Taxi and shuttle transfer – ferry port Dubrovnik

As far as towns go, Dubrovnik is one of the nicest to live in and visit. It is a trademark for Croatian tourism, and there is hardly a tourist who has not, at some point, visited Dubrovnik. Located in the far south of Croatian coast, it is cut off from the mainland by a narrow strip of land belonging to Bosnia and Herzegovina. This makes it difficult (to say the least) to access by land, leaving sea and air as the most viable options.

Ferry port is fairly small, located just west of the city centre, in the district of Gruž. Even though it is rather small, especially in comparison with some other Croatian ports, it has a significant turnaround. Nearly 2 million passengers arrive to Dubrovnik by sea, not counting the many Cruisers who dock in the port every day during the summer.

Vast majority of passengers arriving in Dubrovnik start in one of Croatian ports, Split, Rijeka or Zadar; or arrive from Italian ports which have direct lines to Dubrovnik. Ferries to Mljet, Brač, Korčula and other islands are under the jurisdiction of national sea company, Jadrolinija.

Traveling by sea has its merits, especially regarding comfort and the experience itself. There is no stress, traffic jams or any other mishaps so often seen on the roads. However, it takes longer and is in most cases costlier, especially if taking a car aboard. Nevertheless, it is one of the most enjoyable ways to travel, and in case of Dubrovnik, probably the easiest way to reach the destination.
