Cash or check only for this trip but worth it. The roughly 55 minute boat ride takes the long way about so that the captain can tell you about the sites around the harbor. When you arrive you have about 30 minutes to explore, throw...More

This is your chance to partake of a New England clam bake. The boat (Bennie Alice) leaves the harbor around noon and travels around the point to Cabbage Island in Linekin Bay. It’s not far. During the course of the trip the captain provides information...More

There won't be any outdoor venues for a lobster bake until mid-June. If you are going to be in the Boothbay Region that week you can get the indoor equivalent at Robinsons Wharf on Southport Island.
1) Are the clams and lobster cooked together? 2)Do they have a lunch and dinner option? What time does each begin and end? 3)Is drawn butter served with the lobster? Thanks.

Didn't see any reviews from May. Are they open for business in May and if so, is it a good time of year to go? This will be our second visit to Maine. Last visit was late October and we experienced a nor'easter. Very excited to experience Maine in May!
