All international ferries TO Croatia originate in Italy from a handful of Italian ports: Ancona, Bari, Venice and Trieste. (Ferries AROUND Croatia connect the Croatian islands with the coast. See more on Croatia local ferries)

Naturally, there are far more ferries between Italy and Croatia in the summer. Each year a handful of ferry companies issue their new schedules and routes for the summer season. Most of the expanded services start around April but some are July and August only. The season ends by mid- October.

Ferry Companies

The schedules of ferries to Croatia changes every year. That a company ran Croatia ferries last year is not a guarantee that they will run a ferry to Croatia this year. The only exception is Jadrolinija, the state ferry company, which is sure to have a ferry from Italy to Croatia all year every year.

Jadrolinija Croatia's national boat line runs

car ferries from Ancona to Split and Zadar that stop at Stari Grad (Hvar) in the summer.

Trieste Lines runs fast summer passenger ferries from Trieste to Piran(Slovenia),Pula and Rovinj.

Venezia Linesruns summer passenger boats from Venice to Pula , Rovinj, Porec and Umag.

If you're taking a ferry to Croatia,  I strongly  recommend that you buy trip cancellation insurance. Find out why.

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.
