Real Maine Lobster Package
Want an authentic Maine Lobster experience?
If you love lobsters and want to walk in the boots of a lobsterman for a day than the Berry Manor Inn has an exclusive lobster experience that you will not get any where else! 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 first lobster roll was actually invented. This exclusive package is available July through September, Monday through Friday with a 2-night stay.
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 if you choose you can get down and dirty and help the Captain set the traps. After the boat trip you will head to one of the area’s oldest working lobster pounds where we have set up an exclusive behind the scene tour for our guests. You will shadow the wharf manager who helps the lobstermen unload the boats, sorts and stores the lobsters to be shipped to Boston and will answer all of your questions about bait choices and how they prepare those newly caught lobsters for market. End your afternoon by enjoying a freshly caught lobster dinner with all of the fixings right at a picnic table on the wharf next door. This is an exclusive opportunity for our guests for a “lobster immersion” and is only available Monday through Friday with advanced reservations.
A Real Maine Lobster Luxury Package added to your 2-night stay in the room of your choice includes:
- Two tickets for Capt. Jack’s Lobster Adventure cruise
- Two “Got Lobstah” t-shirts to commemorate the day
- Two tickets to a behind the scenes exclusive tour of a working lobster pound
- Lobster Meal for two at picnic tables on the dock
- Souvenir stuffed lobster to take home with you to remind you of the lobster fun you had!
