Our original route is a gathering of summer-loving seafarers from around the world with more yachts than any other destination. Croatia’s serene seas and enchanting towns create the perfect stage for an insane event and continue to call us back year after year.
The most famous of all The Yacht Weeks, this is probably the one you saw in the video and were like, 'We’ve GOT to do this.'
This is an example route. A detailed itinerary of your week will be released 2 weeks before the event.
It’s well worth a wander along the vibrant waterfront of the second-largest city in Croatia. You can't visit Split without discovering the Diocletian’s Palace in Split Old Town. Inside this impressive Roman monument are an array of vibrant local restaurants and colourful shops. Remember to check which marina you will leave from - all are a short drive from Split Airport.
This typical Croatian fishing village is an oasis of peace and quiet, making it the perfect destination for a little rest away from the hustle of the city. The locals call it “Valle di mille navi” (The Bay of a Thousand Ships) as it has long been considered a favourite stop for sailors. There are four sand-pebbled beaches situated beside beautiful pine forests which provide perfect shade for anyone looking to escape the hot sun.
The Yacht Week’s signature circle or tunnel rafts are a chance to spend the afternoon swimming in the sea and mingling with other crews. These evenings are very spontaneous and become quite festive with a variety of parties happening on each yacht to take your pick from.
Welcome to the St. Tropez of Croatia! Anyone who is anyone has been seen along this marble waterfront which is filled with boutiques, bars and restaurants. Two of the most popular TYW events are hosted in Hvar; one at Hula-Hula beach bar and the other at Carpe Diem, both to be enjoyed in considerable style, of course. All yachts are moored in Palmizana marina right outside Hvar.
A charismatic small fishing village located on the western bay of Vis island. Its ochre coloured houses and beautiful front are filled with quirky restaurants and ice-cream pop ups. Most of the yachts will anchor here and take a taxi boat to the pier in the evening. Around the corner from the village is the beach club where we will host the open air party right on the water’s edge.
Croatia’s most distant and untouched island was only opened to foreigners in 1994 as it was the military headquarters for Tito. As a result, historical architecture is rife in Vis. Including Fort George, a restaurant and venue set within the crumbling walls of an old British outpost built in 1813. The panoramic view from the bohemian styled garden is just as memorable as the food and this is where we will host arguably the best party of the week.
Often called 'Museum City', Trogir is known for its high concentration of historical monuments such as the Kamerlengo fortress and the sacred sculpture of the Blessed John of Orsini. The town is also renowned for the diversity of architecture found in its churches, palaces and towers. From Romanesque to Renaissance—the range of styles found here will even impress the well-travelled.
Sailing Croatia isn't complete without a stop at the Green Caves. Grab your dinghy and drive around this natural grotto. If you look up once inside, you'll be able to spot a small hole on the cave’s ceiling, sending sparkling green light and creating a magical atmosphere.
When sailing to Vis, a stop at Croatia’s Blue Caves is an absolute must. The cave’s name speaks for itself: it's lit in the purest of blue tones, when the sun peeks into the cave through a hole in the rocks. The best time to experience this sort of lighting is between 12pm - 2pm, so be sure to give yourself extra time to get there.
At this point along the route, you're probably used to the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic. But the Blue Lagoon of Drvenik and Krknjasi islands takes it one step further. Make sure you take your snorkeling gear for this one, swimming amongst these islands promises to be a mesmerizing experience.

The exact routes are set a few weeks before the event starts. As soon as the routes are set, you will be able to view it on your booking. If you are booking with other yachts, you must ensure all yachts are booked from the same marina to ensure your group will remain together for the duration of the week.
We work with various marinas in Croatia and they are all located relatively close to Split airport. The marina you will depart from and return back to depends on the yacht you choose. The marina is specified on yacht cards and in your booking.
We recommend to get to the marina between 1-2pm. Then you will have time to register with us, do the check-in with the yachting company and the food shopping before you get your yacht. The yachts normally set sail between 4-6pm. You will get back to the marina on Friday afternoon and have to check out and leave the yacht before 9am on Saturday morning.
