From Dubrovnik to Korčula, Lopud and more

0

June 21, 2022 – In the new TCN series, we take a look at which destinations you can visit by ferry from the main Croatian ports. In this second part of the Croatia 2022 Ferry Guide, where to go from the port of Dubrovnik?

When advertising the Adriatic Sea and the Croatian islands abroad, the experience of being on board a sailboat, yacht or catamaran is usually highlighted. However, there is no destination that a Croatian ferry can’t reach, and why not mention that it’s definitely worth saving a good amount of euros on yacht charter and crew?

Today we will tell you more about the island destinations you can reach from Dubrovnik ferry port.

First of all, how to buy your ferry tickets? There are three ways. The first is via the official Jadrolinija website. In it, you can not only see updated sailing times, but you can also buy your tickets online. Simply choose the port of departure, the port of destination and the date of your trip, and you will find the available timetables. Once you have chosen the time and number of tickets, in addition to filling in all your personal information, you can proceed to pay for your tickets online with a credit or debit card.

The second method is to use the official Jadrolinija mobile application, available on the Apple App Store and Google Playstore for Android. The app is very easy to use and just like on the website, just select the port of departure and you will be able to see the ports you can travel to from the one you have selected. The process is very similar, and you’ll find it even more comfortable and intuitive to use. Payment also allows the use of credit and debit cards.

Finally, the third type of payment is the most traditional and has its advantages. All ferry ports in Croatia have a Jadrolinija office, where you can buy your tickets in person. Sometimes one can be a bit confused before buying their tickets both on the website and in the app, so having a Jadrolinija agent to guide you is a big help.

Where is Dubrovnik ferry port? Unlike previously covered cities like Split or Rijeka, the port of Dubrovnik is not located in the old part of the city. The port of Dubrovnik is located in the bay of Gruž, a 10-minute drive from the Old Town.
