Arrival from Split airport to Stari Grad (Hvar)
Leaving the airport you can find big white shuttle busses in front of the airport. In the front window of the busses you can find the destination sign of the bus like in all busses. The busses with the destination “ferry port” are shuttle busses which drive directly to the ferry port bus station without stopping. The shuttle bus price is about 30 kuna/person.
From the bus station go to the ferry ticket shop of the ferry company “Jadrolinija”. Standing in front of the bus station and looking to the sea you can find a Jadrolinija shop to the left side behind the building. The ferry ticket costs about 50 kuna/person additional costs for a car about 300 kuna (car height max. 2 meters).
Be sure to buy a ticket from Split to destination Stari Grad (on Hvar island), NOT to destination Hvar (town).
There is a faster “Splitexpress” “ferry speed boat” (a catamaran only for people not for cars) which brings you as well to the ferry port Stari Grad. But the catamaran starts from the Split airport (and from Brac) to Stari Grad. It´s not clear when/ if the Splitexpress company works.
