I cannot put into words how amazing the sunset cruise on the Jolly II Rover was, but I will give it a shot.. The captain was amazing. He was interactive, funny, and very engaging. We were able to drive the boat, as well as fire the cannons. It was an all inclusive sensory experience. Feel the breeze, see the sunset,... More

This is great -- the boat actually sets sail, it's BYOB, there's no loud music, and it's both family-friendly and couples-friendly. What a pleasant way to spend the evening. We had a wonderful sail -- it was among the hilights of our trip to Key West. The crew is good natured and funny and they all seem to love what... More

My wife and I jumped at the chance to take this sunset cruise and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a fabulous evening even though the sunset was hidden by clouds. The captain and crew are very professional and created a very friendly atmosphere. This experience is one of the highlights of our vacation to Key West and certainly well worth... More

We took the sunset sailing cruise during our visit to Key West over Mardi Gras week. The sunset was beautiful and the weather was great. Bring your own wine, beer or other adult beverage and snacks as they only had water provided. It was my wife and I and our two teenage kids and we all had a nice fun... More

Every person in the Jolly Rover Crew did an excellent job, from the guy who took our reservation to the crew. Captain Rio was always up, funny, enthusiastic and capable. Listening to him challenge passing boats for "booty" and shooting them with one of our cannons when they laughingly ignored us was funny and fun. The crew were also great,... More

We loved everything about this trip. Our Captain was Rio and his staff were Andrew and Kelsey. They all were great. Rio is a perfect man for the job! He is very personable and freindly!

This was the best sailing trip I've taken with my daughter who is 6. She was able to wear the pirate hat and take the helm! It was a windy day but the crew was ready with blankets for anyone who might need them. We missed the sunset due to clouds but this was so relaxing, with a very friendly... More

We just returned from a wonderful week in Key West. My husband and I took a sunset cruise on the Jolly Rover the second night there. The weather was beautiful and the boat is too. It was very relaxing. If you want excitement though, this isn't it. This is for people who just want to chill. They don't serve any... More

We had a very windy afternoon and many events were canceled due to rough seas. We took the opportunity to sail on an 81 foot schooner, Jolly II rover. This is a replica of a historic sailing ship. It has two large masts and multiple sails. My daugher and her friends had fun raising the sails and steering the boat.... More

This is a lovely schooner with a delightful, experienced, friendly crew. My husband, teenage son and I took a sunset sail on the Jolly Rover this week. The crew let my son take the helm, lending him the pirate hat. They handed out blankets to the chilly and bottle water to all. This is a very pleasant sail, not a... More
