Bring an extra layer or windbreaker, as it can be much colder when the boat is moving on the ocean than on land. Since we encourage guests to get as hands-on as possible, it's best to avoid wearing your Sunday best. Closed-toed shoes are also recommended. We have plenty of traditional fishing overalls, rubber gloves, and lobsterman's jackets available for guests to borrow if you want a truly authentic farming experience!
Yes! Kids of all ages are welcome to come but we find that children ages 9+ get the most enjoyment out of this type of trip. We have a similar aquaculture trip that is designed for kids aged 4-13 if you are looking for a more kid friendly activity.
Yes, we absolutely love dogs! However, we kindly ask that you use good judgment. The boat rides, floating docks, and the ocean's sounds and smells can be overwhelming for anxious pups. Please ensure your dog is experienced and relaxed in such environments, and avoid using this trip as a test for their comfort.
Certainly! Feel free to bring your favorite drinks and snacks on board. Just remember to drink responsibly and be mindful of others.
Yes and no! While there isn't a strict limit, we do ask that guests be gracious with our resources.
Visit the Maine Oyster Company's self-serve oyster farm stand at our wharf in Phippsburg, open year-round. Additionally, they offer overnight shipping from multiple Maine oyster farms directly to your home!
Our oyster farm is just a 10-minute cruise through the harbor and into a quiet cove, away from the open ocean. While the seas are not always completely calm, we rarely have issues with people getting motion sick during such a short ride
Unfortunately this activity is not suitable for people with shellfish allergies.
Vibrio bacteria live in coastal waters throughout the world and consuming raw oysters can lead to illness if bacteria are present. Maine's cold waters significantly reduce this risk, and our safe handling, harvesting, and transporting practices make Maine among the safest States for eating oysters.
