We've been going to Aruba 20+ years. Octopus Sailing Charters has always been on our list of things to do each time we go to Aruba. We like the Octopus because it's not over crowded and Jethro and his crew are awesome!

We had 4 in our group the boat was very easy sail so we could sit and converse enjoying the sunset & scenery. All other groups had their space too. It was beautiful experience in Aruba. Crew was very cool, accomidating & handsome from Holland.

Amazing trip with nice guys. We did the champagne brunch. Plenty of time to snorkel and see many fish.

We loved our sunset cruise. The staff were professional and a lot of fun. We really enjoyed the fact that its a smaller boat so we weren't part of a large crowd. I highly recommend it. Great value for the money.

The crew was so friendly and accommodating. A really big plus is that they take no more than 24 passengers. No over crowding. Well worth the money. Some food provided and some good tropical drinks just top it off .

Had a good time on the brunch sail. The crew was very attentive. Had banana bread first thing once on the boat with mimosas. After snorkeling they serve a light lunch with fruit and drinks.

A beautiful, relaxing sunset sail. We like the smaller sailboat. Very personal treatment. If you want to sail with a smaller group this is the boat for you. We met another fascinating couple on this sail boat. It is not one of the larger party...More
