    Additional travel information can be found at the Jadrolinija and Krilo Jet websites. To be absolutely sure about departure times use the transportation company websites, due to the fact that timetable in some very rare cases can be subject to minor changes.

    NOTE: The trip by the airport bus from the Split airport to the harbour takes about 30-45 min.
    The tickets for catamarans can be bought in the kiosk "Jadrolinija" few meters away from the final bus-stop (Google maps view of Split harbour).
    When buying the ferry/catamaran tickets ask where/when you have to embark.
    For those traveling without the car we strongly recommend to use the direct catamaran line (cheaper and faster than ferry).
