Harbor View Hotel guests get an up-close look at the raising and harvesting of oysters from seed to market, while enjoying beautiful vistas of the Vineyard from the water. The vessel will take you to and from Oak Bluffs Harbor through Nantucket Sound, and along the shoreline to Cottarge City Oyster Farm in Oak Bluffs.

Cost = $150 per person

Tour includes:

  • Group tour for up to 20 guests aboard a 31’ custom, open deck oyster farm tour boat. The tour is educational and lasts about one hour.
  • You will journey out to Cottage City Oyster Farm
  • Enjoy as-fresh-as-it-gets oysters
  • Lemons, cocktail and hot sauces will be available.
  • A cooler full of ice for storage and complimentary bottles of water.
  • For those of you who want something stiffer than water, the tour is BYOB so come prepared

Tip: The boat does not provide much shade, so the appropriate attire can best be described as “beach wear” due to sun and wind exposure.
