Our Oysters on the Beach Tour is a 3 to 3.5 hour adventure leaving from our location at Yelvik’s Beach. We will paddle about an hour into Dabob Bay viewing seals, eagles and other wildlife before arriving at a small secluded beach where we will eat lunch, go swimming (if it’s warm enough), and learn to shuck oysters. Along the way your Marine Biologist or Naturalist guide will teach you about the Hood Canal and the wildlife we will encounter.
During crabbing season (July-Sept) you can also add kayak crabbing to your tour and catch your own Dungeness and Red Rock Crab! Harbor Seals, porpoises, river otters, fish, and many species of birds and marine invertebrates are a familiar site. More rarely, Orca, humpback whale, California sea lion and Steller sea lions have been spotted.
Bring your own lunch or arrange with us to provide a sandwich lunch from Pleasant Harbor Marina Galley ($16 each). Wear shoes that can get wet. Flip-flops and slip-on sandals are not advisable as there are many sharp oysters on the beach.
