Getting There and Checking In

The Yacht Week

By The Yacht Week

Posted on 18th May 2018

Before you arrive:

Fill out crew list

We want your holiday to get off to the perfect start, so please ensure your crew list is completed 4 weeks prior to arrival. Simply log-in to your booking and add your crew following the steps given. Cabin bookers please only add the name of the friend you'll be sharing a cabin with. If you don't do this, you might not get your yacht in time.

Check-in online

Once you have completed your crew list, you can save a lot of time on site if you all check-in online. Each member of the crew must do this before arrival, which will make getting your yacht on time that much easier. Online check-in will open 4 months prior to departure. 

Getting to Croatia

Flights

Split Airport (SPU) is the closest airport to all of our marinas. We recommend using a search engine to find the best flights:

Visas

We recommend using VisaHQ to find out if you require any visas to enter the country - www.visahq.co.uk

Getting to your marina

Split airport to Kastela Marina

Taxi

There are multiple ways of reaching Kastela Marina. Taxi drivers line up outside and it may make the most sense for a larger group of people. Cost is approximately €20-€30 (150 Kuna).

Bus

Directly across the street from the airport is local bus 37 which will take you to the entrance of Kastela Marina. Ask the bus driver to let you know when you reach the correct stop. Buses arrive every 20-30 minutes and cost approximately 12 Kuna. 

Split airport to ACI Split Marina

From Split airport the trip will cost around €40-€50 (300 Kuna) – this is the fastest method of travel and will bring you directly to the marina. Please ask your taxi to take you to F Cafe for TYW check-in.

Bus

Croatian Airlines offers a bus/van from Split Airport to the Riva in Split city center. From there you will need to take a short cab ride or water taxi to the marina. Make sure to specify ACI Split Marina as there are a few marinas nearby. The Croatian Airlines van costs €5 (35 Kuna).

Upon arrival:

Time to arrive/depart 

We recommend you arrive at your base marina around 3pm. This will give you time to register with us, check in with the charter company and complete your food shopping, before you get access to your yacht by around 6pm. 

You will get back to the marina on Friday afternoon (the exact time varies depending on weather conditions), when you will stay one last night on the yachts in the marina and will check out and leave the yacht by 9am on Saturday morning.

Onsite registration for yacht bookers and skipper

The Yacht Week staff will be ready and waiting for you at your marina where you will register and collect your TYW wristband.

Lead Booker: Bring cash/credit card to pay the security deposit* and your passport.

* The security deposit is the maximum cost you can be charged if you damage your yacht or lose equipment. The amount can be found in your booking profile.

Onsite registration for cabin bookers

The skipper will go to the yachting company who is in charge of your yacht. Each cabin guest should give the skipper their deposit in cash. The exact amount will be communicated in your welcome email a couple of weeks prior to departure.

Luggage at check-in

Find a safe place to leave your luggage for the day. The Yacht Week staff do not take responsibility for any lost luggage or items.

Please keep away from the yachts

You will not be able to board your yacht until it has been declared ready by the charter company. Use the time to grab a beer or do your grocery shopping.

Grocery shopping

We recommend shopping close to the marina. Most islands will have supermarkets to stock up throughout the week as well. The team onsite will be able to direct you to the nearest supermarket. 
If shopping for a whole week/crew feels overwhelming, use this shopping list as guidance, it will make sure you won't miss out on any essentials.
