Boat Routes

Dubrovnik is connected to nearby islands by regular boat routes.

Boat Routes

Boat to Lokrum Island
The boat to the island of Lokrum (special forest reserve in the vicinity of Dubrovnik) departs every half hour during the tourist season from the Old City Harbour (in the historic town centre) and docks at the island of Lokrum in Portoč Cove. The ride takes about ten minutes. Tickets can be purchased at the sales point of the Lokrum Reserve in Luža, at the entrance from the port. The boat does not operate in case of bad weather or during the winter.

Boat to Elaphite Islands
The boat to the Elaphite Islands (Koločep, Lopud, and Šipan) departs from Gruž Port. The timetable can be found in the Jadrolinija office that is located immediately near the departure pier in Gruž or in the information offices of the Dubrovnik Tourist Board. Tickets can also be purchased at Jadrolinija offices. (www.jadrolinija.hr)

Boat to Mljet Island

During the tourist season, one can reach the island of Mljet by taking the Nona Ana hydrofoil that sails to Sobra and Polače Port, which is near Mljet National Park. For more information please contact the agency G & V Line. (www.gv-line.hr)

The Jadrolinija agency maintains a ferry route from the port of Prapratno located on the Pelješac Peninsula that operates year round. (www.jadrolinija.hr)

Boat to Mljet, Korčula, Hvar, Brač and Split
Fast catamarans, the Krilo Star and Krilo Eclipse, run from Gruž three or four times a week from May to October – and daily in high season. Tickets can be purchased online (www.krilo.hr) or from agents in town. Jadrolinija also has a catamaran from Dubrovnik to Korčula, Hvar, Brač and Split that runs every day from mid June to end of September.

Boat transfer on the route Gruž - Lapad - Gruž
If you walked to Gruž or you have just arrived in Dubrovnik by boat and you want to go to Lapad but you are tired, you missed the bus, there is no taxi ... and for no particular reason at all, we suggest that you choose traditional local transport by boat. The Barka only operates in the summer, in the mornings (07:30 to 12:30), from Gruž - Lapad – Gruž, and at very reasonable prices. As soon as a small group of passengers is aboard, the ˝Barkarijol˝ (operator of the traditional boat Barka) switches on the motor and drives to the opposite side of the bay, without a set schedule, and approximately every ten minutes. In Gruž the boat docks directly in front of the open market, and on the Lapad side, it docks in front of Hotel Lapad. The boats features a sign that reads ˝Taxi˝, Gruž - Lapad - Gruž and the price.
