Prapratno on Pelješac peninsula to Island Mljet car ferry | 2024 timetable

During summer visitors staying in Dubrovnik mostly use the fast catamaran line to visit Mljet Island. However, during winter the timetable for the fast catamaran line is not suited to return to Dubrovnik on the same day.

Regardless of the season, if you have your own car or decided to rent a car, there is a great way to visit Island Mljet and the famous Mljet National Park in one day, as a bonus you will also have the opportunity to explore Pelješac peninsula, the district famous for it's red wine production.

This ferry line is the shortest and fastest ferry connection from the mainland to Mljet Island. The trip duration from Prapratno to Sobra on Mljet island is 45 minutes.

Where do I buy ferry tickets for the car ferry from Prapratno to Island Mljet ?

Ferry tickets can be bought at the kiosk in Prapratno harbour, usually one hour before departure. During summer we recommend that you arrive some time before and put your car in line to ensure a place on the ferry. Tickets can also be bought at the main Jadrolinija office in Dubrovnik. The distance from Dubrovnik to Prapratno is 60 km, approximately a one hour drive. Consider that during summer there could be heavier traffic on the road so plan your trip and leave Dubrovnik a little earlier.

How to drive from Sobra to the National Park on Mljet Island

Upon arrival in Sobra on Mljet Island just follow the signs for the Mljet National Park, distance is 25 km. The roads are narrow so keep your speed limited, you can park at the entrance to the national park and explore it by foot.
