Local (domestic) ferries
Ferry is a great way to travel around the Croatian Islands. We have listed some local ferry information here for you, but please also check the ferry sites directly as we provide basic information only and they might have changes at the last minute. We cannot book any of these domestic ferry lines for you unfortunately, though ferry tickets (plus delivery to you at your hotel when we pick you up for the ferry) are included in our Independent Island Hopper Tours!
Please research the ferries very carefully yourself to ensure you can get between your locations on the day and time that you need. We don’t list every ferry here on our website, just the most commonly used by our clients. Please check the ferry websites yourself for any extra services and contact those companies directly from their site with any queries about domestic ferries such as changed timetables or price lists.
Domestic ferries must be booked online directly by the client using their credit card.
Ferry tickets are included when you book one of our fabulous Island Hopping Package Tours, which you can find on our website here. Our Island Hoppers include all accommodation, transfers and ferry tickets with everything organised for you and you just relax and enjoy your holiday.
If you prefer to do your island hopping by small cruise ship, you can check out our cruises here: Current Availability – All Cruises.
Otherwise, please book the ferry directly yourself using links below, it is a simple process. Please use the “Search journey schedule and buy tickets online” section for domestic ferry bookings on Jadrolinija. If you do not see the ferry available in that search selection then you must purchase tickets on the day in Croatia (eg, car ferries or small local ferries like GV or Blue Line), or there is no ferry on that day. Please check the timetables carefully. If there is no ferry on that day then please contact Jadrolinija or KriloJet (Kapetan Luka) directly for all ferry timetable enquiries through their website.
Reservations on car ferries and small local boat lines are not possible. You must purchase tickets on the spot on the day for all domestic car ferries. We cannot book these for you. First come, first served on those ones, so please make sure you arrive early.
