“Do this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2011

The Cabbage Island Clambake was delightful! Have been to Boothbay Harbor many times, but never heard of this -- until I checked TripAdvisor.

Highly recommend it. Lovely boat trip, gracious hosts, wonderful clambake. Don't miss it.

“Awesome Maine Experience!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2011

Ditto all of the positve remarks below.
The tour of the harbor was great. Very informative. The weather was perfect on the day we went. We took the 5:00 tour which ended with an aweasome sunset as we sat on the rocks and took it all in. The food was plentiful and delicious. We were stuffed only to see them arrive with an oversized slice of blueberry cake.Yum! Yum ! Yum! The Moore family is wonderful. Very, very friendly and personable. The hospitality was great. We are going to take every friend and family member that comes to Maine for a visit. Great time! Say hi to Bob anf Wayne...and Lucas, if his seashell shop is open! :)

“Gets better each and every time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2011

How good is the Cabbage Island experience? It’s so good that even though we don’t eat seafood we return year after year after year! Yes the main meal is lobsters and clams, but for those of us who do not partake, we order the optional baked chicken that comes with all the trimmings of the seafood meal, and we enjoy it! We have been out to the island in beautiful sunny weather, rain, fog, heat and wind; each time we enjoy it more! The scenery is beautiful, the staff the friendliest around, the food delicious and plentiful and the island atmosphere unlike anything you would get in downtown Boothbay Harbor. We have brought my parents, sisters and their families, friends, etc. Everyone has a wonderful time and says the lobsters are the best around. On top of it all – wonderful hospitality from the Moore family – year after year! Can’t wait for summer of 2011!

“This is a must do!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2010

We did the Cabbage Island trip after a recommendation from a co-worker. The trip starts with a 45 minute boat tour and ends with an absolute feast! The lobsters were sweet and delicious! The family that runs the tour were extremely nice and hospitable. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants a great taste of Maine!

“Best value on the coast of Maine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2010

I've lived in Maine my whole life and never heard of Cabbage Island. This is an experience everyone who lives and visits Maine should try at least once. The 1-hour ferry narrated ferry tour is excellent and the shore dinner is plentiful and tasty. It was so much fun! I highly recommend it!
