    i got very seasick on jolly pirate once.......to the point where i would not get back on after snorkeling.....long story, but i got back to my timeshare via 4 wheels hahahahahaha
    hahaha thats a memory for sure!!!!! Thats what I am afraid of... I think it would be amazing to see the sunset out there, but I don't think I will risk it!!

    The large catamarans ride pretty smoothly.

    I took my mom out on the Red Sail Catamaran and she had no issues. My mom is notorious for getting seasick and I was worried. The water was pretty calm that day and the boat handled very well!

    I've gone on Blue Melody/Black Pearl three times, and it's been smooth as glass sailing each time (twice in the spring and once in the summer). My husband, youngest son, and I are all prone to motion sickness, and we had absolutely no problem. We ate the fantastic sandwiches and drank their lovely signature drink and enjoyed snorkeling too. The sunset sail we took only goes up and down the coast from Palm Beach toward the direction of the light house.

    We did the Jolly Pirates sunset sail about a month ago, and it was wonderful. Beautiful weather, good drinks, great crowd. The sunset was fantastic, and complimented nicely by the fun music. Made my trip that I got picked for the piggyback flip too, so I am totally and completely biased!

    Now some reviews I have read make the Jolly Pirate sound like a spring break event..I am questioning whether I should look for something different for my 15 year old girls...I guess I will find out tomorrow!!!!!! Woo hoo...finally!

    When I have been on Jolly Pirates, the group was a diverse mix of ages. The sunset sail had almost no kids (my 2 were the only ones), and I would guess 50% under age 40, 50% over. Everyone behaved themselves quite well, although you cannot control who will be on your sailing. Really was a fun time. Totally loved the flip Andrea, you are right! I couldn't keep my eyes open though!
