Istanbul to Croatia

We are trying to decide if it would be feasible to go to Dubrovnik or Split from Istanbul without driving. The flights I've researched so far take a ridiculously long amount of time because of their connections and are expensive. I haven't been able to find ferry or rail routes. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Dubrovnik is not served by train and trains from Split to Istanbul are nowhere near convenient. There are no ferries. Flying is your best bet, so continue the search at www.skyscanner.com.

Thank you. That fits with what I have been finding but I kept thinking I was missing something.
