Captain
Jacob Bonds
Born: 1969
License: USCG Master
Chef
Stephanie Bonds
Born: 1980
License: STCW
Jake’s affable good nature, easy-going personality and caring demeanor have made him many, lifelong friends. He is an excellent captain and holds a USCG Master Captain 100-ton certification. He is also a true Renaissance man with an astonishing array of skills and talents. As an adult, Jake won many tournaments playing rugby for years with the Highwaymen Rugby Club. He was a licensed General Contractor and Real Estate Broker in California. Always good with his hands, he is a Master Carpenter/cabinetmaker/furniture maker/boat builder. (He put these skills to great use as a volunteer rebuilding after IRMA in Sint Maarten.)

He can play the guitar, ukulele and piano, and build giant, 6-foot sand castles. Jake is also a PADI Dive Master and Dreamcatcher is stocked with dive gear. He loves showing people the wonders of the underwater environment here in the Caribbean. The fun factor on an interactive charter aboard Dreamcatcher is high.

Jake was born in Pittsburgh, Penn, raised with his brother outside of Atlanta, GA. and moved to California at age 15. With typical humor he says that this tri-state upbringing “resulted in a progressive spirit mixed with southern charm.” The Pacific Ocean inspired his first dreams of sailing and living on the sea. He was 16 and his best friend in high school lived on a sailboat in Sausalito, CA. This playful introduction to seamanship quickly became a lifetime passion.

Jake lives by the motto “Be the random acts of kindness you wish to see in the world.” He cares deeply about the people that come into his life and goes out of his way for them. He wants new friends coming aboard to know; “We live on our boat year-round. We want our guests to feel like it is their home as well while they are with us. We want to welcome them into our lives so they can enjoy what we get to see and do every day.” Welcome to paradise aboard Dreamcatcher!


Stephanie’s motto is “Live your best life”. For her, that also means making sure that her guests are living their best lives every minute they’re on board DREAMCATCHER. She says, “Most people come on to our boat as a guest, but leave as family. It is important to me to treat each guest like I would a dear friend and to pay attention to their needs. “ Stephanie is a farm girl from Santa Rosa, California. She helped the family raise cows, chickens, sheep and pigs, and tend a huge, one-acre vegetable garden. She had 20 acres of land, trees and a creek to romp in with her brother and sister. There were many family outings to nearby beaches, lakes and rivers. Love was everywhere.

As soon as she could hold a spoon Stephanie was a kitchen helper. She learned to cook true farm-to-table meals from a young age. She says, “I was always in the kitchen alongside my Nona, Mom and Dad, preparing meals, learning how to make fresh pastas and sauces, and canning fruits and vegetables.” That is exactly what she brings to the menu aboard DREAMCATCHER: fresh, local, high-quality, homemade from scratch. Guests’ favorites include: Spicy curry chicken with sweet coconut rice and braised beef short ribs in rich red wine ragu with pureed potatoes.

Her friends, both old and new, describe her as loyal, sweet, kind, and a great chef. For guests interested in recipes and tips, she’s always happy to share. Stephanie says, “Seeing people enjoy the foods I prepare is the greatest gift. I love communicating to people how much they mean to me through food.” While her food is superb, she is also an excellent first mate, delightful hostess and patient teacher for those who need a bit of instruction with the water toys and gear.

Treats from the Galley
Enjoy Stephanie's delicious cuisine
March 1-6, 2019 - Totally Pampered!
We have been pampered in the best way! Enough activity to keep us entertained as well as enough down time so we go home rested! Stephanie is a wonderful cool and Jake was willing to take us wherever we wanted to go! - Charlotte Thank you for being a part of our lives. This vacation was very much a coming home. Leaving will mark the beginning of coming back. Charlotte and Joe
March 16-22, 2019 - Creating memories with people we love!
A trip filled with adventure, games, delicious meals, hiking, swimming, yoga, wine, booze, laughs, sand, salt, stories, turtles, octopus, goats, birds, crabs and dogs. (The best island dogs- Daisy and Roscoe). Dingy rides, sun bathing, paddle boarding, art making, reading, music (introducing you to Rob Ricardo) back flips, salt water baths, and most of all creating memories with people we love. Thank you for hosting Lexi, Aaron, Jonah and I. Until next time, Sarah. Thank you Stake and Jeff for providing this lovely trip for me and my fam. I had such a wonderful time exploring beaches, roaming around town and playing games with you guys! I wouldn’t want to spend my spring break and other way (duh). I never want to leave! But unfortunately everything good must come to and end. Love you guys both, Lexi
April 7-17, 2019 - Loved Every Minute of It!
We absolutely loved every minute of our vacation and stay with the two of you! Thank you Jake for sharing your special birthday week with us! Big 50!! That lobster dinner was one of the best I’ve ever eaten. We are sad we no longer have you in the states but are so excited to be a part of your new adventure! Thank you for inviting us into your home and taking such good care of us while we were here. Can’t wait to start planning our next trip! Cassandra, Robert and Blakleigh
April 18-22, 2019 - This is what Happiness Looks Like!
Capt. Jake & Stephanie, This morning, Jonathas showed me a video he took while I was sleeping. It was a solid two minutes of hearty, motor (or engine) like snoring. Although I probably need a C-Pap now, I have not been this rested in so long. I was wondering if it were the fresh air, or the warmth of your company, or the blue of the ocean I have no vocabulary for, a gentle rock of Dreamcatcher’s hull. Or all of them. Now that I’ve waxed poetic, I’d like to thank you for opening your life to us and giving us a glimpse at what happiness looks like. We hope to be back, snore a little bit more, live a bit more. Yours Miles & Jonathas
June 6-12, 2019 - Food for the Soul!
Dear Jake & Stephanie & Roscoe & Daisy, First of all... your couple name of course should be “steaks”. Just thought of that now, lol. If I didn’t start this letter off with a corny joke, it wouldn’t be me now would it? Right now I’m sitting in the cockpit of Dreamcatcher reflecting on exactly how many things I’d like to thank you for from this week. To start with, I knew I would love you guys the first night we piled in the dingy and headed to Lagoonies... laughing at each other through torrential downpour of rain. Then there was the buffoon heckling Jakes body language, and the lovely French woman declaring, “he’s a barbarian!!” Then Martin played songs by Jack Johnson and we all quietly sang along as we watched the locals mingle and dance in the muggy night. One can’t usually enter a space like that with as much chameleon grace as a first timer to a new country... Thank you for being our guides and making this so much deeper than a tourist experience. We loved listening to the stories you readily shared - about truth or dare and lessons learned and pranks played... the love you have for your kids is evident, touching and heartwarming. Stephanie made fantastic foods, gave me honest and perspective filled advice on boat life and always made us feel as if we really belonged here. Thank you. We loved that you welcomed us to a heart dinner and rousing game of dominoes while Patrick loudly complained about the beach music. Then there was the all you can eat candy buffet Jake bestowed upon us or last night here where he patiently listened to us tell a rambling array of stories from our own journeys. (And thank you Jake for listening with compassion and for sharing the perspective you’ve gained from your experience to give me a compass in my concern for my better that will always mean so much to me.) Em and I have the opportunity a few nights before we left to sit on the trampolines and talk about so many things that had been on lockdown since the whirlwind of our recent move... things like astronomy and travel, friendship, spirituality and reminiscing about our past enough to recognize new areas of our own growth... food for the soul. The lapping water and retired volcanoes dotted through with gentle lights created by what I call a “moment made eternity” something that will always stay with me no matter where I go. You see, for years now, I’ve had a distant link in my mind between the view of masts disappearing into the night sky and the word “home”. I hope that someday this will be literal as well as spiritual, but either way... I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your mast- and your home with me. Much love to you both and to the boat dogs... Lydia and Em
22-25 December, 2019 - Last Minute Christmas Charter
Note from Broker and client: I am very happy we could actually book Peggy on this charter and with Steph, Jake and the pups, this was a true perfect match: Lela, I just wanted to say thank you for approaching my last minute, challenging situation with such a wonderful, positive, can do attitude. I don’t know if I would have followed through on this otherwise. My daughters and I are so happy here with Steph and Jake. Plus we left our snugly dog Paisley behind and Sarah loves Rosco. We haven’t been this calm and peaceful in a couple of years. This is our first vacation together, just the 3 of us girls, and lying outside on the trampolines tonight looking at the stars with them both so happy is what I was hoping for. They are so excited to see what tomorrow brings after our first day of snorkeling, sailing, great food and a late night bio-luminescence swim. Thank you again. Peggy I am so happy that we were able to help this family and this text above made my xmas.
New Years Charter
We had such a great trip with this family. Awesome people! Comments from Dad: "The experience was fantastic for the family and me. Stephanie and Jake were extremely gracious hosts and it was a pleasure getting to know them and have them show us around the islands." "Stephanie is a gourmet as what she generated out of the galley was nothing short of fantastic" "They had their yacht ready for guests and plenty of provisions. We were never in want of anything. Interesting folks to talk with on a wide variety of topics. Captain Jake indulged my many questions with a wealth of knowledge regarding sailing and boat systems." We had the best time with this group! Can't wait for them to come back again!!
60th Birthday and 35th Anniversary
Steph & Jake, From the moment we met you guys, we knew it was going to be a fun adventurous, and mostly amazing trip. Thank you for sharing your home & your love of the water with us. Steph, you are an amazing hostess and cook. Your sweetness made me feel so at home. Jake, your knowledge of the sea and boating allowed us to have a better understanding and appreciation of the water. Your choice of moorings and travel allowed us to experience true sailing. The two of you are just totally the top with all you do! This made our vacation even more fun. We could not have planned a vacation like this without you guys. Amazing from start to finish. Love it! Thank you for a memorable 60th b-day and 35th anniversary.
Charter: Feb 11-16, 2020
Jake and Stephanie are the best host and hostess . Jake is an amazing captain, and Stephanie is an incredible chef. This trip is a trip to remember… The trip with Captain Jake and Stephanie was over the top. They are extremely professional and amazing. Each meal was delicious. They provided to everything we wanted. They know the area very well. Each location they took us to was perfect. The main point that really stands out is their knowledge of sailing. We hit a strong storm (45 knots). We never felt unsafe because they worked together as a team. I HIGHLY recommend this crew. You will be hearing from us again as our hope is to repeat this same trip next year and extending it for a full week. Overall this was a fabulous vacation.
Wonderful week with family
Dear Stephanie and Jake, Thank you so much for a wonderful week with my family. Your provided the perfect setting for lots of fun & laughter. Your food skills are nothing short of AMAZING. Jake, your easy going way of sailing us from island to island left me feeling completely at ease - we were in the hands of professionals (don't try this at home!) I will tell everyone I meet, "For anyone who is feeling a little cynical about the state of the world, come spend time with Jake & Stephanie!" Your warmth, your stories from your time in the islands & your love for one another inspire optimism & a full heart. I smiled all the way home to Charlotte! If you are ever in NC look me up, I'd love the chance to return the hospitality.
New First Mate
Thank you so much for a wonderful trip! We had such an amazing time! Orin was thrilled to be the "first mate" and help sail the boat and dingy. I know he'll be talking about you both for years to come! Stephanie- your cooking and hospitality was wonderful! Ayla and Orin both loved you. Which is saying a lot that Ayla would love to be with you, even around bed time! :) We will also miss Daisy and Roscoe... they were also great with the kids and awesome pups! Thank you again for everything! We hope to see you soon! Let us know if you are ever in the New England area!
Outstanding time!
We had an OUTSTANDING time exploring the USVI with you aboard Dreamcatcher! There were so many highlights it is difficult to choose a favorite! Snorkeling with turtles in Brewer's Bay was amazing! The natural beauty we experienced snorkeling around Buck Island and Christmas Cove was also incredible! This experience was the perfect blend of romantic and great for the kids. William and Maggie both had a blast swimming and paddle boarding. The food was incredible- hats off to Chef Stef! We intend to return and do more snarling and exploring with you! Hope to see you soon for more adventures! Jason, Elena, Margaret and William
Just what we needed!
Thank you so much for our amazing vacation! It was exactly what we needed!!! It was such a pleasure getting to know you and hear about your families and adventures. We so appreciate your kindness and thoughtfulness, from the amazing stops, food, games, video, Ohio State Game and who could forget the Gooey Butter Cake!! We feel like we have made some new friends and look forward to more adventures with you in the future! Thank you for treating us like royalty- if you are ever in Dallas - LOOK US UP- we would love to have you! All the best to you! Tom, Linda, Andrew & Alex
Merry Christmas!

We wish you years of success and lots of sea miles and smiles. Cheers to you and yours~ Lucas, Heather, Ashlyn, Kellyn, Braylon Captain Jake and Chef Stef, Thank ou for the amazing trip and amazing food. Braylon says "thank you for letting me taxi the pups!" We absolutely LOVED spending Christmas with you and Daisy and Roscoe! Snorkeling with your guidance and laughing over endless games of Uno was so much fun! We will miss you both and the pups so much. Have a wonderful New Years!! Love, Braylon, Ashlynn & Kellyn
The Most Fantastic Time
Family from Delaware, Jan 6-16, 2021: We had the most fantastic time aboard Dreamcatcher from the moment we stepped on until the day we had to leave! We were treated like royalty for the entire week. Jake was an amazing captain who was very willing to share his sailing experience with us and teach us how to prepare for day long sail across open ocean waters. Every one of Chef Stephanie's meals was not only elegantly plated but absolutely delicious! Our favorite was the surf and turf meal that she prepared early in our journey that included a lobster that they caught that morning on an early dive! I kid you not, the lobster was so big that it didn't fit entirely on the grill!!! The lobster fed 6 of us (all adults) with leftovers. She cooked the filet mignons perfectly to each of our tastes. Captain Jake, ever watchful over our entire family, made sure we were all safe and as one of our children swam a little too far from the boat, he went after her with the dinghy to bring her back! Both Capt Jake and Chef Steph were eager to teach us about life aboard a boat as we are looking to embark upon the same type of lifestyle as soon as we find the right boat for us! They allowed us to help put up the sails, pull the anchor and taught us how to catch a mooring ball. This was exactly what we were looking for during this vacation! But don't worry, we also found more than enough time to relax, take a nap, swim with sea turtles and rays, and enjoy a different cocktail prepared by Stephanie each night! We taught Jake and Steph how to play the card game "99" and they taught us how to play Mexican train dominoes! We waited a long time for this vacation and had to make several adjustments due to circumstances beyond out of control but this trip was well worth the wait and certainly worth every penny we paid! It was truly all inclusive and we wanted for nothing while we were aboard. I would charter aboard Dreamcatcher again in a heartbeat.

I love communicating to people how much they mean to me through food.” While her food is superb, she is also an excellent first mate, delightful hostess and patient teacher for those who need a bit of instruction with the water toys and gear.

March 1-6, 2019 - Totally Pampered!
We have been pampered in the best way! Enough activity to keep us entertained as well as enough down time so we go home rested! Stephanie is a wonderful cool and Jake was willing to take us wherever we wanted to go! - Charlotte Thank you for being a part of our lives. This vacation was very much a coming home. Leaving will mark the beginning of coming back. Charlotte and Joe
March 16-22, 2019 - Creating memories with people we love!
A trip filled with adventure, games, delicious meals, hiking, swimming, yoga, wine, booze, laughs, sand, salt, stories, turtles, octopus, goats, birds, crabs and dogs. (The best island dogs- Daisy and Roscoe). Dingy rides, sun bathing, paddle boarding, art making, reading, music (introducing you to Rob Ricardo) back flips, salt water baths, and most of all creating memories with people we love. Thank you for hosting Lexi, Aaron, Jonah and I. Until next time, Sarah. Thank you Stake and Jeff for providing this lovely trip for me and my fam. I had such a wonderful time exploring beaches, roaming around town and playing games with you guys! I wouldn’t want to spend my spring break and other way (duh). I never want to leave! But unfortunately everything good must come to and end. Love you guys both, Lexi
April 7-17, 2019 - Loved Every Minute of It!
We absolutely loved every minute of our vacation and stay with the two of you! Thank you Jake for sharing your special birthday week with us! Big 50!! That lobster dinner was one of the best I’ve ever eaten. We are sad we no longer have you in the states but are so excited to be a part of your new adventure! Thank you for inviting us into your home and taking such good care of us while we were here. Can’t wait to start planning our next trip! Cassandra, Robert and Blakleigh
April 18-22, 2019 - This is what Happiness Looks Like!
Capt. Jake & Stephanie, This morning, Jonathas showed me a video he took while I was sleeping. It was a solid two minutes of hearty, motor (or engine) like snoring. Although I probably need a C-Pap now, I have not been this rested in so long. I was wondering if it were the fresh air, or the warmth of your company, or the blue of the ocean I have no vocabulary for, a gentle rock of Dreamcatcher’s hull. Or all of them. Now that I’ve waxed poetic, I’d like to thank you for opening your life to us and giving us a glimpse at what happiness looks like. We hope to be back, snore a little bit more, live a bit more. Yours Miles & Jonathas
June 6-12, 2019 - Food for the Soul!
Dear Jake & Stephanie & Roscoe & Daisy, First of all... your couple name of course should be “steaks”. Just thought of that now, lol. If I didn’t start this letter off with a corny joke, it wouldn’t be me now would it? Right now I’m sitting in the cockpit of Dreamcatcher reflecting on exactly how many things I’d like to thank you for from this week. To start with, I knew I would love you guys the first night we piled in the dingy and headed to Lagoonies... laughing at each other through torrential downpour of rain. Then there was the buffoon heckling Jakes body language, and the lovely French woman declaring, “he’s a barbarian!!” Then Martin played songs by Jack Johnson and we all quietly sang along as we watched the locals mingle and dance in the muggy night. One can’t usually enter a space like that with as much chameleon grace as a first timer to a new country... Thank you for being our guides and making this so much deeper than a tourist experience. We loved listening to the stories you readily shared - about truth or dare and lessons learned and pranks played... the love you have for your kids is evident, touching and heartwarming. Stephanie made fantastic foods, gave me honest and perspective filled advice on boat life and always made us feel as if we really belonged here. Thank you. We loved that you welcomed us to a heart dinner and rousing game of dominoes while Patrick loudly complained about the beach music. Then there was the all you can eat candy buffet Jake bestowed upon us or last night here where he patiently listened to us tell a rambling array of stories from our own journeys. (And thank you Jake for listening with compassion and for sharing the perspective you’ve gained from your experience to give me a compass in my concern for my better that will always mean so much to me.) Em and I have the opportunity a few nights before we left to sit on the trampolines and talk about so many things that had been on lockdown since the whirlwind of our recent move... things like astronomy and travel, friendship, spirituality and reminiscing about our past enough to recognize new areas of our own growth... food for the soul. The lapping water and retired volcanoes dotted through with gentle lights created by what I call a “moment made eternity” something that will always stay with me no matter where I go. You see, for years now, I’ve had a distant link in my mind between the view of masts disappearing into the night sky and the word “home”. I hope that someday this will be literal as well as spiritual, but either way... I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your mast- and your home with me. Much love to you both and to the boat dogs... Lydia and Em
22-25 December, 2019 - Last Minute Christmas Charter
Note from Broker and client: I am very happy we could actually book Peggy on this charter and with Steph, Jake and the pups, this was a true perfect match: Lela, I just wanted to say thank you for approaching my last minute, challenging situation with such a wonderful, positive, can do attitude. I don’t know if I would have followed through on this otherwise. My daughters and I are so happy here with Steph and Jake. Plus we left our snugly dog Paisley behind and Sarah loves Rosco. We haven’t been this calm and peaceful in a couple of years. This is our first vacation together, just the 3 of us girls, and lying outside on the trampolines tonight looking at the stars with them both so happy is what I was hoping for. They are so excited to see what tomorrow brings after our first day of snorkeling, sailing, great food and a late night bio-luminescence swim. Thank you again. Peggy I am so happy that we were able to help this family and this text above made my xmas.
New Years Charter
We had such a great trip with this family. Awesome people! Comments from Dad: "The experience was fantastic for the family and me. Stephanie and Jake were extremely gracious hosts and it was a pleasure getting to know them and have them show us around the islands." "Stephanie is a gourmet as what she generated out of the galley was nothing short of fantastic" "They had their yacht ready for guests and plenty of provisions. We were never in want of anything. Interesting folks to talk with on a wide variety of topics. Captain Jake indulged my many questions with a wealth of knowledge regarding sailing and boat systems." We had the best time with this group! Can't wait for them to come back again!!
60th Birthday and 35th Anniversary
Steph & Jake, From the moment we met you guys, we knew it was going to be a fun adventurous, and mostly amazing trip. Thank you for sharing your home & your love of the water with us. Steph, you are an amazing hostess and cook. Your sweetness made me feel so at home. Jake, your knowledge of the sea and boating allowed us to have a better understanding and appreciation of the water. Your choice of moorings and travel allowed us to experience true sailing. The two of you are just totally the top with all you do! This made our vacation even more fun. We could not have planned a vacation like this without you guys. Amazing from start to finish. Love it! Thank you for a memorable 60th b-day and 35th anniversary.
Charter: Feb 11-16, 2020
Jake and Stephanie are the best host and hostess . Jake is an amazing captain, and Stephanie is an incredible chef. This trip is a trip to remember… The trip with Captain Jake and Stephanie was over the top. They are extremely professional and amazing. Each meal was delicious. They provided to everything we wanted. They know the area very well. Each location they took us to was perfect. The main point that really stands out is their knowledge of sailing. We hit a strong storm (45 knots). We never felt unsafe because they worked together as a team. I HIGHLY recommend this crew. You will be hearing from us again as our hope is to repeat this same trip next year and extending it for a full week. Overall this was a fabulous vacation.
Wonderful week with family
Dear Stephanie and Jake, Thank you so much for a wonderful week with my family. Your provided the perfect setting for lots of fun & laughter. Your food skills are nothing short of AMAZING. Jake, your easy going way of sailing us from island to island left me feeling completely at ease - we were in the hands of professionals (don't try this at home!) I will tell everyone I meet, "For anyone who is feeling a little cynical about the state of the world, come spend time with Jake & Stephanie!" Your warmth, your stories from your time in the islands & your love for one another inspire optimism & a full heart. I smiled all the way home to Charlotte! If you are ever in NC look me up, I'd love the chance to return the hospitality.
New First Mate
Thank you so much for a wonderful trip! We had such an amazing time! Orin was thrilled to be the "first mate" and help sail the boat and dingy. I know he'll be talking about you both for years to come! Stephanie- your cooking and hospitality was wonderful! Ayla and Orin both loved you. Which is saying a lot that Ayla would love to be with you, even around bed time! :) We will also miss Daisy and Roscoe... they were also great with the kids and awesome pups! Thank you again for everything! We hope to see you soon! Let us know if you are ever in the New England area!
Outstanding time!
We had an OUTSTANDING time exploring the USVI with you aboard Dreamcatcher! There were so many highlights it is difficult to choose a favorite! Snorkeling with turtles in Brewer's Bay was amazing! The natural beauty we experienced snorkeling around Buck Island and Christmas Cove was also incredible! This experience was the perfect blend of romantic and great for the kids. William and Maggie both had a blast swimming and paddle boarding. The food was incredible- hats off to Chef Stef! We intend to return and do more snarling and exploring with you! Hope to see you soon for more adventures! Jason, Elena, Margaret and William
Just what we needed!
Thank you so much for our amazing vacation! It was exactly what we needed!!! It was such a pleasure getting to know you and hear about your families and adventures. We so appreciate your kindness and thoughtfulness, from the amazing stops, food, games, video, Ohio State Game and who could forget the Gooey Butter Cake!! We feel like we have made some new friends and look forward to more adventures with you in the future! Thank you for treating us like royalty- if you are ever in Dallas - LOOK US UP- we would love to have you! All the best to you! Tom, Linda, Andrew & Alex

Have a wonderful New Years!! Love, Braylon, Ashlynn & Kellyn
The Most Fantastic Time
Family from Delaware, Jan 6-16, 2021: We had the most fantastic time aboard Dreamcatcher from the moment we stepped on until the day we had to leave! We were treated like royalty for the entire week. Jake was an amazing captain who was very willing to share his sailing experience with us and teach us how to prepare for day long sail across open ocean waters. Every one of Chef Stephanie's meals was not only elegantly plated but absolutely delicious! Our favorite was the surf and turf meal that she prepared early in our journey that included a lobster that they caught that morning on an early dive! I kid you not, the lobster was so big that it didn't fit entirely on the grill!!! The lobster fed 6 of us (all adults) with leftovers. She cooked the filet mignons perfectly to each of our tastes. Captain Jake, ever watchful over our entire family, made sure we were all safe and as one of our children swam a little too far from the boat, he went after her with the dinghy to bring her back! Both Capt Jake and Chef Steph were eager to teach us about life aboard a boat as we are looking to embark upon the same type of lifestyle as soon as we find the right boat for us! They allowed us to help put up the sails, pull the anchor and taught us how to catch a mooring ball. This was exactly what we were looking for during this vacation! But don't worry, we also found more than enough time to relax, take a nap, swim with sea turtles and rays, and enjoy a different cocktail prepared by Stephanie each night! We taught Jake and Steph how to play the card game "99" and they taught us how to play Mexican train dominoes! We waited a long time for this vacation and had to make several adjustments due to circumstances beyond out of control but this trip was well worth the wait and certainly worth every penny we paid! It was truly all inclusive and we wanted for nothing while we were aboard. I would charter aboard Dreamcatcher again in a heartbeat.
