Job Description for Ship Captain

A ship captain is the person in charge of everything that happens on a commercial boat, whether that vessel is involved in commercial freight work, passenger transport, or pleasure cruises for sightseeing or fishing. On a boat of any commercial size, the captain typically supervises a crew and helps to ensure the seaworthy nature of the ship until it reaches its destination. Because of the dangers and damages that can result if a ship is mishandled, typically a ship captain is given extraordinary responsibilities to guide everything that happens on his or her vessel.
