The Lazy Jack is a beautiful boat and we had a great time sailing on the Bay. Sean, the Skipper, was a lot of fun to talk to - he obviously loves what he does! There were only about 10 of us on our sail so we had room to move about. It was a great afternoon.

Beautiful boat, made stem-to-stern from scratch by our captain. Six of us went out to watch the fireworks, and got a 1 1/2 hour sail around the Bay first. Very comfortable, with 21 guests plus captain and mate. The captain regaled us with the story of how he built the boat. He was also very thoughtful, and lent my husband... More

We had a fantastic day! I only wish our trip had been longer. Captain O'Connor and his first mate were knowledgeable and friendly and we were encouraged to BYOB and enjoy the boat as much was we could! Will definitely sail again!

Decided to take an afternoon sail on the Schooner Lazy Jack - we had previously sailed on the Surprise & had enjoyed that but wanted to try a different boat. Glad we did - really enjoyed the boat & the captains tales of local history, etc. And it's pretty neat that he built the boat himself. We were lucky that... More

Sailing is the signature activity of Camden Maine! We took an early afternoon cruise on Lazy Jack II in September. Captain Sean, who is also the boat's builder was very hospitable. It was if you were a personal guest. There were only 8 passengers - an ideal number most lent a hand in raising the sails. You can also take... More

It was an amazing sail. Rob and his assistant (sorry, I forgot his name) were very informative and didn't hesitate to answer all of our questions. The scenery was beautiful and it was nice to hear some local history. I and my friend had a great time. Thank you.

We thoroughly enjoyed our mid-day cruise in the harbor. The captain Rob and his first mate were so friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We saw a bald eagle, seals and learned about the different islands/boats etc.My 8 year old son even got to help rig the line for the sails. We really enjoyed the cruise - BYOB/snacks and relax...
