Question about Boating
Licenses are issued by the Coast Guard, and there are several of them. The lowest is the "6-pack" or "Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessel". This allows you to take up to 6 paying passengers on a boat of less than 50 tons. The 50 ton Master's license is the next step up, then 200 ton, then 500 ton, then unlimited (if I remember correctly). In addition to tests at each level, there are sea time requirements amd with the higher tonnages, you must pass the Mates test and work at that rate before you can sit for that tonnage Master's license. The Coast Guard can tell you everything you need to know.

First, you must know that getting a skipper license isn't easy since it requires responsibility not only for the vassel itself but also for the people and crew aboard. It takes a long time and some bureaucracy to get this license. For more details: http://skippercourse.com/skipper-license-usa and http://www.uscg.mil/nmc/cb_capt.asp

You do not need a license to sail your Yacht. However, if it
is not yours and you are renting it, you may need a sailing license or some
sort of certificate that proofs that you are capable of sailing the boat.
Also keep in mind that this may differ from country to country so you may want to double check.
