In July and August there are passenger ferries from Pesaro, Civitanova and Cesenatico to Rovinj, Mali Losinj, Hvar town, Stari Grad (Hvar), Split and Novalja. See the schedule and book here.
From Venice to Croatia the catamarans begin in late-April and end in mid-October. For some routes, the season is even shorter. 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.

New! 2018 Croatia Ferry Schedules!
