The weather was wonderful. The view was picture perfect. The Captain knows how to sail. He shared history, answered our questions and treated us like friends. My first time sailing and it was fantastic. Thank you, Cap'n Joe! And First Mate, Michael.

I'm so glad that you enjoyed your sail on Lazy Jack and that it was your first. Making new friends and sharing my schooner is why I do this. Thank you for sailing with us. More

My 11 year wanted to go on a boat. After reading the Lazy Jack reviews, and the responses Captain Jack gave to rude, unintelligent, previous customers that provided the trip with a bad review, I had to go on the boat just to meet who could be responding with the intelligent snarky responses that were given. The trip was great,... More

I'm glad you enjoyed your sail and I am pleased that you felt safe. That's important! Everyone on board enjoyed sailing with your son. I didn't mind his questions at all. Thanks for your review. Captain Joe More

Our family had a wonderful, relaxing afternoon. This is real sailing, not a tourist trap. Exactly what we were hoping to find! Thank you for a great experience.

Joe and Michael were great hosts on this superb 2 hour sail around Boothbay Harbour. Little use of the motor produced peace. We just saw whatever happened in the sun. Took beer and a picnic. Happy days!

We love the Lazy Jack and Joe is really informative on the sights we seen along the way...The view is breath taking, so relaxing.. But be on the look out, you might just see a few seals and dolphins along the way! This is my second time on the Lazy Jack. I don't think you will be disappointed if you... More

This was our second trip to Boothbay and our second sail on the Lazy Jack and we will do it again on the next trip. The first time we had plenty of wind, this time not so much but on both we had a great time. Capt. Joe is friendly and informative but you also have quiet time to just... More

We had a lovely sail through the harbor, the sun shining and we had an ok breeze. Shame that the wind didn't pick up a bit more, but that's sailing. The captain and crew where very friendly and entertaining in anwsering questions and telling about the boat and sailing adventures.

My husband and I recently took trip on the Schooner Lazy jack. This was one of the best boat day trips we have ever taken... The Captain was extremely friendly, answering all my annoying questions which I must have asked the entire trip. Captain Joe was very informative and kept our attention the entire trip. Even when the wind died... More

I went on both the Schooners in Boothbay Harbor and here is my truth of the Eastwind and Lazy Jack. I did not personally get the Tripadvisor "pep talk" on my trip with Captain Gil on the Eastwind; however, I did hear about it on my Lazy Jack sail. Bottom line: Both provide a lovely typical sailing experience. I would... More

We took the 5:30 cruise with Lazy Jack's (sailed by Captain Joe - kind of confusing). Could not be happier with experience. Did not see a bunch of marine life, etc. but this was not what this is what this sailboat ride is about and he tells you that upfront. It was very authentic. Beautiful sailboat. I had never been...
