TOMISLAV ŠELENDIĆ - CAPTAIN
Tomislav Šelendić was born on 1984. In Split, Croatia, he has been living most of his life on the beautiful island of Brač, right across the town of Split. This is why he has been connected to the sea from an early age, as he has spent his childhood surrounded by the island’s untouched nature and the cry of seagulls. He learned to become a chef, but his love for the sea was stronger, and he decided to move from the kitchen to the deck and became a deckhand on a fishing boat. Eventually, he was promoted to helmsman, and after a couple of years, at 22, he became the captain of his fishing boat. When he was 26, he decided to replace the fishing industry with tourism and since then has been working on various ships, gathering experience which is now over 14 years.
His personality is why he decided to change profession – he enjoys working with people. He is a very communicative person, always in a good mood. And this job allows him to dedicate himself entirely to his guest’s wishes and fulfill them all.
In his spare time, he enjoys big game fishing and cooking.
