Live Maine Lobster is considered the most delicious lobster by many top chefs. Many people enjoy preparing and serving this shellfish for special occasions and backyard get-togethers. Yet, if you do not live in Maine, buying live Maine lobster may prove difficult. You can order it from online seafood stores, and we offer several online order tips to insure you receive actual "live" Maine lobster.


  1. Before ordering live Maine lobster from an online store, do a little research. Use your favorite search engine and enter the store's name plus the word "review" in the search field. Check any listings for bad reviews or poor customer service.
  2. When visiting the store's website, check their "about" page to see how long they have been shipping live Maine lobsters. You certainly do not want to order from a company that does not have experience shipping perishable goods.
  3. Make sure the online store offers a money back guarantee or at least a store credit or re-shipment, if your Maine lobsters do not arrive at your door "live".
  4. Live Maine lobster can survive for several days if they are kept in cool, wet environment. They do not especially need to be submerged in water because they store a certain amount of seawater in their gills. Find the shipping information on the seafood store's website and review it. Make sure the lobsters will be packaged appropriately, so that they Will arrive "live". They need to be shipped overnight, in styrofoam with frozen cold gel packs.
  5. Make sure that the package is able to actually arrive at your door overnight, meaning, if you live in California, make sure you order early enough in the day for the online company to pack and ship the lobsters to arrive overnight from Maine.
  6. When you do order live Maine lobster, make sure you check the shipping information and are aware of the time the order will be delivered to you the next day. Most online seafood stores ship by Overnight FeDex, without signature required. You certainly don't want your order to sit at your front door for hours. Alternatively, you could have the order delivered to your place of work.

Live Maine lobster can be enjoyed by just about anyone in the continental US. It makes a very nice gift for someone special or a great dish for any occasion.
