Travel to an oyster farm just outside the township of Coffin Bay. Along the journey you'll experience beautiful Coffin Bay coastal & township views plus learn the history of oyster farming & visit the first ever oyster lease in Coffin Bay.
While you sit back & relax your host, a veteran oyster farmer, will share with you the history of oyster farming. Including how premium Coffin Bay oysters are produced & what it is about the pristine Coffin Bay waterways that makes oysters world renowned. Plus we'll teach you how to shuck like a pro!
You'll witness pods of dolphins playing in the water alongside the boat as they follow us on our journey (sightings cannot be guaranteed but are highly likely).
Locally produced wines, beers & gin are available to purchase which are the perfect accompaniment to a plate of freshly shucked oysters direct from the source.
With so much to see & do in Coffin Bay we know that some visitors only have limited time to experience every aspect of the region & that's why we created the Short & Sweet tour. However for those wanting to take their oyster tour experience to the next level & wade in sandy bottom oyster farm surrounded by turquoise blue waters we highly recommend checking out our other Farm & Bay tour.
We welcome children & infants on our tours. We find that most children are really curious about oysters, how they’re grown, the oyster boat & all of the exciting marine life we encounter along the way. Plus love jumping on mum & dad's shoulders while they wade in the water...! However our skippers talk is approximately 20-30mins long which is generally not of interest to little ones. Therefore we recommend parents bring a quiet activity for this part of the tour (an iPad with head phones is ideal) or an exciting snack to keep the kids entertained during this time.
Alternatively families have the option to sit in the outside seating area during this part of the tour if they’d be more comfortable, which is an ideal location to spot an array of sea-creatures in the oyster farm.
Occasionally we have a few oyster bags to return to the water, if your booking is a special occasion & you don't want this to happen please let us know.
