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

This was our second sunset cruise with Octavio. As expected, it was a great adventure. He is a wonderful host. The wind wasn't right for the sails, but that didn't stop us from having a great time. The sunset was beautiful. This is on our yearly list of things to do on vacation. Highly recommend Anna Maria Sailing Adventures if... More

We went to Long Boat/Anna Maria for years and always rented a boat. Two years ago we found out about Octavio's sail boat excursion. Octavio now part of the "extended family" and a must everytime we go. Reason Octavio's sails are so fun is because he loves sailing, loves people, and loves life! We like sunset cruise the best. 3...

This is a must do when friends and family come into town and its always the highlight of their stay. Our trip was filled with lots of laughs, singing, funny stories and wind in the hair. My friend said it was the best part of her weekend. This is one of many trips I have had with Capt. Octavio and... More

We had a fabulous time today sailing with Octavio. This will be the fifth year we have taken a trip with him and as always he kept us entertained with his knowledge and humour. We sailed, saw dolphins and swam in the gulf and had lots of laughs. We also enjoyed meeting our fellow passengers and sharing a few beers.... More

Captain Octavio was great! He loves what he does! He provides beer and soft drinks. Very sociable and fun to talk to. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing, laid back sailing outing. Plan on coming back again!

Captain Octavio is a wonderful host (has water, soda, beer - free of charge) & an expert sailor! Kids each got to take turns at the helm & loved it! The most amazing sunset!

Awesome experience! After we left the pier a storm formed but Captain Octavio saved the day! He sailed around the storm and we got to watch nature perform one of the best shows of rain, lighting, sunset, color of blues, clouds and we (in the sail boat and in the ocean) barely got any rain. Captain Octavio is one cool... More
