Pathfinder Maritime Training (PMT) is a commercial, maritime licensing provider and recreational boating educator.
PMT’s mission is to “Help mariners achieve their licensing goals.” We accomplish this by providing the highest quality training possible and unbeatable support making earning a license simple and easy for mariners of all experience levels.
PMT is owned and operated by Capt. Bobby & Bekah. Capt. Bobby is a Coast Guard (CG) veteran who has professionally sailed throughout the world, including the Atlantic, Pacific, Bering Sea, Great Lakes, Persian Gulf, and Gulf of Mexico. Notably, Capt. Bobby served as the Commanding Officer of a CG cutter and earned his CG Cutterman’s pin for proficiency in seamanship. During his military & civilian career, he has trained countless international and domestic crews in seamanship, navigation, and vessel safety.
Bekah, a lifelong boater, grew up exploring Lake Superior’s waters and remote islands. Some of her fondest memories include surviving a storm on Lake Superior, deep sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, and cruising European rivers. Bekah is responsible for PMT’s marketing and technology. Bekah loves helping other adventurous females get involved in boating.
