Cabbage Island, Boothbay Harbor

(4.8/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Embark an exciting culinary adventure at Cabbage Island, renowned for its tradition of clambakes. Start with a boat tour of Boothbay Harbor out to the island, where a huge meal of Maine lobsters and clams awaits. This specialty is traditionally cooked in seaweed, steamed, and covered in rocks to preserve the flavor. The feast includes two lobsters, white clams, corn on the cob, onion, and potatoes--and it wouldn't be complete without a cup of fish chowder and blueberry cake for dessert. Extend your stay on the island if you wish, where you can join other guests at fishing and horseshoes. With our international travel planner, Boothbay Harbor attractions like Cabbage Island can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
