Sutivan and Split to be Connected by Catamaran in Peak Season

March 5, 2020 - Welcoming news out of Sutivan on Brac island today as a catamaran line will connect the island town and Split in just 20 minutes this season.

Many have forgotten, and most do not know, that Sutivan was once directly connected to Split by a boat line whose number and type have changed over the years. But after the construction of the new ferry port in Supetar, Sutivan, as well as other coastal towns of Brac, has no direct connection with Split, with the exception of MB Mali Jure, which for several years tried to maintain a connection but ultimately gave up. 

Thus, Dalmacija Danas reports that with the joint efforts of the Municipality of Sutivan, the Municipality of Milna and the company "Krilo Shipping Company", at its 54th session, the Coastal Shipping Agency, gave its consent for a daily commute between Milna - Sutivan - Split and vice versa every day from July 3, 2020, to August 30, 2020.

Passengers who board the catamaran in Sutivan will arrive in Split in 20 minutes, as will passengers from Split to Sutivan. It goes without saying that this will facilitate the lives of islanders or anyone looking to arrive and depart from Sutivan. Until now, passengers traveling without a car are connected via the slower and more expensive ferry service via Supetar.

So, how much will the catamaran line set you back? A one-way ticket will cost only 30,00 kn, for islanders 14,00 kn while for pensioners the ticket is completely free of charge.

This is huge news for the Municipality of Sutivan and news that we think will be welcome by most of us along the Dalmatian Coast. The first season will determine whether this line has the potential to extend the period of its operations in the future, the Municipality of Sutivan said. 

For now, we can all look forward to the return of this catamaran line, connecting Milna - Sutivan - Split from July 3, 2020, to August 30, 2020.

Krilo Luka Ticket Booth Moved in Korčula

In all our previous articles about how to get to and from Korčula, we mentioned how you can buy the tickets for the Krilo Luka catamarans in Korčula in a kiosk, located on the west Korčulan shore.


Not any more. There is no kiosk where the one used to be.


Now Krilo ticket booth has moved closer to the centre of the town, and is located in the building which is technically part of the ancient town walls (as you can see on the photo, the smallest tower of Korčula is right above it), right next to the open-air cinema. It's really not that difficult to find it, but here's a map to help you with the task:



The opening hours are quite interesting (although understandable, as they are closely linked to the times when you can actually board on of their catamarans):








One other thing you should keep in mind: currently they're not accepting credit and debit cards, so you will have to have cash to be able to buy tickets here.
