This may have been the most amazing excursion I have ever been on. Our driver Goldie made it the best with all the info and truly became a friend. The oyster experience was a once in a lifetime event. Shucked on the boat and put on the table. Wine tasting in a small family venue with a home style welcoming. I hope to do this adventure again.
