Blue Island Oyster Kayak Tour
Sun, sea, and fresh seafood is one of the best combinations Long Island’s got to offer. And the tour at Blue Island Oyster Company on the Great South Bay gets you up close and personal with all three (well, if the sun decides to cooperate, that is). Chances are, if you’ve ever eaten oysters in Manhattan, you’ve tried Blue Island’s crop before (they supply practically every seafood restaurant), but you’ve never had them direct from the source. On the tour, you’ll paddle a kayak right up to where Blue Points are grown, harvest your own snack, and slurp them down after a personal shucking lesson. Afterward, a light lunch with local beer and wines allows you to unwind with your fellow shuckers.
