Oyster Farm and Kayak Tours


Update 5/11/20

We regret to state that at this time we have decided due to the effect that COVID-19 has had on our business that we will be canceling our Summer 2020 farm tours in order to be able to focus on restructuring our oyster wholesale operation and getting that back to normal.

If you have purchased an oyster farm tour gift certificate and would like to instead use it to purchase anything from our online store please email events@blueislandoysters.com and we’ll be glad to convert that over to a merchandise gift certificate that you can use to make purchases online. (Farm tour gift certificate codes will NOT work in our online store until they are manually entered.)

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 2021.
