Arriving by boat

Split's ferry port isn't a bad place to make the transition from nautical to more land-oriented modes of transportation and has a load of services on offer. If you happen to see policemen strolling around, don't be disturbed: those are just the customs officers that work at the office located in the port. The toilet near the back of the port operates around the clock. Changing currency:  There are at least four ATMs spaced out at regular intervals throughout the building. Split Tours operates an exchange office during their working hours. Calling home: There are two public phones inside the building. Calling cards can be purchased from the kiosks that line the street directly outside the station. Getting to town: Directly across the street is the Trajektna luka bus stop, with service to several points around town. Check the schedule posted inside the stop to find the information you need. Make a left out of the port and a short walk up the street takes you to the taxi stand; continue farther and you'll reach the old town in about five minutes.
Given its location in the middle of Dalmatia, Split serves as the main hub for reaching the mid-Dalmatian islands like Hvar, Brač, Šolta and Vis. 
For domestic travel, prices vary according to which island you wish to travel to. The basic price rundown is something like this: 33 - 68kn per person and 160 - 530kn for cars. Motorcycles will cost you 70 - 147kn and bicycles 38 - 62kn. Pets are allowed on board for no extra fee and we also strongly encourage pets to wear some type of cute little life vest.
The journey from Split to Šolta takes about half an hour and the trip to Vis takes about two and a half hours. On all ferries, you'll find bars where you can buy some snacks and a drink or two.
