Dubrovnik to Split and Islands in late Oct. early Nov??

I see the ferry schedule seems to only go once a day to the Islands- does that mean you have to spend the night if you want to go? What about any private boats or water taxis- not so much for a big cruise but just to get to the islands and back same day?

Will anything be open on the Islands?

We are most interested in:

Split

Trogir

Vis

Maybe hvar

Mijet

Dubrovnik

Maybe korcula

Love any pointers or reccomendations...

The islands will be pretty dead by late October. I would leave Mljet and Vis for the bathing season. You could visit Hvar Town and Korcula Town as way of getting between Split and Dubrovnik by public transport. Accommodation should be cheap, some restaurants will be open and you can admire the beautiful setting and architecture. Using water taxis would be a lot more expensive than staying on the islands. Even on the winter timetables you could visit Hvar or Brac on a day visit from Split.

Have a look if G Adventures are still running their 7 day Yacht cruises between Split and Dubrovnik at that time - or else one of the charter companies might be really excited to get your business and offer a good price to see the islands - without accommodation problems :-)

From September 30th in Croatia run winter boat schedule so it is harder to do what you are planning. Also, just a few cruise boat will sail in that time...

I agree with apt 22, islands, specially Mljet are already hibernating at that time, so you should not expect too much. From Split it is easy to reach islands Brac and Hvar as day trips. If you would like to go to Vis, I recommend to spend one night there, as it will be to intense to go there and back to Split in the same day.

To check public transport by sea, beside Jadrolinija web site, check also web site Krilo dot hr - they run high speed ship service from Split to Vis and Hvar.
