shipping lobster

I would like to buy some lobster on my way home, but my flight leaves at 8AM on a Tuesday. Any idea on how I can accomplish this?

Suggestion that you order the lobsters and have them shipped. See http://www.acadiainfo.com/trentonbridge.htm

It's a little tight timewise, but you can get them at James L. Hook on the way to the airport. They open at 7 AM. The other alternative is to work with them and get them the night before or have them shipped. Here's their URL: www.jameshooklobster.com/help.php…

I was also thinking Hooks Lobster as well. If your in Boston, you can visit them and tell them when you want them shipped. They have Maine lobsters and the prices are very good.

Thanks for the info. I'll be in Boston May 29-June 2. Still trying to plan my itinerary. So many things to do and see, so little time.....

I also do believe that your box must contain dry ice and not ice cubes. I've brought seafood to Texas packing my box the night before for an early flight. Come to think of it we bought some of those blue ice packs at Walmart and used them. As long as it can't leak like melted ice it's okay.

Does Legal Seafood still pack them for you to carry on? They did, years ago. If so, they're in Terminals A and C. But I haven't seen anyone doing this since 9/11, so I don't know if it's still possible. (NB: It was very expensive, even years ago when the bug itself wasn't.)
