Map of all Jadrolinija ferry and catamaran lines in Split area are available here.  

The trip by the airport bus from the Split airport to the harbour takes about 30-45 min. The tickets for catamarans can be bought in the kiosk "Jadrolinija" few meters away from the final bus-stop (see the map of Split harbour or Google maps view of Split harbour). When buying the ferry/catamaran tickets ask where/when you have to embark.
Places on catamarans are limited, however it is possible to buy ticket online in advance (Jadrolinija). Ferry will accept virtually unlimited number of persons. Although the end of September is not the high season on Hvar, on certain days catamaran tickets could be sold out, and we recommend to buy online the tickets for catamarans in advance (directly on Jadrolinija or Krilo Jet websites).
