Que pasa? Captain Octavio is what's happening in Bradenton Beach! His sails in the Bay or the Gulf are not to be missed when you're in this part of the world. Where can you go sailing - on a real sailboat - for 3 hours and be entertained by the semi-amazing Cap'n O for 50 bucks? Only here. Just hope... More

We joined Capt Octavio once again for a Sailing Adventure and it was just that. It was a beautiful day so we went out into the gulf. There was little wind so instead of sailing we swam and kayaked in the gulf. The conditions were calm and we saw a few Dolphins. What a great trip.

We met Octavio at the pier and were unsure if we would be able to sail due to unstudied weather earlier in the day. He said we would be fine but would not be able to take us out in the gulf. We decided to go out anyway and it was more than worth it. He made his boat your... More

Octavio is the perfect host and made the whole experience just wonderful. He was so accommodating to our parties needs. The beer was flowing and the music was softly playing out over the gulf. We headed out from Bradenton historic fishing pier and into the gulf at the top of longboat key. We watched our amazing sunset and felt so... More

Octavio was a wonderful host - we went out into the Gulf for a bit, then came back to the intercoastal for smoother waters. The perfect way to see another side to the island and Longboat Key. I can't think of a better way to spend an afternoon! Thank you Octavio for a relaxing trip!

Great experience for my first time on a sailboat. Octavio was just wonderful! Very knowledgeable & experienced with wonderful stories. We arrived early for our 10am departure and he encouraged us to get on the boat early and make ourselves comfortable. He provided beverages. He also whipped up a tasty bite to eat. This was an nice surprise. Will definitely... More

The boat has seen a lot of seas but that just proves what an experienced Captain you have in charge of the vessel. Great Day in the sun and wind with Captain Octavio and First Mate Taylor. Thanks from your new Canadian friends - hope we can do it again.

We called and spoke to O twice to confirm our reservation. Another couple was joining us, sounds great! We were meeting him at the Pier at 5:30pm. We planned our day around this trip, left the beach early, ate dinner early, packed wine, snacks, perfect weather etc. We were there about 5:10pm because we didn't know exactly what we were... More

Had a fun time. Took our daughter and son in law out. The drinks were cold and the sun was warm. Not much wind but still lots of fun. Octavio made us feel very comfortable. We saw lots of dolphins swimming near the boat. Highly recommend.
