Master Captain Mark's License allows him to take you out as far as 100 nautical miles (115 miles) from the coast in ANY vessel up to 100 Gross Tons.

In addition, Captain Mark has obtained a TWIC card (Transportation Worker Identification Credential). The TWIC program provides a tamper-resistant biometric credential to maritime workers requiring unescorted access to secure areas of port facilities, outer continental shelf facilities, and vessels regulated under the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002, or MTSA.

The cost for the above is dependent upon job description, and duration of time.
