Highlights

Experience the magic of Martha’s Vineyard oysters first hand! Learn about where and how oysters are grown and meet the people behind their story. This tour combines oyster education, a farm tour, oyster tastings and a little mischief sailing to our farm aboard the beautiful wooden boat.

Guests will meet at the dock of Pirate Adventures Martha’s Vineyard. Once we set sail, we will dive into a talk with a biologist from the Martha’s Vineyard Shellfish Group to learn about shellfish and what aquaculture is all about. At Cottage City Oyster farm, brothers Dan and Greg Martino will introduce us to their nursery and how they grow, care for and harvest their oysters (and we get to see the process in action). Our adventure is topped off with a shucking demo of fresh oysters, a sampling of oysters and a sunset sail through the Nantucket Sound and back to the Oak Bluffs Harbor.
