Getting jobs as a captain

Favoriting specific boats

After you create a captain profile, there are two ways to get assigned to a boat:

  • Look at the search results for boats in your area. If a boat is accepting new captains, it will have an “Activate” button that you can click to be assigned to that boat.
  • Boat owners can “favorite” you as a captain. This associates you with their boat as a suggestion for renters, who determine who operates the boat.

Adjusting job settings

You can also set preferences for either general boats you can be assigned to (e.g. length, type, distance traveled) or you may select specific boats to captain:

  • Adjust your preferences for boats you would like to captain. You will only appear as a captain option for boats that meet your preferences.
  • Go to: Captain dashboard > My jobs > Matches > Change settings
