Need to get to Hvar from Dubrovnik in August 2013

Can anybody advise best way to do this? Maybe its a bit early yet, but I cant get any information on either buses or ferrys as yet for August. We wont have a car and are family of 4 with 2 teenagers. We have a week booked in Cavtat and a week in Hvar which is great but we all need to get between the 2 places to coincide with hotel/flight bookings which have been confirmed! Any help much appreciated.

The easiest way is to take a bus to Split and then ferry/catamaran to Hvar.

Thank you, Thats the route Im trying to look into? Cant get any info up yet on buses or ferrys! What I need to know is do the buses run daily to and from Split/Dubrovnik and are the ferrys to/from split/Hvar daily too? Have you taken this route? Any advice is welcome.

Catamaran goes from Split to Hvar town twice a day (3 and 5 pm). Ferry goes to Stari grad on island Hvar I think 4-5 times a day.

For the buses you can take a look here www.autobusi.hr/bus-station/?/dubrovnik/105 but they also go several times a day.

Yes there are many buses between Dubrovnik and Split daily and many ferries or cats out to Hvar too. It won't be a problem plus you will have absolutely magnificent views from the bus from Dubrovnik to Split!

Lots of buses - in March there are 14 a day from Split to Dubrovnik so there will be more in season. split bus station website is good and you can set it for buses to Split or from Split (just doesn't include your dates yet). www.ak-split.hr/EN/vozni.red/index.html

You will need to get from Cavtat to Dubrovnik bus station first. For the bus ride sit on the left side of the bus for best views.

Are you staying in Hvar Town (cat is best from Split)or elsewhere (ferry may be best)?

There will also be a new shuttle service available which is more expensive but much nicer than regular bus: croatia-split.com/blog/what-s-happening/new-…

I like the idea of a stop at Ston, but the price is three times that of the regular buses.
