Captain Jerry Nolte has been a U.S. Coast Guard licensed Captain since 1990.

How long have you been doing this?
I’ve been running a Charter Service for over 28 years, first on Lake Michigan and then out of Stuart, Florida and Ocean City, Maryland. We have retired the "big boat" and moved to the river.

What did you do before this?
I was a corporate pilot and flew a Citation III for a corporation that moved out of state.

Is this your full time job?
No. I own and operate the Snow Hill Business Center, a copy shop in Snow Hill. I also build furniture and wood craft items that we sell at Jerry's Wood Craft located at 112 W. Green Street in Snow Hill.

What else do you do?
I've been diving since 1967 including 4 years in the Navy's UDT / SEAL Teams. I am also a NAUI instructor #3455.

Do you have a family?
Yes. My wife, Diana, is retired from a 45 year long career in computer science. She now works full time in our toy and wood craft store at 112 W. Green Street in Snow Hill. We have two married children and 6 grandchildren.
