With another couple, experienced sailors, which we aren't, we booked a 3 hour trip into the gulf with Capt. Octavio. The combination of fair weather, light winds, generous refreshments and a story-telling commander made for a most enjoyable cruise. A most memorable trip we'll look forward to doing again.

My husband and I had a great afternoon with Captain Octavio! He clearly loves sailing and spending time with others. Great story teller and delightful host! The views and dolphin sightings made our trip complete.

My husband and I went on a sunset sail with Captain Octavio and had the most delightful time!! Octavio was funny, informative and all around charming! Next time we are in the area, we will look him up to take another cruise!

My husband, daughter and I had a fantastic time sailing with Octavio this afternoon. He was engaging, informed, always helpful and cheerful, and made sure that we had a positive experience, including ensuring that we saw the best views of the sunset. Fabulous time!!! We'll do it again! He also recommended a restaurant -- Blue Marlin -- to go to... More

My wife and I had a great time sailing with Anna Maria Sailing Adventures. Capt Octavio is relaxed, fun and interesting, but also an experienced sailor who is more aware of conditions than he appears to let on. We were lucky enough to have comfortable south winds strong enough to move the boat nicely into the gulf at about 6... More

Our daughter and her fiance were visiting with us for a week over the holidays and we had the idea to book this sailing trip on new year's eve. It was easy to book and Octavio showed up right on time. Octavio explained the safety procedures and brought on ice and rum and coke and beer and water. Pulling out... More

My mom, step dad, and I went out on Octavio's sailboat today after being recommended to him through a family friend. They loved him so we figured we'd give his sailboat a try! We were extremely impressed with the entire trip. Octavio exhibited hospitality towards us, providing us with water, soda, rum, etc. He was filled with unbelievably funny stories,... More

Octavio was great! He is so easy to talk to and so experienced. You can tell he has done this for a long time. Very fun and affordable. I would recommend this experience to anyone visiting the island. Worth every penny.

This is the third time we have sailed with Captain Octavio and each one has been a delight. Sunset cruise is magical, but the day time cruise is just as special. Having the dolphins cruise right under the boat was such a treat, who needs a dolphin tour. The sailing was top notch but the captain made it special. Always... More

My husband and I went out on a sunset sail tonight with Octavio and we couldn't have had a better time. It was our first time on a boat, and Octavio made us feel right at home. He's extremely friendly and has an amazing sense of humor. While my husband and I were at the front of the boat, Octavio... More
