Stoke Afloat Croatia Cruise 2017


August 5-12/ August 12-19

Stoke Afloat will take you on a crazy island hopping adventure on the coast of Croatia!

Includes an awesome 8-day cruise, accommodation on our boat, breakfast and lunch daily and experienced Stoke guides to lead you on wild nights out on the town! 

This summer Stoke will be sailing along Croatia for a dose of shenanigans and skulduggery, canoodling and cliff-jumping under the blazing Adriatic sun. Jump on Stoke Afloat for anything but smooth sailing, come on we dare ya!

Where and what?

Get Stoked on the craziest cruise to hit the high seas! We depart from Split in Croatia and hop along the most beautiful islands in between until we reach Dubrovnik. There we’ll fulfill all of our Croatian fantasies, seek Dothraki and maybe even pick up a Khaleesi  along the way. Underwater caves, old bomb fortresses and the stunning Golden Cape are just the tip of the sandbar among the places we see by day, while our nights are filled with the best bars for miles around! We’ll hit up a Stripper Pole Bar, seize the night at Carpe Diem, sip on Pink Champagne and rave at Croatia’s biggest club Revelin. Then we’ll turn around and do it all again from Dubrovnik back to split returning with blurred memories and perfect tans.
 We’ll sleep on a gorgeous ship fully facilitated for fulfilling your sailing fantasies: toilets and showers, onboard chef and fully stocked bar. And this wouldn’t be Stoke Travel if  we didn’t make sure you had an alcoholic beverage in your hand at your command. Whether it’s a cold beer, some regional wine, a sunset cocktail or rum from an empty baked bean can – we have it all and we’ll force it down your gullet if need be.

But where will we go and what will we do?

From ancient walled cities to the highest coastal mountain range in the Mediterranean. Historic islands and raging party ports. Nightclubs and scuba diving. Sunbaking on the deck or swan diving from the mast. If it is fun and if it is near water we’ll be doing it.

Who’s onboard?

Don’t worry, the Stoke Crew aren’t going to be the ones sailing the ship, the family that owns and operates the boat will be in charge of that, with their generations of experience sailing these waters. 
We’ll have our Stoke Travel guide on board inventing historical facts, encouraging binge drinking and convincing cute members of the opposite sex to make out with you.
The average number of wenches and scurvy dogs onboard is about 25. Considering that they’ve booked with Stoke Travel you can be assured that they’re going to be just about the funnest, loosest canons getting around Europe this summer.

Tell me more about the boat.

Our boats are traditional family owned and operated Croatian sailing vessels and no two are the same. The deck is designed for lying prostrate and praying to the sun gods (and private too – all the better for frying those eggs or giving the impossible-to-tan man’s upper thighs a workout), with the all-important designated shady areas for Scotsmen, albinos and those wanting to swill a beer and trade tales of the high seas.

    Fly to us

    The best way to do it is to fly into the small and wonderful Split Airport, also known as Resnik it is a small international airport only has one runway and one terminal, so pretty easy to find your way around. Stoke likes to fly with Easyjet or Vueling, or whoever else is looking the cheapest on Skyscanner.


    There are direct Airport Buses that go to Split Main Bus station they take 30-40 minutes and cost around €4. From there hop in a taxi to the boat.


    To locate the Taxi rank you leave the arrivals Hall via the main exit and just outside is the queue for the taxis. To get to the city centre it costs around 300 Kuna.
