travel from Mali Losinj to Hvar/Split?

We are planning to take a ferry from Venice to Mali Losinj in Sept of 2015 but I am having a hard time finding any way of getting from Losinj to Hvar or Split! We would like to travel by water, either ferry, catamaran or even a small boat charter but can't find anything that travels south of Mali Losinj...only North

Does anyone know of anything?? Thanks so much!.

Check next summer to see if new routes are added, but as of this year, the options are to take a bus or catamaran to Rijeka, and transfer to a different form of transport once there (either coastal ferry or bus). The distance from Losinj to your destination is rather far, so there is no direct route to those southern places. (A previous route to Zadar has been discontinued.)

The bus ride is quite scenic as it crosses Cres as well as on the mainland (the bus takes a short ferry ride)--and it had the nice feature of not leaving at the crack of dawn like the catamaran.

Thanks so much for your help! We will plan on the bus ride and hope a new ferry magically appears before then!

There's a ferry on Mondays and Fridays from Mali Losinj to Zadar, but you'd have to spend the night in Zadar or get an overnight bus.

Its Mali Losinj to Rijeka by bus, then Rijeka down to Split, then catamaran or ferry to Hvar.!

Hi,

We are looking to do something similar to yourselves, but I was under the impression that the ferry from Venice only operated in July and August. Might be best to re-check.

The ferry from Venice operates by mid-September or so, but to Losinj only in July and August.

As for the Mali Losinj to Split leg, the twice-weekly ferry from Mali Losinj to Zadar would be just swell, but it arrives to Zadar after 10 p.m., which means that you would either have to overnight in Zadar or take the midnight bus to Split, arriving at dawn. The other option is indeed to go to Rijeka and take a bus to Split.
