One of the Coast Guard's missions for charter vessels is to ensure all charter boat captains have the appropriate safety equipment and level of boating and operational expertise required to keep their passengers safe while they are aboard.

"6-Pack charters" are a common type of charter that captains will offer to the public. Do you know what the Coast Guard requires for a 6-Pack? Check out the graphic below to learn about them!
