We did this tour in Febuary. It is a great way to see the sunset if you are in the Keys much more fun than from shore. Additionally the ship is a nice experience if you like sail boats and the crew is fun - recommended!

Enjoyed the cruise immensely. The captain and crew were very attentive and informative. It made for a wonderful afternoon/evening on the water. Dolphins were a bonus!

I have visited Key West several times over the last few years, and have been able to take a sunset sail on the Jolly II Rover on most of those occasions. It's always a fun time.

There's no better way to view the incredible Key West Sunset. The crew was fantastic and it was a unique voyage instead of a typical booze cruise. We were able to help hoist sails and took turns steering the ship before settling under blankets the crew provided to watch the gorgeous sunset.

Captain Rio and crew were great. We traded cannon fire with other tall ships. We helped with raising sails and took a turn at the helm too. They loose 1 point since they canceled our initial reservation because they didn't have enough customers. We had to cancel other activities panned for the day to make a later cruise time.

Definitely would do it again! The crew was amazing and there is no better seat to a beautiful key west sunset! Plus it's a pirate ship... can't get any better than that!

Really enjoyed our ride on this unique ship. The crew was so friendly & they wanted to ensure everyone was comfortable & having a good time. The cannon they shot was fun too! It was actually quite loud, but no problem with your ears. They served crackers, cheese & fruit. Some folks brought their own beverages on board. What I... More

Just Fantastic! This was our 2nd time on the Jolly II Rover for the sunset sail and it did not disappoint. Extremely professional Captain and crew. Beautiful ship with red sails!! Love that it is not a "booze cruise" but you can bring BOYB. Very quiet once you are away from port. Will definitely do this a 3rd time.

First time in the Keys and we decided to take a Sunset Cruise. Captain Rio and his crew were nothing short of awesome. Fun, friendly and informative. You can tell they love what they do. I would reccomend this to anyone. Great time.
