My personal tips for the ferry from Dubrovnik to Split

  • If you are not in a hurry, you should for sure take the ferry and not the bus on this route, the scenic views is worthwhile the longer travel time.
  • Bring drinks and smuggle some food onboard, 5 to 6 hours on a boat is a long time, so you will need some refreshment, you can buy some onboard, but it is way cheaper to bring it.
  • Get a seat at the window, you will have some amazing view on the Islands on the way.
  • Consider making a stop in Korcula, you can take early morning ferry to Korcula town, spend 3-4 hours there and then take another ferry from Korcula to Split.
