Next, it’s time for a tour highlight. Board the boat and travel with Pure Coffin Bay Oysters out to their oyster lease to learn about the oyster industry on the Eyre Peninsula. You’ll also shuck your own oysters and then taste them, understanding why Coffin Bay Oysters are recognised as the world’s best!
