Coming and Going
e – SplitCheck in starts at 11am and the trip departs at 1pm. Make your way to the harbour and look for the Katarina Lines boats - they will have staff waiting at the port for you. The boats are usually moored along the harbour side between the ferry terminal building and the town centre. You'll need your Busabout eticket as well as your passport to confirm your identity.

We've got a range of different cabins available on our Croatian sailing boats, depending on how much you want to spend. All cabins (rooms) are twin berths (2 beds per room), usually with bunk beds. You can choose whether to go for an Ensuite cabin, which will have your own bathroom, or Standard, which means you'll be sharing facilities with two or more other cabins. You can also choose between above deck cabins (bigger windows, more fresh air, less engine noise) and below deck cabins (small portholes, less noise from other passengers). Ensuite above deck berths are the most expensive and standard below deck are the cheapest so decide what suits you best and book yourself on!Please note that not all classes of cabins are on the same boat. Busabout cannot guarantee you will sail with your friends unless you book the same category cabins. If you are travelling in a group and have separate bookings or are booked on to different cabin classes please let us know who you wish to travel with so we can allocate cabins accordingly and confirm whether you will be able to be in the same boat.Pre/Post tour accommodation - Book through MyTrip
