Zadar does not have a ferry connection to other towns on the Dalmatian coast but there is a passenger ferry that connects Zadar to Pula on the Istrian coast all year. The service is Friday only in winter. See the schedule.

Also from northern Croatia is a new service that connects Rijeka with Zadar, stopping at Krk, Lopar (Rab island) and Novalja (Pag island) daily from 15 June to 15 September. The service is handled by G&VLine Jadera. Timetables and online booking available on the website.

Zadar Ports

Zadar has two ferry ports: the City Port and the Gazenica Port opened in 2014 for cruise ships and in 2015 for local ferries (see more). The City Port handles the Ancona Zadar ferry and all passenger ferries while Gazenica handles all local car ferries.

Gazenica Port is 3km southeast of the city center. See this map:

There is parking, car rental and taxis at the port. Additionally, the port is served by bus line 9, running at least every 30 minutes to the Zadar bus station where there are connections to local, domestic and international buses.
