“Best Sunset Cruise Ever!”
This is one of my very favorite things to do in Key West! We took the cruise back in 2018 and then again this summer (2022). The ship is amazing. It is awesome to actually sail with no motors once you get outside the marina. The crew is wonderful. They let you take pictures “steering” the ship. And there are no better sunset views anywhere in Key West. They also fire a cannon on the way back into dock. You can book on line and you board at the marina in front of Conch Republic. They have coolers with waters but you can bring your own drinks onboard. Awesome Experience!

We loved our trip on the Jolly Rover! The boat was clean and beautiful, and the captain and crew were delightful work with. It was fun to be on a pirate ship – we got to steer the boat and shoot the cannons! Next time I’m in the Keys, I’ll be back to the Jolly Rover! Highly recommended.

“Had a great time on this sunset cruise!”
The crew was very friendly and chill, which set the tone that made the other passengers friendly & social as well. Once we were underway everyone was free to mingle and move around. You can BYOB….they even have a cooler to keep it cold for you. If you ever wanted to steer a tall ship, you even can take a turn at the wheel. They have cannons on the ship to fire at other boats (in the pirate way!) and end the evening with “rolling thunder” where the cannon was aimed at the shore & the echo reverberated back. This was one of the biggest highlights of our trip to Key West! We highly recommend for all ages!

“The best way to see a Key West sunset!”
We have done the sunset cruise with the Jolly II Rover 3 times now, and I can’t believe it took me this long to review this amazing trip. If you’ve been to Key West, then you know how amazing the sunset is! If you’ve never seen it on the water, then you don’t know what you’re missing. We watched this beautiful schooner sail by many times at sunset before we took the cruise–it’s red sails make it stand out. They are the friendliest, most knowledgeable people who genuinely love what they do & love sharing it with others. It’s a great tour around Wisteria and Sunset key and down to the Fort Zachary Taylor beach. We got a great history lesson each time as well–just ask, they love to tell you about Key West & sailing. The sunset cruise is BYOB (They have a cooler) and they provide a few snacks, but you’ll be glued to the beautiful views! They even have some small cannons–super fun. If you’re in Key West for while, they offer a discount for the 2nd cruise and the 3rd cruise is on them.
Skip the tacky booze cruise tours that ruin the harbor and the scene on the water and sail on a schooner!
