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!

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

My husband and I went on a sunset sail with Captain Octavio and had the most delightful time!! Octavio was funny, informative and all around charming! Next time we are in the area, we will look him up to take another cruise!

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.
