Welcome!
Welcome to ferryjobs.net, a free resource for helping find work on
ferry boats and fast ferries. Why do we do this? We like the idea of a
free job resource.

Wages and benefits for ferry jobs will vary with the operators. Ferry
boat job prospects will depend on the grade of your Coast Guard
license, whether you hold endorsements, and familiarity with a
particular body of water for captain and mate position candidates.
For chief engineers, designated duty engineers (DDEs), oilers,
QMEDs (qualified members of the engine department) or other
marine engineering position, your familiarity with a particular diesel
propulsion plant, such as Caterpillar, General Motors or Fairbanks
Morse  can be an asset. Naturally your level of experience, your
geographic location or willingness to relocate will be important
factors.

Ferry, water taxi, shuttle and commuter boat companies regularly
look for captains, mates, able seamen, deckhands, chief
engineers, assistant engineers, QMED (qualified members of the
engine department), ticket collectors. Ferry, water taxi, shuttle and
commuter boat companies also search for shoreside positions
such as ticket sales, maintenance personnel, human resources
people, purchasing agents, bookkeepers, and clerical help. The
inventory of shoreside positions can vary with the size of the ferry
company.

Salaries will depend on vessel size, company policies, hours per
week of work, and regularity of work. Salary will also depend on the
grade of Coast Guard license, limits of tonnage, limits of
horsepower, and possibly, endorsements. Salary and wage
information for different geographic areas can be obtained from the
regional offices of state departments of labor, listed below. Aside
from salary and wage information, these offices may be able to
provide other valuable information and resources.

Good luck!
