Given the many, many islands off the country’s coastline, it’s highly likely that you’ll be utilising ferries in Croatia when you visit the country. The main ferry company in Croatia is Jadrolinija and they operate the vast majority of ferry and catamaran routes in Croatia, although other companies do also exist – see a complete list below.
Boats and ferries sail the Adriatic connecting major ports with almost all the inhabited islands all year round, with many routes having a higher frequency of sailings during the summer months. Some catamaran services only operate during peak summer months – such as the G & V Line service from Dubrovnik to Korcula.
Note: a famous (slow) ferry line that sailed down much of Croatia’s coast – connecting Rijeka with Split, Dubrovnik and some of the islands – that was run by Jadrolinija for 60 years – no longer operates.
