Lobsters typically cost between $57 and $78, depending on where you order and what size you want. Here’s a quick breakdown of some of our favorite lobster companies.

Most online customers order four lobsters. We will use that amount as our reference point for a ballpark range. You will generally pay between $150-$210 for four fresh 1.25 lb lobsters, plus the cost of shipping. For 1.5 lb lobsters, costs can range between $120-$310. If you order 2 lb, you may spend between $160-$330. The ranges also fluctuate by season. Make sure to shop around and do price comparisons before making purchases. It helps to review any company’s shipping practices in your region. You may encounter additional fees or even limitations if you do not live in easily accessible areas.

Size, in particular, dictates how much you will pay for mail order lobster. The number of lobsters you order will also influence the shipping price. Companies in some cases may provide a slight discount based on how many lobsters you order. Selecting certain delivery days of the week will change the cost. Weekend deliveries in particular tend to cost more and are highly popular among customers. The same reasoning applies for the turnaround time. Shipping fees will differ when you order overnight versus a two-day delivery option.
