    Anyone booked with Jethro and Octopus lately??

    Hi, Waiting to hear from Jethro and his boat the Octopus. Has anyone been on his boat recently? Or heard from him? Trying to put together a private sail with a catamaran company and not having any luck getting the answers I wanted. So far Pelican isn't going to work out (no small private sails), nor is Tranquilo( size of boat), or Morning Star (not looking for that kind of boat) SO...we're stuck waiting to hear from Jethro. There is going to be 15-20 of us and we want to go to places on a catamaran that we've never been to. We're done with the german boat and boca catalina. Can anyone give me advise?

    Hi Cindy - We've done a few snorkeling trips with Jethro and have always enjoyed our sails with him but we've never gone on a private sail with him.

    Hope it works out with Jethro. He's a good guy! Last time I was on his snorkel cruise he gave me a free Octopus coffee mug that I use almost every day.

    I like the swiggles, too.

    Would anyone have an opinion on 10 adults and 6-8 kids on Octopus? Would you do it on his size boat( 40 ft)...And, anyone have any area's that they would suggest we ask him to take us. We aren't interested in the german boat or boca catalina. thanks....cindyo

    Octopus

    Hi, Just went with Jethro and Jeff on the Octopus on May 11th. WONDERFUL!! It was my first time snorkeling and he was very helpful and informative. Drinks were plentiful, fresh baked french bread with gouda cheese and fresh fruit. We took the afternoon snorkel cruise. Was one of the highlights of our trip. I have attached some pics.
