The Bari-Dubrovnik ferry was once the main link between Italy and southern Dalmatia but the rise in low-cost airlines has diminished the usefulness and hence the frequency of this line. At one time, Croatia's national ferry line, Jadrolinija, ran this route all winter. The ferry runs only from April to October. The trip takes from 7 1/2 to 9 hours.
The Bari to Dubrovnik ferry is a car ferry and the service is handled by Jadrolinija, Croatia's national ferry company. As with any international car ferry, I strongly recommend that you book it in advance. In order to book the car ferry, follow these easy steps:
1. Select your departure port (Bari or Dubrovnik)
2. Select your arrival port (Dubrovnik or Bari)
3. Select the month and dates of your departure; Note that there is a 20% reduction on the return portion of a round-trip ticket
4. Select your desired accommodation; Note that some accommodation may not be available on some departures.
5. Choose your vehicle make, model and, if applicable, the plate number. If you do not know the plate number (i.e. for a rental car) simply enter "rental" in the space provided; you can notify the company later when you know the number
6. Follow instructions for paying by credit card and await your email confirmation and ticket which will be emailed to you.
Length: 122.06 m
Arrive two hours before embarkment. Bring your passport or other identifying document (see Croatia border formalities) and proceed directly to the Jadrolinija stall of the main ferry terminal. You will receive your boarding documents and information about the location and boarding time of your ferry. You will then be directed to pass through passport control.
