Unfortunately no. Jadrolinija doesn't allow bicycles on catamarans. Some claims that unofficially was allowed but it is of course very unsure option.

You can go with a cycle on the car ferry from Split to Vela Luka on Korcula island and there ask if you can put the bike in the luggage compartment of the bus. It is usually allowed.

You need bus from Vela Luka to Korcula town.

Just take the ferry to Korcula, solves the problem!

Or rent a cycle there, they are cheap!

Officially Jadrolinija does not take bikes on hydrofoils/catamarans even with wheels off zipped and bagged.No problems on car ferry.With wheels off no bike surcharge but that is better to confirm with deck hands before ticket purchase.

Regarding the bus,that was not driver's pocket money.Surcharge applies for luggage and ( space available depending) bikes with wheels off (no bag needed) are considered luggage.

Get the car ferry. It's much more pleasant trip anyway. Only problem is that they only operate from Split in the afternoon. You'll have to pay to take the bike on board. croatiaferries.com/split-korcula-ferry.htm

Car ferry Split - Vela Luka operates two times daily (on sundays out of summer season once daily). The first departs at 10:30

This croatiaferies site seems not have too much with the reality. Be careful, always check on the ferries company site, www.jadrolinija.hr in this case.

According to the Jadrolinija site, the Split-Vela Luka route is a catamaran, but on CroatiaFerries it says car ferry.

It's both. The catamaran is at 2pm in the winter, 3pm in the summer.

If the boat is run by Jadrolinija use their website to check it out. Route 604 is a car ferry, route 9604 is a catamaran. It is over 40km from Vela Luka to Korcula Town which is quite a good ride - but be aware that vehicles aren't necessarily expecting bicycles.
