NEW! Portland: Oyster Lovers Walking Tour

Quick Details


The World is Your Oyster…in Portland, ME!

Ever wonder about Maine’s world class oysters, how they’re raised, who raises them, why they taste so good, and how Maine feeds the world with them?

Join us on land as we embark on our Oyster Lovers Walking Tour through Portland’s historic waterfront and Old Port.

Maine has been harvesting oysters for a long time, and now there are over 150 farms along our 3,500 miles of rugged coastline growing a wide and delicious variety. Oysters here grow slowly, soaking up the flavors of the sea and influenced by their water temperature and salinity.

Your guide will educate you on the life and growth of oysters, their history, and curative powers as you enjoy several varieties both shucked for you and served at area restaurants.

The details:

We will gather for your 2 hour walk right outside Portland’s famous Harbor Fish Market where you will meet your guide. Then we will walk together along Casco bay stopping along the way to shuck oysters on the waterfront and tell stories about Maine’s oyster and commercial fishing industry, its award winning aquaculture and sustainable practices as well some of Portland’s history as far back as 1632!

After enjoying fresh shucked oysters on the waterfront, the movable tasting continues. We will then visit a restaurant or two to enjoy more oysters served in creative ways, paired with an adult beverage.

We Had a Great Time!
When you have a great time remember to tip your hard-working guide.
