My good friend is a manager at Chilkat Guides in Haines, Alaska. They are looking for captains, and possibly a port captain for the summer 2012 season. Minimum requirement is 50 Ton master’s license to operate brand new 40-foot North River aluminum RIBs with double or triple outboards. Primary operation is carrying passengers between Skagway and Haines AK, and taking people out to Glacier Point. Persons with southeast Alaska experience or local knowledge preferred.
I don’t know for sure, but I think company housing may be available in Skagway for the summer. In any case, they are a good company to work for, and driving these new boats should be fun. This is a seasonal, summer-time job, and they would like to start interviewing people starting in January.
