Event description

Description

Come for the unique and exciting experience of a tour of our oyster farm in Ninigret Pond!

Our tours begin at Ninigret Landing marina; the hub of oyster aquaculture in Rhode Island, supporting the daily workings of six individual farms. Here you will be able to see the beginning nursery stage of an oysters life. You will be met at the dock by one of our work boats as we board the boat. After a short ride across the pond you will arrive at our lease site. On the farm you are able to get a first hand look at the operation, see oysters in the many stages of growth, and get answers to all questions to be had about oysters. During the warmer months feel free to get into the water for an even closer look at the operation. On the ride back to the marina guests will enjoy fresh shucked oysters along with local refreshments.


Tours run weekly on Thursday and Friday, departing the marina at 6:00pm.

Tours last approximately 1.5 hours. All tours are weather and wind dependent.

Our boat can accommodate up to 6 guests, but arrangements for larger groups can be made.
