Never been on a sailboat before, it was wonderful! Captain Octavio is so funny and inviting. We enjoyed it and would do it again the next time we visit!

Octavio was so friendly and accommodating. We called him just one day prior to deciding we would like to find a way to spend time out in the beautiful Gulf. He was very knowledgable, respectful and had reasonable rates. Octavio is also well known on the Island which maden us even more comfortable since my 23 yr old daughter and myself were traveling alone. We both had a great time and felt right at home. From the start there was no pressure trying to sell us on the trip. We had searched others and felt they were more concerned with payment over the phone seeming we were just another spot to fill. It was great just taking trip without a "minimum" group trip.We could not have made a better choice, what a wonderful experience as well as a nice Captian.

Our family recently took a private morning charter with Captain Octavio and we LOVED it!! To reiterate what every other reviewer has already said, he is friendly, funny, capable, courteous, and very accommodating. We were a group of six (our immediate family plus our son's new fiance). Two members of our group got a bit seasick out in the Gulf and Captain Octavio quickly returned us to the calmer waters of the bay thereby salvaging our trip. As we sailed along, he regaled us with story after story ... and we enjoyed every single one of them. It just couldn't have been any nicer and was the perfect way to spend 3-4 hours while visiting Anna Maria. If you are reading this review ... and considering taking this cruise ... we give it two enthusiastic THUMBS UP!! Thank you, Octavio ... and thank you to my fellow Trip Advisor reviewers who steered me in his direction!!
