NOTE: as of 23rd July, this catamaran route is now run by Kapetan Luka. Please see the current timetable on their website.
A popular route, connecting the northern Croatian coastline with its midpoint (more or less!), this is the only direct connection from Istria to Dalmatia by sea. The catamaran also stops at the islands of Unije, Susak, Losinj, Ilovik and Silba en route.
This line was re-introduced last year and run by Jadrolinija, the main ferry company in Croatia which runs many ferry and catamaran routes. However, as of 1st January 2018, the line is now being run by Split-based company Catamaran Line. They use their catamaran named ‘Bisovo’ for this route, which can carry 325 passengers.
Something that’s very useful to many travellers – this catamaran runs year-round, as can be seen from the different timetables below.
