About Us

Nautical Express was started by Captain Raymond Novak after finding Private Owners and boat renters had no place to turn for professional and trustworthy Captains to drive and maintain their boats. With 20 years of boating experience, Captain Raymond knows what it takes to be a professional and competent Captain, holding all his employees to that same level.

  • We provide captain services on boats ranging from 30-70' in size.
  • We are familiar with boat systems including generators, fuel systems, gas engines, and diesel engines.
  • We provide full safety checks for all vessels that we have been hired to drive prior to departure.
  • All new boats are required to have an initial safety and running check prior to the day of the scheduled service to ensure proper safety for all passengers.
  • All our Captains are licensed through the US Coast Guard and are held in good standing.
  • We also can provide boat training for learning how to drive or deal with your mechanics.
