We will be arriving at Dubrovnik Airport at 8:00 a.m. on June 2nd. We are looking for the fastest way to get to Korcula, hopefully by Noon or a little after. We want to get about 1/2 a day in that first day. I see that ferries from Dubrovnik to Korcula run in the late afternoon. I have found buses on Korkyra website that can get you to Orebic from the airport in a couple of hours, and then take a 15 minute ferry ride from Orebic to Korcula. They send boats about every hour or hour and a half to Korcula. Has anyone every used Korkya or the Orebic ferry? Is there an easier way that is also quick?
We took the reverse route, took the bus from Korcula to Dubrovnik, in that case the bus took the ferry with us in it.
In addition to the ferry though, I believe there is the equivalent of water taxis that will take you across the narrow strait.
Fastest is probably the Korkyra shuttle. Never used it, but I've seen it mentioned on travel forums forever, I'd say it's a safe bet. Catamarans: These are seasonal and we don't have your date, so check timetables carefully. You first transit from airport to bus station (by bus or taxi), then walk to ferry port (bus station next to ferry port).
You can also take the bus, which takes a ferry at Orebic. https://kolodvor.hr/domestic-timetable/ I've done this twice, and it was a pleasant ride, pretty scenery.
For April and May, the first Orebic to Korcula ferry you will have a chance of catching departs Orebic at 11:00. the next one departs at 1 pm. The Dubrovnik to Korcula ferry departs at 1 pm and reaches Korcula a little after 3pm.
Have you asked your lodging host for a suggestion/recommendation?
We’ve gone from Orebič with Korkya.very reliable and probably your best bet.
