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, a seasoned chef  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.
