Explorer’s Guide Online (EGO), America’s premier online captain’s licensing program, is pleased to announce its partnership with the National Professional Anglers Association (NPAA) for the 2021 season. EGO is beyond excited to work with anglers, on-the-water educators, guides, and other professionals as they earn their maritime licenses.

A captain’s license is required for any mariner carrying “passengers-for-hire.” Captain Bobby Carsey, the owner of EGO, is a former Coast Guard Commanding Officer and knows just how crucial proper licensing is to the maritime industry. When discussing the importance of licenses, Captain Bobby said, “Licensed mariners are responsible mariners, and the EGO crew strives to provide the best licensing training possible.” As such, EGO’s licensing programs have been reviewed and approved by the National Maritime Center.

Pat Neu, NPAA Executive Director, said, “We are very excited to welcome EGO as a new NPAA Supporting Partner for 2021. Many of our members are guides, charter captains, and angling professionals who are compensated for their time on the water and who operate on waters where they need their mariner credentials. Having EGO as a partner with our association will allow our members to utilize EGO’s online program to gain the knowledge they need to earn those essential credentials. This partnership is another example of how an NPAA Partnership and an NPAA Membership can help to connect our partners with our members to benefit each.”
