Virginia Oyster Academy Program

Proudly located on the Virginia Oyster Trail, your day begins with a short lecture on the history of Virginia’s oyster industry, oyster ecology, and tools of the harvest. Participants will then accompany a traditional Virginia waterman by boat for a one-hour harvest excursion. 

After the voyage, they will join the Tides Inn’s Executive Chef, TV Flynn, who will teach students the art of oyster shucking and how to expertly pair them with sauces and wine. 

DATES: The Oyster Academy takes place every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday during the fall season.

ACADEMY LOCATION: Tides Inn, Irvington, VA

PRICE: $185 per person, (parties of six get a discount of $155 per person).
