I had nothing short of an amazing time during my time aboard the vivid dreams! Capitan John and Greg were hilarious, informative and so accommodating to my wild crew! I had about 12 first time boaters aboard and they truly let us enjoy and have the best time possible. S/O to our Captains who also sailed us on an absolutely breathtaking route. I will absolutely be back!
