What is the difference between a boating license and a boating certificate?
Boating certificates are often referred to as "boating licenses". At the present time the only State that we are aware of having a "boating license" is Alabama. Connecticut has "boating certificates". You can find a great classroom course provider by clicking "Book Now".
Do I need a boating certificate to train or drive your boat?
No. A boating certificate or "license" is not required to be a trainee or operate a boat with us.
Do you provide boating licenses or certificates?
A great partner who can provide "licensing" can be found by clicking "Book Now". Receiving your boating certificate involves attending what is normally an 8 hour safe boating course in a classroom. We exist to provide one-on-one hands-on training on the water. If you want a recommendation for a great DEEP approved place to go for the classroom course click "Book Now".
Are the prices that I see on the bookings pages "per person"?
The charter pricing that you see on the Bookings page is NOT per passenger. That pricing is for the boat and Captain. The number of passengers is up to you, within limitations. This may change when other boats and captains are added, such as with fishing charters.
Is there an age requirement for training on the boat?
We prefer that trainees be at least 16 years old; there is some flexibility here.
Is the boat wheelchair accessible?
The boat is not wheelchair accessible. Any special accommodations, current injuries or other limitations should be discussed prior to any booking. Additional boats that are added in the future may be wheelchair accessible.
How many passengers can you carry?
Training is for individuals, individual couples, or an adult plus one. There is some flexibility here. Email to discuss.
For charters you can bring yourself plus up to five others. We need to discuss this prior to booking. Ages, size, amount of "luggage", crew if needed, and duration of trip matters.
Can I bring a pet?
This is determined by the captain of whichever vessel you are booking. Captain Morgan would love to meet your friend on his vessel, especially service animals or an equivalent. Let's discuss your specifics.
Where do you operate out of?
We have a network of captains who have boats at various locations. Click "Book Now" to explore options.
Do you have USCG licensed captains?
Yes. A person operating a boat with passengers for hire must be a United States Coast Guard licensed boat Captain. This includes but is not limited to operators who provide hands-on training or charters. There are an extremely limited number of exceptions to this federal law. If pursuing training or a charter always ask to see the operator's Merchant Mariner Credential which will always look like a red passport booklet.
