Jadrolinija is a Croatian ferry company that connects most of the Croatian islands to the mainland by regular passenger and car ferry services along the Croatian coast. The company also runs several international routes between Croatia and Italy (Ancona and Bari).  It is a state-owned company and therefore subsidised by the state budget.

Historically, Jadrolinija was founded in Rijeka, Croatia in January 1947 from a fleet of several smaller Croatian companies that were operating in Adriatic since the 19th century. It was initially named as  ‘Jadranska linijska plovidba’ which was later changed to shorter one –  ‘Jadrolinija‘.

Currently, the company has a fleet of 57 vessels including large ferries serving three international car ferry routes across the Adriatic Sea between Croatia and Italy:

It also has 45 smaller ferries, conventional ships, catamarans and hydrofoils serving local routes along the Croatian coast. The popular coastal ferry route from Rijeka to Dubrovnik (via Split, Stari Grad-Hvar, Korcula and Sobra – Mljet) is currently discontinued.

Jadrolinija’s ferries are safe and comfortable, most of them with air-conditioned restaurants, cafes and cabins offering relaxing and enjoyable journeys. Restaurants and cafés on ferries serve a choice of nice hot and cold food as well as a selection of spirits, wines, soft drinks as well as tea and coffee.
