Getting to Hvar From Dubrovnik

Ferry

Most people travel to Hvar by ferry (although some now get there by private yacht). People frequently ask how to take a ferry from Dubrovnik to Hvar Island. For most of the year it's not so easy! There are no direct daily ferries from Dubrovnik to Hvar Island that run all year.

Summer is another story. There are now two summer catamarans that connect Dubrovnik and Hvar:

from Split to Milna (Brac), Hvar, Korcula, Mljet and Dubrovnik (see the schedule);

from Dubrovnik to Korcula, Hvar, Bol (Brac) and Split. (see the schedule).

Driving
There are frequent daily year-round car ferries that run all year between Drvenik, on the mainland, and Sucuraj at the southeastern tip of Hvar Island. (see the schedule) The entire journey from Hvar Town to Dubrovnik takes about 3 1/2 hours, counting driving time from Hvar to Sucuraj, the car ferry and the drive down to Dubrovnik.
