Dubrovnik to Split - Bus/Ferry?

Hi,

I am going to be travelling into Dubrovnik, and then onward to Split. I have been looking at various forum posts, searched google too - but still dont know what is the best and most economical way to transfer from Dubrovnik to Split. Could not find any direct ferry (i read that there is one running twice a week). From what I read, buses on this route are quite unreliable.

Would appreciate any help/suggestion

cheers

Buses - or renting a car - are the ONLY option. There is no ferry

There are catamarans in the summer. The buses are fairly reliable, but sometimes run late at busy times because of traffic delays on the coastal road.

@apt22-Thank you for the reply. I am somehow unable to find any catamarans listed. That would be the ideal way for me to transfer between these 2 places. Trying to explore the shared taxi/transfer option too

You can look up the timetable for the Krilo catamarans for summer 2017 here. https://www.krilo.hr/en/sailing-schedule/

Summer 2018 is likely to be similar. Jadrolinija also runs a catamaran in the morning in high season, although it takes a longer route.

When are you going? I guess I have never heard that the buses were unreliable in Croatia.

The buses are very good and the catamaran runs daily.

If you're going in late spring or summer, there's the catamaran which is pleasant (the Krilo company operates the route). The one that makes a stop at Hvar has an open deck, the one that makes a stop at Makarska doesn't. You will also bypass the Neum corridor (BiH), which you would have to go through if travelling by bus/car, etc. This can be busy during the summer months.
