“This summer we wanted to raise our service to an even higher level. After launching UberSelect and UberVan on the coast, connecting Dalmatia from Novalja to Dubrovnik, UberBoat offers Uber users in Croatia and many foreign tourists a new way of exploring and traveling on the Croatian coast. We are confident that soon after the launch of UberBoat in Split and Dubrovnik, we will extend our service to other places like Šibenik, Zadar, and Korčula. We have no doubt that UberBoat will significantly increase sea cruises on demand and at the same time contribute to the overall growth of Croatian tourism – says Davor Tremac, Director of Uber for South East Europe.
