1) Novigrad Venice ferry.

 

Since there is no direct connection by boat from Novigrad to Venice, we begin with a free shuttle bus to Porec or to Umag. The road distance is 15 km, so that the bus ride takes about 20 minutes. Transfer starting points are: hotel Maestral, transfers from Mareda and Dajla can also be arranged. The trip from Umag has the advantage of being closer to Venice than Porec is, and ships go on more days each week, although the boat ride takes a little longer.

Prices for adults: 520 HRK.

It is also possible to book this trip one way. More info about Venice and excursions.

Influence of the weather on the boat trips,

 

The most sensitive are boat trips type fish picnic. In the case of the strong wind of the south (Jugo) and especially, the southwest (Garbin) is not recommended going on this trip. In Novigrad, the harbor is not very sheltered, so large waves can be seen even before the departure. Interestingly, any Northeast wind, even strong (and despite the name: Bura) makes here a quiet sea and favorable conditions for navigation.
