The Island Line Bike Ferry is Vermont's only bike ferry service, one of the most scenic in the world, bringing cyclists and pedestrians across "the Cut", a 200-foot gap on the beautiful Colchester Causeway.
We are seeking Coast Guard Certified Captains to operate our two Bike Ferries, both pontoon boats: a 20-passenger 45’ footer requiring a USCG 25-Ton Master's license, and a 6 passenger 30' Bike Ferry requiring a USCG Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessel license, aka a '6-pack' license.
We run the boats in all weather from Memorial Day to Columbus Day each year. Captains are needed for fill-in shifts, for up to a few days a month. In 2015, there will be a few day’s work in August and possibly September and October, and in 2016, there will be fill-in shifts all summer.
