Destinations

With eight routes to choose from, there are plenty of places for you to dive right in and explore the local culture and scenery. Taking the Spain trip will send you to Mallorca, a locale perfect for indulging in sand and sea. The Caribbean option will land you in the British Virgin Islands, where relaxation is easy amidst the clear blue ocean. If Croatia is more your style, you can choose between the original route or the Ultra Route, which gives you access to an exclusive VIP section of Ultra Music Festival. No matter the destination, the trip ensures your weeklong yacht party will be fully stocked with adventure.

Yacht Crew

You can get into the Gilligan’s Island spirit by assembling a crew of your favorite people to take on the waters in your chosen city. For smaller groups, you can be paired up with other travelers who are also ready to sail the seas. Those looking for a touch of convenience can upgrade their trip to include a knowledgeable skipper who will navigate your journey, or a hostess to prepare your meals. You and your crew will get to toast your drinks in the lap of luxury alongside dozens of boats full of equally lively partygoers.

Culture

No matter which destination you choose for your vacation on the sea, there is a diversity of cultures for you to explore. The boats dock in each city allowing you to explore, and also attend private parties for you to get to know your fellow boaters. Croatia’s ancient ruins draw in those who’d like to embrace the historical side, while their green caves make for a scenic view perfect for any Instagram shot. You’ll have plenty of tales to bring home from the Thailand route, where you can see fire breathers, snorkel with the sea life, and get a taste of the delectable local street food. The newest addition to the Yacht Week lineup is Montenegro, which boasts exclusive beach and yacht clubs, along with entire fortress towns for you to visit a piece of their history.
