Just came back from a very pleasant afternoon on the octopus. Great day sailing as there is no motor. The snorkeling was great and the crew very attentive. The boat is not new but the experience is well worth it. I would recommend it for anyone.

Because there were only six people on our Sunset Cruise, we had a chance to personally talk with the captain and crew. This is the quality I always hope for on a tour and it made the cruise all that more enjoyable. Octopus is one of the smaller tour operators on the island but I don't see how you could... More

This has always been one of my favorite things to do in Aruba . Jethro was so much fun. This year we found a new crew and wondered if the experience would be the same. It was great . Still a small cruise with a great staff. Drinks and food were perfect and once again a perfect sunset.

Unbelievable boat ride! Six stars out of five if that were even possible! The crew was amazing and so were the snorkeling and sandwiches! I would highly recommend this to anybody if they have a heartbeat.

Stumbled upon the Octopus several years ago and, ever since, I make it a point to go back once per week that I'm there every year. I take every newcomer on the boat and we all insist this is the best part of our vacations.

We booked the Octopus for an afternoon snorkel cruise. It is an older boat with no shade. The crew was very nice and professional. The lunch was a sandwich and drinks were just ok. We had a good time, but would have preferred a nicer boat with more shade.

We were scheduled to go out on a snorkeling morning cruise but after we got there the waters were looked really rough. They had cancelled charters the day before since the weather had been rainy and stormy. They were so nice and gave us back our money after I was really concerned about going and spending all of my time... More

I went on a sailing and snorkeling trip on the Octopus for the second time. Captain Jethro and his crew were friendly and professional. Jethro took us to a great spot to snorkel, shallow reef that had lots of beautiful and exotic fish. We have plenty of room on the boat, and there were about a dozen people total on... More
