Beautiful catamaran with great staff. The food and drink was more than good. Sandwiches were very tasty. Great benefit small group of people on the catamaran, this is something personal. The price to deal with octopus is low, as is possible for everyone to experience this amazing experience.

My wife and I loved the Octopus sunset sail! We arrived at the Pelican Pier on Palm Beach just after 4:30pm and met Jethro - our kind captain. We taxied out to the Octopus on a small boat and relaxed near the front. The sail was delightful; windy enough to keep you cool, slow and relaxing too. The "open bar"... More

Great sunset sail with friends. Smooth sail on a very windy day. Price for sail was a bargain. Only complaint: drinks were awful and snacks offered less than desirable.

My husband and I took a morning sail on the Octopus in May 2016. We really enjoyed our cruise and the crew was wonderful. The experience was romantic, fun and safe. This was a more relaxed cruise than some of the party boats we saw on the water, which made the experience even more enjoyable. We were able to snorkel,... More

This was a smaller catamaran compared to a lot of other ones I've seen. Not many people which was great because you're able to interact with everyone and it was just more personal to me. They provided lunch and breakfast which came with mimosas. If I return to Aruba I will go with octopus again.

Met at Palm beach at 8:30 for a 9:00 champagne brunch snorkel,trip. Made the reservations online directly with Jethro. Cash only- paid at the time of departure. The boat is an older tri-hull. There was seating for about - no real space to move around. Got a seat and stayed put. Mimosas and pound cake were offered. The first stop... More

We sailed with Jethro and Jeff on the Octopus 4 years ago during a cruise stop in Aruba. This year our cruise stopped there again and we immediately contacted Jethro to see if he had room for our party of 6 to go snorkeling again. You need to take either a public bus or taxi to the Holiday Inn and... More

We made two stops to snorkel and had lunch on board. The lunch was very good and the drinks (alcoholic or non were included). What is so nice... More

We took the morning two stop sail on this pure sailing trimaran. No power other than wind. Boat shows its age but it works. Capt. the real thing.

Jethro and his two mates made this a lot of fun, and we appreciated that this was a small boat (22 max passengers), rather than one of the larger party boats. Arrived at one spot a good half hour before others showed up, and had more time for snorkeling there. Will plan another afternoon on the Octopus next time we're... More
