CABBAGE ISLAND: Get onboard the bus for VIP’s Cabbage Island Day Trip! Relax and enjoy your ride up the coast and Sail the Bennie Alice from Pier 6 in Boothbay Harbor to Cabbage Island, a quintessential Maine experience. There you will enjoy a traditional Downeast clambake cooked on the water’s edge. Clambakes are cooked in traditional fashion – steamed over open fires between thick layers of seaweed and covered with tarpaulins to seal in all the great flavor and natural sweetness. After you enjoy your meal, take time to explore the natural beauty of Cabbage Island. Upon returning to the mainland, enjoy a bit of free time in Boothbay Harbor before your trip to Sweetz & More.
