The Lobster Dip was the first winter dip in Maine , started by the Portland Rugby Club 23 years ago. The dip was originally held at East End Bathing Beach in Portland but grew so much over the years that a new location had to be found. Old Orchard has become the perfect spot with plenty of Beach front space and showers and restrooms available in the Hotel. Immediately following the dip there will be a post dip party at the Ocean Side Grille with live music and plenty of complimentary food and beverages for the dippers. (Cash bar also available) Each dipper is asked to raise a minimum of $100 in order to participate. Plenty of incentives available for different levels of fundraising for individuals, and a grand prize for the top fundraising team. Challenge your friends, family and co-workers! Come by yourself or form a team. Costumes encouraged.

Too chicken to dip? You can still take part. We offer a chicken dip for those too chicken to go in. You must still fundraise, however, instead of jumping in the ocean you can enjoy yourself by a warm fire in our chicken coop. Dress like a chicken for added fun!

This is a really fun way to start off the New Year! We are looking for individuals or teams to jump in to the icy waters of the Atlantic on January 1st at Noon sharp to raise money for Special Olympics Maine . Hope to see you there.

Special Olympics is a year round athletic training and competition program for persons with intellectual disabilities of all ages. In Maine there are over 3300 athletes who participate.
