During the early years Lazy Jack sailed between the East Coast, Man O War Key and Cuba running guns, rum, cigars and bananas. Today Lazy Jack offers 2 hr. day sails or private charters from Pier 1 in Boothbay Harbor celebrating 66 years of continuous sailing and 10 years as Boothbay Harbors only historic working schooner. Lazy Jack is owner operated by Captain Joe Tassi and his son Michael.

We embarked on an early morning trip. It was misty and a slight drizzle. Captain Joe and Mike put you at ease with pleasant conversation and the gentle wind propels you out through the bay. Plenty of sights to see, a really laid back adventure. It was cool and sunny by the time we got back. I would recommend this to anyone.

We make a trip on the Lazy Jack one of our annual "Must Do's" when visiting the Coast of Maine. Booking is easy, they are always on time, and Capt Joe & Mike always treat us to a calm wind and cool conversation. This boat is family friendly, and we highly recommend to anyone looking to see Boothbay the way it ought to be seen!

We had a wonderful day and chartered the whole boat for the birthday celebration.....four generations on board.....a terrific sail...so gentle the 90 and a 92 year old on board were "happy as clams!" Joe, the captain, was knowledgable, an expert sailor, not at all intrusive but happy to answer all of our many questions. The weather broke, the sun came out.....what a beautiful way to celebrate my dad's b.day. Would highly recommend this.....we had the best time!

On our return trip to Boothbay Harbor this year, we decided to go on an afternoon sail on the Schooner Lazy Jack. So much fun! According to Captain Joe the weather hadn't been cooperating much, but we lucked out and had a fantastic sail with a bit of sun and fair amount of wind. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone wishing to experience a historic schooner with a knowledgeable and informative captain!

OMG! Just the best sail ever in all our times on the water in Maine! On a cold, drizzly, overcast morning the day after Columbus Day, a strong, prevailing easterly wind was blowing. Being sailors ourselves, we wanted to get out on the water, but many of the boats were done for the season. Captain Jack took my husband and me, along with another couple, on a sail that showed what a masterful sailor he and his first mate Michael are, and what the Lazy Jack can do. Heeled over, we raced into open water, which joyfully leapt over the gunwales of the boat to join us in the fun. Captain Jack always had complete control of the Lazy Jack and we never had any concerns. He alerted us to upcoming tacks, and made sure we were all secured. We just simply enjoyed racing on the wind and forgot all about the cold. Exhilarating!! I've posted a short video from our sail on my Facebook page for anyone who may want to share the experience. Then, after our perseverance, the sailing gods blessed us with a beautiful afternoon. Thanks, Captain Joe and Michael!! May you ever have fair winds and following seas! Emie Stewart
