  • The most important thing to know about the ferry from Hvar to Split, is when to arrive at the port. As you can see from my photo below, the lines of people can be very very very long, so you have two options.
    • Be early, boil in the sun and get a good seats next to each other on the ferry.
    • Be late, and avoid boiling in the sun (And if you did not buy a ticket up front, risk that the departure is sold out).
  • Bring something to drink, you can buy drinks on the boat, but I find it quite expensive.
