In July and August there are passenger ferries from Pesaro and Cesenatico to Rovinj, Mali Losinj, Pula, Rab and Novalja. See the schedule and book here.
From Venice to Croatia the catamarans begin with a connection to Rovinj and Porec on 29 April and end the 4 October. For some routes, the season is even shorter. Pula begins on 19 June and ends early September. Umag begins on 25 June and ends in late August.
Operated by Venezia Lines, the height of the season is July and August where you will find the most frequent ferries and the highest prices. Note that the schedules are arranged to make day trips from Croatia to Venice, not vice-versa. No matter when you go, I strongly advise that you buy your tickets online in advance.
Prices range from €59 to €82 depending on the port, the day of the week and the season. Click here for prices and booking.
Atlas-Kompas also runs round-trip excursions from the same Istrian ports to Venice during the summer season. Click here for schedules, prices and online booking.
If the ferry schedules are not convenient, consider taking one of the daily buses from Italy to Istria.
