Visitor Information -- The Vis Town tourist office (www.tz-vis.hr; tel. 021/717-017) is at Šetalište Stare Isse 5, across the street from the ferry port and adjacent to the Jadrolinija (www.jadrolinija.hr;tel. 021/711-032) ticket office. The Komiža tourist office (www.tz-komiza.hr; tel. 021/713-455) is at Riva sv Mikula 2.
Getting There -- Jadrolinija operate car ferries from Split three times daily in peak season, and twice daily in winter (journey time is 2 hrs. 20 minutes).
Getting Around -- Vis Town is the island’s main port, and from here buses to Komiža are scheduled to coincide with ferries. However, if you want to see the inland villages and enjoy the more secluded beaches, you’ll need your own transport. There are several sites worth investigating in the rural areas between Vis Town and Komiža, including wineries, caves, and abandoned military installations.
Leave your car on the mainland and rent a scooter or bicycle on the dock in Vis from the Ionios Tourist Agency (Obala Sv. Jurja 37; tel. 021/711-532). It’s more environmentally responsible, better for getting exercise, and cheaper by the day than the fee for transporting your auto on the ferry. Expect to pay about 200kn daily for a scooter and 90kn daily for a bicycle.
