Took a ride on the Lazy Jack for our first sailboat ride. There were only 5 of us so that made it very nice to be able to ask questions. Sean was very knowledgeable and explained a lot of things about sailing to us. The view of the Curtis Island lighthouse was very nice. Very enjoyable couple of hours.

We took the early morning sail on board Lazy Jack II and had a great time. The wind was good, the weather gorgeous and the captain very knowledgeable. The schooner is a beautiful ship and made good speed through the water. We also saw a bald eagle and some seals so a lovely trip all round.

So much fun! The captain and his mate were wonderful. Not just a fun ride, but he gave us a lot of history and answered all of my 11-year-old's questions. We saw an island full of seals - precious. Got a porpoise bonus, too. We got to help hoist the sails. A super fun outing - very reasonably priced. Will... More

We had beautiful weather for our morning sail on the Lazy Jack Ii out of Camden Harbor. We were originally scheduled for a sunset sail the previous day but Sean cancelled the trip b/c the prediction was for high winds. Sean was an impressive captain - he built his glorious boat himself! He was extremely knowledgable about lobsters, boats, marine... More

We had a wonderful, cozy and personal sail on this beautiful boat. Sean was informative, friendly and accommodating to our group. The seating was comfortable and safe as well. Price was best in area and we even received a discount from our hotel on this vessel (Mount Battie).

Two years ago we met the Lazy Jack II and had an exhilarating windy sail around the islands on a crowded boat. That excitement was great fun and today we had a different but also enjoyable sail. The wind has been down this week and we were lucky to catch enough to sail without engine assist. A smooth quiet relaxing... More
