Comox Harbour Boat Tours

Deep Water Oyster Farm Tours  $88 pp

More trips will be scheduled soon

Oyster farm tours will start in June 2018, during the Shellfish festival and are sold out. We will try and do some more Oyster Farm Tours in September, when the cooler weather makes for better oysters.  On these trips we visit a floating deep water oyster farm to learn about this eco friendly operation.  Hollie Wood Oysters is an extraordinary company that is totally into sustainable aquaculture.  On the trip back to Comox we will sample some of their fresh product prepared by the Chef on-board.  Like our Facebook page, and you will be the first to be notified when new events come up for sale.
