My personal tips for the Split to Dubrovnik trip

  • Under my tips for the route Split to Hvar, i said being early or late for the boarding have different advantages. This is not the case for the route Split to Dubrovnik. I would 100% recommend, to be early at the port, so you can secure some good window seats on the boat, why is that?
  • As I mentioned further up in the text, the ferries does not sail direct, but stops on Islands on the way, and having window seats, just gives you better access to the scenic views!
  • Bring drinks and smuggle some food onboard, 5 to 6 hours on a boat is a long time, so you will need some refreshment, you can buy some onboard, but it is way cheaper to bring it.
