IMPORTANT 2022 UPDATE:
It is with regret that we have been forced, once again, to cancel Schooners Lobster Festival which was planned for Fall 2022. Soaring costs, frustrating supply chain issues and continuing complications posed by Covid, have made it impossible for us to plan the kind of festival everyone has come to expect. However, there are promising signs of progress on the horizon, and we are very optimistic that 2023 will be our year to bring Lobster Festival back to Schooners!
Lobster lovers, behold the biggest lobster tournament and festival in the area! This week-long celebration will bring live music, contests and lots of Florida lobster! With huge Local Lobsters on the weigh-in scales, fresh lobster prepared every mouth-watering way you can imagine, and the annual Schooners Sand Sculpting Contest, it is a HUGE event that draws thousands of divers and lobster fans from all over the Southeast. Lobster Tournament divers will be competing in a variety of categories including Spiny Lobster, Shovelnose Lobster and Big 6.
