Successful completion of these courses qualifies a boat operator to captain charter boats, water taxis, fishing boats, whale watching vessels, sight-seeing boats, dive boats, and much more. If you take paying passengers onboard boats, you need one of these U.S. Coast Guard approved licenses. Licenses are valid for five years.
