We have gone out sailing with Octavio on two occasions so far and we've had a great time.If you need to find an "island getaway " from your island getaway, then your due for a trip with Captain Ocatavio on the "Zefiro"!!!

My husband and I went on the sunset sail. The Captain, Octavio was very friendly and entertaining to say the least. He was very easy to converse with and often made us laugh. He went out of his way to make us feel comfortable, he even offered me a blanket. The sunset was amazing, and got alot of beautiful pics.... More

My husband and I were looking for a romantic sailing experience for our last night on our honeymoon. We were warmly welcomed by our captain Octavio. He went out of his way to make us feel comfortable. Offering us drinks and the best seats on the boat. He made us feel like we were the only ones on the boat.... More

I wanted to plan something special for my parents as a Christmas gift to use while they were on Anna Maria Island, a sunset sail seemed like the perfect thing. We made arrangements with octavio- he was laid back (allowing flexibility for weather ect), yet reserved our space and remembered our conversation when we arrived. We decided to go out... More

My trip to Anna Maria Island was necessitated by a true desire to "escape" ... I was given an all expense paid trip to Play Del Carmen, Mexico for attaining "President's Club" standing in my office-- however, I chose to forego it with the intent of being solo on this lovely island... While the weather could have been warmer, the... More

Spent most of a beautiful sunny day with Captain Octavio and three fellow travelers. Fantastic voyage out to the Gulf and around an island. Octavio was funny, informative, and just an all around nice guy. It was so very relaxing. Octavio was very hospitable in offering beer, cuba libre's, and sodas throughout the day. The day spent on his boat... More

We had the best time! Captain let my fiance drive the boat. Another couple joined us on our 3 hour trip, and we had a great time! Boat could be a little cleaner (hense the score of 4)- but you won't get better ride!

My family (grandpa, parents, sister, and I) were looking for something to do while we were vacationing down in Florida. We found this, read the reviews and decided to try it. We were really glad we did because it was an AMAZING experience for us all. He let us steer the boat, even through the drawbridge! He let us choose... More

Our family set sail on a cloudy day, but that didn't ruin our trip. Captain Octavio was hysterical and kept us entertained the entire time making sure we all enjoyed ourselves. He let my girls steer the boat most of the trip even under the drawbridge. We saw dolphins and finally the sun came out! We plan to take one... More

We rode aboard Capt. Octavio's boat on our last vacation. It was everything the reviews say it will be!!. He is a good ol' boy who likes to take other good ol' boys out for a jaunt around the gulf to look at beautiful houses while drinking rum and coke! He told GREAT stories and steered with his bare feet.... More
