Here’s your chance to learn how to shuck oysters and then snack on these tasty mollusks. Hama Hama Co. is a 5th generation family-run oyster farm with a reputation for quality built on hard work and clean water. This 2-hour class is a hands-on experience. And after you’ve done the work, it’s time to eat – both raw and roasted oysters. If you aren’t an oyster lover, don’t worry, the meal includes charcuterie plates, baguettes and wine. Weather permitting, we’ll take a stroll on the beach before a quick stop at the Hoodsport Coffee Co for ice cream on our way home.
Our trip starts with a stop at the Squaxin Island Museum. The lives of the Squi-Aitl people centered around the rich resources of the sea, including harvesting oysters which were also highly prized trade goods. This Oysters Galore trip is the ideal event for history and ecology fans, foodies, and those looking to enjoy a truly unique experience.
