Overview
More
Lazy Jack takes her lines from the traditional Gloucester fishing schooners of the 1850's and has had a colorful and notorious history as a fishing and passenger charter schooner. 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. This is a real-time sailing experience. Weather and conditions are variable and adjustments to the schedule may occur. We sail wind and tide and use the engine sparingly and as needed. This is not a narrated tour but highlights of the area will be pointed out, questions will be answered to the best of our ability and marine life may appear at will! Guests are encouraged to bring a slicker or warm shirt. Food and beverage are not provided but are allowed. And last but not least...come ready to have a grand time in one of the most senic places in Maine!

We booked this trip based on trip advisor reviews, but are sorry to say that we were somewhat disappointed. It was a fairly calm day which presumably affected the speed the schooner was able to travel at under sail. However most of the sail was...More
