Dubrovnik To Split Catamaran

Both Dubrovnik and Split are top Croatia travel destinations in, and so popular among tourists. This is the reason why high-speed catamarans operating between Split and Dubrovnik are so popular that they sell out quickly, so you have to book in advance.

A pleasant boat ride, with stops on the islands, takes from 4h 30min to 5h 55min, depending on the company (prices start from €47). Choose from KRILO, TP LINE or JADROLINIJA, each one offering one daily departure in both directions (compare catamarans here!)
