The Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessels (OUPV) License is commonly referred to as a 6-Pack License.

For the purpose of the OUPV endorsement, an uninspected passenger vessel is a vessel of less than 100 GRT (about 65 feet) carrying six or fewer passengers for hire. It is quite popular with those wanting to become fishing guides or charter captains. The total number of passengers is limited to six or fewer. Non-U.S. citizens may be restricted to undocumented vessels with a 5 net ton limit.

Typically, an OUPV Credential is used in the context of small-scale fishing boats, SCUBA boats, whale-watching, and the like.

This course is USCG approved for candidates applying for their Six-Pack – Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessel (OUPV) License.
