Who knew the process for finding, digging, measuring, and harvesting oysters? Not one person on our cruise excursion, that's for sure. Now we all do. This family is so sweet and opens their home to all who visit. John has a boat hiked up in the yard to show us how the process works. He offers to let us try... More

However, whenever I bring up our trip experience in the East Coast, they would always say "Happy Clammer" as their number one favourite. As for me, nothing can top eating raw oysters right at...

We also enjoyed a feast of all of these goodies after digging and it was delicious! If you are travelling to PEI, this experience is a must! We missed meeting Jackie but John was... More

John and Jackie are fantastic people that really went out of their way to teach us all about one of our favorite foods. The Oyster experience was more than we expected and really just an amazing time. If you love oysters then go visit Pinette River Oyster company for an amazing time. The clams were pretty great as well. Thanks... More

My seven year old twins, 86 year old mother-in-law, three middle aged family members spent the afternoon with John and Jackie. It was an excellent and very educational experience.
