My family of four (two kids under 10, wife, and me) enjoyed a mostly great sunset sail on the Jolly II Rover. The kids loved taking turns at the wheel and steer the boat, under the captain's direction, for several minutes at a time. The water was calm and the sunset was very nice, making for many beautiful photos. The... More

We just loved this cruise which was a wonderful way to watch the sunset. Made it even more fun since it was BYOB, so we brought some wine. They even supplied cups and had complimentary chilled bottled water on board. Captain Brent and his crew were very friendly and fun. Would definitely sail with them again.

This was an amazing sunset cruise. Captain Ron,Margo and Krissy pointed out sights and gave us a little history as we sailed into the sunset. Bringing your own cocktails and snacks was a definite bonus. Their frequent sail card is great too! Enjoy the music from the water and sail gently with the Jolly Rover!

I am an Eagle Scout that has recently taken an adventure on the Jolly ll Rover and it has been one of the best experiences of my life! The Captains Rhon, and Rio were amazingly helpful and patient with our venture crew. They really put the experience of us Scouts above their own enjoyment and did the most they could... More

Sailed the sea with a group of Venture scouts and could not have had a better time. The captains Rhon and Rio were great, informative, and educating. Strongly recommend this for all BSA and Girl Scouts and family adventures.

Spent a week on the Jolly II Roger with Captain Rhon and Captain Rio as part of a Boy Scout trip. It was great. They each went out of their way to make sure each person had a great time. The ship is beautiful when under sail. Forget the party boats and sail on a piece of history.

We brought a group of 14 BSA Venture kids and 6 adult leaders for a 5 day snorkeling and fishing adventure. It was phenomenal! Captain Rhon and Captain Rio are top shelf for customer service. The reef snorkeling was unbelievably good and we are fresh fish every day. I highly recommend the Jolly II Rover for a private charter adventure... More

My family of 6 spent a wonderful evening aboard the Jolly Rover II on July 6, 2014. Although the evening was warm, once we got to open water we enjoyed a lovely breeze, a quiet ride where only the slight slapping of the waves accompanied our trip. We were able to bring snacks and drinks aboard - a cooler of... More

We booked a Jolly Rover sunset cruise while visiting Key West in June. It was just awesome! We deliberately chose the historic schooner instead of the many party boats available. The party boats and noisy drunken passengers, plus loud and tasteless music, turned us off. The Jolly Rover was just what we wanted: passionate, knowledgeable crew members who seemed to... More

We have now sailed on the Jolly Rover 2 twice. Each time it has been such a delight! We had plans to go out on Sunday night and it didn't just rain, it POURED! We could see the storm rolling in and the captain and crew were wise enough to say that we were going to wait 15 minutes before... More
