Atlantic Captain's Academy

We offer the following Coast Guard Approved Course

Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessel (OUPV)

This license qualifies the operator to carrying not more than 6 passengers on vessels up to 100 gross tons (GT). Typical employment opportunities include charter boats, sailboats and excursion boats.

Master License

Operators of inspected passenger vessels are required to have this license. The license allows the operator to carry more than 6 passengers. Typical employment opportunities include charter boats, sailboats, ferries, excursion boats and whale watch boats. The vessel size will be limited to 25, 50 or 100 gross tons (GT), depending on your experience.

License Renewal

If a licensed captain does not qualify for renewal due to lack of sea service time, he may in lieu of logging the necessary 360 days on the water since his last issue, attend and complete a renewal refresher course and exam. Submission of diploma from certified school, along with drug test and medical evaluation will satisfy Coast Guard requirements.
