Cabbage Island is an entire experience. You feel like you have joined the family for the day. The ride out is beautiful and the captain gives you a little tour. The moment you reach the island the staff immediately gets to work making sure you have everything you need and feel as welcome as a private family guest. The food... More

There is a wonderful boat ride to the island, then you are treated to a wonderful meal. The boat captain gives a very interesting narration of the sights on the way to and fro.

Leave your worries behind and enjoy the day. This is a fun time for people of all age. Take a boat ride out to an island and have a seafood lunch with all the fixings on a picnic table. Play old time yard games and mingle.

Been going to this clambake since 1992! What an experience for a first-timer! The boat ride to the Island is so beautiful. Cabbage Island is a gem in the middle of Linekin Bay. Delicious food! Wonderful staff! Don't leave Boothbay Harbor without trying this! You'll never forget it!

I agree with most of the former reviewers, but the reason I did not rate it excellent is due to the lack of clarity of the narration unless you are standing outside on the bow. Enough visitors have mentioned this by now that I hope the Moore family will take notice and try to improve the quality for those sitting... More

We had the best time of our vacation here. The boat ride, the island, and food, ALL were awesome. The young men cooking the food were proud of what they did and it showed in the way they explained the process of preparing the meal and history of cabbage island and clam bakes. This is an activity the whole family... More

The cruise out to Cabbage island is outstanding and informative. The setting is very homey and casual and the service can't be beat! And the food...a ton of it...and it's all great. We had a great time even on a dreary cold drizzly day!
