About Us

Come see dolphins play on a Pensacola Beach dolphin cruise in Pensacola Bay and Santa Rosa Sound. Jolly Sailing is a family-owned company established in 2011 in Pensacola Beach, Florida. It all began with the Jolly Mon, our 27′ American Mariner Sailboat, on which we offered sailing, snorkeling, and sunset cruise.

We currently have several boat options to choose from, including Sapphire, a 37′ Hunter Cherubini sailing yacht, Jolly’Ventures, a 26′ powerboat tritoon, and Jolly Dolphin, a 42′ powerboat tritoon passenger vessel that carries up to 28 passengers. We offer a wide variety of excursions, both private and shared, for guests to enjoy.

Over the years, we have been pleased to welcome several experienced, friendly, and informative captains and crew members to our team. Together we strive to provide a safe, relaxing, and entertaining excursion for our guests. It’s not just a job; it’s a lifestyle that we enjoy sharing with visitors to Pensacola Beach and residents of the Pensacola Bay area. We love meeting guests from all over the world and sharing our knowledge of boating, dolphins and local wildlife, as well as Pensacola history and attractions with them. Join us on a tour today!

DolphinSo Much Fun

I have been coming to Pensacola for many many years and I’ve been on almost every dolphin Cruise in this area. We had a blessed time. So many dolphins and a beautiful sunset. Captain Mike was funny and knowledgeable and his first mate Paul was on point with drinks and very friendly.

We took the sunset dolphin cruise which exceeded our expectations. There were plenty of dolphins, a great sunset, and the crew was enthusiastic and fun. The price was more than reasonable, the seating comfortable. Overall the experience was a very relaxing excursion. Highly recommend Jolly Sailing.

Excellent trip. Great information received on the dolphins we watched frolicking in the ocean. Captain Mike and Riley were full of information with great humor and refreshing “beverages” that made the trip even more enjoyable. Highly recommend. Great price!

The water has always been a favorite place for outdoor recreation. Paddling a canoe along a rambling creek, jumping the wake behind a fast boat, or snorkeling among coral reefs, are just a few of the many ways you can have fun in the water. The one thing that these and every other form of water recreation have in common is that they can all be made more enjoyable with our water sports equipment. We have all types of inflatables from balls to boats, every kind of towable equipment from tubes to water skis, canoes and kayaks and the carriers and racks to get them to the water, snorkeling gear, pools, waterproof action cameras to record your aquatic adventures.
