NEW ZEALAND OYSTER FARM TOURS
Departing Scott's Landing, nestled in the Mahurangi Harbour we cruise to the Historic G Browne Bay. Rich in history, the first area of oyster farming started in NZ, the bay still thrives with Oyster farms growing the popular Pacific Oyster species.
90 Minute Full Shucking Experience
Public and Private Tours available
We take you to the centre of the farm, teach the way these salty bivalves are caught, grown, the daily life of an oyster farmer and ultimately eaten!
Collecting fresh oysters straight from the water, it's your turn to "shuck"
The skipper will teach you how to open, then you have a go yourself. We even cook some on the BBQ!
Once finished eating as many as you seem content and with the tide flowing back in covering over the farm, we head back to Scott's Landing cruising shallow sheltered bays and enjoying the beauty of the harbour.
BYO beer or wine welcome

Oyster farmers have the sea ingrained in them, and we love to showcase our little piece of paradise called the Mahurangi Harbour. From the 1960’s the Pacific Oyster (Crassostrea Gigas) have been farmed in the inter-tidal zones of the nutrient rich sheltered bays giving our oysters a fresh, sweet flavor.
