From the one hour scenic boat ride (with cash bar), tour of Boothbay Harbor to the beautiful private Cabbage Island Lobster Bake experience...this is a must do experience! We celebrated our anniversary with the Moore Family. Everything was well organized, delicious and well worth the money. We will surely visit them again next year!

beautiful location, fabulous service, the best lobster and blueberry cake for dessert was phenomenal. Cute gift store on site, but cash only. If you have someone who doesn't eat lobster, you can preorder either hotdogs or a delicious 1/2 chicken that is grilled. Nothing to dislike!

We had never heard of the Cabbage Island Clambake, until friends suggested it. They were right in their reviews, wonderful excursion! You must stand outside the boat to hear about the history of the area, as inside the speakers were garbled. Wonderful one hour ride to the island with many photo opps. As you disembark you are greeted by the... More

A must while you're in Boothbay. We've been home a week now and we're still talking about the Cabbage Island Clambake. Amazing staff, super organized, and generous amount of food: two lobsters; onion; chowder; hard boiled egg; clams; blueberry cake. We didn't eat for the rest of the day. The hosts make you feel like you're part of the family.... More

Lobster and clam bake is held on Cabbage Island. You can pay for a boat ride or take your own boat to island. There can be a large group (up to 175) people in attendance. Lobster, clams, corn, etc are all steamed outdoors in a traditional manner. In truth the food was average as everything was over cooked due to... More

This was a great trip. My wife found this on Trip Advisor, and her being a lobster lover, it was a must do for us. First, this is a cash only business but there is a close by ATM right on pier 6 if you're not prepared. We went on a Thursday in the 2nd week of July and there... More

Cabbage Island Clambake was a trip my parents could not afford in our early days. Finally, decades lated, we took our kids on what was way back when a high end excursion. The time and the money were perfect. The trip, the talk, the lobster, the service and the boat crew were well worth the adventure! Many years the big... More
