North Carolina Oyster Tour

Tour Description

On the North Carolina Oyster Tour, you’ll enjoy delicious samplings where the main dish is fresh local oysters! Your local guide will share stories about Beaufort’s history, as you see the many ways that oysters are prepared. You’ll also receive recipes paired with oils and vinegar to create their own oyster dishes at home.

At the end of the tour, each couple will receive one dozen Cedar Island Select Oysters packed for travel from Fishtowne Seafood in Beaufort. Single participants receive one-half dozen oysters.

Since its inception in 2004, Fishtowne has focused on buying local seafood harvested by local fishermen. The oysters come wrapped in authentic fish net from the original Net House in Beaufort. Known locally as the Seine House, the nets were made in Beaufort. So, participants get to take home a small piece of Beaufort’s maritime history.
