This was a great deal and activity. For like $70 you get a scenic boat ride then you receive a feast of 2 lobsters, clams, corn, fish chowder and blueberry cake. The family that runs it is great and accommodating. Highly recommend.

We highly recommend a ferry ride out to Cabbage Island for the clam bake. The owners of this island have exceptional hospitality!! This generally sells out quick so plan ahead but if says sold out put yourself on the wait list. Your more then likely to receive an email to confirm your visit as that’s how we were able to enjoy this experience. They take pride in what they do here and the staff is outstanding!! The food was amazing and you meet some wonderful people excited for the clam bake as well which makes for a wonderful experience. This is a must do if coming to Boothbay. Beautiful grounds to explore as well. We can’t wait to come back and bring our family. Enjoy your trip to Cabbage Island it will be the highlight of your trip!!

Would highly recommend for a fun summer day. Loved the personal attention from making the reservation, to checking in, to the cruise to the island. Would suggest planning early as they fill up months ahead. Board in pier area of Booth Bay (I’d recommend sitting on the right or port side on the way out). It’s a leisurely cruise out to the island, now owned by two brothers. The captain points about beautiful homes, light houses and osprey nests along the way. When you arrive on the island you can choose to sit inside or out. We sat down by where they cook the lobsters Lee by third generation nephew whose been summering there for almost 30 years. Loved all their stories but mostly the true curtesy and kindness of everyone. Food is excellent- fresh steamed lobster, oysters, corn on the cob, baked potato, an onion, and a hard boiled egg - not saying why - you have to ask. Dessert is blue berry cake. Perfect for groups, family fun day or couples. Yard games to play…just a throw back to a perfect Mainer afternoon

If you're in Boothbay this is a must do. They meet up at Pier 6 I catch a ferry ride over to the island. Cabbage island is owned by Two Brothers for the last 30 plus years oh, they personally meet you at the dock. This is was a wonderful experience. The cost is well worth the right over and the two lobsters that you yet not to mention the best corn I have had on this trip

Yes, it's a "clam bake" but just as much a "lobster fest." This is loads of fun. A nearly hour long tour of the harbor by boat on the way to Cabbage Island. 2 + hours on the island including the two-lobster, clam, and more picnic. You won't come back hungry. Be sure to reserve well in advance. We were put on a wait list and got lucky there was a cancellation. They told us they were completely booked for 12 straight days in July.

From the time we checked in at the ticket counter to stepping onto the dock at the end of our trip, we just kept saying how amazing this experience was. Every single person we came in contact with was friendly, helpful, and kind. It was obvious they loved what they did and were committed to helping everyone have an A+ experience. The boat trip out was beautiful, the island was even more beautiful....(there's plenty to keep the kids occupied). The food was delicious! Thank you so much!

A must if you are near Boothbay Harbor! Wayne and Bob Moore personally greeted each visitor as they arrived then visited with each family while on the island. Every family member and staff made us feel welcome. Come hungry! The food was amazing and unlike anything else you can get at the restaurants. Wear your walking shoes because there are plenty of short trails you can take to explore the entire island.

I have been taking my wife and grand daughter to Cabbage Island for many years and I live right here in Maine. For the money it can't be beat. The meal is absolutely fabulous and the Moore family are a really nice down to earth bunch. Save room for the blueberry cake made with real Maine blueberries. It's the best part of the meal and that's saying a lot.

Narrated boat tour from a lovely ME harbor around stunning ocean scenery, to an island where they’re cooking seafood over wood-fired pans of water, & served by legit friendly folks. This was a gem back +40 years ago when previous owners had it & is now. This is Maine neatly packaged in a great four hour present!

This was truly a wonderful experience! The boat ride to the island was very informative and relaxing. The food served at the clambake was the best seafood I have had in a very long time. The taste and quantity was excellent. The staff is also very nice and accommodating. I highly recommend this experience!!
