A friend talked to Jethro from the Octopus today. He is still in business.

We have received two emails from him in the last few weeks although I have had to resend the email twice before he responded the second time. We are booked on a sailing trip with him at the end of March. He gave us 2 numbers to call him: 59333739 or 5864281. Maybe try emailing him again and use a brief subject title. Good luck!

How was the snorkeling? We love sailing AND snorkeling. Is this the excursion for us, or would just a beach day be fine?

Thanks!

Yes, very easily. The Octopus departs from Palm Beach. MoomBa is a great place close by for you to relax after your excursion. http://www.moombabeach.com/component/

We just did Aruba for a week, and this was really a great trip on the Octopus. Only 11 signed up, so we had lots of room. Breakfast breads and rolls early on, and a fine lunch later. Took the morning trip..............

We usually are there for just the day on a cruise ship, and have been 4 times that way. Decided to do my wifes birthday for a week, and will go back for 2 weeks next time. Some really great restaurants around the high rise area too.......................baffles
