140 or so people are shuttled to Cabbage Island about 30 minutes out, 15 minutes back. Once on the Island there is some time to walk around before the chowder then the clams and lobster. Fun trip, great food, nice staff.

A must see experience esp if lobster experience more than just lobster. Old school boat ride and picnic style group trip. Traditional steamed lobster and clams prepared the same as 1950's.

Are there other foods to eat as we are not seafood people? Trying to figure out if this attraction is worth it because of the food factor

They do offer BBQ chicken as alternative and I think it is a smaller charge. Hope this helps
