Croatia Ferry Guide 2022: From Zadar to Dugi Otok, Ugljan, Iž, and More

July 2, 2022 - We're going to take a look at the destinations you can visit by ferry from the main Croatian ports. In this fifth installment of our Croatia Ferry Guide 2022, where to go from the port of Zadar?

When advertising the Adriatic Sea and the Croatian islands abroad, the experience of being on board a sailboat, yacht, or catamaran is usually highlighted. However, there is no destination a Croatian ferry can't reach, and why not mention that it's totally worth saving a good amount of euros on sailboat rentals and crews?

Today we tell you more about the island destinations you can reach from the ferry port of Zadar.

First of all, how to buy your ferry tickets? There are three ways. The first is via the official Jadrolinija website. In it, you can not only see the updated sailing schedules, but you can also buy your tickets online. Simply choose the port of departure, the port of destination, and the date of your trip, and you will find the available times. Once you have chosen the time and the number of tickets, in addition to completing all your personal information, you can proceed to pay for your tickets online with a credit or debit card.

The second way is through the official Jadrolinija mobile app, available on the Apple App Store and Google Playstore for Android. The application is very easy to use and, just like on the website, just select the port of departure and you will be able to see the ports that you can travel to from the one you selected. The process is very similar, and you will find that it is even more comfortable and intuitive to use. Payment also allows the use of credit and debit cards.

Finally, the third type of payment is the most traditional and has its benefits. All ferry ports in Croatia have a Jadrolinija office, where you can go to buy your tickets in person. Sometimes one can be a bit confused before buying their tickets both on the website and in the app, so having a Jadrolinija agent to guide you is a great help.

Where is the Zadar ferry port located? Most of the ferries departing from Zadar depart from the east coast of Zadar's Old Town. You can find it on the map below.

Croatia Ferry Guide 2022: From Rijeka to Cres, Mali Lošinj, and More

June 21, 2022 - In the newest TCN series, we take a look at the destinations you can visit by ferry from the main Croatian ports. In this second installment of the Croatia Ferry Guide 2022, where to go from the port of Rijeka?

When advertising the Adriatic Sea and the Croatian islands abroad, the experience of being on board a sailboat, yacht, or catamaran is usually highlighted. However, there is no destination a Croatian ferry can't reach, and why not mention that it's totally worth saving a good amount of Euros on sailboat rentals and crews?

Today we tell you more about the island destinations you can reach from the ferry port of Rijeka. Did you know that the Jadrolinija company was founded in Rijeka in 1947?

First of all, how to buy your ferry tickets? There are three ways. The first is via the official Jadrolinija website. In it, you can not only see the updated sailing schedules, but you can also buy your tickets online. Simply choose the port of departure, the port of destination and the date of your trip, and you will find the available times. Once you have chosen the time and the number of tickets, in addition to completing all your personal information, you can proceed to pay for your tickets online with a credit or debit card.

The second way is through the official Jadrolinija mobile app, available on the Apple App Store and Google Playstore for Android. The application is very easy to use and, just like on the website, just select the port of departure and you will be able to see the ports that you can travel to from the one you selected. The process is very similar, and you will find that it is even more comfortable and intuitive to use. Payment also allows the use of credit and debit cards.

Finally, the third type of payment is the most traditional and has its benefits. All ferry ports in Croatia have a Jadrolinija office, where you can go to buy your tickets in person. Sometimes one can be a bit confused before buying their tickets both on the website and in the app, so having a Jadrolinija agent to guide you is a great help.

Where is the Rijeka ferry port located? The good news is that if you're in the city center, it won't be too far to find it. Also, if you arrive in Rijeka by ferry, you will already be well placed to get to know the city right away. If you happen to be along Rijeka's promenade, you will notice that a large pier stretches out in front of you: the famous Molo Longo. At the beginning of Molo Longo, between restaurants and offices, is the Jadrolinija agency. It's a good place to start as, as well as being able to buy your ferry tickets at that same office, you'll notice that the ferries depart right in front of the office. Take a look at the map below to see where the Rijeka ferry port is located.

Cres

There is a daily line of catamarans that depart from Rijeka and go to the town of Cres, the main one on the island that bears the same name. Every day a catamaran belonging to the (9308) M.LOŠINJ-UNIJE-CRES-RIJEKA line leaves at 17:00 pm from the port of Rijeka and arrives in Cres at 18:20 pm. The price for adult tickets (12 years and older) is 53 kuna, while for children between 3 and 12 years old they cost 25 kuna.

Ilovik

To get to Ilovik, the small island south of Lošinj, one can board the same catamaran line (9308) M.LOŠINJ-UNIJE-CRES-RIJEKA. However, if you are going to Ilovik, you must remember that this line goes there every day except Tuesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Departs at 17:00 pm from the port of Rijeka and staggers its arrival times in Ilovik depending on the day.
