My wife: Robin and I were first timers to Cabbage Island Clambakes. We were amazed at the service and the natural surroundings we found ourselves in. A unique experience was awaiting us at the end of the day. We had gone off after the meal to take some pictures of the isle when my wife said that it sounded like... More

Cabbage Island Clambake was an excellent experience!! From the lovely boat ride, to the awesome food, this is one adventure not to miss. The family is so friendly and the island is beautiful. The food was AWESOME. Come hungry - you will not be disappointed:):) One of the highlights of our trip to Maine. We visited on June 22, 2015.

Nice motor boat ride around the bay. Exceptionally friendly staff. Well organized. We had 139 folks on the ride to Cabbage Island, but it never felt crowded. The lobsters (yes, two per person) were excellent...steamed not boiled so they were tender and sweet. Included a nice serving of clams, corn on the cob, baked potato and even a hard boiled... More

The Cabbage Island Clambake Cruise is the highlight of our summer vacation in Maine and seems many Mainers are not even aware of this "Gem" snuggled in Boothbay Harbor. It is owned by Wayne & Jim Moore who have made this clambake-lobster event a very treasured memory for those fortunate to go. The history of this island dates back to... More

The boat ride was fun even in the rain. After we arrived on Cabbage Island and got situated, we went down to the water where the lobster and clams were being steamed. We were given silver lunch trays and moved along to have our food served to us. I couldn't believe it. 2 lobsters, corn on the cob, a whole... More

We had a free day while traveling around Maine and stumbled upon this here on trip advisor. I called to see if they could accommodate a same-day reservation for two, and the gentleman on the other end was really friendly and helpful. He was able to take us that same day! Only negative thing was I don't remember him warning... More

A great attraction in Booth Bay Harbor, Maine is the Cabbage Island Clam & lobster bake. We picked up our transportation (the Bennie-Alice, a two-decker boat that held about 100 or so diners) and headed out for the hour's ride to Cabbage Island. The ride was along the shoreline and the beautiful surrounding islands and there was plenty of covered... More

The boat ride was great, the guides, servers, cooks, and the entire island family were the best. Food was incredible. The scenery was super. If we ever travel back to Maine from Kentucky again this will be a priority

I agree with the other reviewers -- this is a wonderful attraction and well worth the money for all you get! The ride to the island was fun and informative, and the food is plentiful and delicious. When we arrived at the island for the clambake, we were greeted by the matriarch of the family and the woman who the... More

We loved this trip! Great food and the island was beautiful! The only way to describe this trip, it was like visiting family! Bennie Alice is a wonderful woman. The whole family made all of us feel at home. Would do this again and again!
