Upon landing members of the Moore family greeted passengers during debarkation. The small island had numerous activities and walking paths for exploration. the onsite building for inclement weather has a full bar and gift shop. The fish chowder was... More

If you have been to a Clam Bake, go to this one. If you have not go to this one. It was a wonderful experience for my wife and I. It begins with an nice tour of the harbor while you are taken to Cabbage Island. Once there you can watch them cooking up all the necessaries for a clam... More

Being a 'west coaster' I had no idea what to expect when our convention group took this boat ride. You start at the dock in Boothbay and climb aboard a boat which tours the islands off the coast. A running commentary provides information on what you are seeing. We were greeted by one of the owners when going ashore to... More

What an experience! Everything that was promised was delivered. The boat ride to the island was relaxing, comfortable and scenic. As we approached the island, the aroma of the grills approached the boat. Seating was European-style and we dined with some ladies from a tour group. TWO lobsters and all the lobster-bake fixings...plus dessert...I was nearly in pain after eating... More

Cannot recommend this trip enough. The food was wonderful and plentiful. The staff were all very friendly! Hiked the island and was greeted with amazing views. Five stars is not enough to rate this trip!

The evening of July 10, 2015, we had almost 100 family and friends for our 50th anniversary celebration. The whole Cabbage Island experience was amazing. The Moore family greeted us as we arrived, the island setting and lodge were lovely, the staff couldn't have been friendlier, and the food was abundant and delicious. We couldn't have asked for more. The... More

We visited Cabbage Island many years ago and our adult children wanted to visit again. It was as we remembered. The boat ride was excellent, giving an ocean view of Boothbay. After arriving on the island, we were immediately greeted with friendly faces and excellent cuisine! Our meal was amazing! Fun New England adventure!

They only take cash. We found this out when we got there and it was too late to go grab some cash. They worked with us and we were able to still go on the trip. Did some sight-seeing on the boat ride to the island and then explored the island while the seafood was being cooked. We got a... More
