Coffin Bay Oyster Farm & Bay Tour - No Oysters - Inc Wading Experience

Cruise 16km aboard CB01 to an oyster farm surrounded by crystal clear turquoise waters.
Along the journey you'll experience all the beauty of the pristine Coffin Bay coastline including stunning views of secluded islands, pillowy beaches & witness pods of dolphins playing in the water alongside the oyster vessel (sightings cannot be guaranteed but are highly likely).
Once we arrive you'll instantly discover the beauty & vastness of the world famous, prime growing oyster farms & be amazed by the crystal clear waters which surround them.

Now is your opportunity to wade among the oyster beds...!
Waders are provided so you can become fully immersed in the oyster farm & discover all of its beauty up close at your own leisure.
After the tour we retreat to the boat to indulge in some freshly shucked oysters that can accompanied by a variety of local beverages which are available to purchase.
While you sit back & relax your host, a veteran oyster farmer, will share with you the history of oyster farming including how world class oysters are produced in Coffin Bay. You'll also learn how to shuck like a pro!
Before we return to Coffin Bay we have one more stop to make. We cruise past the Coffin Bay national park to Brother's Islands which is infamous for herds of seals. These beautiful creatures love lazing on the rocks of this remote island (sightings cannot be guaranteed but are highly likely).
From here we take our time travelling back to the Coffin Bay marina so you can soak in every element of the beautiful, remote, Coffin Bay waterways.
Important Information:
Minimum Numbers - We require a minimum of 4 people for this tour to operate. At the time of your booking you will be notified whether minimum numbers have been met.
If minimum numbers have not been met you will be notified once they have. Alternatively you will be notified that minimum numbers have not been met & the tour will not be proceeding (this scenario is unlikely however if it occurs you will be issued a full refund or you will have the option to move your booking to an alternate date).
Additionally if our schedule is not showing a particular day, time or tour that you are interested in please contact us & we will try to accommodate your request.
Checkin - Tour checkin time is strictly 15 minutes prior to you tour start time at the boat at berth 5 Coffin Bay Yacht Club floating jetty. The boat departs at the tour start time so please don't be late as we would hate for you to miss the boat. We can't wait unfortunately.
Tides & Weather - If a high tide or poor weather conditions prevent us from wading at the oyster lease, the wading experience will take place at Kellidie Bay, a stunning secluded beach engulfed with turquoise waters in the wider prime growing oyster region.
Tour Duration - Tour duration is an approximate only. If your tour finishes a little early it is only because of less numbers on board that day or weather has allowed us to finish everything a little quicker than normal.
What to Bring - We recommend you pack sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, a towel & camera (you are definitely going to want to capture this experience!) plus bathers if you prefer to swim then wade.
The weather can also quickly turn on the water, even when fine, sunny conditions are forecast, so we always advise bringing a warm jacket & beanie.
Minors - Children 0-4yrs must be strictly supervised by their parents at all times.
We welcome children & infants on our tours. We find that most children are really curious about oysters, how they’re grown, the oyster boat & all of the exciting marine life we encounter along the way. Plus love jumping on mum & dad's shoulders while they wade in the water...! However our skippers talk is approximately 20-30mins long which is generally not of interest to little ones. Therefore we recommend parents bring a quiet activity for this part of the tour (an iPad with head phones is ideal) or an exciting snack to keep the kids entertained during this time.
Alternatively families have the option to sit in the outside seating area during this part of the tour if they’d be more comfortable, which is an ideal location to spot an array of sea-creatures in the oyster farm.
Occasionally we have a few oyster bags to return to the water, if your booking is a special occasion & you don't want this to happen please let us know.
