  • Going for a Captains license is a challenging and rewarding experience. Being an educator and mariner, I understand the effort and dedication needed to successfully complete this course. However, being a successful captain goes beyond just taking the course. It is applying the knowledge gained, plus your 360 plus days on the water experience, to provide a safe and enjoyable time for your clients.
