Each year we have a number of seasonal positions for friendly crew, stewards and skippers to work on our fleet of boats. Vacancies will be listed below, but we are always interested in hearing from people who have the right skills and experience. To apply for a position please email your CV to and let us know why you would like to work with us.

Ferry Boat Captain
