Chris Smith

I grew up vacationing at Lake of the Ozarks and I know the lake well.
After retiring I moved to the lake full time.
I then attended World Wide Marine Training LLC to become a
US Coast Guard Licensed Captain. I obtained my 25-ton Masters
License. I then began chartering for a few different people on Lake of
the Ozarks. I soon learned that I really enjoyed driving the larger
boats. I was then hired to work on the Celebration boats and was able
to obtain my 100-ton Masters License. With this rating I would be able
to Captain any size boat on Lake of the Ozarks. In 2023 I worked for
Redhead Yacht Club, Captain Craig’s Luxury Charters, Shady Gators,
The Getaway Watercraft Rentals, Pirates Point and a handful of private owners looking for a Captain to drive their personal boats.
I have driven all sizes of boats from pontoon to 58′ Sea Rays.
I have been very busy doing Captain work and enjoy every day I’m on the water.
