Getting from Dubrovnik to Hvar

Travelling to Croatia next September and on Tuesday 18th need to get from Dubrovnik to Hvar. If this doesn't work with ferries is it possible to get there other ways eg bus to Korcula and then charter boat?

Jadrolinija is the ferry operator for ferries that go from Dubrovnik to Hvar. Check them out at www.jadrolinija.hr

I don't think they go on tuesdays. Your best option price and timewise would be to go to Split by bus (buses go every hour from bus terminal and it takes about 4 hours to get to Split). From there you take either a ferry or a fast boat to Hvar. They operate aprox. every 1-3 hours in the season.

Have fun, Jernej

Thanks Jerne. So no chance of chartering boat in Korcula?

Bus or car up to Drvenik and then ferry across to Sucuraj (only a short journey by ferry) then drive or bus across Hvar to Hvar town if that is where you want to get to on Hvar.

Croatia Airlines fly between the Dubrovnik and Split.

In May, I'll be flying from Dubrovnik to Split, spend two nights there, then take the ferry to Hvar.

The flight takes only 35 mins, and costs around 35 Euro (min) depends on the time of the flight.

This works better for me, than spending 4 hours on the bus.

But if you need to get to Hvar right away, taking the flight to Split may not help a lot.

There is a fast catarmarin (MV Krilo) that goes from Korcula to Hvar Town (and then on to Split). Sept 18 should be in their half season timetable so have a look at www.korcula.net, getting there section. It leaves early in the morning.

Thanks everyone. Getting to Split and then ferry to Hvar sounds best fall back option. Still hopeful of being able to pay someone with a boat to take us from Korcula to Hvar. We did this in Turkey a few years back - went to the marinas and hired a boat with a skipper. There are 8 of us so we have some collective resources. Does anyone know if this is a goer in Croatia and in particular Korcula?

Hello All - I have the same challenge - going from Dubrovnik to Hvar, this Saturday July 4th. Can someone recommend the latest method of travel?

It appears that the Gadrolinga ferry does not stop at Hvar this Saturday! :(

Take the bus from Dubrovnik to Split and then get on the next catamaran or ferry out to Hvar. That's about your only option.

But then the problem would be getting from Sucaraj to Hvar town. I don't think there is much public transport from Sucaraj so that will be a problem once you get out there.
