If you are looking to catch a ferry from Dubrovnik to Mljet there are a few things you should know. First of all between Dubrovnik and Mljet, there are passenger-only ferries or catamarans as we usually call them. Secondly, on Mljet Island there are 3 ports, Sobra, Polace and Pomena all 3 have a connection from Dubrovnik, so you should check which one is the better in relation to your accommodation on Mljet, or even better pick the ferry first and then accommodation, otherwise, you might have to spend quite a bit on a Taxi to move between the places. If you continue your travel e.g from Mljet to Hvar or Mljet to Lastovo, it is also wise to check the departure port for those catamarans before selecting your accommodation on the Island.
