About Oyster Farm Tours - Coffin Bay
Experience the pristine clear waters, pure fresh air and creamy salty taste of Coffin Bay Oysters on our Oyster Farm Tour.

Wading out through the beautiful waters of the picturesque Coffin Bay, you’ll be seated on our semi-submerged ‘Salt Water Pavilion’ which is situated right in a working commercial Oyster Farm. You’ll get to see baby oysters, learn about how oysters grow, have a hands on lesson to shuck your very own oysters, and best of all get to taste them fresh out of the water, an oyster lover’s dream come true. An up-close and personal experience with the Oyster Farmer himself, and a once-in-a-lifetime culinary adventure. .

Coffin Bay oysters are some of the best in South Australia and this guided tour offers a completely unique experience. Wade out into the water to watch the oysters being harvested, learn all about oyster farming from the farmers, and have a go at shucking oysters. Finish by tasting fresh-from-the-ocean Pacific and Angasi Oysters, accompanied by a glass of Champagne or a delicious seafood platter (depending on tour option selected).

Hi there. The Oyster farm tour at 11.00 goes for about an hour. The seafood tasting experience goes for 2 hours from 4.00pm to 6.00pm. Depending on the tide we either wade out or boat ride to the pontoon.
