Our family with two older teenage daughters took the afternoon sailing tour this afternoon with Captain Jethro and Jorge. A little bit of sailing is one of the things we most look forward to on any sea side vacation, and today’s trip did not disappoint! With delicious snacks, a

The crew was fun and attentive. They came around often asking what they could get each of us and took the time to talk to everyone and acted like they were having fun also. It's nice to see that. They were truly a great group. The snorkeling site, food, and drinks were also

We went on the afternoon catamaran trip. We found them easily on the beach and hung out for the morning enjoying the beach. When I checked in, they tried to overcharge me, thankfully I had my online reservations with me. It took a bit of back and forth and phone calls for the

First of all, on behalf of all the crew members at Octopus we sincerely apologize that you experienced this. All data should be known to our crew in the beach hut. We will certainly address them on this. We are happy to hear that despite this, you had a great afternoon trip. It is true that the sea near the shipwreck has a strong current. But as you indicate when you are a decent swimmer, it is certainly possible to snorkel at the shipwreck with or without life jacket. Thank you for complimenting our crew on board. Food is very personal and we try to make everyone happy. Thank you for your review and we hope to welcome you again at the Octopus!
