Lobster Bakes


Enjoy a traditional lobster bake on our beautiful island! Our chef will prepare a delicious meal for lunch or dinner. Depending on the size of your party we will transport your group to the island aboard our boats or through another vendor. Do you have a small group interested in a mid-week lobster bake or sail?  No problem – we collaborate with our friends at the Portland Schooner Company to offer a public “Sails & Tails” experience aboard one of their beautiful schooner’s Bagheera or Wendameen several times a week throughout the summer. Cow Island can accommodate groups up to 160 for these events.
