Oysters Uncovered: The Kayak Edition
May 18 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Get ready for a fun afternoon on the water, followed by a delicious oyster tasting as part of this unique farm-to-fork experience.
Join us for one of our spring kayak adventures on the beautiful shores of Broad Creek where you will tour the Coastal Federation’s demonstration oyster lease and living shoreline. As part of this excursion you will explore the pristine coastal marsh and unique inhabitants on sit-a-top kayaks generously provided by Outer Banks Kayak Adventures!
The kayak tour will be guided by staff from Outer Banks Kayak Adventures and the Federation’s Coastal Specialist, Victoria Blakey. Victoria will help participants understand how oyster farms and living shorelines work and point out unique birds and marine life found along the shoreline.
After kayaking, you will retire to Blue Water Grill & Raw Bar for a sampling of a half dozen North Carolina oysters and Blue Water’s signature oyster shooter. Additional food and beverages are available for purchase, but are not included in the $75 event ticket.
Participants will be expected to fill out a waiver, which will be email to them, prior to the start of the event.
