We all know the directions North, South, East and West. However, you have to have Maine knowledge to know what “DownEast” is. Sailors in the old days described the direction of ships traveling from Maine to Boston or New York as “DownEast”. Of course meaning downwind in the direction of East. DownEast has come to represent a certain area, and the maritime history of independent and strong spirit of the people in the area.
About Our Lobsters
All of our lobsters are hand selected hard-shell and wild caught in Maine daily and are antibiotic free. Once the lobsters have been selected and graded by our team, we keep them healthy by holding them in large tanks that have constant recirculation of cold Maine ocean water. Once it is time for your lobsters to be shipped, we pack them in a cooler with some seaweed (when available) and ice packs to ensure they arrive alive and fresh to your doorstep, within 24 hours.
