Clam Bakes

Share the opportunity to escape to the unspoiled natural beauty of the Essex River onboard the Essex River Queen I and the Essex River Queen II. Surrounded by fine restaurants, antique shops, working museums and cultural attractions, you’ll cruise through spectacular views of scenic salt marshes rich with unique wildlife. Cruise with us to learn about the history and lore of the Essex area. Our boats allow you to fully enjoy the unspoiled charm of the area rain or shine, all season long. Certified to carry up to 100 passengers at a time, our fleet is fully equipped with restrooms and both boats are covered to protect you from the sun. We can also roll down screens or transparent sides when appropriate. We have plenty of free parking and buses are always welcome. If you’re looking for an enjoyable group outing, we offer a variety of options for all ages. Bring them on one of our scheduled trips or charter our boats for your exclusive use. Include a New England Tidal Beach Clambake or other catering to suit your tastes. Create an effective and fun company outing or celebrate a distinctly unforgettable wedding, rehearsal dinner, birthday or other social occasion. Click here to view our clambake and catering options.
