Watch Lobster’s and steamers be prepared in seaweed in real “Downeast” tradition at waters edge!
Your Downeast Clambake adventure begins with a scenic tour of Boothbay Harbor aboard the Bennie Alice, en route to Cabbage Island in Linekin Bay. There a succulent feast of Maine lobsters and clams with all the traditional fixin’s await you. Cabbage Island has been the home of traditional clambakes since 1956, and your hosts, the Moore family, cordially welcome you to experience this “Downeast” tradition! The Original Downeast Clambake of Boothbay Harbor is cooked in seaweed, steamed from top to bottom, covered with tarpaulins and rocks in order to capture all the flavor and sweetness of fresh Maine lobsters and clams. This authentic meal includes a steaming cup of traditional New England Fish Chowder, two luscious bright red lobsters, tender white steamed clams wrapped in foil, sweet golden corn on the cob, onion, and new Maine potatoes. For dessert, you will love our famous Blueberry Cake with hot fresh coffee or iced tea.
