    Please help me as soon as possible!

    I need to find a ferry from Mali Losinj to Zadar on September 28 or 29th, 2007. I think there is a new ferry conncecting the two towns, but I do not know for sure and do not know how to make a reservation. Please advise.
    Are there other routes from the island of Cres
    to Zadar or Split?
    I leave for Croatia on September 19th so my time is short.

    Thank you very much!

  • Beverley on August 26th, 2009 10:21 am

    I need to know if there is a ferry operating from Zadar (where we will spend one night having travelled up by bus from Split) to Rab island? We have 4 days to explore Rab & Krk islands before heading back to Zagreb (6 October 2009) from where we will fly home.
    Dates will be 2 – 5 Oct 2009.
    What does this cost?
    What time does the ferry leave from Zadar?

    Please help me with the above with your latest information.
    Kind regards
