Creating a Nation of Confident Captains

We founded Confident Captain to support and build our own community of mariners who understand that though the license may feel small, the job they do everyday is big. We aim to create a nation of confident captains who are trained and prepared to take care of their passengers, earn a good living, and fulfill their calling through our USCG certified courses, training, and license application assistance. Whether you want to operate a high-speed ferry, a private yacht, or a six-passenger charter boat, we’ll give you the tools you need to take the helm with confidence.

NAVIGATING THE COURSE TO ACHIEVING YOUR GOALS

"Opened my eyes"

ANDERSON REGGIO, Professional sailor/navigator

I would never have felt appropriately prepared to take my yacht master practical examination if not for Kent and his team. Peter’s tutelage opened my eyes to areas that I hadn’t previously considered nor explored. I would not have been nearly as successful without his guidance and Kent’s encouragement to pursue this through Confident Captain.

"You hope you never have to use these skills."

Participant, STCW

It was a once in a lifetime experience that you hope you never have to experience at sea. The instructors were amazing and made sure you knew the content before you left the classroom each day.

"Helped me through every step of the way."

Sara Hastreiter, Volvo Ocean Race sailor

The legendary Kent of Confident Captain/Ocean Pros helped me every step of the way with helping me obtain my Yachtmaster ticket. With nothing to gain as I was doing the courses in England, he helped me as I blindly navigated ticketing off one requirement at a time, what and how to study based on my experience, and cheering me on along the way. Thank you for guiding me through!!
