Sail back in time to capture the bygone days of a highly romanticized period in Key West sailing history when merchant ships, smugglers and pirates plied the very waters we sail today. The Jolly II Rover, with plenty of seating, smooth ride, and signature red sails will ignite your passion for traditional tall ship sailing. Join the crew and hoist the sails or sit back, relax and take in the experience.

Sailing daily out of the Historic Seaport of Key West on Key West’s longest day sail with a Hint of Piracy! A full 2 hours on the water, your Key West sailing tour departs from the Historic Seaport (locals call it the Key West Bight). The Bight was famous for its shrimp boats and is rich in history and waterfront culture.
On reaching open waters, Jolly II Rover’s distinctive red sails unfurl as you take in Mallory Square, Civil War era Fort Zachary Taylor, the Navy Mole submarine base, Truman Annex with President Truman’s famous “Winter Whitehouse”, Christmas Tree Island and view Sunset Key with its fabulous homes of the rich and famous.
Key West’s waters teem with wildlife. Look for dolphins, turtles, flying fish, manta rays and man o’ war jellyfish. Overhead, frigates glide high above you while pelicans bob on the calm, warm waters and ospreys dive bomb for fish.
