Foot passengers:

If you are a foot passenger and are traveling in July and August, your best option is to take the fast 9807 ferry line on Mondays and Fridays, departing from Mljet (Sobra and Polace ports) at 09:05 (09:50), arriving in Lastovo (Ubli) at five minutes before noon.

The alternative is to take the fast ferry from Sobra to Dubrovnik (line 9807) departing at 06:15, and from there get on catamaran ferry line 9808 at 13:00 (or 14:30) and arriving in Lastovo (Ubli port) at 16:30 (or 18:05), depending on the season. Both ferry lines run all year round. Ticket booking is here.

Another option, for April to October, is to take the fast ferry from Pomena to Korcula (2-3 times a day) and from there get on catamaran ferry line 9808 at 13:00 (or 14:30) and arrive in Lastovo (Ubli port) at 16:30 (or 18:05), depending on the season. For the first part of the journey, the ticket booking is here, for the second part book your ticket on the previous links (as it is the same ferry line).

The fourth option is to use the bus, passenger & car ferry routes, Mljet (Sobra) via Prapratno, Orebic, Korcula, and Vela Luka – see details below.

If you prefer to travel by bus, you can get a bus from Prapratno to Vela Luka (ticket booking at arriva.com.hr) and get on the ferry to the island from there. This option will involve overnight in Vela Luka as by the time the bus arrives there, the ferry has already left.

The total journey time is a minimum of 5 hours as it involves three ferry crossings. You can book all three ferry tickets at Jadrolinija’s website.

Mljet to Lastovo Map:

On the above map, you can see three travel routes: one that goes directly from Mljet by fast catamaran ferry to Lastovo, another one that involves changing ferry in Korcula, and a third one that involves car ferry crossing to Prapratno, driving via Peljesac and Korcula island with crossings from Orebic and Vela Luka.

Private transfers:

You can consider taking a taxi from Prapratno to Vela Luka to join the ferry to Lastovo. Private boat transfers are also an option – taking water taxis in Mljet for fast crossings to Lastovo. The crossing lasts for about 2 or more hours, depending on the route. For this option it is important to check the weather forecast – in case of bad weather water taxis do not sail. Public transport (ferry, catamaran, bus, or car ferry) is the most reliable transport option.
