I bid and won a sail for 2 at a charity auction. I upgraded it to a sail for 4 so our whole family could go and gave it to my husband for his birthday. The day of our sail was drizzly and gray, but since we had brought rain attire, we set out anyway. We stopped at Basswood island... More

Captain Marley is a skilled sailor and showed us that when my hat blew off my head and into the water. He easily came about and got my hat in seconds. We did a four hour tour on a beautiful sunny warm day. We were entertained by Captain Marley's many stories on history of the area and recent events. He... More

I have to thank Dreamcatchers for getting us on a boat at the last minute as we had spur of the moment idea to head to Bayfield for the day. The took our cell and arranged a 2:30 trip for us on short notice and so I commend them for this. We sailed on the Egret which is a very... More

Great +4 hour day on the water with Jen as our truly terrific captain. The whole day was a delight. Lying on the bow with the sound of the wind in the sails and the waves lapping made me the most relaxed I have been in years. Everyone associated with Dreamcatcher was friendly, helpful, and responsive. We will be back,... More

Upon arriving in Bayfield, WI yesterday, the last thing on our mind was to hire a private sailing charter. But the couple we were with insisted it would be a great idea, so we reluctantly agreed. We bought a day trip with Dreamcatcher Sailing and soon were introduced to our Captain John Mayers. Our craft was a 36' beauty named... More

We went on the sea caves tour 9/21/13 with Captain Jenn. Despite a lack of wind to sail, we had a marvelous time. Just laying in the sun on the bow while cruising to the caves made for a lovely time. The great thing about no wind was that we were able explore the caves inside and out via the... More

We took the 2 1/2 hour afternoon sail with Captain Jim. No one else had booked so we were the only 2 passengers on the 33' sailboat. It was glorious! Sea Captain Jim was an excellent captain - made the experience a terrific one. We had interesting conversations, some great laughs and an excellent experience. He sensed I was a... More

This is a must do for seeing the Lake Superior, Apostle Islands caves. We also went kayaking to the caves yesterday, which we loved too. But today's trip on the 34 foot Esprit sailboat with Captain Todd was fantastic. We enjoyed today even more than kayaking. This was in part because of superior weather. But Todd launched the dinghy and... More
