What could be more romantic than approaching Dubrovnik by water? Unfortunately, ferry connections to Dubrovnik are somewhat limited. The only international ferry connection to Dubrovnik is the Bari-Dubrovnik ferry which runs all year and more frequently in summer. (See the current Bari-Dubrovnik ferry timetable).
Book Dubrovnik Ferries
At least from Bari you can get ferries to Greece and Albania if you're heading further south. Find out more about ferries to Croatia.
Another handy summer-only ferry is this route from Jadrolinija that leaves every morning from Dubrovnik, going on to stop at Korcula, Hvar, beautiful Bol beach on Brac island and on to Split before returning to Dubrovnik in mid-afternoon. See the schedule.
This summer only fast boat whizzes out of Split in the morning, and makes stops at Bol, Makarska, Korcula, Mljet and Dubrovnik before returning. See the schedule.
Dubrovnik's port is in the Gruz neighborhood (see Dubrovnik's neighborhoods on a map), about 2.5km from the Old Town and about 2.5km from Lapad, where most hotels are located. You can take local buses from the port or a taxi to your hotel. There are toilets at the port, an ATM, WiFi, snacks, drinks and left-luggage facilities.
For further convenience, you might want to pre-book your Dubrovnik port transfer with Viator. It's a no-hassle way to go directly from your boat to your hotel in Dubrovnik or even further to Orebic, Korcula and Cavtat. More.
