Croatia - Hvar or Korcula or both?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be there for 8 days/nights in July. We start with 4 in Dubrovnik (day trips to Mostar and probably Montenegro too). End in Split where we fly out. I've narrowed it down to two options.

Option 1 - ferry Dubrovnik to Korcula Sunday the 18th (10am-13:00). Then catamaran Korcula to Hvar on Monday (6am-7:40), then catamaran Hvar to Split (7:40-8:30) on Tuesday.

Option 2 - ferry on Sunday from Dubrovnik to either Korcula or Hvar and stay two nights, catamaran to Split Tuesday.

There may be more ferry/catamaran options but those were the ones I could find now. Given the times it does work out that we can spend one night on each island. But it also means getting up early two days in a row.

So my questions - how far in advance do you have to get to the dock for those trips? It looks like the trips in Hvar are from Hvar town but I saw something about Stari Grad. That would make it really hard to take an early morning boat to Split (which would mean staying on Hvar at all would not make sense. Seems like that can't be the only option for getting from the island of Hvar to Split. From your experience, does this look like a workable plan if we don't mind getting up in time for those boats?

If we decide to only do one island which one? We are really not into either beach or night life (we sound boring). We are into photography, ambiance, exploring medieval towns, short hikes (usually to get a good view). Thanks
