Ferry from Zadar to Preko

If you wish to reach Preko (A city on one of the 5 most beautiful islands in Croatia) in Croatia from Zadar, there is a ferry from the Ferry terminal (Gaženica) and a passenger ferry from Old Town. You don't need to pre-book these tickets. However, in the peak season, this route can be busy! When you look at the picture above we don't need to explain why it can become busy!

I have to say here though for this ferry it's a bit odd that an online ticket doesn't guarantee a place on the ferry, you have to board early instead.


Online ticket is valid for any voyage on the selected date, but does not guarantee boarding at a specific departure time. Boarding is based on arrival order..

The price is really low, in our test bookings we saw $5 as the price! With a car it's more expensive, at this time however we were unable to find a car ticket in the booking engine.

Be careful on your return journey u003cstrongu003enot to catch the car ferry u003c/strongu003eif you arrive on the island by u003cstrongu003epassenger ferryu003c/strongu003e from Old Town.
