In the last weeks start of operations on several seasonal ferry routes has been announced, as well as the launching of two new routes.

Popular coastal ferry Rijeka - Split - Stari Grad - Korčula - Dubrovnik, on which last year more than 40 000 passengers travelled, will cruise the Adriatic Sea this year too.

Timetable remained approximately the same, but, unfortunately, one stop hes been cancelled - Sobra on Mljet. But, for those who don't need to travel to Sobra it brings a positive change, and that is a bit faster trip. For example, sailing from Korčula to Dubrovnik now takes three hours and 30 minutes, instead of the previous four hours and 30 minutes.

There is something that certainly will not make passengers happy - price increase. For example, a passenger ticket for deck transportation between Korčula and Dubrovnik now costs 130,00 HRK, as opposed to previous 92,00 HRK, while the transportation of a car on the same route now costs 370,00 HRK instead of previous 349,00 HRK.

Two new catamaran routes have been confirmed as well and both of them include Split, Hvar and Korčula. The first one is Jadrolinija's fast ferry route Split - Hvar - Korčula, while Kapetan Luka runs on a slightly different course Split - Milna (Brač) - Hvar - Korčula - Dubrovnik.

Given the popularity of the trips between Split and Hvar and frequent requests for new routes to Dubrovnik, these new routes are great news for all fans of the Croatian islands. Prices for the new catamaran routes have not yet been published, and we will publish them as soon as carriers do it.
