Great experience for my first time on a sailboat. Octavio was just wonderful! Very knowledgeable & experienced with wonderful stories. We arrived early for our 10am departure and he encouraged us to get on the boat early and make ourselves comfortable. He provided beverages. He also whipped up a tasty bite to eat. This was an nice surprise. Will definitely... More

The boat has seen a lot of seas but that just proves what an experienced Captain you have in charge of the vessel. Great Day in the sun and wind with Captain Octavio and First Mate Taylor. Thanks from your new Canadian friends - hope we can do it again.

We called and spoke to O twice to confirm our reservation. Another couple was joining us, sounds great! We were meeting him at the Pier at 5:30pm. We planned our day around this trip, left the beach early, ate dinner early, packed wine, snacks, perfect weather etc. We were there about 5:10pm because we didn't know exactly what we were... More

Had a fun time. Took our daughter and son in law out. The drinks were cold and the sun was warm. Not much wind but still lots of fun. Octavio made us feel very comfortable. We saw lots of dolphins swimming near the boat. Highly recommend.

Beautiful day for sailing around Anna Maria Island. sailboat was large enough for 7 of us to be comfortable. My 6 year old twins had a blast and loved sailing. The boat had lots of character as did Octavio, who was sooo much fun! Let us all sail the boat and made piña coladas. Highly recommend! Fun was had by... More

We had some friends visiting from up north so we thought we'd do something special with them. We went on the sunset cruise. There were 5 of us including my 8 year old son. My son had the chance to steer the boat. We had such a fun & relaxing time. Captain Octavio knew the waters well, the beer, rum... More

This is only my second time going out with octavio, but I won't go to anyone else. He is full of stories and makes you feel very comfortable on his boat. He makes 5 hours feel like 1. The time just flys by with him. Highly recommend anyone who wants to go sailing, to go with him.

We had such a wonderful time on our sailing trip with Capt. Octavio. He was informative and entertaining and shared many sailing tips that we will use sailing our own sailboat. He was a perfect host as well. We were fortunate to see several dolphins in the bay. It was by far the best day of our vacation and we... More
