Ferries to Croatia

Crescent-shaped Croatia is located in South Eastern Europe, across the Adriatic Sea from Italy and shares its borders with Hungary, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Serbia and Montenegro.

Croatia boasts over six thousand kilometres of coastline, four thousand of which belong to islands, cliffs and reefs. On the subject of islands, there are more than one thousand in Croatia, of which fifty are inhabited. The largest islands are Krk and Cres, while the other popular island destinations include Hvar, Brac, Korcula, Mljet, Vis and Pag.

The Croatian tourist boards slogan is ‘Mediterranean as it once was’, and whilst the country continues to march up the rankings of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, Croatia hasn’t really given in to mass tourism, despite the need to accommodate the continued increase in visitors.

Getting to Croatia by ferry requires a trip across the Adriatic Sea from Italy with many ports dotted along the coast, from as far north as Venice to as far south as Bari. There are numerous arrival ports to choose from in Croatia too, travelling both to the mainland and directly to the popular holiday islands.

Travelling among the Croatian islands is easy too with numerous crossings offered to and from the mainland as well as between the islands themselves.

Ferry crossings to Croatia from the North Adriatic are generally high speed passenger only jets and the services are seasonal however if you travel from further down the Adriatic Sea then you’ll find regular crossings using modern conventional ships with plenty to do on board.

  • "Excellent ferry journey from Croatia to Italy"

    Ferry check was open very early, easy to check in and fairly short queues. Boarding 1 hour and a half early meant ferry left on time. Easy to board. Staff very helpful on board, helped me to find my cabin. Cabin was comfortable and suited my needs at a very good price. Self service restaurant was used for breakfast - good varied menu and competative prices. Ferry arrived on time and disenbarking was easy. Would recommend to others

  • "Split to Ancona"

    We were pleasantly surprised by the standard of ship. The cabin was larger than we thought it would be. Although basic it had a toilet and shower and the bunks were comfortable with fresh clean sheets. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was a lovely way to get to Italy without any hassle.
