Split's only international ferry connections are to Ancona. Ancona ferries run all year and are highly reliable. Naturally, there are extra Ancona ferries in summer to handle the influx of tourists. Only a very strong Adriatic storm causes the cancellation of a ferry and that is most likely to occur in winter.
Split is the main embarkation point for dozens of ferries to the Dalmatian islands, including Hvar, Brac, Vis and Korcula. Most ferries are car ferries run by Jadrolinija but there are also passenger ferries that can whisk you out to the islands of Hvar, Vis and Korcula.

It's important to note that local ferries to Split may not be reserved online. To reserve a place on a local car or passenger ferry, you must buy directly from a local Jadrolinija or travel agency. In the height of the summer season, it's wise to buy tickets on car ferries to the most popular islands as soon as possible. Passengers can always get on board but space for cars can fill up!

Split port is mammoth and busy. In purchasing a ticket make sure to ask the number of the berth and the name of the boat. It's easier to spot the boat from afar if you know the name. In the map below, notice that there are four docks: Lukobran; Sv Duje; Sv Petra; Sv Nikole. Cruise ships are at Lukobran, which is currently being enlarged and deepened to accommodate mega-cruisers. Sv Duje accommodates international ferries from Ancona and the rest of the local passengers and car ferries are between Sv Petra and Sv Nikole.
The cheapest and easiest way to go from Split Airport to Split Port is to take an airport bus which leaves you off at Obala Lazareta, just a short walk from the ferry port. Be aware it's not necessarily straightforward to find your boat. If you're pressed for time or travelling with a lot of luggage and you already have your ticket, it may be best to take a taxi from the airport directly to your boat (the taxi driver will know where to go). The coast is about 250Kn. See more on ground transport from Split Airport.
