Want an authentic Lobster experience?

Learn all about Maine’s favorite crustacean from the “trap to your lap” in Rockland Maine, the self-proclaimed “Lobster Capital of the World”.  Rockland is home to the Maine Lobster Festival (August); Lobsterpalooza (September); the original Lobster Trap Christmas Tree featured on the TLC Channel; and where the lobster roll was actually invented!  If you love lobsters than the Berry Manor Inn has just the package for you!

Start your day going out with a real Maine Lobsterman aboard the Capt. Jack lobster boat and learn all about setting traps, the rules of lobstering, the difference between soft and hard shelled lobsters, male and female lobsters and what’s with all of those different colored buoys! You can sit back and watch or get down and dirty and help the Captain set the traps.

Then on to a working lobster pound where you will enjoy an exclusive behind the scenes tour to learn what the process is for preparing those newly caught lobsters for market at one of the area’s oldest lobster pounds and end your afternoon by enjoying a freshly caught lobster dinner with all of the fixings right at a picnic table on the wharf. Ahhh, life is good!

Your lobster fantasy day ends with locally made lobster chocolates at turndown!
