Our day with Out to Sea Split, Croatia’s biggest boat party

Boat Party in Split Croatia is among young adults’ most popular day trips. Although we aren’t into partying hard, we wanted to experience what it would be like to attend Croatia’s biggest boat party – Out to Sea Split.

During our most recent visit to Split, we joined the Out to Sea Split Boat Party to share the first-hand experience with our readers.

Choosing the Split Boat Party

Although there are few companies in Split organizing boat parties, we chose the Out to Sea Split Boat Party because it is known for its vibrant atmosphere and high-energy music. After researching online and reading reviews, we felt this would be the perfect choice for our day excursion.

The Out to Sea Split Boat Party was founded in 2022 but has quickly become one of the most popular day activities in Split and on the entire Dalmatian Coast.

They provide a boat party and a swim stop in the famous Blue Lagoon, a pre-party at check-in, and free entry into one of Split’s most popular nightclubs, so we had to give it a go ourselves.

Split Croatia Boat Party, Our Experience

Our day began with check-in at Jimmy Bar, a small local cafe on Split’s waterfront. We and many other partygoers came to collect our wristbands. The hosts greeted us and explained how our day on the boat would look. Drinks were flowing, especially ciders, and this was a great time to meet everyone before boarding the boat.

Upon boarding, each guest gets a free shot to swiftly take before either heading upstairs to the dancefloor/sundeck or choosing some comfortable booth seating downstairs. After a quick welcome announcement, a local DJ starts playing diverse tunes from tech house to club bangers to singalongs.

The boat easily fits over 200 people, and the dancing started when we left Split’s port. The range of 1L cocktail buckets was a crowd favorite, and staff ensured the ice didn’t even have a chance to melt as the beer funnels were brought out and drink-downing competitions began. One important, ideal point was that they accepted card payment on board, which most boats don’t offer.

After two hours of following the coastlines of a few islands, we reached the famous Blue Lagoon, just off Veliki Drvenik, for our swim stop. The swim stop helped everyone cool off, as it was a scorching day on the Adriatic.

At the front of the boat, there is a platform for those who aren’t bothered by heights, and on the lower deck, there is a ladder for entry and exit of the boat. Inflatables are set up and attached to create a floating platform for guests to swim and relax in the sun.

After a swim, it was the perfect time to tuck into some snacks; hot toasties, chips, and other finger foods were needed to fill everyone’s bellies before starting the party again.

A slow return to Split was capped off with a fantastic sunset, perfect for those trying to capture the perfect Instagram moment. The last hour was when the party started to turn up.

Atmosphere on the Out to Sea Split boat party

Everyone joining together on the dancefloor and singing songs from the likes of ABBA capped off what was an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime experience with Out to Sea. Their bartenders were friendly and always willing to give out shots any chance they could, and it set the tone for an amazing evening.

The boat arrived where it began, at Split’s port around 8 pm, and staff informed us that our wristbands also got us free entry into Bacvice Beach Club.

Or better yet, if we didn’t want the party to stop there, we were offered a discount to join the night parties they host with Split After Dark. Split After Dark is a mixture of a bar crawl but with a crazy neon nighttime boat party as one of the stops, including free entry into the nightclub.

All in all, it was a very worthwhile experience. Even if you aren’t into partying but don’t mind some music, this tour is much more affordable than the usual Blue Lagoon tour.

And, with the added value of the free welcome shots, free VIP nightclub entrance, free photography, and the atmosphere that Out to Sea Split creates, we recommend this as a must-do while visiting Split, Croatia.

If you want to join either of these experiences, we have a discount code: FRANKABOUTCROATIA, which gives everyone 10% off.
