To reach Korcula town on the Korcula Island from Split you have two possibilities:
a) Take the ferry to Vela Luka (Korcula) at 10.15 or 17.30 and you arrive 2,5 hours later to the town Vela Luka. From there you have one more hour of drive to reach Lumbarda or Korcula town (45 km). The ferry drive takes about 2, hours and costs 10 € for the passengers and 90 € for the car.
b) If you arrive without the car, you can board the passengers-only Catamaran, that departs from Split and arrives either to Vela Luka or Korcula town directly. Catamaran departs from Split to Vela Luka at 15.00 and from Split to Korcula at 17.00. The drive takes around 2,5 hours and costs ca. 10 €. From Korcula town you need another 10 minutes to reach Lumbarda with local bus or taxi ( 6 km only).
As for the car ferry, it is recommendable to be there 1 hour before departure. Ferry departs 2 times each day, at 10.15 and at 17.30 in high season (1.6. - 30.9. each year).
If you arrive sooner, park your car in the line for the Ferry to Korcula (you are going to see signs guiding you to the right peer), and then leave the car there (you don't need to pay anything for the car there).
Buy a ticket to Korcula, and then take a stroll in the old town of Split (5 minutes on foot), and drink a coffee on a beautiful Split promenade by the sea with palms!
Half an hour before departure you will start to board the ferry. You park the car on the deck and go upstairs where the outdoor terrace or indoor cabin is. Inside is air-conditioned coffee bar, so you can enjoy the ride of 2,5 hours already on the ferry. There is plenty of space for the children to run around, play and relax.
You can also walk around the terraces and admire the Adriatic sea and start getting the brown color on the ferry already. If you are lucky, you might even see the dolphins.
You have access to your car the whole time so if you need anything from your car, you can go down and take it. It is a big ferry so you don't need to worry if there will be enough space for all cars, There is always enough space on this ferry from Split to Vela Luka.
When you arrive in Vela Luka, turn right from the port and follow the signs for Korcula. The rest is written in the guidelines, that we attach you with your travel Voucher.
NOTE: there is not possible to make a reservation for the ferry. You can only buy tickets on the day of your departure. The only ferry where reservations are possible is the long distance ferry from Rijeka to Dubrovnik, where you travel for several hours (from Rijeka to Dubrovnik 2 days and 1 night).
CAR on THE ISLAND: We do recommend to have a car on the island, since there is much to explore (several beautiful bays, hidden local restaurants, interesting towns, concerts), although you can visit all this also with a bus or excursion. You can rent a car once you arrive to the island Korcula or already at the Split airport.
