Jolly Pirates offered three different touring times—morning, from 9:30-1:00; afternoon from 2:30-5:00; and evening from 5:30-7:00. We took the afternoon tour and had TONS of fun! This is well worth the price if for no other reason than the open bar. The pirate ship we sailed on took us snorkeling off the wreck of the Atilla (a WWII ship intentionally... More

Awesome time had great time. Snorkeling was cool and then between the drinks and the rope swing not enough positive things to say about the amount of fun we had. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a fun filled day of snorkeling and drinking.

My sister and I decided to take the evening tour our last night on the island and my only problem was that we didn't do it sooner! It was so much fun and the crew on the ship made it that much better. We got to enjoy the views of the sunset over the ocean all while enjoying the open... More

This was a great boat trip that included 3 snorkeling spots, swing, drinks and a simple bbq lunch at the end. It really worth the money, and if you book it trough their website you save 10%. The snorkeling spots are not the best so if you are going for that you will be disappointed. The atmosphere was fun thanks... More

Can't say enough wonderful things about the Jolly Pirates Cruises. We come every year with a large group of family and friends. We are now so large that we are able to charter our own boat. They always go above and beyond to show us a good time and we love returning hear after year. See you again next holiday... More

This trip visited 2 snorkel sites, one of which was a sunken boat. Very cool. They did insist that everyone wear a life vest due to the rough water at that site. The other two sites were good as well with a variety of fish. The snorkeling is about 20 minutes per site. There was more time allotted to the... More

We had heard great things about this excursion from friends and it did not disappoint. We'd never been snorkeling before and it gave us a chance to try that while still having some fun drinking and jumping from the boat. Like I said, it poured for 80% of the trip, but you could still see plenty of fish and the... More

Gorgeous views of Palm Beach cruising along on the Jolly Pirate. Great snorkeling - favorite part was the rope swing!

The crew made for a fun trip. 3 stops for snorkeling, a relaxing BBQ lunch brought out to the ship of BBQ chicken, ribs, patio salad, and rice, and all you can drink bar. Watch out for the Pirate Punch. We liked the morning sailing as we could go take a nap before evening activities
