Jadrolinija Catamaran

Jadrolinija

Jadrolinija is the main ferry company in Croatia. The company has more than 100 year long history. It is based in Rijeka, but operates from all four major ports in Croatia – Rijeka, Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik.
In total the company has more than 50 car ferries, catamarans, fast ferries and ships in operation. Some ships in the fleet are older boats which used to sail for other companies. However, Jadrolinija also has many new ferries which operate on specific routes, such as ferries used between Split and Supetar.

Jadrolinija operates many government subvented lines to ensure that the islands are connected to the mainland. This means not just summer routes, but also routes in the offseason and winter, when there are not that many tourists. In addition, it also operates majority of the ferry lines between Croatia and Italy, which includes Zadar to Ancona, Split to Ancona and Dubrovnik to Bari routes.

Jadrolinija FAQs

Can I bring my pet on the Jadrolinija ferry or catamaran?

According to the Jadrolinija Terms of transportation the following rules apply for pets:
“Pets may be carried only if they do not pose a threat or disturbance for passengers or the ship, and may not be taken into closed passenger areas. Owners take responsibility for all travel risks and for any damages. Dogs must wear a muzzle (with the exception of guide dogs) and be on a leash, cats in travel boxes and birds in cages. Dogs and cats must have up-to-date vaccination records.”
“On high speed lines (Catamarans), small pets are allowed in the catamaran salon. Small pets must be transported exclusively in a carrying bag designed for the transport of pets (transporter soft bag) of maximum dimensions 45 x 35 x 25 cm. The bottom of the bag must be watertight. The total weight of the bag with a pet should not exceed 8 kg. The bag must be kept under the seat or in the passenger’s lap during the entire journey. One passenger can only carry one bag with a pet. Large pets are only allowed if the technical conditions on board are met (special boxes).”

Where can I buy tickets for the Jadrolinija ferry?

Jadrolinija has sales points in all the ports, if you don’t want to hassle with buying the ticket at the port, you can also buy tickets online for most ferries.

Can I bring my bicycle on the Jadrolinija ferry or catamaran?

On the car ferry, you can bring your bicycle, you will need to buy an adult ticket for it. On catamarans / fast ferries, bringing a bicycle is not possible.

How much luggage can I bring on Jadrolinija ferry?

On car ferry lines luggage up to 100 kg is allowed, on catamarans / passenger only ferries, the free luggage is limited to 20 kg per person.

I am trying to buy a ticket for the car ferry, why does it say I am not guaranteed space on a specific departure?

Many ferry ports do not have a car queuing system, due to narrow streets or small ports, so cars are loaded in the order they arrived at the ferry port. That is why Jadrolinija can not guarantee you space on a specific departure.

      Hi Fontaine,

      as it looks for now there should be no problem crossing from Trpanj to Ploce on the 19th of July, neither with dog nor with car, you of course have to follow the guidelines of Jadrolinija when bringing a dog. The timetable for the 19 of July you can see by using the search form above.

    Hi,

    Can you bring a car on the ferry from Dubrovnik port to Hvar at the 7am slot? Also the website does not have tickets available online to purchase for this time. Are they available at the port?

    Thank you

      Hi,

      on the 7:00 am departure provided by Jadrolinija that you’re referring to operates a catamaran that doesn’t transport vehicles.
      When you click on “Buy” on the desired departure, you should be able to see how many available tickets are left. If you don’t have the “Buy” option for that date, it might be that all tickets are sold.

      Best regards,

    Dali može da se kupi on-line na ovome linku
    Najlpša hvala na odgovoru!

    • Maja   •  

      Poštovana Majo,

      prema trenutnim informacijama, trajekt će prometovati navedenog datuma, no red plovidbe podložan je promjenama uslijed situacije s koronavirusom.
      Najjednostavniji način je da karte kupite direktno na službenoj stranici Jadrolinije.

      Srdačno,

    Hi
    If I buy a 2 tickets for a 4pm crossing (split/Hvar) for 1st Aug but am able to make an earlier slot (flight arrives at 12.35 split and I’m unsure how long customs is taking currently) will the tickets be valid for an earlier crossing?
    Thanks!

    • Maja   •  

      Dear Hannah,

      since Split – Hvar route is operated by catamarans, you can use the ticket for the exact departure, it won’t be valid for any other departure on that day.
      However, since the departure point is located right next to Split Old Town, this can be a good opportunity to see the main sights in Split such as the Diocletian’s Palace 🙂

      Best regards,
