Oyster Farm and Tasting Tour

Book Now
The stunning coastline of the Eyre Peninsula has a reputation for being Australia’s Seafood hot-spot. Fresh seafood is in abundance along this coastline, and in the picturesque town of Coffin Bay, it’s the Oysters that are the hero. Coffin Bay is renowned for Oysters in restaurants around Australia, and the interest from visitors wanting to learn how the Oysters are harvested has been the catalyst in creating these tours.

This is truly a once in a lifetime seafood dining experience, and the only tour of its kind in the world where you can sit in the water and taste fresh oysters straight out of the sea!

Oyster Farm Tours - Coffin Bay
Climb into waterproof waders and hear from Ben, the Oyster Farmer himself, who will be your tour guide for the day. He will lead you into the water, pour you a glass of wine, and tell you a few stories about Oysters, and Coffin Bay.
Taste the freshest and most famous Coffin Bay Oysters you've ever tasted, straight out of the water!

Wading out through the beautiful waters of the picturesque Coffin Bay, you’ll climb aboard our semi-submerged ‘Salt Water Pavilion’ which is situated right in a working commercial Oyster Farm. You’ll get to see how oysters grow, see baby oysters, learn how to shuck your very own oysters, and best of all get to taste them fresh out of the water, a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
