We had never heard of the Cabbage Island Clambake, until friends suggested it. They were right in their reviews, wonderful excursion! You must stand outside the boat to hear about the history of the area, as inside the speakers were garbled. Wonderful one hour ride to the island with many photo opps. As you disembark you are greeted by the Moore brothers and young members of their family who make you feel welcome. We noticed people running and followed them to the area where the food was being prepared. At this spot we found an abundance of picnic tables spread out on a grassy area overlooking the water. We sat with other friendly couples, many who had visited before. Very organized. First we received drinks and after 15min. the chowder was served. We had enough time to talk and digest our chowder before the main meal. A horn sounds and everyone lines up near the pit to receive their trays of food. What an abundance....one dozen clams, 2 whole lobsters, baked potatoe, corn on the cob, grilled onion, hard boiled egg, butter and water(to wash off clams). The lobster meat was sweet and succulent! Hard to believe that after all that, you are served a ginormous piece of blueberry cake. We took our desert to go! Plenty of time to discover the beauty of the island. The family has property and lives on the island in season. A must do when visiting Maine.
