Port Of Dubrovnik

The port of Dubrovnik is situated in the neighbourhood of Gruz, roughly 3 km northwest from the Old Town. This is from where all catamaran and ferries depart and arrive. It's also cruise port, where cruise ships dock when visiting Dubrovnik.

Occasionally, some cruise ships will drop anchor close to the Old Town and will put you in tender boats and take you over to Old port.

Gruz port is easy to reach from other parts of the city, either on foot, by city buses or by taking a taxi. You can take any bus passing by Gruz bay.

Dubrovnik port has regular year-round connection with nearby Elaphite islands, Mljet and Lastovo. Starting from April, modern and fast catamarans sails between Dubrovnik and Korcula, Hvar, Brac and Split (in high season this also includes the city of Makarska on the mainland).

The only international ferry from Dubrovnik is one to Bari in the south of Italy. It's possible to take a car as this is a large car/passenger ferry that sails across Adriatic in 10 hours. There are no ferries between Croatia and Greece - you can travel only via Italy (Ancona and Bari).

Sailing schedules of ferries/catamarans are announces well in-advance. We suggest you to book your tickets at least 1-2 months ahead of time, especially if travelling in high season. This way you'll secure the spot on your desired catamaran/ferry.
