Captain Bud

Captain/Chef Mir

Captain Mir (short for Miriam) is a US Coast Guard licensed 25-ton Captain with several ASA certifications. She is also a PADI Master Scuba Diving Instructor, and 5th degree blackbelt. Mir has worked for the Federal government on and off since 1984 and is currently counting down the final months until her retirement. Passionate about the ocean and the creatures that thrive on it, Mir enjoys being First Mate more than Captain as this gives her time to interact with the guests and discuss local history and the impact we have on our water environment. As an ordained independent officiant, and wedding planner, Mir is available to officiate your wedding and host your onboard reception. Her goal is to ensure you walk away with positive memories of your experience on Follow That Dream.
