Jadrolinija Ferry

Pets are allowed on the ferries. You only need to stay with them outside on the deck and they should have a leash. However, there is a problem with the fast ferries as most do not have an outside area. You can take your pets but they need to stay in a box. This is why we recommend you to contact our VIP concierge department and they will arrange a private pet-friendly boat transfer for you and your furry friend.

The first villa we recommend on the islands is the villa Veni on Korcula island. This is a ground-floor villa perfect for pets and people with small children. It is situated in a small bay, near the sea, and with a private mooring.
