Departures of the catamaran from Piran with transfers from Portorož
The catamaran departs from Piran in Slovenia due to the fact that there are no border crossings in Portorož. Considering that Portorož and Piran are divided only by a hotel complex (Bernardin), we offer free of charge bus transfers from Portorož to the pier of departure and back for all guests wanting to sail with us from Piran to Venice either for a one day excursion or for a one way sailing Portorož – Venice or Venice – Portorož.
