Pacific Estate Oysters
Pacific Estate Oysters are "paddock to plate" artisans of the ocean. The perfect combination of luxury and adventure. Discover the intense freshness of Oysters grown in serene waters over natural sea-grass meadows.
Love oysters and want to learn more? Pacific Estate Oysters is a working oysters farm on Yorke Peninsula that provides volunteer "crew" experiences.
We offer small group adventures (up to 4 people) where you can get in the water and up close and personal with these delicious creatures. Learn about the history of the oyster industry in South Australia. Learn how these creatures are grown and processed (we have 3 leases on the spit in Oyster Bay - we will visit them all). Learn how to shuck like the professionals and eat oysters straight from the water. You will also get an oyster shucking knife and a dozen to take away with you (practice makes perfect!) Not only that - you get to commune with nature and meet our resident dolphins and seals.
The experience can last up to 2 hours (dependent on tide, wind and weather) and is not suitable for children younger than 12 years.
