GETTING TO CROATIA
NOTE: Arrive to your departure city the day prior to your departure, we have a strict check-in time and we cannot wait.
Fly to us
The best way to do it is to fly into the small and wonderful Dubrovnik Airport, also known as Čilipi Airport. 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.
The regular Dubrovnik Airport Shuttle Bus service is provided by Platanus Agency in Dubrovnik. Buses meet all scheduled flights at the Dubrovnik Airport for a transfer to Dubrovnik Main Bus Station in Gruž Port and take about 30 to 40 minutes. The cost is approximately 45 Kuna (€6 or £5.5). It is then a short walk to the boat or if you are a day early, you can either walk or catch a cab to your accommodation.
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 it is approximately 330 Kuna (€44 or £40).

STOKE TRAVEL’S COMMON SENSE GUIDE TO STAYING SAFE
*If at any time you feel unsafe, please don’t hesitate to contact any member of the Stoke Travel crew
As far as situations go, a Stoke Travel trip is amongst the safest. Unlike in the ‘real’ world, everybody here is intent on having a good time with new and old friends – your fellow Stokies are way more likely to hold your hair back while you puke than steal your wallet.
That being so, we’re more in danger of hurting ourselves while on a Stoke Travel trip than falling foul of our fellow travellers. Here’s a quick little guide to partying safe with Stoke Travel.
- Drink plenty of water.
You’re going to drink heaps of beer and sangria, and you’re going to have a plenty big hangover, but you can really limit it by smashing a few cups of water throughout the day and evening.
- Remember to eat!
We’re going to hook you up with some hearty meals, and as the bare minimum that should keep your stomach lined and engine running. Do not skip these meals, even if you are suffering horrifically from one of the aforementioned hangovers.
- Don’t be a creep.
Like, seriously, has that ever worked out for you? Similarly, if you see somebody being a creep and making people uncomfortable let us know and we’ll have a friendly word to them. Sometimes they just don’t realise how gross they are.
- No means no, consent matters.
At a very basic level if you hit on somebody and they say no then you’ve just got to cop that. They’re just not that into you. It sucks for about three seconds, but you’re literally surrounded by hundreds of young, like-minded travellers. Suck it up and move on. When you do find somebody who’s into you and you want to move through the bases, make sure you get consent. It really, really, really, really, really does matter.
- If you see somebody having a bad time, make sure they’re ok.
We are all brothers and sisters and gender non-specific relations out here. If you see somebody struggling in any way, check on them, grab a Stoke staff member and just do what any decent human being would do.
Staying safe at Stoke Travel is super easy, but sometimes we get a little out of control and forget the basics. If you ever find yourself in any kind of situation do not hesitate to contact Stoke staff and we’ll sort you out immediately. We’re here to help – help you have the best time possible. Mwah.

- We have EU electricity outlets onboard so bring an adaptor if you need to
- And a UK power board/strip if you want to quickly become everyone’s best friend
DUBROVNIK to Split
PLEASE CHECK BACK CLOSER TO THE DATE – WE ARE WORKING HARD AT FINALISING YOUR ITINERARY!
Day 1: Dubrovnik
Check in at 11am, before the first voyage, you will get a welcome drink and a speech about the crew, ship rules and a general rundown of itinerary. The afternoon is yours, so you have all day to explore the old town and jump from the famous cliffs outside of the old city walls, or take a Game of Thrones tour. A welcome dinner with your new family at an awesome Mexican restaurant tonight and then go on to what is famed as one of the best disco bars in Croatia, the Culture Club, Revelin, situated in a fortress in the walls of old town.
Day 2: National Park Mljet
Early departure to one of the seven National parks in Croatia, the island of Mljet, with a swim stop along the way. We’ll take an afternoon to stroll along the lakes on the island, kayak, swim in the salt water lakes or even hire a scooter and venture to a hidden cave and grotto. Later we’ll drop the anchor offshore, have dinner on board and kick start our Pirate party! Tonight the party doesn’t stop until the last man goes to bed, blast that music, drink the bar dry and even jump in for a skinny dip!
Day 3: Korcula
We’ll arrive in Korcula harbour around 3pm, giving us enough time to visit the disputed house of Marco Polo and explore old town or chill out on ships sun deck before perhaps heading to Bokar wine bar and taste local Croatian wines and have some cheese/meat/bread nibbles. To start the party, we’ll head to Deja Vu, an outdoor bar run by “Crazy Niki,” before continuing on to Dos Locos, where you can show off your hidden talents on the stripper poles, and if that still isn’t enough you can head for a boogie at Jungle afterwards.
Day 4: Hvar
We arrive in Hvar for lunchtime, but it’s impossible to go to harbour till about 19:00. The boat will be anchored offshore at a relaxing swim location and we will take a taxi boat into town and head up to the Spanjola fortress for a beautiful view before heading down for some beach time or seaside cocktails. Later that night, we’ll head over to SEVEN bar for welcome shots and a fire show, getting warmed up for the all night party at Carpe Diem, the famed techno club based on the island just in front of the harbor.
Day 5: Makarska
We cruise to Makarska, with a swim stop along the way of course. Arriving mid afternoon there is time to throw yourself off some cliff, swim in the bay or even get your junk out at a nudist beach, whatever floats your boat. This night is reserved for partying – what else? – once our bar closes, we will head to a cheap cocktail bar for a boogie before heading to the famous Cave bar.
Day 6: Omiš
We leave Split and head to Omis arriving early afternoon with ample time for exploring or adventuring, stopping for a swim along the way. If you’re up for it, the options are endless – ziplining across 8 cables up to 150m up, rafting down the river Cetina, kayaking through the canyon, the list goes on. That evening, we’ll grab some food from the supermarket and hike up to the old fortress for a sunset picnic. Rest up for the big night ahead in Makarska with a few casual cocktails on a rooftop bar before heading to bed.
Day 7: Split
Arrive in Dubrovnik around lunch time, so that you have all day to explore the Diocletian Palace, which is 1700 years old, HNK Hajduk Split Stadium, the famous Marijan hill, from where you can see the whole town and island. A family farewell dinner in a local restaurant with low prices and large portions. The party starts onboard (enjoy that free booze) and moves to Charlie’s Backpacker’s Bar, before continuing to an open air club near the port.
Day 8: Split
It’s an early breakfast, and then unfortunately, it’s time to say goodbye until our next grand voyage together. You’ll disembark at 8:30am
