Learn all you ever wanted to know about Crabbing and Oystering on this guided hands-on tour! Join local crabbing expert Jason Thorne where he will show us how to bait, and set the various
styles of traps/pots. Jason will talk about morphology, tides and the art of timing involved with catching crabs. At Oysterville Sea Farms, the oldest in operation, we will tour the cannery and learn more about the life-cycle & aqua-culture of oyster raising while we enjoy freshly shucked oysters, and hot tea (lunch available for purchase). Shuck and taste a wonderful oyster fresh from the bay! Then we’ll pull up a pot from the dock at the Port of Peninsula in Nahcotta . Bring our catch back to the Sou’wester and learn how to cook, clean and EAT these beautiful dungeness crabs!
