My tips for the ferry from Split to Supetar

  • In the summer the ferry can get very full, so if you are more persons travelling with car, you should do the following.
    • Buy a ticket for the car and the driver and buy a separate ticket for the rest of the passengers.
    • Those not on the driver ticket, should board the ferry as food passengers, doing this will secure you good seats on the ferry, as foot passengers board first.
  • Sitting outside is great, but 45 minutes in a backing sun can be challenging.
  • As I always recommend on ferries, bring drinks and food instead of buying on the boat.
  • You can bring your dog, but it has to where a muscle. Dogs are not allowed in the inside area, but I have a small Westie, and never had any problems taking him inside.
  • If you need to continue to Bol on Brac, you have taxis waiting at the peer. A cheaper option is to take the bus from the bus station, which is a few hundred meters from where the ferry dock.
