2021 Farm tour Update
It is with great sadness that we announce due to the uncertainty of the extent of COVID-19 regulations we are unable to properly plan and prepare for the upcoming season. Therefore, we have decided to cancel our Blue Island Oyster Farm Tours for the Summer of 2021.
If you have purchased an oyster farm tour gift certificate in the past and it is still valid and you would like to instead use it to purchase fresh oysters, clams or Blue Island merchandise from our West Sayville location please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be sure to follow us on social media (@BlueIslandOysters) for continued updates. For now, we plan on re-opening our farm tours for the summer of 2022, however, if anything changes and we open earlier we will be sure to post on social media and send out an email to our subscribers.
Thank you for your continued support. We are looking forward to operations returning to normal and to be back hosting our oyster farm and kayak tours Summer 2022!
