I had been emailing with the owner a few times prior to our trip down. A very pleasant person to work with. We looked forward to renting our bikes from Jolly Roger and went in on our first morning on the Island. I had checked and was told they opened at 9am. When we pulled into the parking lot at 9:15 a young woman working there was out front with two kitties that seemed to hang around out front. She went inside as if she would be waiting to wait on us. We walked in and stood in front of the counter which she was behind. She was on her phone and seemed to just be scrolling. She never looked up from her phone, she never acknowledged us, she just continued scrolling on her phone. We waited a few minutes for her to at least acknowledge us but she never did, she never looked up from her phone. I walked out and my husband followed me. As I walked out I said loud enough for her to hear, and which I'm sure she did, that we would go to another outfitter. She still did not say anything. What a way to start a much needed vacation. Someone like this should be fired. NO customer service, NO customer acknowledgement. We went to a competitor and had our bikes rented within 5 minutes and they were delivered to our house within 30 minutes. Had to pay delivery charge (Jolly Roger is free) but was happy to pay the $8 just to have been treated with some decency. I will never go back to Jolly Roger and the owner really needs to think about whether this person should remain on staff.

We recently rented a golf cart for the week and enjoyed riding around the island in it. Looking forward to their new building on our trip back next year.

Lots of inventory to rent! Prices are high for cruises, fishing trips. Owner is nice though and filled us in on island history.

Me and my brother in law took our kids aged 3, 5, 7, and 10 on the pirate treasure hunt. We all had a really good time. Captain Chris made it fun for everybody. He first took us to view dolphins along the shore, but we didn’t see any. Then, he took us to the island where we looked for shells for about 20 min before we hunted for the treasure. Our kids had a great time. Our boat was a fishing boat, not a pontoon, and didn’t have bathrooms but nobody cared. If you or your kids don’t like boat rides or don’t have a long enough attention span to spend a couple of hours on a boat plus 20 minutes looking for shells, then you probably don’t want to book this. Our kids were old enough to stay engaged and they loved the whole thing. They’ve been asking if we can do it again next summer.

My kids loved this store for trinkets but everything was over priced. They asked to go tho this store multiple times. The people who worked there are very pleasant.

Every time we spend a week, we always wind up renting from Jolly Roger. They have never failed to supply us with what we need. Delivery, pickup... Full of nice people.. We have tried others and none compare to JR. Always so helpful. We needed a stroller really bad and they had one... a bit older but offered it and did not charge! We will only use them from now on.

They have everything you could possibly need while visiting St. George Island. We got our bikes and kayak there to rent for the week and it was reasonable. The staff helped us pick out suitable bikes and my daughter loved having the kayak to use instead of dragging everything with us to the island.

We stopped by Jolly Rodger after reading the other reviews and there are pros & cons of this establishment. First the pros- They have any and everything you could imagine needing to rent while staying on SGI. The folks working seemed to be pleasant enough and answered my son & his friends questions about fishing on the island which was nice of them especially seeing how busy they were...but, the cons- It was just too hectic for me. While the store has a lot of merchandise, it was very unorganized and cluttered. And the prices were very expensive.

My 2 daughter's and I went to rent bikes this afternoon. We arrived and were instantly greeted. We paid for our bike rentals and went out to the lot to pick out our bikes. I was having a hard time finding one small enough for me as I am rather short. I also wanted a basket so I could carry my belongings around the island. The owner took the time to help me try to find a specific shorter bike that would be more comfortable for me. Once we had our bikes picked out I was trying to get them in the car to take back to the house. The owner saw me struggling and offered to deliver them to our house. He loaded them into his truck and brought them down to our house right then and there. This is my first time visiting even though I've been coming to St George Island since I was a child. I will certainly be returning on our yearly week long vacations and will recommend to all my friends! Thanks again, "Jolly Roger." We have thoroughly enjoyed our bike rides around the island. See you next year!!

A small and adorable shop hidden among the island. The owner is very friendly and we enjoyed visiting!
