"Read What Previous Groups Have to Say"

Troop 81

"I can't thank you enough for another wonderful trip on the Dream Catcher. It was truly rewarding to hear the conversations between the scouts and their parents at the airport while we were waiting for our bags. Scouts that are known for one word answers were chatting away, non-stop. The scout were comparing fish sightings, weather information, as well as what the worst job was. These were all experiences of a lifetime.

Our crew spent over 6 months discussing and preparing for the five days of sailing. This being my second trip with you, I was able to describe the beautiful snorkeling, the sailing and teamwork that the scouts would be experiencing. One of my fears was the trip would not live up to my descriptions. That was not a problem as you and Captain Alan Weeks provided a fun and informative sail training experience.

I have had the opportunity to bring each one of my sons on your ship and they both have come away with some great memories. I hope at some point in the future, I can schedule my third trip and bring one or both sailing again.

Thanks again, and I look forward to sailing on the Dream Catcher in the future."

Sincerely,
Bill Marineau - Asst. Scout Master, Troop 81

"Thanks from Boy Scout Troop 338!"

"I can’t imagine how our Boy Scout troop could have had a better time on your vessel. We all arrived safely home through Indianapolis airport, got all our stuff and headed out for lunch with their parents who came to meet them. The conversations were non-stop from even the quietest boys all about the great experiences you provided. The parents were fascinated with the things their boys got to experience, how well they did them, and how excited they were!!! Having been on many boat trips myself as a diver I was extremely pleased with your consistent balance of running a tight ship with an unrelenting focus on safety - yet, you kept the tone very positive and fun by integrating your teaching directly into the boys’ adventure. They clearly became a cohesive crew and it was neat to see how the different ages and abilities bonded with each other. They were thrilled to learn to pilot the boat, raise, lower, and trim the sails, and even deal with the boat’s maintenance. Having your long-boat and kayaks along really added to their experience. I appreciated that your snorkeling and boating gear was of good quality, in good condition, and well organized. Several of the boys commented how they really enjoyed how your considerable depth of knowledge and explanations of the entire area really made the history came alive and be much more real for them. All of them increased their appreciation of how to apply their knot-tying scout training. I think the comments of the four of the older boys that are or about to be Eagle Scouts who had been on many high adventure trips best summed up this experience when they said “this was the best adventure trip” they had ever done."
