shuck & savour
~ a great day out up north ~

Hands-on Experience

You want to eat ‘em? You’ve got to shuck ‘em first! We let you get up close and personal with our oysters.

Fresh Oyster Tasting

Shuck ‘em, then eat ‘em. There’s nothing like our oysters. Fresh or BBQ’d - we’ve turned sceptics into fans.

Incredible Scenery

Scotts Landing is our own slice of heaven. Enjoy the stunning views of the clear blue Kiwi water all year round.

We love sharing our oyster knowledge with our guests almost as much as we love eating fresh oysters.

Fresh oysters are like nothing you’ve ever tasted before. If you think you know oysters - you’ve not tried ours. People who hate oysters try ours and wonder why they’ve wasted all those years.

Saltwater Workshop has been farming oysters on the Mahurangi Harbour since 1991, and we’ve been running oyster farm tours on the Shuckleferry since 2013.

These are the freshest oysters you’ll find North of Auckland, and they're an experience that is totally Kiwi in our best irregular way.

what about tour Accessibility?

We welcome all, but please note the limitations of wheelchair access. Our guests need to be able to walk from the pontoon onto the boat. We can assist wheelchairs onto the pontoon.

what if I have dietary requirements?

Don't hesitate to inform us about dietary restrictions. If you give us enough notice, we can cater to a range of special requirements. If you have a serious shellfish allergy, we suggest this tour is not for you, as our guests will be handling and eating oysters. Other food will be available for those who’d rather not try oysters.
