We are a professional organization for Coast Guard-licensed captains across the Chesapeake Bay and along the Atlantic coast. We promote professional development and business opportunities for licensed captains.

Our captains operate charter boats, tour boats, survey and tow vessels, and ocean-going ships. Some provide instructions for new boat owners. Others deliver boats between ports. We have more than 300 licensed captains available to assist boat owners and dealers.
