During the course of any holiday, it’s a great idea to get out and explore as much as you can. If you’re visiting Croatia, there is so much to see and do that staying in just one place would be nothing short of criminal!

That doesn’t mean you need to backpack your way around, but you can easily head out to see one or two other places during the course of your stay to help you get the most out of your visit.

For instance, if you’re staying on the island of Hvar, maybe you’d like to head over to the mainland and visit Split and the surrounding area. Or, vice versa – if you’re staying in Split, heading over to an island will give you a totally different view of life in the country.

So, let us know show you how you get from Split to Hvar by ferry and then back to Split from Hvar by ferry.

The port of Hvar is connected to Split’s ferry port with regular crossings throughout the year. Four ferry companies serve this route – Kapetan Luka, Jadrolinija, Adriatic Fast Ferries, and TP Line.

The company you choose depends upon if you’re traveling by foot, i.e., no car, no animals, no bike, not a lot of luggage, or whether your visit is a little more heavy-duty.

There are far more crossings during the summer than there are in the winter. For instance, there are two crossings in the wintertime, extending up to around 17 during the peak summer months. Ferries Split to Hvar during the winter may be canceled at short notice if the weather is adverse.

Depending upon the company you choose, the crossing time can be anything between just 50 minutes and 2 hours 15 minutes. The average price is between 40Kn to 110Kn for foot passengers.

The last ferry depends upon the month and how many crossings there are. The earliest ferry is at 6.35 am, which is the same regardless of the month. For example, in August, the last ferry from Hvar to Split is at 7.50 pm.

The ferry between Split and Hvar is a very similar story to the one between Hvar and Split. It depends very much upon the season.

The same four ferry companies run this route, and there are up to 19 crossings during the summer months per day. During the winter, there are 2-3 per day. The crossing time is between 50 minutes up to 2 hours and 15 minutes, depending upon the time of year, the company you go with, and your requirements.

The first Split ferries to Hvar depart at 2 pm during the winter months, and there are only two per day. However, this increases as the year rolls on, and during the summer, e.g., in August, you can get a crossing as early as 7.40 am, with the last leaving at 6.15 pm.
