Boarding in Prizna
Ferry port in Prizna is pretty simple – there’s no building at place, and there’s only one small caffe bar nearby to pass the time. Therefore, you’d need to wait in the line before boarding the ferry. During summer season, there can be heavy traffic jams, due to the fact there’s only one small and narrow road which leads to the boarding area. That is why we recommend arriving at the port as early as possible. Ferry line is operated by Jadrolinija, and it’s currently the only ferry route departing from Prizna.

It often happens that people travelling by, car or bus get a bit confused about how to calculate the price, so here are a few examples
Car with passengers
If you are e.g. 3 adults and a regular car going on the ferry, the price calculations for one-way tickets are the following, car (Less than 5 meters in length, and two meters in height) = 112 Kn + 3 adults (3 * 25 Kn) = 75 Kn, so in total, your price will be 187 Kn (112 + 75). As there is no discount for return tickets the round trip price will be 374 kn or roughly 124 Kn per person.
Bus with passengers
For a bus the way of calculating is different, if you have a bus with space for 30 people and 22 passengers, the price is 520 Kn, which includes the bus and the passengers!
