If you want to visit Jelsa on Hvar Island, it's possible to take the public ferry, but you'll be spending most of your day traveling. In fact, it takes longer than flying from London to Split. Instead, enjoy a fast and stress-free journey from Split Airport to Jelsa on Hvar Island via a professional boat transfer service.

With our boat transfer service, you don't have to wait around for the next ferry. For example, if you land at Split Airport at 10 a.m., the first ferry available to catch won't run for another 4.5 hours, departing at 2:30 p.m. from Split's harbor. You'll also have to take a taxi from the airport to the port which can take as long as an hour due to heavy summer traffic.

Even better, our services from Split Airport to Jelsa are available 24 hours a day. That makes it easy to take advantage of if you arrive at night when there's no ferry transport available at all. Upon your arrival, we'll be waiting to welcome you to Split. From there, you'll be guided to the port, about a five- to eight-minute walk.

Smooth and easy, after hopping on board, we'll depart for the approximately 80-minute ride where you'll be surrounded by the sparkling blue waters of the Adriatic. Watch for the famous Pakleni archipelago with its gem-like forested islands, secluded lagoons, and deserted beaches. You'll disembark at Hvar town and your skipper will bring you right to your hotel.

Having arrived in comfort and style without having to wait for hours and endure a crowded ferry, you'll feel refreshed and ready to enjoy your time on sunny Hvar, including its world-class dining and nightlife scene.
