“Great Sail!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Had a wonderful time with Joe and his son Michael on the Lazy Jack! My wife and I appreciated that this wasn't the typical narrated tour that you find on the big harbor cruises with tourists packed shoulder to shoulder. Captain Joe was friendly and answered questions as we had them, but really lets you enjoy the scenery and the quiet beauty of Boothbay Harbor.

“Sunset Cruise”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

My wife and I finally made it to our annual Boothbay Harbor vacation last week. Looking for something to do that afternoon we were advised by our B&B owners of cruises on the Lazy Jack. We scheduled a sunset cruise that evening. The weather and sights couldn't have been any better, saw Loons, a seal and cormorants. Enjoyed talking with the other passengers and with Captain Joe and his son Michael. Stimulating conversation was had by all. Will likely be a repeat visitor on our next trip to Maine.

“This was a great ride”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Signed up with the Lazy Jack last Friday for the 5 o'clock sail. I loved this experience. It was so peaceful and relaxing. I felt fortunate that there were only 5 of us passengers and then Joe and Michael. I'm not much of a people person but this felt like a trip with friends. Engaging conversation with the captain... there was only one problem. It only lasted two hours.

“Very nice time.”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

My wife, daughter and I had a great time on this excursion. We really liked the fact that we were actually sailing, and that a peaceful day on the water wasn't interrupted by lots of chatter. We did enjoy chatting with the crew, and learning about the history of the ship and the Captains interesting background. We also enjoyed laying back on the deck soaking in the sun and listening to the sounds of the wind in the sails.

“The sunset tour was a great way to finish off a wonderful day in Boothbay Harbor.”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Captain Joe and his deckhand Mike were very hospital and informative as they welcomed everyone aboard their vessel. We did not have a lot of wind that evening , but we still got in a nice sail.
Captain Joe was more than happy to answer any questions and quite proud to tell some history off the Lazyjack. I highly recommend sailing on the Lazyjack when in Boothbay Harbor.
