Explore Maine’s Aquaculture: Hands-On Oyster Farm Tour Aboard Historic Wooden Vessels

Embark on a Unique Journey

Begin your adventure with a scenic cruise departing from the lively Old Port, navigating through Portland Harbor and into the serene waters of Casco Bay. Aboard one of our historic wooden vessels, MONHEGAN or MARIE L, you’ll experience Maine’s natural beauty, passing by charming islands, classic tugboats, and historical landmarks. This cruise sets the stage for an immersive and educational oyster farm tour.

Dive into Aquaculture

Just a short ride from Portland lies the heart of Maine’s thriving aquaculture scene. You’ll dock at the Chebeague Island Oyster Company, where the farm’s operations come to life. Here, you’ll engage directly with the farmer, gaining firsthand insight into the intricacies of oyster cultivation. Learn about the farm’s history, the delicate process of growing oysters, and the significance of aquaculture in Maine.

A Taste of Freshness

As you savor fresh oysters straight from the source, you’ll not only taste the purity of Maine’s waters but also deepen your understanding of sustainable seafood practices. This tour offers a rare opportunity to connect with the environment and the people who work tirelessly to bring the ocean’s bounty to your plate.

Customize Your Experience

Choose between a 3-hour or 4-hour experience aboard our vessels. The 3-hour trip takes you directly to the oyster farm for an in-depth visit, while the 4-hour option includes additional time for sightseeing and exploring the picturesque Casco Bay. Please note that our tour timing is dependent on the tides, ensuring we arrive at the farm at high tide for optimal access.
