This was recommended to us by local folk, who live nearly 3 hours away, yet take all their visitors there. So we thought, "why not?" What a great experience!! This is truly a family operation - the family has hired only the best of the best to help out, and everyone we encountered (from the person on the phone, to... More

On a trip to Boothbay Harbor, I went with a group of friends out to the Cabbage Island Clambake. There was a long line for the 12:30 PM cruise boat named Bennie Alice that leaves from the dock on Commercial Street adjacent to the Fisherman’s Wharf Inn. Once the boarding process started, the line moved quickly. The cruise was very... More

Cabbage Island Clambake is so much more than a clambake - first you take a lovely boat ride from Booth Bay Harbor to the island, then you watch your food being prepared in open pits, time for creamy New England clam chowder, then time to enjoy - lobster, clams, corn on the cob, a hard cooked egg, potato all cooked...

Booth bay Harbor itself is beautiful and quaint. It was an overcast, foggy day but didn't dampen spirits or the experience. The captain of the vessel gave an excellent narrated tour and his quick wit showed through when the fog was so dense and he told us on the starboard side is the Eiffel Tower "somewhere". People actually talked to... More

We went on a birthday trip to Maine. The birthday girl wanted to be near the ocean and do a clam bake. This excursion accomplished that! From the moment we handed our tickets over to the Captain we were treated like true guests. The boat trip was informative but not too long or overdone. The Captain even took the birthday... More

...make it this clambake excursion to Cabbage Island. Could you find a more exciting ocean tour? Probably. Could you find a fancier seafood meal? Undoubtedly. But taken as a package, the experience is great fun. The trip to the island is lovely (I especially recommend the evening seating) and just long enough to work up an appetite breathing the salt...

Had such an amazing time with my family. The boat ride there was amazing we learned about the near by islands and light houses and the boat ride was comfortable and easy to get on and off of. The island is so cute and untouched. The fish chowder was outstanding and the lobster was to die for. It was fun... More

I really liked it, but when I compare to local lobster shacks and other cruises, it just falls a bit short. I think because they are cooking for 100 people at a time instead of individually. One thing I will say, is that the people were super friendly!

I loved every minute of this experience. This family is awesome, they hire great people and they work tirelessly to make you feel welcome and happy. The food was amazing, the island is beautiful, the boat tour is interesting and not overdone. Great way to spend an afternoon and to experience real Boston!
