Winter 2022 Employment eNews

The Winter 2022 Employment eNews is jobs, jobs, and more jobs. Especially for the small passenger vessel fleet. Additionally, these jobs will be available starting spring and summer. However, there are many openings for deckhands in the towing fleet as well.

Small Passenger Vessels

The small passenger vessel fleet includes tour boats, fishing guides, and charter boats. Additionally, these vessels may carry passengers on short excursions, day trips, or even on overnight voyages. Secondly, these vessels are classified as either inspected or uninspected. And thirdly, they operate on inland and or ocean waters. Consequently, the mariner applying for one of these jobs must hold the appropriate license.

Elfin Cove Alaska. We are looking for a charter boat captain to come work at our remote fishing lodge in Elfin Cove Alaska. This is a seasonal job from May-August. This job requires an OUPV/ Six pack near coastal license and passing a drug test. Compensation is based on experience discussed with owner, tips, flights, and room and board. Please Email Resume and References to Michael Legowski (907-957-8103).

The OUPV license (AKA 6-pack captain) is for operating small uninspected passenger vessels. Meaning, vessels of less than 100 GRT (about 65-feet). To clarify two important points about the 6-pack. Firstly, it has a six-passenger limit. And secondly, it will have an Inland or Near Coastal route.

The Master 25, 50, or 100 GRT captain is for operating small-inspected vessels. Meaning, vessels carrying more than six-passengers. Additionally, the master can operate a six-pack too. Secondly, the master will also have an Inland or Near Coastal route as well.
