We had a great time on our oyster tasting kayak tour in Batesman Bay. Our guide Garran was friendly and knowledgeable. At our stop at The Oyster Shack we got to have fresh oysters and learn all about oyster farming from the owner Jade. The kayak around the bay was an easy kayak and made for a great way to spend the morning.
