Tours and Tickets by Schooner Jolly II Rover
The Tall Ship Schooner Jolly II Rover offers an exciting, traditional sailing experience - with a hint of Piracy! Yes - there are cannons! You will actually be sailing on the most photographed ship in Key West! The Rover is a replica of an early 1800's American Coastal Schooner. It is the only square rigged, topsail, gaff rigged schooner in the Historic Seaport of Key West. It will actually take you back in time! Key Wests famous "Red Sails in the Sunset" schooner has plenty of room to move around and let you walk the decks! You can even help raise the sails and steer the ship! Or just simply sit back and relax. The Rover is the first legally sanctioned U.S, sailing vessel allowed to enter Havana Harbor in over 50 years!

We recently experienced the best sunset cruise with Capt Rhondi & crew (Seth & Elijah). All three were friendly and full of Keys knowledge that they shared as we cruised along. We were offered snacks & beverages and photo ops as the red sails took us out to sea. We saw dolphins
