TOUR: Visit an Oyster Farm by Kayak or SUP

oyster kayaking

The guys at Blue Island Oyster Company, which was featured in our Winter 2014 issue, are making blue-sky thinking an art form. How does the idea of a kayak or stand-up paddleboard tour of their Great South Bay oyster farm grab you? Adventurers paddle through the shallows of the bay off Captree Island right up to the racks where genuine Blue Point oysters are growing. You will harvest your own oysters, learn to shuck them and then slurp the freshest oysters you have ever tasted. A hearty seasonal lunch, along with local craft beers and wines will be served. Warm sunshine and fresh air, a brisk workout and fresh oysters…all right in your own backyard (wouldn’t this be a great gift?).  For further information, contact Kevin Joseph, Blue Island Oyster Company’s sales and marketing director at 631.563.1330 or
