Cruise over the sparkling waters of Clover Passage to the Hump Island Oyster Farm. Established in 2010, the farm offers a unique look at mariculture with samplings of oysters, snacks and refreshments. This exclusive adventure begins with a narrated ride along a coastal road that parallels scenic Tongass Narrows. En route to the departure site, your guide will share the area's culture and rough and tumble past. After a safety briefing, you'll board the USCG certified vessel that features a large deck and heated, covered indoor seating. After you arrive at this one-of-a-kind floating facility you'll embark on a behind-the-scenes look at the facility and oyster growing process. Meet the local critters in the touch tank and discover the canal's ecosystem with footage from an underwater drone. Before returning to Ketchikan, you'll be treated to a sampling of the locally harvested oyster and kelp products at the Oyster Bar.

Special Notes:

Guests must weigh a minimum of 40 lbs. Layered clothing and sensible shoes are recommended. The tour is not ADA accessible as there are multiple steps and uneven surfaces. Guests must be able to walk up 15 steps and navigate a tide-dependent ramp to access the vessel. Tour order may vary.
