Boat Licence-permits- needed to operate a taxi boat in Nicaragua

Hi, I am just back from a 5 week 'business seeking tour' of Panama Costa Rica and Nicaragua.  My Spanish wife and I (I am English) have found an opportunity to setup and offer a taxi boat service within Nicaragua, which is the country (out of the three visited) we fell in love with.

Does anyone have any knowledge of what motor boat captain licences/permits/qualifications are needed and if any, how/where to get them?  The maximum passenger number would be x 20 passengers.

We realise we need public liability insurance and set-up the business in Nicaragua, but we are struggling to find information of the boat licence/permit issue. Even the Ministerio de transporte e Infrastructura (maritime dept) doesn't seem to be able to help!

Any help/guidance/suggestions/contacts would be welcomed!!
