Itinerary assistance please 6 days

Need some feedback on the proposed itinerary below. We are flying in and out of Split but would like to see Plitvice and Dubrovnik if possible. Alternatively, we can use Split as our base and do side trips with the limited time. I have concerns that we are spending most of our time on a bus back and forth.

2-Jun Arrive at 1:30 pm - Hang in Split

3-Jun 8:00 am to 12:30 Bus: Dubrovnik

4-Jun Dubrovnik

5-Jun 8:00 am to 12:30 Bus: Split

6-Jun Split - Plitvice - See how we feel

7-Jun Travel Day Leave home

Really hate to say this but either skip Dubrovnik or Plitvice in your short period of time....if you skip Dubrovnik then use Split as a base to see Plitvice.

Skip Dubrovnik and get a catamaran/ferry to an island for a few days!

Appreciate the feedback from everyone, it's greatly appreciated. After deliberating I think I'll make my home base Split and save Dubrovnik for my next trip to Croatia. Does the below itinerary sound reasonable? Again, thanks so much!

2-Jun - Arrive at 1:30 pm - Hang in Split

3-Jun - Full day in Split

4-Jun - Car or one day tour of Plitvice. Sleep in Split.

5-Jun - Day trip to Brac/Bol ~ open to Island suggestions. Sleep in Split.

6-Jun - Day trip to Trogir. Sleep in Split.

7-Jun - Travel Day early flight.

Your itinerary is good, although I'd spend one night away from Split on an island. I'd do this: Day1) Arrive Split. Explore. Day2) Island. Stay o/n. Day3) Back to Split. Day4) Plitvice NP day trip Day5) Trogir day trip. Day6) Depart.

Again, thanks so much for your feedback. Last request, for now ;)

Any recommendation for a single night on one island: Hvar, Brac, Vis?

Hvar is the most popular, "posh" island. Vis is a bit further away, while Brac is closest to Split. I'd choose Brac for this reason. I cannot recommend for any other reason, as the only island I have been to is Mljet.

For one night I wouldn't go to Vis....if you want beach go to Bol on Brac and if you want nightlife then go to Hvar.
