yes you can – this is timetable and prices:November8, 2014 at 4:51 pm in reply to: In what part of Korcula Island do ferries from Split arrive? #22477
Ferries from Split arrive in Korcula Town, Prigradica as well as in Vela Luka – check all ferry info here:
ferry is still sailing on same schedule, just it is different company that is running it – jadrolinija.
page about bus from dubrovnik to korcula is here
the latest (current) timetable for bus from Orebic to Viganj is here:
Bus to Korcula gets to nearest point to Prapratno (about 15 minutes walk) approx one hour after its departure from Dubrovnik – so, at 4 pm daily as well as at 10 am when summer scheduled additional bus is in operation.
all ferries to mljet and from mljet are listed on this pageApril25, 2013 at 7:10 am in reply to: taking bicycles on ferries from Mljet to Korcula and Hvar #22403
not small ferries would take bicycles.
still, you can ask the crew they might change their mind (on the spot)
my suggestion is to use ferry to prapratno and then bus to korcula.
bus would take your bicycles on-board if packed flat.
for hvar it is difficult – it is very unlikely you will be allowed to take a bike on catamaran/ferry to hvar. still you can try and ask.
the alternative is to ride (or take bus) to vela luka and get ferries from there towards split and hvar.
all ferries to and from Mljet island are here:
check this option – direct transfer dubrovnik to korcula
it takes 40 minutes and cost is 35 kuna

Nancy, there are ferries in May but you can not book them online in advance
the easiest way to pag is to take buses along the coast.
they are frequent, comfortable and reliable.
ferries sail to split only and take long time (from morning to late afternoon)April25, 2013 at 6:53 am in reply to: Day trip from Hvar to Korcula and Mljet National Park #22404
Sue, i suggest you to use this ferry to come to korcula from hvar
Day trip from korcula to mljet is this one
an evening/night bus to korcula might be an option
also, you can always try to catch this ferry if you can
yes, it is possible to take a ferry from split to korcula in the car
from split to korcula town
from split to vela luka
also, you can drive to korcula via orebic at peljesac
shortening your drive by ferry from ploce to trpanj (if you wish)
ferries to pag island (novalja) are here:
Prices: 150 Kuna (20Euro) one way & 250 Kuna (34 Euro) return ticket.
You plan to use this ferry for your daytrip:
The timetable is right however, no advance booking is available.
You would need to buy your tickets on the day of the departure.
The boat departs from Gruz in Dubrovnik
from the ferry terminal
I'm afraid, it takes 3 hrs one way to reach the summit of Sveti Ilija. It is a whole day trip.
However, if your group is more interested in taking nice photos than to reach summit itself, you can do other routes – for example from Viganj to Orebic via Bilopolje – this route is much easier as it leads along the slopes west to east and offers great views over the channel and Korcula Town with lot of places you can take amazing panoramic photos from.
Have a look at this hiking map
(click on image so you get much larger map which you can print) to see the route and details.
The trails are fairly well marked so it is very unlikely you will get lost if you keep on the path, especially if you stay on the slopes only, not hiking to the summit.
Yes, walking along slopes of Sveti Ilija offer the best view points for Peljesac Channel archipelago.
Other good routes are along Defora bays (south side of the Island) with a views over to Lastovo and Mljet – see some info here:
In my opinion, Viganj to Orebic via Bilopolje is the best option – see photos and info about this route here:
the fastest way is to drive – takes about 4 hrs in total including ferry from Orebic to Korcula.
re public transport – you can take daily bus at midnight in Split, it arrives in Korcula Town at 6am.March23, 2013 at 9:47 am in reply to: Does anybody know bus timetable from Sobra to Pomena? #21624
every ferry that arrives or departs from Mljet is met by bus that takes you around the island.
as bus timetables are adjusted to ferry arrivals and departures you should be fine with arriving to your accommodation at the same afternoon.
