As a long time oyster fan, Sponges tour was incredibly interesting and answered many of the questions i had always wanted to ask and then some...

Sponge is charismatic, knowledgeable and this is easily one of the best tours i have ever been on.

Absolutely loved this tour. Captain Sponge extremely knowledgeable in oyster farming as he is a oyster farmer and general local knowledge. Got to taste his freshly farmed oysters with lemon and pepper and they were absolutely delicious even my teenage daughters enjoyed them who had never tried oysters natural. Tour went for about 2 hours which was nice and relaxing. Would highly recommend this for anyone of all ages
