Shuck and savour succulent oysters fresh out of the sea and off the BBQ while surrounded by stunning views and a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere.

Described as a 'must-do' near Auckland, it's more than just a tour; it's an irregular adventure filled with laughter, learning, and the freshest Mahurangi oysters you'll ever taste.

All enjoyed in the company of our fabulous guides (mermelliers) and fellow oyster enthusiasts (ostreaphiles).

we'd love to talk about making your oyster experience awesome

“An experience to add to your memories. The greeting onto the boat made one feel like we were long-time friends with the hosts. Their guests were their focus and pampered all of us during the time on board.

Not only did we learn how to shuck oysters the farmers' way, but we got to eat them as well! We also learnt about oyster farming, and different species of oysters, all in the middle of the farm. 

If you are nearby and want to fill in a couple of hours, try this, you don't have to be an oyster eater to enjoy the experience. Others will eat what you shuck if you don't.”
