Krilo catamaran

Krilo

Krilo ferry company, also called Kapetan Luka, is one of the largest fast ferry / catamaran operators in Croatia. The company’s main port is Split port, from where it has catamaran lines to the hot spots on Croatian islands. The most popular routes from Krilo are Split to Hvar and Dubrovnik to Hvar. In addition to scheduled fast ferries, Krilo also offers the possibility of chartering one of the fast ferries for special events.

The Krilo catamarans do not have a unified design, some are white while some are in darker color, but all of them have either KRILO JET or www.krilo.hr clearly painted on the sites of the vessel. Therefore, you shouldn’t have a problem identifying the catamarans.

Krilo – Kapetan Luka FAQs

Where can I buy tickets for Krilo catamarans?

Krilo has sale points in each port, some are there own, others are travel agencies located at or near the port. Alternatively you can easily buy the ticket online.

How much luggage can I bring on board?

Krilo fast ferries have plenty of space to store the luggage, and the company is usually pretty flexible with it. You’re allowed to bring one bag up to 20kg in weight, but passengers usually didn’t have problems if they brought heavier bags on board.

Can I bring a bicycle on the Krilo catamaran?

    Can we take the 10 am from split to korcula, leave our bags somewhere safe at korcula port, spend four hours on korcula then take the 16.30 onto dubrovnik? do we have to buy two separate tickets or can we get one allowing for break of journey?

    • Maja   •  

      Dear Mike,

      the 10 am departure that you’re referring to is the catamaran line from Split to Korcula, but it doesn’t continue to Dubrovnik. Also, there is no morning departure for this line until June.
      There are also two more catamaran lines from Split to Dubrovnik that stop in Korcula. They all start operating during April or May with morning departures from Split at 7:30 and 7:40 am and afternoon departures from Dubrovnik at 4:00 and 4:30 pm.
      Regarding the tickets, you always buy a ticket for a single journey, i.e. you buy two separate tickets, one for Split – Korcula, the other for Korcula – Dubrovnik.
      In the end, we suggest you check directly with the port in Korcula whether they have some kind of luggage storage service they provide.

      Best regards,
      FerryCroatia Team

    Hello, does the catamaran arrive to Hvar from Pomena ( Korcula ) then from Hvar to Vis, Vis to Milna and Milna to Split. Thank you.

    • Maja   •  

      Hi,

      if referring to a catamaran line Pomena (Mljet) – Split operated by Krilo, then the catamaran stops at the following islands and ports along the way:
      – Korcula (Old Town)
      – Hvar Town (Hvar island)
      – Milna (Brac island)
      So, Pomena port is located on Mljet island, and the line does not travel to Vis island, unfortunately.
      Hope this is helpful.

Please could you tell me the port names that each stop arrives at and the location on the islands, this will help in booking accommodation. Thank you in advance

      Hi Justin,

      no problem! So, here is the list of ports where you stop, from Dubrovnik to Split:
      1. In Dubrovnik, the port is called Gruž and it is located about 3 km NW of Dubrovnik City Walls.
      2. On Korcula island, the port is also called Korčula, it is located literally in Korčula Old Town.
      3. On Hvar island, the port is also called Hvar, located in Hvar Old Town.
      4. On Brac island, the port is called Bol, located in Bol (where the famous Zlatni Rat or Golden Horn beach is)

    Hi. Is it too early to buy a ticket for July 2022? Im trying but it keeps saying “error.” I just want to make sure I can get from Dubrovnik to Korcula. Im freaking out because I can’t even find busses that are even running from Zadar to Dubrovnik because of Covid. Im going to ferry out to Korcula from Dubrovnik then to Split. I already booked my rooms for both places and I have no idea how Im getting there!

    • Dino   •  

      Hello Anamarija,

      Yes, you can buy tickets immediately, for both the bus and ferry route you’re looking for.
      For bus, just use the search form on our platform GetByBus.
      Ferry tickets from Korcula to Dubrovnik can be bought on our other platform called GetByFerry, here.

    • Maja   •  

      Hi Chip,

      Yes, there is, but you will have to buy a ticket for yourself and bicycle online upfront as there are only a few places for bicycles on each departure.

  16. Nakul Jain   •  

    Hi Team,

    I have 2 questions:
    1) My Kid is 2.5 years old, do i need to buy ticket for him?
    2) Split-Bol, where is the location or stop of Catamaran in Split, how far it is from old town and how soon we have to reach to the catamaran before the departure?

    • Maja   •  

      Hi Nakul,

      1) Usually, children aged 0-3 travel for free, but I suggest you double-check that information with the company.
      2) The catamaran departs from the main city port, the pier is located at the beginning of the port, you will see Krilo – Kapetan Luka stand. It is recommended to arrive about 30 minutes before the departure.

  19. Kerry   •  

    Hi, We will be traveling for several weeks and will most likely have more than 1 bag for 1 of us. Can we pay to bring on an extra bag? Please advise. Thank you!

    • Maja   •  

      Hi Kerry,

      officially, you’re allowed to bring one bag up to 20kg in weight. However, passengers usually don’t have problems if they bring heavier bags on board. The company is pretty flexible regarding this and it all largely depends on the space left in the catamaran.

  20. Michael   •  

    Hi Maja,

    Where exactly is Kapetan Luka Ferry terminal located in Dubrovnik? I am going to Korcula and have 2hrs to make my connection from the airport. This is a fairly tight timeline considering that a flight might be a bit late.
    Do you know if airport shuttle stops close to the ferry terminal?

    • Maja   •  

      Hi Michael,

      Krilo – Kapetan Luka ferry terminal is located in Gruž Port, the main port in Dubrovnik.
      Yes, the shuttle bus stops basically in the port, so you won’t have problems finding a terminal on foot.
      The ride from the airport to the port is around 30 minutes, so you should get there on time.
