Oyster Farm & Kayak Tour Info 

Only 50 miles east of Manhattan, Blue Island Oyster Farm offers a tour full of adventure and fun on the beautiful Great South Bay. The setting is beautiful and serene with gorgeous views of the Fire Island Lighthouse. There is no other place quite like it, anywhere: warm sunshine, fresh air and breathtaking views. 

Our tour includes the following and lasts approximately 3 hours

  • A traditional New England lobster roll picnic lunch with dessert. 
  • Enjoy lots of farm fresh Blue Island oysters.
  • Guided kayak eco-tour around our oyster farm, the surrounding back meadows and wilderness.
  • Provide your own beverages and our friendly staff will be sure to keep your glasses full. 
  • Learning the history, biology & geography of oysters, as well as the tools and tactics of oyster farming and how our “Island Dock” and Oyster Farm works.
