    For 2010 I am planning to start Kayaking Charters, take people out to fishing spots in Marine NY and target fish.

    What will I need? We will be on multiple boats obviously. My kayak and my patrons kayak which I will provide for there use. Of course I will also teach basic instruction.

    I imagine I will need to be CPR certified, but will I need the 6pack license for this as well? What about a Partyboat/Charter license for NY state? Thank you very much.

    Interesting question. Obviously, if over 6 passengers you will need a master license with the appropriate tonnage. I cannot speak for what your level of responsibility is when they deploy on different vessels away from the mother vessel. My logic tells me your insurance would dictate those types of requirements. I would research what dive charter captains have as I think what you are talking about runs along those lines.
