Many cruisers ask about how to earn money to supplement their cruising funds. Having your USCG Captain’s License is certainly one of the ways. The business of being on Yacht A Fun, our Gemini sailing catamaran, includes providing boating related contract services. That can mean serving as a captain on other company’s boats as well as our own. Not bad, eh?
A couple of weeks ago I connected with Captain Dave, who owns the New Bern, NC based “Aerie Ferry” pontoon tour boat. Thankfully we hit it off and so I now have the pleasure of taking passengers for a tour which begins along the Neuse River, turns under the A.A. Cunningham Bridge, and continues through the rail road swing bridge- which begins the Trent River portion of the trip. Ultimately we reach the house of author Nicholas Sparks and loop back. It’s a total of twelve miles paced to highlight points of interest over twelve miles in 90 minutes.
