Only in New England! It’s one of the perks of living in the area: our access to the best, freshest seafood around. Particularly crustaceans and mollusks.
Foxy Travel and FTI Coach plan several of its day trips around your desire to follow your stomach to a clam or lobster bake. Get your fill, have some fun and get there by rolling in luxury.
Foster’s Downeast Clambake on May 18 brings us to York Harbor, ME, for a lobster “in the rough” in a rustic pavilion featuring that Maine hospitality, live entertainment, and of course, an authentic Maine clambake. The trip is a crowd pleaser and includes your choice of one or two lobsters plus steamed clams, cultivated mussels, corn-on-the-cob, roasted red potatoes and onions, and native blueberry cake for dessert. If seafood isn’t your thing, you can choose barbecued chicken as an option instead. FTI makes stops along the way, including Stonewall Kitchen, When Pigs Fly Bakery and Colonial Candies. We get back around 6 p.m. Go here for more information and to book your seat.
Foxy’s “Mystery Trippers” went to Cabbage Island in 2017 and haven’t stopped asking for a return visit. How could we not oblige? The Cabbage Island Clambake trip steams up on June 29. Upon arrival at Cabbage Island, we’ll board the Bennie Alice, embarking on a one-hour narrated tour of Boothbay Harbor, ME. The Bennie Alice docks on Cabbage Island, and then it’s time for the main event: an authentic downeast clambake that includes fish chowder, two lobsters, steamers, potatoes, onion, egg, corn-on-the-cob and blueberry cake. If you don’t want to partake in the seafood offering, there’s a roasted half-chicken option available. Find out more here.
