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.

Do the tickets need to be printed?

We do recommend to print the tickets and have them with you when boarding. However, if you have tickets on your phone, showing the QR code / PDF of the tickets when boarding should be fine as well.

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?

Yes you can, 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.

Can I bring my dog on the catamaran?

Yes you can if you follow Krilo’s rules which are the following:
Muzzle is needed for all animals.
PETS can only be transported if they do not present danger or disturbance to passengers or boat.
Owners take the risk of travel and are responsible for any damages.
Dogs need to have a muzzle (except for a blind person’s guide dog) and lead on the apron, cats in boxes and birds in the cage.
Dogs and cats must have proper vaccination documents.
On the high speed lines, small pets are allowed in the catamaran salon. Small pets are transported exclusively in the bag for carriage and transport of pets (transporter soft bag) – 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 wrist during the entire journey. One passenger must have only one bag with a pet.
Large pets are only allowed if the technical conditions are met on board (special boxes).
If you are in doubt regarding bringing a pet, you should contact Krilo by mail.

Isn’t Krilo a name of the city?

Yes Krilo is the name of a city, and the Krilo ferry company is from that city.

Does the Krilo catamaran operate the whole year?

No, except for the line Split – Hvar – Korcula all lines operate only in the summer season, usually from the beginning of April till the end of October.

    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.

      Best regards,

    Hi Maja,

    We are going to be using the ferry service in August to travel from Dubrovnik – Korcula, Korcula – Hvar, Hvar – Brac and Brac – Split, stopping at least one night in each location. 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

    • Maja   •  

      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)
      5. In Split, you arrive at the main port, right next to Old Town.

    Hello,
    Say me please, where is the departure point by Krilo in Zadar: old town port or Gazenica port?

    • Maja   •  

      Hi Eugene,

      the departing point for Krilo line Zadar – Silba – Ilovik – Mali Lošinj – Susak – Unije – Pula is located across the Old Town, on Barkajol pier, right next to the marina.
      You can access the pier from Obala kneza Trpimira street.

        Hi Maia,

        Just confirming this is still accurate: the catamaran from Zadar to Mali Losinj departs from the old port next to the marina, NOT the main ferry terminal south of town?

          yes. that is correct.

          • Maja   •  

            Hi Chris,

            according to our information, it departs from the pier on Obala kneza Trpimira.
            However, I suggest you double-check that, if the Tourist Info in Zadar gave you different information, it might be that there were some changes recently.

    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!

      Yes, you can buy tickets immediately, for both the bus and ferry route you’re looking for.

    Hi Team,

    I have 2 questions:

    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.

      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.

    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.

      on the catamaran, you will find drinks and snacks only, so bringing your own food might be a better option.

    Hello,
    I wanted to check if the ferries/catamarans are running on schedule since covid? I will of course check with the individual carrier but broadly speaking?
    You’ve said above that only drinks and snacks are available on board – is there a bar or something to pass the time? Our journey is 3 hours.
    And last question, can we sit outside on board, or inside only?

    Thank you!

    • Maja   •  

      Hi Hannah,

      so far, everything is back to normal. All the ferries and catamarans are operating according to the official schedules.
      Yes, there is a small bar on ferries which serves drinks and some snacks.
      And yes, ferries have outdoor seats, but catamarans usually don’t have much space outside but you can always go outside and find some spot if there’s no big crowd.

  25. Nuno   •  

    Hello,

    I bought a ticket that was supposed to connect Bol (Brac) to Dubrovnik. I got an e-mail less than 48h before departure that this line was cancelled, which forced me to buy another ticket, from Milna (Brac) to Dubrovnik.
    Of course, I had to catch a taxi between Bol and Milna on the day of the trip, and I’m seeking compensation for this, as it is an additional expense caused by Krilo. We are not talking about €5 or 30kn. I think it’s very poor customer service to cancel a line less than 2 days before the event itself and expect that ‘everything will be fine’ by just issuing a refund.

    Regards,
    Nuno

    • Dino   •  

      Hello Nuno,

      We’re sorry you had to go through all that hassle. We agree that last-minute cancellations are not a good practice. The best you can do is contact the carrier’s customer support, and see if there’s anything that can be done on their side.

      Hi Hannah

      the Krilo catamaran from Korcula to Dubrovnik departs from the terminal in Korcula which is located northwest of car ferry port Domince (if looking at the map). So, not the one overlooking Badija island, but the one where the church of St. Mark is located.

    Hi there,

    Where is the larger baggage stored on board? Is it checked in separately or stored in the same area as passengers? (ie will I be able to access it during the trip?)

    What is the check in time? There’s nothing on the website or the tickets unfortunately.

    Thank you

    • Morten   •     Author

      Hi Alex,

      there are shelf racks for luggage, on most ferries they are at the rear end. If the departure if full the shelf racks might also be and people then leave luggage on the floor around the rack, but nevertheless you should be able to access your luggage during the trip (Its not in a locked space). I would recommend you to be at the peer at least 15-20 minutes before the scheduled departure time, if you travel from Split i would even say 30 minutes before, as it takes some time to locate the right ferry.

    • Maja   •  

      Hi Miguel,

      generally, it is not necessary to book ferries in advance, only during the peak season in the summer to secure a place on the ferry.
      If you want to book the tickets in advance, you can do it the day or two before the departure.

      most ferry companies announce such information on their official websites (in the case of Krilo – on their Facebook page), so it is good to check it during the day of the departure (or even earlier).
