous lines connecting Split with nearby islands, both in summer months and throughout the year.
We prepared a handy guide through the often confusing ferry timetables, with all available ferry and catamaran lines listed according to your destination of choice. Most departure times apply to the period from 2 June to 1 October 2017, but you’ll find all future changes in schedules in the timetables provided on featured agencies’ websites.
All listed prices apply to one-way adult tickets. Ferry tickets for children up to 10 years of age as a rule come at half the adult price, while catamaran tickets cost the same for all passengers. Keep in mind the listed fees for ferry car transport are the minimum amount, so make sure to check prices online for other vehicles you want to take on board.
