Transfer buses leave from right outside the terminal are coordinated to meet flight arrivals and drop off at the port, taking around 40 minutes. The cost of the transfer bus is HRK40 (€5). Taxis are also available outside the terminal building, expect to pay around HRK200. Departure transfers depart the port area 90 minutes before most flights.
Can I board the tour at a different port?If you arrive in Split after our lunchtime departure you can take a local bus to Makarska where you can board your boat on Saturday evening. If you are unable to get to Split for our Saturday departure then you can meet the group in Dubrovnik on Monday afternoon/evening. Note that this option is only possible if you have friends already on board with whom you can coordinate to meet the group with.
