This is a great little adventure. The crew is wonderful and so easy to talk to. Capt. Jethro has some good stories. The sail is great snorkeling is nice. The food is great for this type of trip. Highly recommended for a nice leisurely day out on the water.

For 18 years we have visited Aruba for week 19 and 20 and we have been going on the Octopus morning sail and snorkling and love it. It is the best deal on the island and Jethro and his crew are the best!!! This year we tried his sunset sail and we were not disappointed. We had such a great... More

We had the the best time with Captain Jethro, Jeff and the rest of the crew. They were fantastic!!! We felt like we were hanging out with friends and had great conversations with the captain and his crew, as well as, having an amazing time snorkeling and enjoying the cruise. Why pay more to go out on a catamaran with... More

Had a wonderful excursion with Captain Jethro and his excellent crew. The snorkeling was fantastic. The highlight iwas the passion this team has for what they do and the respect they show for the beautiful sea life they so willingly shared with us. Enjoyed the light meal as well. Do remember to bring extra sunblock. Definitely will do this again.

Captain Jethro and his assistant were very kind and informative. Breakfast and lunch were good and the drinks were, of course, great. I would recommend Octopus Sailing Charters to anyone. Great value and personal attention.

A group of 10 of us took this excursion when in Aruba..Jethro did lots of yelling at his one man crew, which made us all feel uneasy..Not very good life jackets and we didn't feel if someone had trouble in the water there wasn't anyone that could handle it. The bread, lunch and drinks were the highlight of the trip...I... More

My husband and I signed up for the 1/2 Day Champagne Brunch and had a great time with Jethro and his crew. They took us to the Antilla Wreck which was a really cook experience, and then after brought us over to the Boca Catalina Beach area to snorkel. Of the 20 people taking the trip, about half of the...
