Dubrovnik Online Guide



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 March to October. The trip takes from 7 1/2 to 9 hours. Schedules from Dubrovnik are on the left; from Bari on the right.

Booking the Bari-Dubrovnik Ferry

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.

Click here for schedules and online booking.

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

Croatia Ferries--News

New! 2018 Croatia Ferry Schedules!
Jadrolinija shipHere we are at the beginning of a new year and with a new set of ferry schedules governing trips from the coast to Croatia’s best islands. As usual, Jadrolinija, Croatia’s state ferry line, is first off the mark with a complete package of car ferry schedules. Only Jadrolinija handles car ferries and the company’s schedules change little from year to year. Passenger ferry schedules are much more fluid as Jadrolinija and other companies adjust to the seasonal flux of visitors. Many of the passenger ferries are summer only and most do not see their schedules finalized until the spring. Continue reading →  More.
