At the moment, EasyJet is the only company offering direct flights between Venice and Dubrovnik, but only during July and August (once a week).

Venice to Dubrovnik ferries

Note that there are NO direct ferry connections between these two cities. If you would like to take a ferry, then one of the options would be taking a train (which is fairly cheap) down the Italian side of the Adriatic to Bari and from there catch JADROLINIJA's overnight ferry to Dubrovnik (find the latest sailing schedule and book online!)

In addition, you can reach by train port of Ancona (central Italy) and from there catch one of two ferries sailing to Split (which is 200 km north of Dubrovnik). 

Once you reach Split you can easily travel down the coast to Dubrovnik (choose from a high-speed catamaran, one of many buses, a private car transfer or driving a car - travel time is from 3 hours to 4.5 hours depending on the means of transport).
