Split ferry port may sometimes look as the most chaotic place in Split if you don’t know how to find your way to your ferry destination.

If you are confused about the dozens of ferries sailing in and to different Central Dalmatian destinations, just follow my simple indications.

On the above map you can see three key points inside the Split passengers harbor with three piers according different destinations and types of  marine transportation, ferries for cars and passengers and catamarans only for passengers. Find here more about Split port history and development.

There is also forth pier called Lukobran,  used only by cruise ships. It was recently enlarged and deepened to be able to receive gigantic cruisers.

On the map you can easily find also Split Bus and Train stations, both are just close to each other.

If you are arriving from Split airport by regular bus transfer or by taxi than you will stop at Obala Lazareta where all on foot passengers can take one of fast catamaran to one of the islands. See new 2015 catamaran schedule from Split port.

Split Ferry Port Docks

Car ferries sail from other two port pier, as shown on the photo. Usually all international ferries from/to Italy depart from Gat Sv.Duje (Gat means dock or pier) international pier while the majority of local island car ferries leave from local ferry pier Gat Sv.Petra.

Ferries to/from Split

It is important to note that local ferries to/from Split may not be reserved online.

If you need to book international ferry from Italy on Ancona – Split – Ancona route you can do it from here. You can book online also the route Ancona – Stari Grad (Hvar island) – Split – Ancona for travelers planning to reach Hvar island directly. (This route is only available July – August)

The special warning concerns all passengers traveling by car.

In the lower season (May-June and September- October) usually is not problem finding the place, but in high season (July and August) you should book a ferry for the car at least one day in advance and for boarding you have to show up several hours before departure as passengers can always get on board but space for cars can fill up.

From Split Airport to Split Port

The cheapest and easiest way to go from Split Airport to Split Port is to take an airport bus which leaves you off at Obala Lazareta, just a short walk from the ferry port.

In case you are getting to the port by your own or hired car, find out where to find parking place near the port. Split city suffers from a shortage of parking places.
