Captains and Mates

Our Captain and Mate positions require a degree, proper licenses, and previous experience navigating vessels of similar size to our cruise ships.  Most of our ships are licensed under Subchapter K of USCG regulation. Also, each ship is equipped with the latest safety, navigation, and communications systems. Our Captain positions are ideal for experienced or retired Naval or Coast Guard officers with command experience who are interested in a second career. Further, our Mate positions are perfect for licensed captains who are interested in a leadership role onboard a ship. Both Captains and Mates will receive full benefits and daily competitive pay. They must also have the ability to get along with well-educated, affluent passengers and represent the company in a professional manner.

Both Captains and Mates will work for a rotation of 6 weeks on and 2 weeks off as a part of their full-time employment. This flexible work schedule allows for our Captains and Mates to live anywhere nationally and travel to the ship when necessary. Moreover, on board, both Captains and Mates will receive private accommodations. 

Note: Due to Coast Guard regulations, we can only hire American citizens to work on board our ships. All candidates must also be able to pass a pre-employment drug and alcohol test to be officially hired.
