My family and I took the Sunset Cruise. Captain Octavio went out of his way to make our trip fun, relaxing and even educational. The Captain is one of those Florida characters that you read about and sadly, rarely encounter anymore. He was full of great local information, funny stories and has an interesting past. Captain Octavio had the boat... More

We really enjoyed our sail boat cruise with Octavio. He was so easy going, very entertaining and we enjoyed our conversations. The water and weather were beautiful; however, not enough wind for sailing even though we tried a couple of times. I was hoping to see other areas of the coast line aside from Anna Maria Island or maybe more... More

My husband and I booked a sailing trip with Octavio to celebrate our Anniversary. Turned out to be just the two of us and we had a great time. He's very down to earth, entertaining and we really enjoyed it. I'd recommend sailing with him to any of my family & friends, we can't wait to do it again. He... More

I heard so many good things about Octavio from my cousin who sails with him every time he visits Anna Maria. So when we all visited together, I couldn't wait to go on this adventure. We had such a wonderful time with Octavio on his sail boat!! He is so funny; I hadn't laughed so much in a long time.... More

Captain Octavio is friendly and warm and kind. He allowed my sixteen year old grandson to steer the boat for awhile. The photos of that will make lifetime memories. Octavio goes out of his way to make people feel relaxed and forget about everything, but island time. If you miss the sunset cruise, you have missed a great experience. My... More

We had an amazing time with Octavio on the boat! One word, hospitality, Octavio makes u feel like his boat is your boat. You also can't beat the price! On the trip, your wish is his command. You would be crazy to go out with anyone else on Anna Maria Island! Thanks for the great time Octavio!

He let me drive the boat after I told him I never seen the ocean before. Very fun and laid back telling us stories. We saw dolphins and sharks. Him and his boat were the highlight of our trip. Well worth the time and money.

Captain Octavio was superb! The kids enjoyed it very much, and even took the wheel at times. To be able to see Anna Maria Island along with Longboat Key was a real treat. There is no doubt we will sail again with Anna Maria Sailing Adventures. Octavio is extremely accomodating, and knows the weather and the waves so well, he... More

We sailed with Octavio a week ago today and it was a great experience. I will say you should call to schedule, I tried emailing twice and never received a response. It's clear he doesn't check the email. But we called on Monday morning and scheduled for Tuesday. When my husband spoke with him he said 3 others would be... More

I called and scheduled with the Captain the day before for the sunset cruise and informed him I was traveling alone. Capt. Utrera arrived on time. He was there alone and informed me that the other party had canceled on him about 45 minutes prior to our cruise and he did not have the heart to cancel on me. I'll... More
