If you're doing this in a US territory, you'll need a USCG license, probably an OUPV or six-pack, but possibly a full ticket, depending on how many people you'd be taking out at a time. As you might guess, for up to SIX passengers an OUPV or six-pack is fine...for more, you need the full captain's license.
In other countries, you may be required to some sort of certification or license. In many countries the RYA yachtmaster ticket is recognized.
I'd point out that unless you have something else to offer—scuba diving, PADi certification for teaching SCUBA, etc., you will probably be hard pressed to compete.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
