You will LOVE it! we got it three times during the week. You can swim in the water, watch the sunset, get wet and wild, dance, sing, be a Skipper, etc. No limits of pleasure with Capitan Octavio.

This was an experience! Octavio says he stole a gun boat from Cuba and steered it to America 20 years ago. He brought along his girlfriend, his girlfriend's friend, and an airplane pilot who ultimately ended up steering the boat most of the time and...More

Octavio is one of the easiest going captains one could possibly meet. The trip was more like traveling with friends than a paid charter. The trip was a no frills trip. and the sailboat wasn't spit and polish but the trip was very well priced,...More

Brought our 3 "tweens" on cruise with Octavio- all 3 said it was the highlight of their trip! He is so laid back and had lots of great stories. Overall we highly recommend this activity!

Had a wonderful relaxing evening for the sunset cruise. Octavio is the best. Lots of lively conversation and great sailing.

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...More

We are coming to FL as a 50th anniversary family june 10-17. There are 11 of us in all. Is there a sunset cruise or a dolphin cruise for that many???

Hi- I doubt that Octavio's boat would handle more than 6 at a time, but there are many other cruises in the area. Octavio was great for two couples.
We are going to be staying on Anna Maria Island from 11/10-11/12. Is there a sunset cruise available? If so, what is the cost?
