Price is per person!
New in 2021, the guided tour with Ranger who has extensive knowledge of the River Fal and the shellfish, including oysters, that are harvested here.
The tour will cover all aspects from the Mylor Shellfish purification centre and the SavingESTER micro hatchery at Mylor Yacht Harbour.
An explanation of the unique sailing fishing fleet, as well as the unique PDO Fal Oyster and his efforts to repopulate the native oyster, which is in serious decline and an explanation of why he set up the Fal Fishery Cooperative CIC
The 1-3 hour experience, depending on how many questions you ask, is only offered to small groups of 2-6 people from ‘one bubble’, partly due to COVID and partly so Ranger can really interact with questions from guests, giving a truly unique experience.
In addition, you’ll be able to experience the gastronomic delights of our shellfish with the opportunity to purchase shellfish to eat or cook at home and enjoy at the end of the day, however this and any drinks during the day are optional extras and payable separately.
Until we have our vessel approved you could also hire a little boat from Mylor Boat Hire, Ranger will then escort you up to the Aquaculture Research Site.
