Meet the Neighbours

Meet The Neighbors

This is an oyster lover's dream. Prince Edward Island, Canada is famous for its Malpeque oysters and you will spend a morning with an oyster fisher on Salutation Cove near Bedeque, PEI. You'll go out on the cove in a dory where you will get the opportunity to fish oysters using the traditional tonging method. Oyster fishing is done in shallow water so it is completely safe. After harvesting some oysters, you'll return to shore for a visit to the Future Seafoods plant where you'll see how they are cleaned, graded and packed for shipping worldwide. Then you'll learn how to shuck oysters so you can taste the sweet succulent flavour of an oyster just taken from the water.

My companion, my daughter and I took part in the Meet the Neighbors experience this past August. Not only was it a whole lot of fun and highly informative but it gave us an opportunity to spend time with Prince Edward Islanders in their working environment - a rare priveledge for a tourist!
