A Boat Captain maintains ultimate command of the vessel they are operating. While this may be a pressurized and demanding job, it is very much a rewarding experience, requiring someone with excellent man-management skills and an eye for detail.
The Boat Captain has to ensure that all legal and company standards are adhered to in both the vessel and the crew, paying particular attention to any environmental issues such as oil spills or the emission of any other pollutants. The Captain will be responsible for the safety of the crew and any operation of the boat, and so the Captain must regularly inspect vessels to assess whether they are seaworthy, and whether any machinery on-board is safe for use.
