    The town is wonderfully atmospheric, as you will see driving along the charming waterfront and through the heritage districts.

    Become an expert on oysters, especially the prized Malpeque variety from Prince Edward Island, by visiting a local oyster farm and sampling its fresh, succulent bi-valves.

    Fishermen in dories have harvested the famous Malpeque oyster the same way for generations—using a set of long wooden tongs to bring the succulent shellfish from the bottom of the local rivers and bays to the surface. John Gillis has been harvesting oysters his entire life and loves nothing better than sharing his passion and knowledge with visitors.

Then, you'll be shown how to safely shuck oysters and you can try your hand at opening few. Of course you’ll also get to eat some of the freshest oysters you’ve ever tasted!

On the way back to the seaport, you’ll follow a different route providing some beautiful views of the coastline.

    Following a delightful visit of approximately 2-hours, you will transfer back to the pier where your tour concludes.
