Thirteen of my family members enjoyed a wonderful afternoon sail aboard the Lazy Jack II with Captain Sean and his first mate, Kendra. They were both very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Lazy Jack II is a very well maintained Schooner and we will definitely be back out for a sail again with any company that visits Maine. We... More

A beautiful August day with a 14 knot breeze greeted us. Then we were greeted by the captain who also BUILT THE BOAT in 2004. We learned about the many islands around Camden as we sailed. Exactly what we wanted.

The captain and his mate where quite knowledgeable about both the ecology and the history of the area, and the Schooner is absolutely beautiful! A great sunset cruise. We even got to see a harbor seal!

There was not much to see for 2hours but a lighthouse and a seal. Just sailed out to the middle of the harbor and back again. If they had served some refreshments, it would have been better. We did being drinks along for the kids but for the price, they could have had a cooler of soda and water. Also,... More

I had the pleasure of enjoying an evening harbor cruise on the Lazy Jack II recently and found the schooner to be impeccably maintained and crewed by exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly sailors. Captain Shawn and his first mate did a great job of answering all questions and providing interesting insight into the sights of Camden harbor and the surrounding landscape.... More

The Lazy Jack crew (Captain Shawn) graciously booked our antique car tour group at the last minute because the Appledore couldn't make it up from Florida in time. It was nice to have the two captains work together to provide a sail for our group. Shawn loves what he does and doesn't seem to get tired of taking groups out,... More

I grew up near Camden but now live out of the state of Maine. I scheduled that 9 members of my extended family would do the 4th of July cruise to see the fireworks & the harbor. I booked more than a month in advance. To say we were all looking forward to this is an understatement. Our group included... More

The Lazy Jack II is the fastest ship on the bay which means more sailing and better sight of the bay! Captain Shawn is friendly and great with kids. He gave us a great history of the bay and knowledge of the surrounding islands and geography. We highly recommend this cruise!

Dogs and kids are welcome aboard the Lazy Jack! The sail is two-hours, and they fly by. The boat's squeaky clean, the captain and mate competent and friendly without being cartoon-ish. It's OK to bring snacks and beverages (both kinds) aboard. I'd go back.

We have a wonderful experience on the Lazy Jack. We took our 18 month old son on his first boat ride! The captain was extremely nice, friendly and informative. He let our son "drive" the boat! The captain was very knowledgeable about the area and told great stories about his sea experiences and building the boat. Great views on the... More
