Oyster Experience

For those slightly less adventurous and not keen on a boat cruise, (or those just simply too tight for time) but would still love to learn and ... deep breath ... taste an oyster, then the Oyster Experience is just for you!

This is a hands on, indoor (and so all-weather), oyster demonstration, where you learn all about this famous delicacy, have a go at "shucking" or opening an oyster and tasting the difference between the wild and cultivated varieties.

The Oyster Experience is also perfect for large groups on tour and school groups. Please contact us for availability and further catering options.

The demonstration is conducted on Thesen Island, and includes 2 oysters per person (one wild and one cultivated), subject to availability. A "The World is Your Oyster" Activity Sheet is provided for junior school groups, and an "Oyster Fact Sheet" is provided for senior school groups.

Drinks and snacks are not provided on this educational, but guests are welcome to purchase drinks from the bar at the restaurant and bring them along. We can also arrange for a table reservation for guests at one of the many on Thesen Island restaurants when the educational has ended.
