This was one of the highlights of our vacation. The Captain was knowledgeable and entertaining. My son got to drive the boat, we stopped to watch dolphins, perfect day on the water.

He has also brought on an apprentice, Tara, who is so sweet and cares for everyone on the boat along with Octavio. He was so good with my... More

We were told to meet Octavio at the Coquina boat ramp at 10:30 am. We waited until 11:00 am. I then traveled to the Bridge Street pier where the trips normally leave from (they just begun renovating the pier). I saw his boat out in the water. I thought maybe I went to the wrong location. I walked towards one... More

Wow! If you're looking for a memorable day while staying on Anna Maria Island, Holmes Beach or Bradenton Beach...sail with Captain Octavio. Sailing along the sparkling waters of the gulf while watching jumping dolphins so close that you can practically reach out and touch them...it doesn't get better than that! You can tell that Captain Octavio knows these waters inside... More

We had such a great time on a Friday evening sunset cruise with Captain Octavio! He is very laid-back and wants to make sure everyone has a good time. There is nothing rehearsed or scripted about this cruise. We got on as strangers but got off feeling like friends with everyone on the boat!! This is a must when visiting... More

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
