OBX Oyster Tours
March 26 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm$99.00
Chef and oyster expert Dan Lewis (formerly of Coastal Provisions Oyster Bar) again invites you to learn about and enjoy oysters first hand with the help of coastal experts, oyster famers and a favorite local wine bar. The tour starts at the Wanchese office of the NC Coastal Federation to learn about oyster basics and their beneficial impacts on the environment, at their demonstration oyster farm. Then you’ll drive over to the Oregon Inlet Fishing Center and visit a commercial oyster farm, Savage Inlet Oysters, with growers Bobby and Stephanie Smith. Then tour will end at TRIO in Kitty Hawk for a tasting of NC Oysters from Chef Lewis of Wine & Brine OBX. Beverages will also be available for purchase at TRIO, including perfect oyster pairings of wine and beer. Transportation between locations is not included. Group size is limited to 6 people due to the size of the oyster boat. Dress appropriately for the weather, and with comfortable footwear for the boat. A portion of the event’s proceeds will support the NC Coastal Federation’s oyster reef restoration efforts.
