“Great Day of Sailing on Lazy Jack”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

My family, friends and I have been sailing on the Lazy Jack each September for 3 years, when we visit from Texas. It just gets better each year. We enjoy the relaxing sail and chatting with Captain Joe. I like that it is not a constant narrative during the sail, so we can just enjoy sea breezes and sunshine. Captain Joe, we will see you again in September 2012. Martha Hungate, Houston, TX

“Awesome Sunset”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

Sailed on the Lazy Jack on Sept 11 th sunset sail and it was awesome! Capt.Joe said the breeze was unusually good for an evening sail and we made it out to Ram Island lighthouse and Fisherman Islands. The other passengers on this sail were fun and easy to get to know. My wife and I ended up going to dinner with a couple we met.September sunsets are beautiful and Capt. Joe let us enjoy all of it. It was the best evening of our vacation. P.Berke

“The BEST!”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

Captain Joe and his crew are outstanding. I've sailed with them on the Lazy Jack at least three times. I've also sailed on another schooner in the Harbor with a bad experience. Not only is it relaxing and fun, but Captain Joe is concerned with the safety of his passengers on board his boat. Also, last summer when on the Lazy Jack it was necessary to return to the Harbor due to inclement weather and Captain Joe allowed us to return on a better day for a do-over sail. After spending much time in Boothbay Harbor and going out on many different boats, I can say that The Lazy Jack is my first choice!

“The Lazy Jack sail is the best way to see Boothbay Harbor!”
Reviewed August 27, 2011

A top notch way to view the area. The skipper was welcoming and informative. The trip was well timed and well priced. One of our most memorable experiences in Boothbay Harbor.
