Water taxi between Bol and Jelsa (and itinerary feedback!)

I'm trying to find out how much it costs to get a water taxi (or another non Jadrolinija service) from Bol to Jelsa. I saw some other people recommend it in other threads, but noone's mentioned the price.

I've written to nautic-center-bol.com to ask the question, just awaiting a response... maybe someone out there knows some other companies too?

My current itinerary sees me arriving in Bol on Weds night (although I might try to arrive earlier to the island by going to Supetar instead), then Thursday in Bol, Friday in Bol, Friday afternoon taking the ferry to Jelsa then bus to Hvar town. From what I've read, Hvar has a bit more to offer so this is why I'm trying to get a taxi on Friday morning instead of waiting until the afternoon. Otherwise i'll try to leave Bol on Thursday night, but getting an extra night accommodation in the same hostel is tricky as it's very busy...

Then I'll have Saturday in Hvar, and half of Sunday in Hvar.

Would like to stay longer in Hvar but the latest catamaran I can get back to Split is 13:45. If anyone else knows another way to leave Hvar much later in the day, even if it means taking extra time, I would be interested to know!

What do you guys think about the idea of less time in Bol, more time in Hvar?

Thanks a lot for any feedback!

If you want to spend longer on Hvar you could get an evening ferry from Stari Grad to Split.

Thanks for the quick feedback :)

But looking at the jadrolinija website for travel dates between 01.06.- 30.09.2011, I can only seem to find a ferry that goes from Split to Stari Grad on Sunday, not the other way.

It seems I can only go Stari Grad to Split between 01.01.2011 – 31.05.2011 & 01.10.2011- 31.12.2011.

Appreciate if you can enlighten me if I've got it wrong :)

Yes - see this: www.jadrolinija.hr/pdfs/635.2011.ljeto.e.pdf

There are evening ferries everyday @ 20.00 and one @ 23.00 which runs up to 4th September.

There are also very likley to be day trips from Bol to Hvar Town which you could negotiate as a one-way trip - this is commonly done for Jelsa to Bol for example so people don't have to get the very early catamaran.

Ahhh thanks so much! I've looked at this same page 20 times now thinking that I must be wrong, glad to have it clarified!

If I manage to negotiate an earlier trip from Jelsa to Bol, i'll post back and let everyone know...

Hi,

I was looking at doing the same journey from Bol to Jesla, so if you find out the price, I would also be very interested!

Thanks :)
