    I am planning a two-centre holiday, in Kolocep and Bol, in June.  Would it be possible to travel by ferry, for example from Kolocep to Dubrovnik, to Hvar or Korcula, to Bol?  If I can’t do it all in one day, due to ferry times for example, would it be best to stay overnight in Hvar or Korcula?  I would prefer not to take the bus option from Dubrovnik to Split, then ferry to Bol.  Any suggestions/recommendations would be most appreciated.  Thank you very much in advance.

    I am planning a two centre holiday, in Kolocep and Bol, in June 2012.  Would it be possible to travel by ferry, for example from Kolocep to Dubrovnik, to Hvar or Korkula, to Bol?  If I can’t do it all in one day, due to ferry times for example, would it be best to stay overnight in Hvar or Korkula?  I would prefer not to take the bus option from Dubrovnik to Split, then ferry to Bol.

    In June, ferries from Dubrovnik towards north sails on Thursdays and Sundays only.

    Ferries timetable from Dubrovnik to Mljet-Korcula-Hvar-Split is here:

    Unfortunately, there is no other ferry in June that sails from Dubrovnik in this direction 

    If you can fit your sailing on these two days, you could then get fast ferry that sails from Jelsa (Hvar island) to Bol – see timetable on this link.

    Also, check my post about travelling from Dubrovnik to Hvar where I addresses some issues:

    I hope this helps

    Thank you so much for all the information, much appreciated.  I am currently planning a two week holiday starting and ending on Sat.  Looking at the ferry times it would mean departing Dubrovnik on Sun 8.30am and arriving in Hvar at 4.40pm, staying that night in Hvar, then on Mon taking the 6am ferry to arrive in Bol at 6.25am; or arrive in Split at 6.40pm, staying that night in Split, then on Mon taking the 4pm Catamaran to Bol. 
    The PROBLEM is that on Sun the first ferry from Kolocep is 8.15am arriving in Dubrovnik at 8.50am, so too late for the ferry to Hvar/Split…It would mean that I spend 7 nights in Kolocep, 1 night in Dubrovnik, 1 night in Hvar or Split, and 5 nights in Bol… 
    Perhaps it is best to take the 6.45 ferry from Kolocep to Dubrovnik on Sat, then take a but to Split, hopefully arriving in time for the 4pm ferry to Bol.  How easy is it to buy a ticket and get a seat on the bus?  Are there stops on the way, to use the bathroom, for example?
    I also saw that there is a ferry from Makarska to Sunartin at 12:30 and 5pm.  I don’t know how far/easy it is from Sunartin to Bol, but would this be a better option than going all the way to Split?  I wonder if it would be possible to hire a car to Dubrovnik to Bol (one way), so that I could drive from Sunartin to Bol…?

    It is easy to buy a ticket to Split – there are at least 15 buses a day that go there, you should be fine.
    Yes, there are stops along the way – bus driver takes regular breaks for people to use bathroom, get refreshments etc..

    I also saw that there is a ferry from Makarska to Sumartin at 12:30 and 5pm.  I don’t know how far/easy it is from Sumartin to Bol, but would this be a better option than going all the way to Split?

    Well, you can always consider to take ferry from Makarska to Brac. Makarska is only 1 hour away from Split which is not huge difference.

    Re car hire – I am not sure which company offers drop off in Brac – you can check various links here :

    Buses are very comfortable, air-conditioned and reliable,  I would suggest you to take bus and spend the time while travelling to look out through the window – landscape is really nice as bus is running along the coast
