The ultimate way to arrive on Hvar is by private yacht, and mega-yachts such as Roman Abramovich's former 86m Ecstasea and Jimmy Lee's futuristic Wallypower were just two of the boats on show in 2011, with an even more impressive apparition in 2012, although apparently the biggest ever boat to date turned up in 2004.
However, this option is not available to most.
There are, luckily, much more affordable private transfers available, which take away the need to find the ferry and plan according to the Jadrolinija schedule:
- private speedboat collection from and to Split, Dubrovnik or other destinations in Croatia
- yacht charter is also a very popular option (not only) for groups
PLEASE NOTE: the helicopter and Hvar Sea Shuttle services has been discontinued for now.
