Sorry folks – Maine’s scallop season has ended, but the good news is, it’ll reopen December 1. I’ll be shipping again then.
Congratulations on finding Downeast Dayboat. We’re a small business that delivers the very best seafood available. One reason our seafood is so amazing is where it comes from: the cold, clear waters of the Gulf of Maine. But another reason is how it gets to you: unlike other seafood purveyors, we don’t have a warehouse full of inventory – our seafood stays in the ocean until you order it.
Our scallops come from dayboat fishermen, meaning they return home within 24 hours of setting out. This means their products come ashore within hours, unlike “trip boats” that often store their catch for a week or more at a time. And at Downeast Dayboat, we make sure their catch is on its way to you within 24 hours of harvest so you can taste the difference a day makes®.
If you’ve never tasted a Downeast Dayboat scallop, you’ve never tasted a scallop. There’s as much difference between these scallops and “regular” scallops as there is between rock hard winter tomatoes and ruby red tomatoes ripened by the August sun. So go ahead and order – I can’t wait to show you what you’ve been missing.
