This tour was great fun, from the time we put on our waders until we could wander around and take a closer look of the farm. It was very relaxed. It was great tasting the oysters and then having a go at shucking them. I...More

Family of 6 (12,10,7 &5) experienced this tour. Was really good, I found learning about the oyster industry really interesting and so did the kids. Learning to shuck your own and tasting straight from the ocean is such a great experience! Thanks again! Would recommend...More

This was definitely an Absolute Highlight for our trip to Coffin Bay region: - Freshest Oysters imagineable - Knowledgable, Friendly, Helpful Hosts - Beautiful Setting - Glass of South Australia ‘Bubbles’ to round it off...Need I say more, a MUST for anyone visiting the area.

Really enjoyed the information about the Oysters and sitting out on the water. $40 for the tour only includes 4 oysters per person which is we feel is a bit tight. The $10 Reisling upgrade seems an obvious choice with seafood, but a small glass...More

Hi there. The Oyster farm tour at 11.00 goes for about an hour. The seafood tasting experience goes for 2 hours from 4.00pm to 6.00pm. Depending on the tide we either wade out or boat ride to the pontoon.
