Ferry Korcula to Dubrovnik

I am having problems reading the ferry timetables. Everytime I select my dates, in delivers results with the date reversed - so I'm actually not entirely sure which date is accurate. Does anyone know the timetable for the Korcula to Dubrovnik ferry. Looking to travel Thu 10 Sep 09.

Not sure what you mean about the date being reversed. Are you having trouble with the European sequence (day/month/year) as opposed to the US sequence (month/day/year)?

When I put in a query on the Jadrolinija site I see a ferry Korcula-Dubrovnik on the 9th of Sept and one on the 12th of Sept, but none on the 10th.

There's an early morning bus every day (and an extra on Sunday) from Korcula to Dubrovnik that takes about 3 hours. It stops in Orebic on the way. You might consider doing that, rather than the direct ferry.

Here's the timetable...

But it looks like there isn't a ferry on Thursdays.

However there is a catamaran service on a Thursday leaving at
16.00...

Look carefully at the dates on the catamaran schedule. It only stops in Korcula in July and August, not September. So, if the schedule is up-to-date, that is not an option for JT.

I found, as I planned a Croatia itinerary for September, that I had to take ferry schedules into account. You can't just assume you can get from here to there on any given day.

Thanks so much everyone! It looks like the bus is the best option for me. Mimar: yes, I had just assumed ferry's everyday.
