The Ultimate Guide to Lobster in Boothbay Harbor

One of the first things people often associate with Maine is lobster and for good reason. This coastal state is known as the largest producer of lobster in the country. There’s plenty of ways to enjoy this crustacean during your stay at Newagen Seaside Inn. When planning out your itinerary, be sure to leave time to explore the lobster trade and dining experiences in Boothbay Harbor and the surrounding towns.

Where to Get Up Close with Lobsters

While many people have seen lobsters ready to eat, not everyone can say they’ve seen them coming out of the waters. For a full Maine Lobster experience, go on a lobster trap haul with a local company like Cap’n Fish. For over 50 years, this cruise service has been teaching visitors about how lobsters are caught, traps are hauled, and about Maine’s lobster industry history.
