Wonderful would highly recommend! If we ever get back to the area will definitely go again! The trip to the island was entertaining and informative. The Moore’s were great hosts and their helpers were excellent.

Amazing experience, delicious food, highly recommend!!
Aug. 2021 • Couples
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!!

Third time to Cabbage Island. Always a treat visiting the Moore family & enjoying the Lobster feast they prepare! They are welcoming & just lovely. A must on your visit to Maine. Book early...they fill up quickly.

A meal you will never forget!
Aug. 2021
From the boat ride to the Blueberry Cake was amazing! The Island is beautiful. Now that I have had Lobster cooked on the Island, absolutely nothing will top it. I suggest prioritizing what you want to eat the most and start there. Then be sure to taste everything else and save room to at least a few bites of the cake. The island is beautiful with plenty of room to explore and even enjoy some outdoor games. The operation ran timely and with precision. The hosts were amazing. This was the highlight of our time at Boothbay Harbor!

Relaxing, fun day
Aug. 2021 • Couples
Great day on the water and our first clambake ever. Wish someone had told us how to eat clams . Did not know to get the sand off by dipping them in water then pulling their hat off . We thought it was a finger bowl to rinse in after the wonderful lobster .
Would love to be able to split one meal! Great island. Very relaxing and peaceful. Chill time for sure.

Blueberry cake for the win!
Aug. 2021 • Friends
This would have been 5 out of 5, but there were a few hiccups prior to boarding. First, they raised the prices prior to arrival, and most of our family had exact cash, also, one member had chicken and they charger her for a lobster. When we tried to address this the girl at the counter was extremely rude and told us “nothing I can do, NEXT”

That’s the deduction! The boat ride is beautiful and you see two lighthouses! The island itself is small but beautiful. The family who own and run the clambake were some of the most kind and caring people I’ve ever met. They came around to each table and chatted about almost anything. It was really cool! There was SO MUCH FOOD! You will not leave hungry! Although we are still curious about the boiled onion. We took a small hike on island while waiting, and the thing that made the entire day….. BLUEBERRY CAKE! Omg! I don’t like cake…… I could have eaten the entire cake!
Over all, it was a great day with family! We had a great time!

Authentic Maine Experience

I love bringing guests and family to Cabbage Island. The cruise, food, scenery and service are spectacular. It's a great value. I never tired of sharing my Maine culture through the lens of Cabbage Island.

Best New England Experience
Aug. 2021
Truly one of the best things I've done since moving to New England. Everything was smooth and it was an incredible experience. The directions to the ticket booth are clear, the staff were super nice and helpful, and there were plenty of things to do around Boothbay Harbor to pass the time leading up to when the boat left the port. We boarded right on time, the boat was roomy, the bar was stocked full, and the tour on the way to the island was great! Funny, too. Once at the island, there were PLENTY of places to sit at a table and so many chairs and places to sit to relax when not eating. We lucked out and had beautiful weather with an incredible breeze. The staff were attentive the entire time, making sure everyone had everything that they needed. The food was incredible and we had plenty of time to eat everything, walk around and relax a bit, and then got back on the boat back to the harbor. Truly a unique experience and one that I can't wait to do again with more family and friends. The owners really do take the time to go around to every single group more than once and we did not board the boat until they were down there waiting to thank each and every one of us. That really stuck with me. Well worth the money, a beautiful way to spend an afternoon!!

Cabbage Island "A Taste of New England"
Aug. 2021
It is a fun experience. The food is good although the clambake is really steamed and does not have all the ingredients we are used to having ie, sausage, hot dogs, chourico. There were a lot of bees around. Love the boat ride over to the island. The tour of the harbor and history is awesome.
