SKIPPER MIŠE MAMIĆ
I was born in Zagreb on the 20th of May, 1968, as the fifth and the last child in the family. My parents were struggling to meet the ends and could never afford spending summer holidays at the sea. As a result of not being in contact with the sea, I almost drowned on the entrance examination at the Faculty of kinesiology in Zagreb. However, I passed the examination, graduated 5 years later and now I hold the title of Master of Kinesiology. The first contact with the sea was indeed the love on the first sight. Just as in the saying, I felt connected with the whole world. In 1996, without any previous experience with sailing and boating, I bought a 19ft large sailboat and sailed out with only a manual "On the sailboat" by my side. It was truly an 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 professionaly as a skipper and, of course, I started to charge for my services :-).
I am a true adventurer, in love with the sports and nature, but especially with the sea and sailing. What excites me the most in this profession is meeting new people from all over the world and sharing both my knowledge about the sailing area and my 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 a calm manner.
GUESTS ABOUT MIŠE
"My role in previous charters was the Skipper, and this often meant a certain degree of stress and responsibility. For this Charter we agreed to hire a Skipper and give someone else the responsibility so I could enjoy every moment without continuously having an eye on the wind. Again Ivana came up with the best in Mise Mamic."
"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 could have never gotten from the guidebooks."
"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."
