Join us for a private tour of the shellfish facility at Shellfisher Preserve. Visit the Noank hatchery, nursery and grow-out operations and learn how the shellfish are spawned indoors, become microscopic shellfish larvae, and eventually grow to be the Peconic Pearls oysters you love to eat!

During the second half of the tour, Captain Libby Koch will take you for a boat ride aboard the Category 1 for a tour of the shellfish cultivation areas in Southold Bay. Weather permitting, guests can rest on the beach near the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County’s grow-out site.

The tour ends with an oyster tasting (feel free to bring along your own alcoholic beverage for pairing). Weather permitting, tastings will take place by the bay. In this half-day experience, you and your party will learn about shellfish cultivation, water quality issues that affect the bay, and stewardship of the estuary. Peconic Pearls are grown to look pretty, to taste great, and best of all to raise proceeds for projects benefiting the Peconic Estuary.  Tickets are very limited, so book a tour today!
