Imagine wading out into an oyster lease, shucking fresh oysters plucked right from the ocean, and tucking into said oysters with a glass of wine, while you’re seated in the water where they were harvested.
Head to Coffin Bay, one of the most beautiful parts of South Australia, and you can do exactly that. And you’ll barely even get wet!
Oyster Farm Tours offers up the unique experience, with daily tours. On the tours you don waders and head out into the water, where you sit partly-submerged on their salt water pavilion.
Then you’ll be treated to a fascinating tour about oysters, the industry, farming techniques, the area, and all-importantly, an oyster-shucking lesson.
And then, you can sit back and eat amazingly fresh oysters straight from the ocean, and down it with a glass of your favourite wine or beer.
Tours depart from Oyster HQ, their brand new light-filled tourism centre, right over the water in the bay. You can linger there before or after a tour, and graze on fresh local seafood.
Tours operate daily, and they also offer hotel pickup and return transport options.
But if you’re planning a trip, book early as spots are limited.
