SKIPPER MIŠE MAMIĆ
I was born in Zagreb on 20th May 1968th as a fifth and last child in the family. My parents were struggling to meet the ends and never could afford spending summer holidays at the sea so I almost drown on entrance examination at the Faculty of kinesiology in Zagreb. But I passed it, graduated 5 years later and now hold the title of Master of Kinesiology. The first contact with the sea was indeed the love on the first sight, I felt connected with the whole world just as in the saying. In 1996, without any previous experience with sailing and boating I bought 19ft large sailboat and sailed out accompanied only with a manual "On the sailboat". It was the real adventure that I could have written a book about. I've been sailing ever since. My first engagement as a professional skipper was a couple of years later for a group of 7 beautifull girls. In 2 weeks we sailed from Biograd to Dubrovnik and back, visiting each port and bay on the way. I agreed with them to work free of charge just for the sake of obtaining some skippering experience. After that I started to work as a skipper professionaly and, of course, to charge for my services :-).
I am a true adventurer, in love with the sports and nature, especially with the sea and sailing. What turns me on the most in this profession is meeting new people from all over the world and sharing with them my knowledge about the sailing area and passion for the sea and sailing. Years of experience in the nautical and other kinds of tourism have taught me to always put the client's interest first and approach the problems in calm manner.
GUESTS ABOUT MIŠE
"Our captain, Mise, was like having a dear friend aboard with us - who also happened to be extremely knowledgeable and proficient at sailing and operating the boat to ensure we had a stress-free trip. We genuinely enjoyed his company and conversation; he shared all sorts of stories and information about Croatia that we never could have gotten from the guidebooks. He took us to secluded swimming spots where we were truly alone with the Sea. As we planned our exact course, he gave us all the options for each port (anchoring, docking, etc) and explained the pros and cons of each but it was always our decision. He also gave us tips for things to check out each place we stopped - the hike he recommended in Mljet was one of our favorite experiences of the trip! Mise is an authentically wonderful human being and you know from the instant you meet him that you are in great hands."
"It's a difficult thing, being a charter skipper, coming into a group of friends who you've never met before, and having to fit in. Miše struck the balance between giving us space and being accessible, being friendly and helpful while not being intrusive. Miše, our skipper, was a certified A1 gold-plated legend. Friendly, charming, competent, fastidious, helpful, careful, considerate, humorous and informative - words are not enough! Seriously, get Miše for your skipper."
"Skipper Miše was an experienced operator who knew the best routes, swimming spots and mooring locations/marinas. He made our trip a breeze and truly enjoyable I would not hesitate to recommend him for any charter in Croatia."
